What the Peat Bog People Can Tell Us About Beauty
Over the past centuries, remains of many hundreds of people--
men, women, and children--have come to light in peat bogs in
northwestern Europe, especially in Ireland, Great Britain, the
Netherlands, northern Germany, and Denmark. Peatlands are most
extensive in northern regions. They develop where drainage of
water is blocked, precipitation is retained, and decomposition
of organic matter is slowed. Because of their highly acidic
nature, wetness, low temperature, and absence of oxygen,
northern bogs have become a repository of past life.
The bog people are amazingly well-preserved with fingernails,
hair, and teeth in excellent condition. How is this possible
when the dates range from 8000 B.C. to the early medieval times?
The peat (Moor Peat) contained in the bogs has amazing
preserving properties which contribute to its ability to both
combat aging and enhance health. Peat has excellent moisture-
retaining qualities which improves skin elasticity.
When peat is applied to the skin, penetrates partially between
the epidermis cells of the skin. A, producing an exchange
reaction of ions is produced when the binding process with
albumin in the skin occurs. The harmful positive ions in the
skin tissues are exchanged for the rejuvenating negative ions in
the moor peat. These particles are captured by the blood vessels
in the system, carried throughout the body to help healing.
The rejuvenating benefits can be attributed to the abundance of
essential oils, fatty acids and lipoids. These penetrate into
the skin re-establishing the skin's natural pH balance. When you
apply the moor peat to your skin, the increased flow of blood to
the skin can be seen by the flush of color seen on the skin when
the peat is rinsed off. This characteristic of Moor Peat makes
it most effective as an addition to any anti-aging and beauty
treatment for the skin.
The soluble organic and inorganic active ingredients leave the
skin detoxified, purified, and toned. It's naturally
hypoallergenic and powerful and yet gentle.
The anti-inflammatory, bactericidal astringent and its
bioavailability properties of Moor Peat make it an excellent
skin treatment both for healthy and problem skin.
It has been found to be helpful in treating acne, eczema,
psoriasis, burns, scars, stretch marks, and cellulite.
For Cellulite, an inflammation of the subcutaneous tissues
caused by a build up of toxins, poor blood circulation and fluid
retention due to weak lymphatic flow, Moor Peat improves both
the inflammation and its causes, making it an excellent
treatment for cellulite and an aid to weight loss.
In fine spas Moor Peat (or Moor Mud) is regularly used as bath,
body wrap, and facial treatments. Cost for these treatments can
be as high as $150 for a body wrap, $100 for a bath, and $85 for
a mud mask or facial mask. These spa treatments can be done
successfully at home for fraction of the cost by purchasing fine
quality Moor Peat from a quality supplier such as Moor Mud Baths
