Hi and a very warm welcome to the forum  Smiley

Good luck with this.  I absolutely love Moor mud.  Incredible properties and so many ways to use it  butterflies butterflies

Thank you! I realize that it is complicated. The moor is located in the wilderness of Latvia maybe I should certify the mud there and than the final products here because I want to have some U.K.stamp on it for marketing purposes. Anyway thanks for your support. I will just keep going with the idea and a great deal has been cleared already

Yes, Scott may be able to help. He is a member of this forum, but you can reach him on his website...

Something like a mud mask or suncream may not be feasible for small craft seller, but you can ask him. If the mud is collected wet, there is already an issue with potential contamination even before you've done any processing into the final product. Anything with water that is not sterile and kept sterile is a huge issue.

You will need to send him your recipe and your production method at the minimum. Then he should have confidence that you understand Good Manufacturing Process. The risks of contamination is really high on mud masks, so you'll need multiple preservative strategy. You almost certainly will be required to have the finished product tested by a lab in addition to a Safety Assesment.

Dried moor mud looses its abilities to absorb water and its destroys its molecular structure  and its not as effective although it does some healings and the dust kind of penetrate pores and is hard to wash off.

I am on my way to formulate the mask using salty mineral water and European cranberries

Hi Pauls,

I think you're going to need to consult a Cosmetic Chemist about this one. 

A solution re the finished product is to package it in 2 parts - one being the dry 'moor mud' and the other a bottle of something to mix into it immediately before use. 

Let us know how you get on with this - it sounds an interesting challenge

I think if you sterilize the moor mud you kill the bacteria which bring the healing effect, or I am wrong?  There must be a way around it.

It sounds like a really good idea. I hope you manage to find a cosmetic chemist and work out a way round the difficulties.

Hi. Yes it is long way with obstacles ahead of my Latvian moor mud mask, but it's worth it, because it really works. I tried to blend it with cranberry extract, after a month it became a bit acid by smell but skin seems to love it giving up with black heads.
