SAMANTHA SKYRING | FOUNDER OF ORYX DESERT SALT
Oryx Desert Salt is sourced from the remote, pristine and beautiful Kalahari Desert of Southern Africa.
The area is uninhabitable and the closest town is situated 175miles/250km. This area of 9,000,000 hectares (1,5x Texas) is free from pollution and contamination. Beneath a 5000 hectare salt pan, lies a 55 million ton underground salt lake. Renewed and sustained by three subterranean streams, that flow through ancient rock strata of 280million years.

“Salt is the smallest ingredient in any meal, but it makes the biggest difference to your food and your health.
Oryx Desert Salt offers one of the worlds purest, mineral rich, sustainable salts available.
Our grinders have a ceramic mechanism and so are 20x and more refillable, reusable and long-lasting. Our motto Refill Not Landfill. The ceramic head doesn’t grind plastic into your food.”

The streams collect the essential minerals & trace elements from the ancient rock strata together with the sodium chloride and converges in the lake. The 120% saturated brine / salt water gets drawn up onto the salt pan, where under the hot African sun of 120degF, with the desert wind in a 4 week lunar cycle it crystallizes into pure white crystals. Nothing is added, nothing is taken away.
Oryx Desert Salt is free from any chemicals, ant-free flow or anti-caking agents, neither does it have any micro-bead particles or any other human contamination. Salt is 3rd most important to the body after oxygen and water. Eating a mineral rich, unrefined, unprocessed & unpolluted salt is vital for hydration and our optimal health and well-being.
