In brief: Marketing

Sea salt theoretically is the salt remaining from collected, filtered and dried sea water. However it would contain a lot of minerals, some objectionable.
So it is probably purified salt with some additives for taste and color. The prices I have seen for this are astronomical but marketing deserves congratulations for making something so common, a pricey item.
