A collection of all-natural skincare formulations from California, Salt & Stone grow their ingredients without the use of pesticide and in ethical and sustainable ways making Salt & Stone's products as good for the environment as they are for your skin.
Born on the west coast of the USA, Salt & Stone was founded in Los Angeles, California in 2017. Its founder is Nima Jalali, a former professional snowboarder who had spent his sporting career in environments that were harsh on the skin.
As his career progressed, Nima realised that taking a natural approach to his diet and lifestyle enhanced recovery times from injuries. With that in mind, his approach to skincare would transition to the same way of thinking. From chemical-free sunscreens to aluminium-free deodorants, sourcing natural products which were also effective was a challenge.
Salt & Stone was created to help fill that void. The company's range continues to grow and already features some items which have become favourites with a host of athletes who led a similar lifestyle to him. Professional skateboarders, surfers, skiers and snowboarders around the world love the products so much that they have become Salt & Stone brand ambassadors.
The products that have been developed by Salt & Stone are described as 'green and clean'. They contain no pesticides, artificial fragrances, sulphates, silicones, parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates or GMOs and are never tested on animals. The packaging looks great and is also recyclable.
One of the leading products is the Salt & Stone SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion. Its formula carries a tonne of benefits for those who are out in the elements, including deep moisturisation and skin repair properties. Thanks to its non-nano zinc oxide, UVA + UVB rays are reflected away from the skin which helps to prevent premature ageing and promote younger and healthier looking skin.
A blend of natural herbal extracts also helps to calm irritated, red and inflamed skin thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties. Keeping practicality as a top priority, the sunscreen is also water resistant for up to 80 minutes, is light on the skin and will not leave white marks on clothing.
The Salt & Stone SPF 50 Sunscreen Stick is another product which has been developed to protect you from the sun's rays. The all-natural, organic sunscreen formula enhances your skin tone thanks to a natural tint, and this too is water resistant for up to 80 minutes. What' more, it actually becomes stronger when it comes in to contact with water or perspiration.
Keeping the environment at the forefront, the sunscreen stick is also reef safe, meaning that even when you're surfing in some of the world's most beautiful oceans, it's not going to damage the reef environment.
If you're looking for a natural deodorant which is aluminium-free, packed full of natural essential oils and unisex to boot, then the Salt & Stone Natural Deodorant with Lavender and Sage is a great option.
Finally, Salt & Stone's lip balms are not to be missed. If there is one area of your skin that can fall victim to harsh environments yet often gets ignored, then it's the lips. The Salt & Stone California Mint Lip Balm is a soothing, every day lip balm while there is also a Salt & Stone SPF 30 Lip Balm which is ideal if you're out in the elements.
