Sapropel Story

mud bath for skincareSapropel: Nature’s Wisdom

…and the key to healthy skin.

Sapropel is a dermatological – and geological – phenomenon!

A mud found in a handful of lakes across North Eastern Europe, it’s been used for centuries as a natural skincare treatment.

And today, it’s the basis of a whole range of steroid & paraben-free products.

Sapropel’s secret lies in its ability to remove toxins and metals from the skin – drawing out impurities before restoring the skin’s natural moisture. It’s a different approach that sets our products apart from traditional remedies, that work by sealing chemicals into the skin.

Sapropel is full of natural vitamins and minerals, which are well known to help boost the body’s own immune system boosting the body’s ability to fight afflictions such as warts or skin tags and other irritable sensitive dry skin issues.


How is Sapropel formed?

Like any natural substance, Sapropel only thrives in the right conditions. It needs glacier-created waters and a cool local temperature, so dissolved oxygen is limited – prohibiting natural decomposition.

In this environment, lakeside reeds begin to form debris. Then over thousands of years, the deposits bind together…storing a blend of lipids and vitamins.

We call the end product Sapropel.

And while the raw sediment is messy and mud-like, its applications are vast – a fact that was recognised hundreds of years ago, by local farmworkers who used it to relieve the sores and wounds of manual labour.

Mud based products have been used by the locals of Eastern Europe, for hundreds of years. In Russia and Hungary, even today, there are spas where people immerse themselves in tubs of the warmed sediment.

Their skin is softened and gently exfoliated, as natural properties are restored…it’s a relaxing way to treat all manner of sensitive skin conditions.

These cultures have put their faith in Sapropel mud. But in the modern western world, we look for solid assurances. So our researchers have put nature’s wisdom under the microscope. And as you can see, all our findings are confirming the legend that’s been handed down and shared through the centuries:

Sapropel provides a safe, natural and highly effective treatment for people of all ages – relieving the symptoms of eczema, dry or cracked skin and a host of other conditions.

It’s our mission to provide safe, natural skin care products to people who need relief from symptoms and irritation, Check out our testimonials.

Today, we take Sapropel’s best properties and couple the extracts with natural oils, to treat all types of skin conditions.

Sapropel’s properties include:

  • Lipids: fatty acids that nourish dehydrated skin
  • Vitamins that control healing and maintain the skin’s appearance
  • Minerals that nourish, rejuvenate and repair
  • Humic and fulvic substances that repair and restore skin cells
  • Amino acids that prevent dehydration and build a healthy skin

Working together, these diverse properties repair and maintain the skin: neutralising acids…capturing toxins…exfoliating…hydrating…creating a natural paraben-free alternative to traditional skin care.

“It keeps my dry skin moisturised, and the gentle exfoliating properties leave my skin feeling soft and beautifully scented”
