What is Hungarian Moor Mud?

Why Is Hungarian Moor Mud Good For The Skin?

The combination of transformative ingredients in moor mud has been observed and praised for thousands of years. The benefits of Hungarian moor mud for skin were first realised by the Romans when the wounds of their injured horses healed faster when they journeyed through the mineral-rich mud.

The Benefits Of Moor Mud For Skin

Renowned for its curative properties, Hungarian moor mud contains a precious blend of minerals, trace elements, and acids, to purify and re-balance the skin.

Moor mud harnesses the transformative powers of calcium and magnesium to help heal damaged skin. The combination of these nourishing minerals is what enabled the horses’ wounds to heal at a much faster rate. The presence of both humic and fulvic acid detoxifies and purifies the complexion, providing a deep cleanse that removes impurities.

Used regularly, moor mud helps balance sebum production to reduce breakouts, even skin tone, and tackle the early signs of ageing.
