Millennium remedy

The use of clay against inflammation, wounds and skin problems is so ancient that it is inseparable from human history. Prehistoric people not only used clay to make pottery, but also for medicine. The indigenous peoples of America and the ancient civilizations of the old continent also knew the antiseptic powers of clay on the skin. We can also observe animals like horses instinctively covering themselves with clay in order to heal insect bites and other wounds.

Manicouagan clay
Today, in the Manicouagan peninsula on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, a precious mineral marine mud is extracted which, unlike other deposits, is free of any environmental pollutants. This exceptional mud, rich in minerals, trace elements and organic matter, stands out from other clays on the planet by its effectiveness. By comparing it to other known sources of clay, such as those from the Dead Sea or Périgord, we quickly see that it ticks all the boxes: controls sebum levels, soothes, exfoliates, effective in the treatment of psoriasis and eczema, cleanses, absorbs bad odors, reduces inflammation, detoxifies, regenerates, hydrates, revitalizes, phew… It is truly an unsuspected treasure of our territory.

Extracted in an eco-responsible way
The clay that the Manicouagan deposit contains in phenomenal quantities is extracted using a so-called “traceless” method which consists of replacing the thick layer of peat bog which protects it after harvest. The company that operates the site, AEM Lab, is a model of eco-responsibility. The company notably bears the seal of the Manicouagan-Uapishka world biosphere reserve granted by UNESCO. Another compelling demonstration of environmental friendliness is the fact that the machinery used in sludge extraction is lubricated with vegetable grease instead of synthetic hydraulic oil.
