Mud is one of the beauty ingredients for skincare products.  The famous Boryeong Mud Festival is held annually in July and many went to the Daecheon Beach and Boryeong City just to enjoy the benefits of mud on their skin.

The five richest mud of the world : Canadian East coast, American East coast, the North Sea, Amazon river basin, Boryeong Mud from Seoul.


Mud has been made by soil, salts and degradation product of animals and plants that had been accumulated for a long time getting geological, chemical action and microorganism's disintegration.
For this reason, mud has lots of mineral and microelements like carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur, iron, silicate compound.
Also, not only it includes organic matter and hormone analog like prolan and estrogen but also it has abundance of pieces of vitamin like thiamine, ascorbic acid, folic acid and vitaminB12.

Because of this mud's ingredients, first of all mud has a lot of mineral matter, it can make a spa effect and can make a cure effect for the circulation or metabolism of body and nervous system.
Also mud has gluey component(colloid) and a crystalline component, these can be used broadly as a physical cure method, such as a sand bath, bathing in mineral water and sea bathing.
Besides it is known as outstanding effect for trauma therapy because of the antimicrobial and sterilization effect.

The Elasah cream is transparent and light gel .  You need to gently massage it until water drops form or feels like it has turn into water, and lightly pat skin to increase absorption. A thin film will be form to retain moisture all day long.  It is meant for dry skin type.

The Boryeong Mud Pack has a grey colour and smooth texture to it.  Application is really easy.  The mud dries down to light grey and easily wash of.  The skin does feel cleaner and less redness overall.

Boryeong Mud Beauty Soap smells very much like mud as it doesn't contain any other fragrance.  It foams up but not much but you don't need the foam to clean the skin.  The soap cleanses my skin well and it is not drying.

Boryeong Mud Cleansing Foam has a pearly light pink colour to it.  One only need about a pea size as it foam up really well and cleanses the skin well.  It sure smells floral which is nice too =O

As for the shampoo, conditioner, body cleanser and lotion(toner) since I can only use them once, I can only tell you that they smell nice and doesn't irritate my skin.

Among all the items I have tried, Boryeong Mud pack and the Boryeong Beauty soap are products to look at if you are interested in Boryeong magical power of mud.
