One of the most effective natural ingredients for the skin is sea mud. Packed with minerals and nutrients, it works as a moisturiser amongst many other things. A range of our brands available here at Mankind offer sea mud skincare products, providing a large range of benefits. Whether your skin is oily, sensitive or normal, it’s beneficial to all types, making it a staple in everyone’s regime.
What exactly does sea mud do for the skin? As mentioned earlier, it’s packed with minerals including magnesium, potassium and calcium, which promote blood circulation. In turn, this helps the body to carry toxins and wastes away from your cells. It’s also beneficial to those suffering with sports injuries or rheumatic conditions including arthritis. This is because it soothes and relaxes aching, sore bones and muscles.
Whilst taking care of you from the inside, the sea mud is providing a number of benefits to the visible skin at the same time too. By exfoliating and detoxifying the skin, it draws out impurities, making it great for oily, acne-prone skin. For those suffering with skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis and vitiligo, it can prevent flare ups and dramatically reduce symptoms during them as well.
The Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar is designed to calm stressed out and irritated skin. Utilising the therapeutic benefits of Dead Sea mud, it balances the skin for a healthy looking complexion with restored vitality. Containing a blend of minerals, glycerin, palm and palm kernel oils, it detoxifies, exfoliates and moisturises the skin. Acting as a magnet for hydration, it seals in moisture whilst stimulating cell regeneration. Fatty acids are also used to mimic the same nourishing oils and pH balance already found in the skin.
The Dead Sea Spa Magik Rich Moisturiser is a lightweight, fast-absorbing moisturiser specially formulated to hydrate, nourish and protect skin. Suitable for all skin types, this moisturiser contains extracts of mud, salt and minerals from the Dead Sea. These replenish, soothe and revitalise for a calm, healthy complexion. Providing broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, it also shields the skin against sun damage. This prevents signs of premature skin ageing including wrinkles and age spots.
The NIOD Flavanone Mud Mask uses innovative Dispersion technology and a three phase formula. This creates a thin, rinse off layer over the skin. Providing a deep cleanse to decongest, clarify and revitalise, skin is left clear and healthy. Phase 1 uses black Amazonian clay, copper-rich Brazilian clay and titanium. These are used to dissolve surface impurities, excess oil and pollution whilst reinforcing skin barrier function. The second phase uses Sea polysaccharide to shields against environmental aggressors and fight inflammation, preventing premature ageing. Phase 3 uses Flavanone to support the natural immune system.
