Rotorua Mud

The thermal mud used in all our Wild Ferns® Rotorua Mud skincare products is firstly obtained from the hot mud pools in Rotorua. The mud is sterilised, then refined to remove any foreign matter such as volcanic ash residue, while ensuring all the mineral and trace elements are left to benefit this highly therapeutic mud. After this it is then ready for inclusion in our range of quality products.

Rich in Minerals

In Rotorua, the inner heat of the earth has found its way to the surface bringing with it Rotorua’s earth magic – geothermal mud. Rich in rejuvenating minerals this mud has natural cleansing, antiseptic and rebalancing properties.

The contact that this mud has with volcanic gases and minerals from the centre of the earth is the reason that it is particularly rich in minerals. Ordinary clay and mud contain some minerals but because of its’ volcanic origin, Rotorua Mud is far richer in these properties. Major minerals present in Rotorua Mud include silica, magnesium, calcium, titanium, iron, sulphur, phosphorus, sodium and potassium. In addition, there are also trace elements such as copper, zinc, selenium, cobalt and manganese.

Rotorua Mud is excellent for use in regenerative skincare as it has a very strong affinity for moisture. This mud on drying will generate heat, increasing 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. Sulphur, while a very odorous mineral, is very beneficial and naturally occurring in Rotorua Mud as it acts as an antibacterial agent assisting in the prevention and elimination of acne.

Everyday living conditions are harsh on your skin. Pollution, extremes of temperature, stress and ageing all contribute to dryness, facial lines and a generally unhealthy appearance. At times like this, our skin needs special care and attention. Wild Ferns® Rotorua Mud works with a unique double action to provide what is required. Having a remarkably high absorbency capacity, our Rotorua Mud penetrates the skin’s pores to absorb excess fatty secretions and remove impurities, detoxify and purify while simultaneously nourishing the skin with natural minerals. From the first treatment, Wild Ferns® Rotorua Mud will help create a smoother, softer and more radiant appearance. 

Wild Ferns® Rotorua Mud has captured the special benefits of the geothermal mud in an extensive range of products to assist in the health and wellbeing of your skin. These special benefits are further enhanced by the addition of other exceptional ingredients such as premium certified Manuka Honey 80+, Lemongrass, Royal Jelly and Bergamot to name a few.

Wild Ferns® Rotorua Mud contains an allergen-free perfume.
