Purealt / Salt Cleaner

Purealt
Purealt

As the number of humans is increasing, so is the plastic waste that is thrown away. Among them, microplastics made from plastic decomposition are increasingly threatening humans. Purealt is a product that cleans microplastics attached to salt. Salt is more likely to be exposed than any other food ingredient as plastic waste is dumped in the sea the most. When salt water, salt, and microplastics are washed together, salt and microplastics can be separated due to differences in specific gravity and cleaner salt can be obtained. Purealt cooks without worries and is responsible for the health of future children.
