Pass the Salt, Please?

Looks like Mayor Bloomberg is trying to shake up the business of salt! Too much salt is bad for our health, so the National Salt Reduction Initiative (spearheaded by Bloomberg) aims to reduce sodium levels at restaurants in Manhattan and packaged foods nationwide.  Mayor Bloomberg recently announced 16 food companies that have decided to lose their shakers of salt.

Salt might be hazardous to your health, but it works wonders on the skin. That’s precisely why LUSH Cosmetics won’t be cutting salt from its kitchen anytime soon. In fact, we use loads of sea salt in our products like Ocean Salt Face Scrub, Geophyzz Bath Bomb, Sea Vegetable Soap, and Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub.

When used in skincare, salt helps remove dead skin and dirt without stripping natural oil, leaving skin soft and hydrated.

Recycle all that extra salt in your house by creating an at-home sea salt body scrub.  LUSH Product Creator Helen Ambrosen shows you how….

  1. Take 2 tablespoons of fine seat salt and mix to a paste with a heavy oil such as olive oil or Brazil nut oil.

  2. Wet the skin and apply to back of arms, legs, and anywhere the skin is rough.

  3. Rinse off skin.

  4. The best part is that you are not only using up unwanted salt, but also scrubbing your skin into summer shape – it’s a win-win!
