Pristine ocean waves

All-Natural & Unrefined

Solar evaporated Pure Ocean® Sea Salt is all-natural and unrefined. Made white by the sun and sea, the sparkling crystals are collected from Australian salt ponds, carefully crushed and screened to size and run through our proprietary Optically Clean® Technology.

These processes guarantee the salt’s purity while protecting the unique characteristics of each grain. Simple and pure with zero additives, allergens or anti-caking agents, Pure Ocean offers consistent and balanced flavor and texture with every order, making it the obvious choice for consumers looking for clean, quality salt.

Clean water means clean salt

Salt is a true reflection of its harvesting location. Pure Ocean is solar evaporated from the pristine waters of Australia. Unrefined, all-natural and organic compliant, Pure Ocean is ideal for use in a wide variety of food manufacturing, processing and repacking applications. The purity of the water source and natural trace minerals ensure an exceptional, straightforward flavor that makes this sea salt superior.

Abandoning Mediterranean Pollution

The Mediterranean Sea is one of the most polluted waters on Earth, with a high concentration of nano polymers, nano plastics, microplastics, heavy metals, toxic chemicals and other human-made contaminants. This pollution leads to salt that is no longer healthy for human consumption, but SaltWorks has a solution with our pristine Pure Ocean sea salt.

Optically Clean® Technology

Optically Clean Technology is a process developed by SaltWorks where an optical sorter inspects every single grain of salt for discoloration or unwanted foreign material. Before the optical sorter, we also run our Pure Ocean salt through a rigorous combination of sifters, aspirators, rare-earth magnets and metal detectors. In addition to improved food safety, this process results in delicious salt that looks as good as it tastes.
