The 5TH Element Company Story
The 5th Element Company began as an idea Muhammad Luqman had. He was born in Pakistan. As a 17 year-old working in a Khewra Salt Mine, he learned the rare qualities of Himalayan Crystal Salt.
Just two-decades later, while traveling and studying across three continents, he discovered his calling. Establish a premium, state-of-the-art, Himalayan Salt brand in America.
Muhammad’s eureka moment came while reading a book, Water & Salt: The Essence of Life, which was recommended by a friend. Muhammad opened the Himalayan Salt Company after reading the book and being inspired by it.
His life changed forever!
While serving in Iraq, Muhammad encouraged a friend, Usman Butt, to join him in opening a business. The result of their work stands today as The 5th Element ™ the top-tier salt brand in America where it is registered in Virginia.
The 5th Element Company occupies a warehouse, corporate office in the United States today. A 27000 Square Feet FDA registered facility in Pakistan also houses the manufacturing, packaging, processing and storage of one-hundred percent, Himalayan Ionic Crystal Salt products.
The 5th Element Company imports and distributes packaged Himalayan salt and custom-made salt products throughout America and Canada.
With one dream completed, Muhammad continues to stick to his original mission of bringing 250 million years of nature from the magnificent Himalayan foothills to the world for a healthier and happier life.
