Fleur de Sel based cosmetics
Our salt-based range combines the moisturising and exfoliating properties of pure, delicate Fleur de Sel and our premium quality organic essential and carrier oils. The range includes face and body scrubs as well as bath salts with unrefined salt, Rosa Damascena or Lavender oil combined with sweet almonds and coconut oil and sweet almonds meal.
Fleur de Sel, the most precious of salts, forms as a delicate crust on the surface of seawater evaporating on very sunny days with slow, steady winds. ARMINA’s fleur de sel is harvested in the Atanasovsko Lake, a lagoon in Bulgaria located in close proximity to the Black Sea. The area is protected as part of the Natura 2000 network. Famed for its beauty and pink colour, the lake provides a natural habitat for more than 600 bird and plant species!
Harvested by hand, our salt is unrefined with its full mineral potential unfolding a complex, subtle flavour. It is rich in β-carotene, natural iodine, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and others.
The low-intensity harvest dating back to 1905 is the only way for local people to make a living from the lagoon without disturbing its unique flora and fauna. By using Fleur de Sel from the Atanasovsko Lake, we work with the Bulgarian Biodiversity Association in a joint effort to support the conservation of its ecosystem.
