COSMETIC MOOR MUD is the peat paste manufactured by Infertosa, a 100% natural product, produced with highly decomposed black peat which has formed through many centuries in the peatbog of Torreblanca, Castellón (España).
Its therapeutic effects are based on the combined influence of the antiseptic effects of peat and its biological active components, being particularly important the organic and humic substances of the peat, which penetrate the skin to cleanse it and influencing the enzymatic and hormonal activity.
When peat is applied on the skin, it penetrates in the epidermal cells and causes an ionic exchange with the albumin of the skin. Harmful cations are exchanged by anions having a rejuvenating effect on the skin. The most beneficial peat particles are captured by the veins and transported throughout the body where they help healing where necessary.
Its rejuvenating effects are attributed to the presence of essential oils, fatty acids and lipoids. These penetrate the skin and correct its pH balance. The application of peat on the skin stimulates blood circulation, which can be observed by the red colour of the skin after washing the treated skin.
INFERTOSA extracts its black peat of the deepest layers of the coastal peat bogs of Cabanes, Castellón, Spain, where the richness of humic acids is higher. The peat is extracted from below the water level mire, considering all the environmental, hygienic, and quality factors during the extraction and processing method. The finest natural fraction of this peat is used to make the COSMETIC MOOR MUD, ready to use, totally organic and natural product.
