What benefits does Wild Ferns Rotorua Mud has?
Wild Ferns Rotorua Mud is well known for skin whitening and has natural cleansing, antiseptic, healing and rebalancing properties because of its volcanic origin. The Rotorua Mud is rich in volcanic gases and minerals that gathered from the centre of the earth. Major minerals present in Rotorua Mud include silica, magnesium, calcium, titanium, iron, sulphur, phosphorus, sodium and potassium. It is best 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.. One of the minerals presented in the Rotorua mud which is Sulphur, a very odorous mineral which is very beneficial and acts as an antibacterial agent assisting in the prevention and elimination of acne.
The origin of Rotorua Mud
Since all Wild Ferns products are 100% New Zealand made and the country is well known for its extensive belt of thermal activity, the origin of Rotorua Mud comes from White Island, a live volcano at sea in the Bay of Plenty, and then travels west across Rotorua and the surrounding area, finally diminishing in the active volcanoes of Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu in the Tongariro National Park in the centre of the North Island. The mud itself was named after the place Rotorua which is located in an extremely active thermal region with active geysers, boiling mud pools, smoking fumaroles (cracks in the earth’s surface where highly pressurised water, or steam is released), hot water springs and former live volcanoes. Many spas and hot pools are using the same mud for it is renowned for its invigorating and healing properties.
Backed with long history of the rich properties of the thermal mud, our Wild Ferns Rotorua Mud skin whitening skincare products was extracted from the hot mud pools in Rotorua.
