Taking advantage of the cooling of the salina, crystallization occurs at sunset. This process promotes the formation of smaller salt crystals, rich in magnesium and potassium, which remain in the surface layer, creating a thin membrane of small crystals of salt.

The Salt Flower is collected by hand and does not undergo any washing or refining process. The Harvest occurs every day, when the weather conditions are ideal: on a sunny day with high temperatures and light wind. When the crystals are not collected in time, they sink to the bottom of the crystallizer, and become sea salt.

The collection is carried out using a wooden tool. The Salt Flower is left to dry in the sun and in the wind to obtain a pure product, without additives.

After this process the sea salt is removed, which is left to dry in the sun for a week, in order to lose some of its moisture, a strong characteristic of the traditional sea salt.
