For centuries, people have flocked to the Dead Sea to partake in its healing and beautifying benefits. Many spa therapies, like wraps, and body products, like masks, have been developed from the Dead Sea mineral waters and mud. Cosmetically speaking, there are great benefits to incorporating a mineral mud into your skin care routine. Hey, if it’s good enough for Cleopatra, it must be good enough for us!
TimeLess carries Ojavan’s mud, which is developed from Utah’s own dead sea, The Great Salt Lake.
What makes this mud so great?
With the fluctuation of spring runoff and summer evaporation, the Great Salt Lake’s shoreline expands and shrinks dramatically. This process allows millions of minerals from the Wasatch Mountains to distribute the minerals across the lake’s shoreline. The shores are made up of oolitic sand, which are small rounded, pearl-like grains. This unique, smooth sand can be used as a natural exfoliatiant to polish the skin, without damaging or sharp edges.
Trace Minerals and Elements
The variety of Trace Minerals & Elements it offers is what sets Ojavan’s mud apart from any others available. Scientifically, Trace Minerals & Elements provide a bounty of validated, healing properties for their topical use. As the body’s largest organ, our skin has great capacity to absorb health supportive substances.
How is it made?
Ojavan’s mud is harvested after its protective layer of salt has been removed. The mud is millions of years old with thousands of years for the mineral rich waters of the lake to infuse it and match our bodies’ needs for healthy skin. The heavy mineral water that is infused into the mud is pumped from The Great Salt Lake and solar evaporated for up to two years on crystal beds. This process enriches the water to help feed our skin the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and function. At last, the mineral water is then re-infused into the mud for the final product.
