Moor Mud or Balneo-Peat is an organic substance, a product of natural decomposition of multitudes of plants under special conditions. It is unlike any other mud in the beauty, spa or medical industry. Containing almost no clay it is comprised of the organic remains of flowers, plants, herbs and grasses. Over a period of thousands of years these residues turn into a paste that easily dissolves in water and has an unusual concentration of bio-minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, plant hormones and fatty acids. These substances are readily absorbed into the skin due to Moor Mud's unique colloidal structure, making it ideal for cosmetic and therapeutic use.
Moor Mud increases collagen and skin cell production and can even stimulate the fibers of the nervous system between skin cells, improving the look and feel of maturing skin.

Recently Moor Mud’s ability to alleviate the problems of both acne and maturing skin has been its primary uses in the beauty industry. Locally I found that Moor Mud was virtually unknown. I was the first to create and sell Moor Mud bars in this vicinity. After making my first batch of Moor Mud bars I had no sales for several weeks until I ended up giving about 15 bars away at no charge other than they had to promise use it for a month and then come back and tell me how it performed and if they liked it.
