Each “Island Bath” combines a special selection of all natural, freshly harvested premium sea salt, blended with an array of indigenous minerals, herbs, fruits and spices that epitomize the personality of each island.

The Making of Hawaiian Sea Salt Bath Collection On December 2009, the Spa Grande team traveled to Maui’s sister island, Moloka’i where they met with Hawaii Kai, Moloka’i salt masters, to understand the harvesting and healing powers of sea salt. With no polluting industries, no agricultural runoff, the waters of Moloka’i are among the cleanest in the world. Hawaii Kai is able to maintain the highest purity possible through its proprietary “Solar Seal” technology where Moloka’i water and the salt it yields are completely protected from outside elements and touch only food-grade materials during the entire “closed matrix” Solar Seal process. In addition to Hawaii Kai, Spa Grande also partnered with Ala Lani Bath & Body for the blending of indigenous organic herbs, fruits, spices and unique essential oils that epitomize each island.
