Asia Import (under the brand Jevatee), our supplier, harvests its crystal salt from the deepest and purest level of a salt mine in the Himalayas. The purest, nearly transparent crystals, which look like uncut diamonds, come from a thin bottom layer of the mine, the location of which is a highly guarded secret. Salt rocks of 30 to 50 kg are manually cut out in the mine and tracked from this point on by an internationally accredited independent company.
Transported to the production facility in Delhi, they are once again tested both by the above-mentioned company and our chemical engineer. They are cleaned, sun dried and finally sorted by color. The darker stones are processed into bathing salt. The purest stones are cut by hand into pieces of between 20 and 60 grams each, washed in brine and sun dried.

While the bath salt production is done in India by our Indian employees - none of whom are children - the pure salt is shipped to Germany, where it is again tested by the accredited laboratory that authorizes the well-deserved seal of excellence used on all of our products. Further processing takes place in the Bavarian countryside town of Raisting, Germany, the headquarters of Asia Import. Here, mill salt and cooking salt are produced by local down-to-earth people whose commitment to Asia Import knows no office hours. Their ingenuity, devotion and care is helping our company evolve in a very organic way.
