About TORF

Moor mud is a therapy quality peat ** – an organic substance, product of natural decomposition of multitudes of plants under special conditions. Unlike other mud used in the spa industry, Torf Moor Mud contains virtually no clay (less then 3%) and consists of organic residue of herbs, flowers and grasses. Over period of thousands of years this residue was transformed into a fine paste that easily dissolves in the water, has unusual concentration of bio-minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, plant hormones and fatty acids in a molecular form that is easy for the human skin to absorb. Think of it as a plant extract not from just one plant, but hundreds that reflects environment of Earth 10.000 years ago, without present day pollution. Its uncanny ability to heal, nourish and detoxify has been observed by people for millennia and used scientifically in European Spas for well over a century. It is used not only to beautify, but also to cure multitude of ailments from mobility problems, arthritis, and hormonal imbalance to post surgery recovery and muscle recovery in sport medicine. Its actions are thermo-physical, biochemical, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and natural antibiotics*. Because peat has chelatic properties (it binds heavy metal isotopes) it is a very strong natural detoxifier*.
Term BALNEO-Peat refers to therapy grade of our Moor Mud which was tested to exacting standards by the Czech Ministry of Health and was certified for the use for treatment in the spa therapy (balneo-therapy). Thanks to its unique packaging, Torf Moor Mud is supplied in an non-altered natural state, enriched with highly beneficial mineral spring waters and salts of the Karlovy Vary Spa region. Torf Moor Mud has never been processed chemically or thermally to preserve all of it’s benefits as recommended by European therapy practice.

** Moor mud, moor peat, therapy peat, BALNEO-peat are different names for high quality, matured peat that is suitable for balneotherapy.
