White vs. Pink Himalayan Salt: What’s the Difference?

Part of the innate beauty of Himalayan salt comes from the fact that it’s 100 percent pure and naturally occurring. That means that no two salt crystals will ever look exactly the same. Veining throughout the salt from varying levels of minerals gives way to amazing differences in pattern and color, ranging from pale white, to pink, to orange, to red. Talk about natural beauty!

So what’s the difference in the colors? The deepness of the salt’s color largely depends on the amount of iron oxide running through it. White Himalayan salt (the rarest variety) is the freest from impurities, while added minerals give pink Himalayan salt its rosy glow. From a health standpoint, pink and white both pack the 84 naturally occurring minerals, and both are rich in negative ions, which are wonderful for combatting overexposure to positive ions and offer great health benefits such as stress reduction, energy increase and more. That’s why Himalayan salt walls — made from both white and pink salt blocks — are such a wonderful way to enhance your spa guest’s experience.

Saltability and TouchAmerica offer multiple options for adding salt walls into your spa environment, and spas can choose the colors they want (white or pink) and how they’d like them incorporated. Every salt wall is unique, yet they all deliver a purifying, soothing experience. It’s beauty and benefits in one.
