More Life; Moor Spa!

"The best way to detoxify is to stop putting toxic things into the body and to begin to believe in it's own mechanisms." - Andrew Weil

Upon discovery at it's lab in Vancouver, our esthetician Rachel has newly introduced Moor Spa skin care here at Blossom. You’ll catch new soaps, lotions and potions around the salon, and a whole new line of skin care for your next facial!

Why is Moor Spa different?
Moor Spa is based on the use of Austrian Deep Moor. This moor has been used to heal for centuries.
Moor Spa products are 100% natural source. This means every ingredient comes from the earth. Ingredients are organic, never containing toxic chemicals or artificial substances. Moor Spa is registered with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and the Skin Deep product safety website. www.ewg.org/skindeep Moor Spa products range from a top rating of 1 to 3. This is notably higher than many ‘natural’ product lines.

What is Moor?
Moor is formed by gradual decomposition of plant matter in a waterlogged environment. This environment is free of oxygen and therefore free of decay. The matter transforms over thousands of years into a homogeneous magma. This ripens the organic and inorganic components of the substance and encourage potency of active ingredients.

Where does Moor come from?
The most pure and potent source of Moor is Tiefenmoor from Vorarlberg in Austria. The moor is excavated from 60 feet below the surface. Kelzyme is extracted from a 35 million year old deposit in Nevada. Himalayan Salts are manually (never using explosives to maintain energy vibration) from Pakistan. All products are manufactured using moor water as a base, then are blended in Vancouver. Moor Spa is a cruelty free, toxin free, Canadian brand! 

How does Moor work?
Moor is detoxifying from bodily wastes and toxins. The moor acts as a magnet and draws out all toxins from the body. It has been used medically to treat arthritis, hormone imbalances, and injury.
Moor is highly bio available, which means it is easily absorbed into the body internally and through the skin.
Moor is anti-inflammatory, providing relief from pain or inflamed acne.
Moor stimulates circulation to promote healing and warmth in the body.
Moor has a subtle life energy, which helps rebalance the system for healing by a transfer of negative ions.

What are the cosmetic benefits?
The moor contains active ingredients that detoxify, purify, tone and revitalize the skin! Moor holistically balances the system.
Naturally occurring essential oils, fatty acids, and lipoids penetrate more easily and without side effects as opposed to artificial substances. This establishes a healthy skin pH and increases blood flow.
Moor is naturally hypoallergenic and harmonizes all skin types.
While most external products cannot fight hormonal and toxin imbalances, Moor detoxifies the whole system and has been used to treat cellulite, stretch marks, scars, psoriasis, eczema and acne. 
All these benefits are just one of the great ingredients in Moor Spa products. 

How are the products preserved?
Grapefruit Seed Extract; potent with anti-oxidant activity.
Perilla Ocymoides Leaf Extract removes active oxygen.
Acorus Gramineus Root/Stem Extract is anti-microbial.
Natamycin is a natural fungicide.

What are some other key ingredients?
Algamoor is composed entirely of algae. It contains rich minerals such as magnesium, calcium, manganese, iron, silicon and sulphur. It detoxifies, re-mineralizes, works against inflammation, and deeply hydrates.
Kelzyme is a fossilized, calcified kelp deposit. It opens pores, lightens the skin, exfoliates, tightens, prevents wrinkles, restores tone and vitality.
