When early settlers arrived at the Himalayan foothills, they were amazed at the rolling carpet of pink-speckled salt that seemed to stretch out into the horizon.

Many a jewel lies hidden deep in the Himalayan valleys. These jewels were fresh and scented, and the people that managed to scale the Mountains called them the herbs of the Himalayas.

The Himalayan kusuma flower was one of the earliest treasures, its yellow petals forming thousands of dazzling suns on the valley floor.

The kusuma granted a wealth of antioxidants to the skin it touched, firming it, repairing sun damage and imparting heavenly nourishment.
