Manicouagan Marine Clay contains sodium, calcium, iron, potassium and zinc. It acts as an exfoliant, an astringent, a moisturizer, a revitalizing agent and a cleansing agent. Manicouagan Marine Clay has a particularly high content in silicates, iron oxide and alumina which act together to help heal wounds, burns, cuts and to reduce swelling. These compounds also help relieve muscle pain and problems associated with skin diseases.
Manicouagan clay is extracted under the peat bog at Manicouagan Peninsula, near the St-Lawrence River, in the Manicouagan-Uapishka biosphere reserve. The marine mud is always mined during the winter, in order to conserve and protect the external environment as well as possible. The thick layer of peat is placed aside to enable cleaner extraction of the clay mud. Once extraction is complete, the layer of peat is put back in place, such that the mining process leaves “zero footprint”. This factory has various processing stations separated by positive air pressure systems in order to prevent product contamination. It should be specified that the products are not processed, but rather refined in accordance with various regulations and with the specific requirements of the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors.
