As the first and only spa on HHI offering the unique therapeutic properties of Deep Austrian Moor, we have long believed in the proven health and cosmetic benefits of Moor. When it comes to health, Moor has been shown to be both highly anti-inflammatory and detoxifying in the body, as well as help balance hormones and stimulate circulation. In addition, Moor’s many cosmetic benefits include helping skin’s natural pH balance and increasing blood flow to the skin, as well as helping to detoxify, purify tone and revitalize skin – with its ingredients found to be helpful in treating many skin problems, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, scars, stretch marks and cellulite.
There’s more to Moor Spa Hilton Head than just our Austrian Deep Moor, though … and there are a number of other pure therapeutic substances we use in our spa – as “masks” for a steamed mud treatment, in our facials, or in our hand and foot treatments. Here are some of the unique additional pure, therapeutic substances that we use at Moor Spa – and even more ways that we help you enhance your spa services, while enhancing your skin’s overall health and appearance.
Imagine a 10,000-year-old substance extracted from the depths of a pristine lake bed in northern Germany. That’s Algamoor, a remarkable substance composed entirely of algae. Discovered in 1920 and analyzed by German scientists in 1933, Algamoor has found its way into hospitals, clinics, and now, our spa.
Comprising over 10 different species of algae, Algamoor is a rich source of essential minerals, including magnesium, calcium, manganese, iron, silicon, and sulfur. Its therapeutic benefits are diverse, offering detoxification, remineralization, and anti-inflammatory properties. What truly sets Algamoor apart is its silky-smooth texture, deep hydration, and the fact that it’s almost scentless.
Hailing from a time over 35 million years ago, kelp enzyme is a fossilized, calcified kelp deposit found over a hundred feet below the ground in Nevada. This natural treasure trove consists of more than 70% bio-available calcium, over 70 trace minerals, and a wealth of life-enhancing enzymes.
Kelp enzyme works wonders for your skin. It opens pores, allowing your skin to breathe and enhances its tone. It helps in exfoliation, preventing wrinkles and signs of aging. Skin absorbs these essential minerals, restoring its vitality and promoting a fresh, healthy look.
Himalayan Crystal Salt
This exceptional Himalayan crystal salt comes from the Karakurm area of Kashmir, Pakistan. Formed over 250 million years ago from the Earth’s primal oceans, this salt is unique in its preparation. Mined exclusively in a protected mountain area, it’s collected by hand to maintain its energy vibration pattern. This is in stark contrast to many companies that use explosives and heavy equipment, diminishing the salt’s effectiveness.
Himalayan crystal salt is a source of over 80 trace minerals vital for the body, including lithium, magnesium, silicon, and gold. It’s a testament to the importance of preserving the Earth’s natural resources.
Our Green Clay is sourced from a remote mountainside on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It’s not just rich in minerals but also contains rare earths and healing gemstone materials. The minerals present, like barium and copper, have a multitude of benefits for the skin.
Moreover, this clay holds the energies of rare earths and healing gemstones, making it a truly unique and powerful ingredient in our skincare products.
Hailed as the most nutritionally dense food on the planet, marine phytoplankton is a marvel of nature. It contains a full complement of essential nutrients and over 60 individual wild species, making it a superfood for your skin. Our marine phytoplankton is naturally cultivated, without the use of artificial seawater or bio-reactors, ensuring its purity.
Our therapists — who have been trained to work with a variety of skin types — begin by assessing your skin’s specific therapeutic needs in order to determine which substance is best suited for your individualized skin treatment. Each of our therapists is trained to choose the best mud, clay, or enzyme for each client’s treatment – identifying the perfect substance for a spa service that will leave you more refreshed and revitalized than you thought possible
