The Romans, Celts, and the Egyptians, have been a huge advocate of this organic ingredient. And apparently, while Queen Cleopatra wasn’t indulging in her luxurious milk bath, she also fed her famed beautiful skin with this ingredient!
Now forget the Medieval age and fast forward to modern times, some of our biggest A-list celebs such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker and even Madonna are all also swooning over the wondrous health and aesthetics benefits of this ingredient!
So what is it? What’s this huge beauty secret that everyone is keeping from us???
Well, ladies (and possibly many gentlemen), it’s none other than the legendary moor mud!
Moor mud is derived from more than 1,000 herbs, plants, grasses and flowers that have decomposed into the waters, turning them into a wholesome medley of vitamins, minerals, plant-based hormones and other phytonutrients. Research has shown that the mud has amazing healing properties and can be used to treat a host of skin-related problems, intestinal and arthritic illnesses. Pretty impressive eh?
Hmm.. I know moor mud might sound like it is as unreachable as the stars but it really is not!
Because today, you can easily get your daily dose of moor mud through Eumora’s Facial Bars! Whee!
Now click to unveil this ancient beauty secret! 😀

Directions for use: Simply wet your palm to create a thick lather, then apply gently onto your face or skin. Leave it on for 3 minutes and rinse off with water.
Ingredients: Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate & Sodium Coco-Sulfate & Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Starch & 1-Octadecanol & Paraffin & CI7789, Heilmoor Clay, Water, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil, Chamomilla Matricaria (Chamomile) Extract, Olive Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Aqua & Glycerin & Algae Extract & Polyglucoronic Acid.
As you can see, its key ingredient is Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate. I know it sounds like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) but the two are as different as chalk and cheese.
Disodium laureth sulfosuccinate is mostly found in hair and skin products.
Quite simply put, it’s a de-greasing, emulsifier, and foaming agent used in many shampoos and other cleaning products much like SLS and SLES.
But! Its molecules are larger and cannot penetrate the skin the way other surfactants do. It’s considered very gentle on the skin, and is even suitable for folks with more sensitive skin. It is deemed safe by researchers.
However, even though it is not regarded as a carcinogen by OSHA or IARC and has a gentler formula than SLS, you should still use it with caution as like most chemicals, it can still potentially irritate the skin in some people.
Hence, instead of the 3 minutes recommended, I only left the soap on my face for 1.5 minutes in case it dried my sensitive skin out.
I tried the soap on my hand first and it left my skin squeaky clean. This is why I decided to half the recommended leave-on time from 3 minutes to 1.5 minutes.
I had a huge pimple on my chin at the time and guess what happened the following day?
The angry looking zit dried up and my pores also appeared a wee bit smaller than the day before.
I thought it is pretty miraculous since my zits usually take a longer time to recover so I must say, I was rather impressed with its supersonic healing abilities.
Its texture is very hard actually so it was quite a challenge to get a good lather. But I love its odourless formulation that is great for my sensitive skin.
My skincare products also glided on better afterwards.
I’ve read online that many experienced breakouts in the first few days but it didn’t happen to me. I guess it may be due to the shorter application time. If you’re afraid of a pimple attack, you could probably do the same too.
The price is pretty steep, selling at SGD189 for four bars but I guess for its multiple benefits, it’s well worth it.
I’ll continue to use this and wait for its other long term beauty rewards to show up. Meanwhile, 3.5 Honeyz crowns for these Eumora Facial Soaps!
