Moor Spa’s Signature Ingredient – Austrian Deep Moor
Created by nature over 10,000 years ago, this nutrient-rich complex is derived from a multitude of herbs, plants and flowers and is revered for its therapeutic properties by both medical clinics and spas around the world.
Every Moor Spa product contains the unique Moor essence. This consists of a wide array of organic substances and minerals such as humic acid, fulvic acid, antioxidants, proteins and mineral salts that enhance the skin’s overall health.
How Is Moor Formed?
Moor is a rare form of nutrient-rich peat created by the gradual transformation of herbs, plants & flowers that have been permanently submerged under water or underground.
Free from the decaying effects of oxygen and in the correct climatic and biological conditions, the plant matter undergoes a ˜ripening” process over many thousands of years into a rich, black substance.
During this process all of the organic and inorganic substances within the plants are assimilated into the Moor resulting in a herbal complex with wonderful therapeutic properties.
Moor has been a part of traditional medical folklore throughout many parts of Central Europe for centuries. During the past 60 years, a wealth of clinical studies conducted on Moor therapy has confirmed that Moor indeed does possess a wide range of beneficial properties. As a result, hundreds of European physicians now use and recommend Moor treatments.

Algamoor: A moor substance derived from 16 species of Algae from Northern Germany. Provides intensive hydrating and nourishing benefits.
Kelp Enzyme: 5 million year old fossilized Kelp mined from 100ft below ground in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Loaded with calcium and enzymes which exfoliate and brighten the skin.
