Is Your Salt Lamp Safe?
If you purchased a genuine Salt Skill Himalayan lamp, you are covered. Salt Skill only uses UL certified and/or UL recognized electrical components in all of our salt lamp products. UL Certification has been the standard in the Unites States since 1894. About UL Certification. We cannot speak as to the safety of other brands’ electrical components as we do not know their quality standards.
Salt Lamps Increasing In Popularity
Because of increased demand over the last five years, companies looking to make a quick buck have been importing salt lamps of questionable quality. In fact we often hear from customers who were tempted by a low priced salt lamp, only to find their hopes dashed after receiving a poor quality lamp.
We suggest that, when considering a salt lamp, you chose a reputable and high quality salt lamp manufacturer that uses only UL certified electric elements.
How Do I Tell If My Salt Lamp is Safe?
If you purchased a salt lamp in the last five years, it is very important that you check your cord for a stamp that says UL and looks like the photo here. Typically, the stamp is on the switch housing.
Do Not Tamper with Switch Housing
If, for any reason you feel your salt lamp is not working as it should, do not attempt to repair or tamper with the switch housing in any way. Please contact the manufacturer of your salt lamp for a replacement or a refund. BUYER BEWARE! Before ordering, be sure to confirm that your supplier uses UL certified replacement cords.
Increase Your Health, Not Your Stress
