Great Salt Lake Mineral Mud
The mineral mud of the Great Salt Lake is unique. The lake is very shallow with an average depth of 13ft. With the fluctuation of spring runoff and summer evaporation, the shoreline expands and shrinks dramatically. This allows the 1.1 million tons of minerals, brought down from the Wasatch Mountains yearly by the three main rivers, to distribute the minerals over the large shoreline. This natural process means that the lake’s mud is abundantly rich in minerals. The lake’s shores contain oolitic sand, which are small rounded, or spherical grains made up of a nucleus (generally a small mineral grain) and concentric layers of calcium carbonate (lime) that look similar to very small pearls. Because of the unique type of sand, the Great Salt Lake mud has a natural exfoliation that helps polish the skin, with no sharp edges that may cause skin damage.
Another quality that sets Ojaván’s Mud apart from the others is simply Trace Minerals & Elements. Trace Minerals & Elements provide a bounty of healing properties that have been scientifically validated for their use in topical applications. The human skin is the largest organ of the body and has a tremendous capacity to absorb health supportive substances. Because we won’t strip the mud of any trace minerals and elements, our mud will work with all skin types. The Mud that Ojaván uses comes from a very remote region of the northwest section of the Great Salt Lake. This part of the lake is separated from the south half by the Lucin Cutoff built in 1959. Because of this, the northwest area or Gunnison Bay has become substantially denser with minerals and elements and a species of algae that releases beta-carotene or pro-vitamin A, which is very good for the skin. All our mud is hand harvested, after the protective layer of salt has been removed. The mud is around 250 million years old and has had thousands of years for the mineral rich waters of the lake to infuse it with over 70 Trace Minerals and Elements that match what our body needs for beautiful, young looking, healthy skin.
The final item that really makes Ojaván Npató Mineral Mud unrivaled is the water. The heavy Mineral Water that is infused into our mud has been pumped from the lake and solar evaporated for up to two years on Crystal beds. This process allows the water to become more enriched with the Trace Minerals and elements that help feed your skin the nutrients it needs to remain healthy and look beautiful. The water is then re-infused into the mud for the final product. Our mud is a one of a kind facial and body mask that really cleans and polishes the skin.
