Kikaboni's rare premium green wildcrafted raw sea moss is imported fresh from the pristine waters of the remote Caribbean island of St. Lucia. When you smell our dried sea moss, you smell the freshness of the ocean. When soaked, it is tasteless and odorless. Due to the careful process of it being harvested to maintain its color, the sea water is lightly rinsed off so users may notice a light coating of dried salt on the surface. This is normal as it is just dried saltwater. Absolutely nothing is added to the sea moss, it is 100% NATURAL.
