Skin care, Alaska styleBack To Blog
Calling all skin care fiends! Several skin care brands in Alaska take advantage of the state’s natural ingredients such as wild berries, sea salt and glacial mud to create skin care products you’ll love. Below are some of our favorites and where to buy them when you’re here, or order online if you can’t wait for your next visit!
Alaska Salt Co. was founded in Homer on Kachemak Bay where salt is still harvested right from the “Spit,” a 4.5-mile sliver of land that shoots into the bay. Products range from hair care to skin care and bath bombs, all made with salt harvested from the sea. While the flagship store is located in Homer, there’s also a store in 5th Avenue Mall in downtown Anchorage. If you’re not planning on visiting Homer or Anchorage anytime soon, you can order Alaska Salt Co. products online.
