Clay Data

We use BC Glacial Marine clay in many of our products.
Pure with a negative ion charge, this clay is rich in anti aging minerals.
It draws in positively charged bacteria and toxins leaving the skin revitalized and rejuvenated.
It also has the ability to reduce pores, smooth lines and wrinkes as well as firm and tone the skin.

We source our clay from an unpolluted, pristine and virtually untouched tidal estuary in the remote mountains of British Columbia.

Our clay contains over 50 different minerals and 15 rare earth elements that are extremely sought after.

Formed over 2.6 million years ago during the Pleistocene period, the constant shifting and moving of the glaciers caused mass rock erosion and crushed the rock into small coarse particles. As this ground up rock comes in contact with seawater in the estuary, it is suspended by the salt and further broken down into infinitely smaller particles.
This seawater is what differentiates Glacial Marine Clay to Glacial Clay . The elements found in this salt water are found in human blood. This allows for deeper skin absorption. It also contains phytoplankton, a free floating microscopic plant material which enriches the clay with further minerals.

There are 5 elements classified as heavy metals: Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead, Mercury and Antimony.  Government regulations require that all skin care products and cosmetics meet or are below levels set internationally for these heavy metals.

The clay found in Man Mud is well below the limits set by Worldwide standards for heavy metals, particularly arsenic, a known cancer causing heavy metal.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to find glacial clays with arsenic content less than 3 ppm. Clays containing in excess of 3 ppm arsenic have to be heavily processed to achieve this.
Our clay is 2.07 ppm thus requiring no added processing and maintining it’s natural form/

Heavy Metal Limits Table

Elements Max Threshold ppm* Man Mud PPM
Lead (Pb) 10 1.39
Cadmium (Cd) 3 0.041
Mercury (Hg) 1 0.017
Arsenic 3 2.07
Antimony (Sb) 5 0.51


Our clay contains 15 of the 17 known rare earth elements. These are highly sought after and found only in a few places on our planet

Yttrium (Y) Lanthanum (La) Cerium (Ce) Praseodymium (Pr) Neodymium (Nd) Samarium (Sm) Europium (Eu) Gadolinium (Gd) Terbium (Tb) Dysprosium (Dy) Holmium (Ho) Erbium (Er) Thulium (Tm) Ytterbium (Yb) Lutetium (Lu)

Yttrium (y) used in cancer drugs
Samarium (Sm) – used to kill lung, prostrate, breast and bone cancer cells
Neodymium (Nd) used to make some of the strongest magnets in the world

Gadolinium (Gd) used to treat tumours
Ytterbium (Yb) used in certain cancer treatments
Lutetium (Lu) – used to treat certain types of tumours

Finest Clay Around!

Our clay has been analysed and found to be the most mineral rich clay in the world. According to research on BC clays performed by Dr. E Hauser, professor of colloid chemistry at MIT, our clay has a high absorption rate making it ideal for drawing our impurities and toxins from the skin and he quotes – “There is nothing, absolutely nothing compared to what you have here in British Columbia.”
