Introducing Spa Utopia 100% Organic Moor Mud

Throughout recorded history, various civilizations have understood the therapeutic and beauty benefits of applying mud to the body. Not the mud you'll find on the riverbank, of course, but mud derived from specific areas rich in organic elements that smooth, soften, detoxify and revitalize the skin. The ancient Romans, Turks, Celts and Wappo Indians were particularly enamoured with bathing in mud, understanding its remarkable ability to heal wounds, soothe aches and pains, and restore radiance to the skin.

Mud baths are therapeutic, healing treatments that help relax the body and restore the soul. Immersing yourself in a mud bath will draw toxins from the skin, ease tense muscles, alleviate inflammation and soothe arthritis-related joint pains.

One of the most beneficial muds, Moor Mud originates from moorlands that, over the aeons, have become exceptionally rich in organic elements. One of the best sources of Moor Mud is Canada's own Outaouais region, in southwest Quebec. The high humic acid* content of Moor Mud enhances its natural anti-inflammatory abilities, helping to reduce pain and muscle aches, minimize joint inflammation, and smooth the bumpy appearance of cellulite. Over 1,300 natural, organic plant enzymes, minerals, trace elements, amino acids and vitamins have been identified within the mud. Many of these elements increase metabolism and provide a natural ion exchange that results in detoxification. The mud also possesses natural astringent qualities to help eliminate bacteria and fight infection.

Moor Mud also contains natural cell-regenerating properties, and is a powerful antioxidant, fighting aging, and alleviating acne and eczema. This highly-beneficial mud is also recognized for its ability to naturally balance the hormones, as it is also a rich source of phyto-hormones (plant-based hormones).
