This skin renewing estuary treasure helps exfoliate dead skin cells, remove skin contaminants, and rejuvenate damaged or troubled skin. It nurtures your skin with more than 50 beneficial minerals and trace elements, including zinc and sea botanicals.
Apply a generous layer of mud to skin, avoiding mouth and eye areas. Let mud dry 15 to 20 minutes or until it turns a light aquamarine color. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use Epoch® Glacial Marine Mud™ two to three times a week.
Ethnobotanicals are plants or herbs that are tied to a region and its people, so our Glacial Marine Mud doesn’t strictly fall into this group. This unique ingredient does, however, fit with our other Epoch products, because it has a rich traditional history of use in the Pacific Northwest to help condition and rejuvenate skin.
All Canadian governmental regulations are followed in the extraction of the mud. Every day, the mud is covered by 8–10 foot tides. When the tides go out, the mud is mined. The upper layer of mud is removed, and the mud is harvested from a 3–4 foot depth to ensure consistency. All holes are then filled with rocks and the top layer of mud is replaced. The mud is constantly replenished from the tides and nearby mountain springs and is located in a very remote area—two and a half hours by Jeep on a dirt road and two hours by boat from the closest road.
