Alpin Heilmoor Extract

Alpin Heilmoor Extract, AHE, Peat Extract

The beneficial and healing effect of mud baths has been known to people for a very long time. Even Paracelsus recommended them for the alleviation and healing of a wide variety of complaints. Today they are mainly used for arthritis, rheumatism, menopausal complaints and osteoporosis. The humic acid contained in the powder is primarily responsible for the effect. This in turn, with its many positive properties, ensures that Alpin Heilmoor Extract is also increasingly found in cosmetic products.


What is Alpin Heilmoor Extract anyway?

Medicinal moor powder is obtained from designated therapeutic moors. It is rich in humic acid, an organic substance that is produced by the so-called humification during the decomposition process of biological material. Humic acid is found primarily in peat, lignite and humus soils. It has a high molecular weight, binds heavy metals and is even said to be able to support intestinal health.


Alpin Heilmoor Extract in cosmetics

Thanks to the humic acid it contains, the powder from the bog has a buffering, antimicrobial and absorbing effect. Due to its detox effect, the acid is able to render harmless the dreaded free radicals that are produced, for example, by UV radiation and other external influences. Since medicinal moor powder has an antibacterial effect, it is also an excellent treatment for acne and blemished skin. In test persons who applied a cream with Alpin Heilmoor Extract (concentration: 1.5 percent) twice a day for a period of 28 days, the skin impurities visibly decreased.













Another study with several test subjects (average age 56 years) showed that the active ingredient contributes to a significant improvement in skin elasticity. The effect is particularly impressive in the sensitive eye area. Here, the application of a preparation with mud powder ensures that the contours become firmer and tighter again and the face gains radiance. This makes the active ingredient very suitable for anti-aging products.













Another area of application is skin cleansing.

In addition, medicinal moor powder can be used in hair care because it improves the elasticity and flexibility of the hair fibres.

Even in dental care, the powder extracted from the bog is an effective solution. Here, too, studies show that it not only helps to reduce plaque, but can also fight the dangerous germ Porphyromonas gingivalis. This is known to be one of the main causes of periodontal disease. In addition, Alpin Heilmoor Extract – although naturally brown to black in colour – has the ability to whiten teeth.
