Rich in rejuvenating minerals Wild Ferns Rotorua Mud has natural cleansing, antiseptic, healing and rebalancing properties because of its volcanic origin. Rotorua Mud is rich in volcanic gases and minerals from the centre of the earth. Major minerals present in Rotorua Mud include silica, magnesium, calcium, titanium, iron, sulphur, phosphorus, sodium and potassium.
Rotorua Mud is excellent for use in regenerative skin care as it has a very strong affinity for moisture. This mud on drying will generate heat, increasing the blood circulation and perspiration which help eliminate toxins and other wastes. It easily absorbs excess oils and fatty secretions from within the skin’s pores, detoxifies and purifies and, as the mud dries on the skin, helps promote the regeneration of new cells. Sulphur, while a very odorous mineral, is very beneficial and naturally occurring in Rotorua Mud, which acts as an antibacterial agent assisting in the prevention and elimination of acne.
