Know the story behind Lush’s bestselling classic Ocean Salt

This bestselling classic is a must-have for most skin types looking to add radiance to both face and body with scrubby sea salt and brightening lime.

Refreshing, exfoliating, hydrating…what doesn’t this scrub do?

The cult classic scrub has a mineral-rich mix of fine and coarse sea salt for serious exfoliation, balanced with coconut oil and avocado butter to soften the skin.

That punchy citrus scent?  It comes from lime oil as well as limes extracted in vodka to brighten and tone.

Lush highlights the positive impact that purchasing sea salt directly from local producers has on their ancestral practices and on the region’s natural habitats.

The Salinas do Samouco Complex, in the Tagus estuary, is a feeding, refuge and nesting place for thousands of birds. The area is also rich in vegetation, with over 400 different plant species.

In the 20th century, these salt pans were abandoned in favor of chemically produced salt or cheaper options in France and Spain. Today, traditional practices that harvest salt by hand and respect nature have returned to these salt pans. Due to the global rise in sea water levels and urban development, salt pans are one of the most threatened habitats. Buying salt, salicornia or dried flowers from these passionate growers will help support the conservation of this indispensable ecosystem.

Our crystals are free from pesticides, garbage, heavy metals and radioactivity. They are completely unrefined to ensure all minerals are present and thus provide maximum benefit to the skin.


The hand-picked sea salt used in the Ocean Salt scrub is rich in sodium, magnesium and other minerals. Cleansing your skin with products that contain sea salt is an excellent way to benefit from all these mineral salts and natural antiseptic and astringent properties; they help to lighten the skin and increase blood circulation.

Sea salt is a natural preservative that helps products stay clean and free from microorganisms when used in proper amounts.
