Salt & Stone was founded in 2017 by Nima Jalali. As a former professional snowboarder, Nima traveled the world experiencing a broad range of outdoor environments and conditions. Spending long periods exposed to the elements led him to understand their effects on the skin and body, and instilled in him the importance of protection. During his career, as he struggled with a series of injuries, Nima discovered that a natural approach in his diet and lifestyle optimized his recovery and performance. His personal demand for products (like chemical-free sunscreens and aluminum-free deodorants) that aligned with his natural lifestyle became a catalyst for the inception of Salt & Stone.
