Like salts, clays and peats, muds from hot springs and volcanoes are rich in minerals such as magnesium, potassium and sodium, nourishing the skin and body. With an alkaline pH and negative ionic charge, muds also have a gentle pulling action, which shrinks pores, exfoliates and detoxifies. This promotes a more youthful complexion, hence the popularity of mud masks.
Mud from the Dead Sea contains the highest concentrations of minerals and scientific studies have shown that it’s particularly beneficial for psoriasis, eczema and acne and has also proven useful in the treatment of rheumatologic diseases, including arthritis.
