The Story of Our Clay Salts
Shhh – Terra Supra (and Saskatchewan) has a beauty secret….
Did you know there is a saltwater lake in southern Saskatchewan with legendary healing waters? This mineral rich salt lake, known as the Dead Sea of Canada, is fed by groundwater and underground springs formed millennia ago.

Millions of years ago, the Western Interior Seaway covered much of Saskatchewan connecting the Arctic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. Over time, this inland waterway became isolated. The relatively shallow sea evaporated in the hot, dry climate and left behind deep layers of nutrient rich salt. Terra Supra Skin Care clay salt exfoliants, come from this ancient sea, and are laden with minerals – sodium, magnesium, calcium, and potassium, the same minerals found in the legendary salt water of the lake previously mentioned. Terra Supra clay  salt exfoliants are incredibly good for the skin and we are proud to bring the amazing healing and skin care benefits of these extraordinary ancient salts to the world.

Terra clay salts provide exceptional exfoliation by gently removing dead skin cells to reveal clearer, radiant, more youthful looking skin. Around thirty, cell-turnover starts to slow down, making exfoliation increasingly important as we age. For the thinner, more sensitive skin of the face, neck, and décolletage, exfoliate one to three times per week depending on the sensitivity of the skin. Besides the face, neck and chest, our Terra salts are perfect for elbows, knees, and heels where skin tends to be thicker and harder. Knees and elbows are some of the hardest working joints in the body, so the outer skin tends to feel a little drier and rougher. Scrubbing these body parts two to four times per week rids them of dead, dry skin to reveal the healthier, more youthful skin below.

Besides their amazing ability to exfoliate Terra clay salts are naturally antiseptic and anti-inflammatory and help heal open wounds such as acne blemishes. Yes, the salt may sting on application, but this sting indicates healing has begun. Our mineral rich salts also stimulate the skin to perform functions such as oil production and help bring blood and oil to the skin’s surface. This aids hydration, which helps firm the skin by balancing moisture beneath the surface. Our salts keep mucous membranes moist and increase cell regeneration, giving skin greater elasticity. In addition, our mineral salts boost the immune system by penetrating into the skin, strengthening blood vessel walls.

The four minerals of our salts have specific skin benefits. Sodium helps restore the skin’s protective barrier helping hold hydration. Magnesium supports the synthesis of collagen and protects skin from harmful free radical damage that can ultimately lead to wrinkling and skin damage. Magnesium also helps maintain water balance in cells and is a natural skin toner, refresher, allergy fighter, moisture retainer and helps tighten skin. Calcium works with the epidermis to produce sebum, a natural, skin-coating substance that helps skin maintain its natural moisture. Although potassium is not absorbed through the skin, topically it enhances skin’s pH, moisture, and texture. Potassium also has antibacterial and astringent effects on the skin.

Our Story

Growing up in Western Canada in the 1970’s sometimes felt like living in the wild west! Our father was a park ranger and we lived in several small towns and parks across central Alberta. While we never had a lot of money, we always had lots of food! Food we grew! We always had a huge garden and grew the vegetables that would see us through winter. In the summer we suffered mosquito bites to gather wild strawberries, blueberries, Saskatoon berries, and cranberries. With the fruits of our labor, our mom crafted amazing pies and jams. We were always very conscientious about water and power use and often wandered through the park collecting recyclables to return for pocket money.

In the early 1990’s, we embraced our sense of adventure as fantastic travel and work opportunities came our way. Corinne left for the The Cayman Islands and brother Dean left for Japan. These beautiful countries both celebrate a life of joyful simplicity. In Japan, Dean learned about and shared the Japanese philosophy of Ikigai.

Ikigai is about finding happiness and fulfillment in the sum of small joys of everyday life. It is also about finding one’s passion, and putting that purpose into action. This has enabled us to marry our childhood experiences with our business philosophy. We are passionate about providing natural, high quality, safe, skin care products that embody simplicity and authenticity. We are passionate about inspiring people to embrace the bounty of the natural world while respecting the Earth. We are passionate about promoting a lifestyle that strives to balance the spiritual with the practical, based on the understanding that everything is connected. We are passionate about helping people feel good about themselves and reconnecting with those around them through the power of touch. Terra Supra is all about bringing you and your loved ones back to that first soft touch.

With Love,

Corinne
