Good Mud

I have always been a mud skipper. It is as specialized as its regional geography; yet as universal as mother. Mud is Earth. Somehow, I knew that I would love Source Vitál’s Silt Scrub before I ever even felt it’s silky mud, or smelled it’s aromatic deliciousness. I just knew. Ya know?

Source Vital’s Silt Scrub is a gentle yet effective scrub is made with natural Colloidal Freshwater Silt, Pumice from volcanic ash, Bentonite Clay and Cherry Seed Powder to give skin a renewed appearance. 100% pure essential oils such as Geranium and Ho Wood, and botanical ingredients, such as Aloe Vera and Elder Flower” all working together to scrub away rough skin, while also adding soothing and moisturizing botanicals.

This mask is safe for all skin types, and a few benefits of regular use include: purification and protection from environmental grime that can lead to breakouts. .

The humic acids in the purified silt is a gentler alternative to hears Alypha Hydroxy acids; and it works as both a chemical and a manual exfoliator (sugar is another- in a pinch!) to smooth the skin and help to clear out pores. This is further enhanced with Lemon oil, pumice, bentonite, and cherry seed powder, which all contribute to the purifying and active nature of the scrub

 Further ingredients work to sooth, moisturize and calm the post scrub leaving skin hydrated and nourished.  These include: aloe vera gel which soothes and hydrates. Geranium, Ho Wood, and Ylang Ylang essential oils all work to help sooth and bring balance to the skin and to help fight signs of aging. Finally, elderflower extract, a powerful antioxidant ‘purifies to prevent the appearance of acne, soothes the look and feel of inflammation, and is a powerful antioxidant, that prevents the signs of aging.


The aroma is heavy with geranium and lemon (two of my favorites- and two of the most effective essential oils for skin), and the mud itself manages to be both gritty, and silky.  Once smoothed on, it’s important to allow it to sit on the skin for a few minutes. During this there is a slight, not unpleasant, tingle; this is humic acid helping to “un-glue” skin that is ready to be scrubbed off. After a gentle scrubbing, the mask washes away effortlessly, leaving toned, smoother, plump skin.  I have been using it myself for about two months, and between the fragrance, the silky mud, and the cool smooth after, the Source Vitál’s Silt Scrub has replaced sugar as my favorite exfoliator.  I’m having a hard time not becoming a fanatic about it. Stop on by and have a facial and you too will become super mad for good mud!
