No perfect salt mix?

I was wondering, why can no one manufacturer make a salt mix with the ideal element levels. I hear about people mixing salts to obtain ideal elemnt levels. I'm sure this is an age old question, but just had to ask. Wonder if they do that to try and keep each other in buisness?

Because "ideal" is a subjective thing, and the companies have to distinguish themselves from each other in some way.

Well "ideal is subjective" is true, but, one would think that if a smart business man would come out with something with desired numbers and consistency, that person would distinguish themself from the rest of the pack. I see what some of these salt mixes cost and just about pass out, and people still have to mix them with something else to get their "happy" level wants or needs.
