WHAT MAKES REDMOND ROCK
DIFFERENT FROM HIMALAYAN
Is Redmond Rock a better choice than Himalayan rock? Yes, we think so! 100% of our mineral salt is mined and packaged right here in the USA. We kind of like that. Redmond Rock also contains around 7% natural mineral content compared to 3% of most Pakistani-mined Himalayan rock.
