Black Mud Soap
Black mud soap is a growing phenomenon within the cosmetics world for its rich mineral content and refreshing, fragrance-free, skin-healing properties. Ideal for skin types that are intolerant to conventional soaps, this natural alternative is free from animal fats and SLS. This is, as you have probably guessed, no ordinary mud that is used. Unlike the mud found in your back garden, which contains silt and clay among other things, Dead Sea black mud is full of mineral goodness such as magnesium, potassium and calcium in addition to Dead Sea salts.
But how will black mud soap benefit my daily skincare routine I hear you say. Well here are just some of the ways black mud soap can boost you and your skin’s well-being:
- Balances skin pH, leaving skin feeling fresh and re-vitalised
Your skin’s pH is actually mildly acidic; optimal skin pH is 5.5 which helps fend off bacteria and fungi that can be harmful. Most conventional soaps are alkaline which can react with your skin’s acidic barrier and leave it neutralised, harming it and leaving your skin prone to acne, dryness and more serious conditions such as infection.
Black mud soap will leave your skin’s natural pH balance as it is, or restore it to normal if previously damaged.
- Leaves skin hydrated unlike conventional soaps
Due to the skin-balancing properties and high mineral content, black mud soap will leave the skin feeling hydrated and fully cleansed after use.
- Can be used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis
Again, this is due to the high mineral content of the soap. Like many products using Dead Sea salts and minerals, Dead Sea black mud will help with the treatment of common dry-skin complaints such as eczema and psoriasis.
- Leaves the skin feeling taut
It has been said that black mud soap can help with reducing the appearance of wrinkles, tightening the skin and therefore, making it a useful product in your anti-ageing skincare regime!
- Removes impurities
Black mud and therefore, black mud soap can remove impurities by unclogging your pores and remove dead skin cells, cleansing your skin in the process. Why not try a black mud mask as well?
So whether you want to cure or ease a skin condition or just want a soap that won’t dry out your skin, give black mud soap a try! Many others have and have never gone back.
