Bath salts are basically mineral salts that are broken down into fine particles that can easily be absorbed in the water.  These bath salts are naturally occurring minerals that help the skin to rejuvenate and replenish it. Plus, bath salts are also known to cure some skin conditions by inducing and controlling the production and absorption of minerals on the skin.
