Organic Ocean Mud… the perfect sphere for facial exfoliation and body scrubs
Did you know ocean mud holds unique health benefits for face and body?
In keeping with Thalassotherapy philosophy, Seaflora incorporates Pacific Northwest, organic ocean mud as our exfoliation ingredient in several of our facial skincare products: Iridaea Exfoliator, Potent Sea Kelp Exfoliator, and our body classics, Ocean Mud Pedi Scrub, and Wild Rockweed Exfoliant.
Here’s how it works. Powerful ocean movements allow the absorption of rich trace minerals, while the ever-pounding wave action smooths and rounds out each and every ocean mud grain until it’s as polished as glass. What this means is that Seaflora’s ocean mud makes for the “perfect sphere” for the “perfect exfoliant”…for the most sensitive of skin types.
Can you believe it… in addition to our wild seaweeds, we hand-harvest wild ocean mud. It’s safest for the environment without chemicals or artificial abrasions. Seaflora has never used microbeads. Otherwise listed as nylon, polyethylene (PE), polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), nylon, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polypropylene (PP).
Microbeads, those tiny plastic beads skincare companies use in personal care products for the ‘feel good’ factor are washed out through our drains and water systems to enter our environment by the billions every day. The scientific research is clear; microbeads raise health and safety concerns about the environmental impacts on our lakes, rivers and oceans. They absorb toxins in the water, are eaten by marine life and are making their way to our dinner plates. Many governments, including Canada are moving to ban industry microbeads, however, they are still used.
So very different our natural ocean mud is, in that it’s hand-harvested, and like our wild seaweeds, it’s inspected and organic. It’s granular, light weight and contains mineral elements to efficiently retain moisture. Its composition of non-soluble silicates, carbonates and soluble minerals, acts to hold heat. When you use gentle circular motions to spread it on your body, you are improving circulation. Ocean mud’s warming characteristics are good for achy joints, tired muscles and inflammatory conditions. It removes dead skin cells and soothes, smooths and sculpts.
Ocean mud works well for body treatments, but it’s especially effective for the gentle cells on your face. Think of it as the ocean’s micro-derma polisher. It’s suitable for all ages, all skin types and with gentle pressure and circular movements, it cleanses and removes dirt particles, impurities and toxins. It opens pores, while favouring the passage of minerals.
My favourite is Iridaea Exfoliator. Great for mature skin, (like mine) that is also normal/combination. A gentle, active facial micro-derma polisher blended with wild seaweeds, rose hip seed oil, aloe vera and black willow botanicals to keep skin smooth and radiant by polishing away flaky, dry, dead skin cells. It improves tone, elasticity and hydration levels for a healthier looking, more vibrant complexion.
