Rémy Laure searched in the whole world for all the pure terrestrial muds with beauty benefits.
Extracted from the heart of our Earth (alpine valleys, lakes, wild countryside), enriched by centuries of slow evolution, protected from pollution, these muds coming from the different continents are thoroughly studied to enable a rational use as effective as possible.
Each mud has particular benefits, which are exploited by Rémy Laure to energize your beauty. Natural, generous, effective, the Moortherapy is the answer to environmental esthetic concerns. Since human being exists, he is nourished by the Earth. Now, thanks to the Earth and Rémy Laure, his original beauty is replenished.
Minerals and skin
The request for natural products in beauty care is increasing to meet the demands of the stressful and polluted life of the XXI century. Rémy Laure, thanks to the Black Mask and the Natural Black Mud, was a forerunner. This mud contains hundreds of trace elements and minerals that have a proven effect in the beauty of the skin.
Life causes cellular fatigue (stress, pollution, chemical attacks, inappropriate diet, etc. …). In order for the skin not to be a reflection of this loss of cellular energy, it must be provided with the necessary fuel via the work of the mitochondria. These are small factories inside the cells that use the adenosine triphosphate called ATP. This ATP, in the biochemistry of all living beings, provides the necessary energy for the chemical reactions of the metabolism. In particular, magnesium, copper and zinc “feed” the mitochondria. The alteration of these factories creates an accumulation of cellular toxins, a decrease of their immune defense and a slowed metabolism. Bio-electricity is normally present in the skin but with age, it decreases in intensity (-50% at 65 years) which slows the cellular metabolism. Minerals act as mini-batteries that stimulate their activity.
The minerals contribute to the balance of the skin, to the regeneration of the epidermis and its protection by ensuring micro-circulation and water content.
Minerals have a specific role, they act in synergy, they maintain the Ph value of the skin, prevent the effect of free radicals, stimulate energy metabolism, optimize cellular respiration.
Our body contains some minerals but cannot produce them, so it is essential to use products rich in minerals to avoid esthetic disturbances.
In Remy Laure’s new 2019 mineral line, advanced techniques combine with ancestral virtues of minerals to optimize the results of beauty products. Remy Laure couples the most precious mineral assets (diamond, gold, jade, black pearl) with remarkable plant extracts (black orchid, tsubaki oil, black rose …) for exceptional beauty products.
Mud in cosmetic
Since Antiquity, mud is used in skincare treatments. The use of mud is called FANGOTHERAPY (derivated from the word FANGO, which means mud in Latin) or PELOTHERAPY (coming from the Greek word PELOS that means mud). Mud was used on the spot for a therapeutic purpose. Pline (23–79 after JC) in his book named “Natural History” reported the use of mud and thermal water since Greek/Roman Antiquity.
In this ancient time, when scientific measuring instruments did not exist, local customs and observations referred to the healing of hurt animals that had rolled themselves in mud. Prehistoric remains (paintings, sculptures, objects) venerating gods have been found close to thermal resorts, that proves the very ancient use of these places. This mud, very often warm, and these spurting waters used to have a supernatural power for these ancient people, which relieved their pains in these places. Temples deifying these sources had been built near these resorts.
In France, Gallic people used to have their protector god of sources, Borvo, who is the cause of thermal resorts’ names such as Bourbonne, Bourbon Lancy, Le Bourboule, Barbotan. Romans invading France and building thermal spas, associated Gallic and Latin divinities. The Gallo-Roman time was the first prosperity time of balneology and Mud Therapy.
General classification of muds
Every “thermal” mud differs in its composition, its use, or its therapeutic action. However, in 1949 in the city of Dax, France, the “International Medical Hydrology Society” gave a global definition of mud:
“A mud is a natural product, which is a mix of mineral water (including sea water and salty lake’s water) and organic or inorganic matters resulting of a geological and/or biological process. It is used for a therapeutic purpose as body wraps or baths ”.
There is a classification of the different types of mud according to their composition, usually into 2 categories:
– The peloid (or peat) is the result of the slow and progressive decomposition of plants, more or less mixed with mineral matters, often named MOOR, german name which means peat/mud. Hundreds of years are necessary to create moor. The chemical composition depends on the decomposition degree and the depth in the ground. It has a disinfecting power (used during the Napoleon’s wars as a bandage for wounds) and a preservative action (some trees, animals and objects have been found in good condition in moor).
The Moor Research Institute and the Moor Research International Organism have demonstrated, throughout numerous congresses, that the moor’s effects are based on 5 characteristics:
- Ion exchanger
- Cellular stimulant
– Alluvial deposits and sediments: are deposits left by subterranean rivers (or not) or mix of clay substratum and a biological phase, or volcanic residues.
Generally, sedimentary mud is poor in plants (contrary to peloid) but very rich in minerals and trace elements. That is why it is very interesting in cosmetic.
Ions in air
In the city, the air is heavy with big positive ions and poor in negative ions (Oxygen is a negative ion). The positive ions can be brought by some special winds, thundery clouds, smoking, synthetic materials, conditioned air system, pollution caused by vehicles and factories. TV Cathodic ray tubes and computers are the most dangerous because screens trap the negative ions.).
However, negative ions are formed under the influence of:
- The plant’s chlorophyll function (land or water plants)
- The UV rays above 1000 meters
- The ground’s radioactivity
- The friction of the air and certain plants: tribo-electricity or CORONA effect.
- The LENARD effect: shock of moving water against the rocs or shock of water drops with one another (that is why there are 50 000 negative ions at the bottom of a cascade in the mountain).
Earth is loaded with negative ions and is a reserve of negative ions. Rain and certain ground’s bacteria naturally supply this reserve with negative ions.
Negative ions are called “air vitamins”. Peloid, like Moor is loaded with negative ions.
Because ions go through the skin, the epidermis is not a barrier anymore but an exchange area.
