Beautiful, Natural, Mud

Posted on March 17, 2014

Alaska Glacial Mud Co. is a beauty company from Cordova Alaska. The city of Cordova is on an island and can only be reached by boat or plane and is "surrounded by mountains, glaciers, wetlands, ocean and wilderness". 

Company founder Lauren found her way to Cordova through post graduate studies and quickly saw the beauty potential in the environment. The water was especially untouched by pollutants so the mud left on the banks is full of botanicals to soften and nourish the skin. 

Cordova, also known as "Alaska's Hidden Treasure"

 

The mineral rich mud is deposited at a rate of 60-100 million tons annually in the Copper River Delta  by slow moving glaciers that have ground entire mountains into a pure mineral powder. 

The simplicity in the recipe matches the simplicity in the process of using Alaska Glacial Mud. So this blogger took it upon herself to do something good for her skin after a weekend of being out in the sun celebrating Saint Patrick's Day....

 I tried Lavender-Peppermint (which we offer on our site)

 

Step 1. Apply mud in a thin layer and let dry

Step 2. Rinse it off

It's that easy!

 

                  make-up free (before)                  and the surprisingly fun to feel mud

 

       In the process of it drying                                   And my post mud glow

 

the mud was surprisingly light, as soon as I applied it I felt a cool tingling throughout my face (the good kind of tingling that is). It only took ten minutes to dry and didn't leave anything behind in my sink after I rinsed. I have to say it felt good cleansing my pores after all the green beer I had consumed.

What Everyone is Buzzing About...

Posted on January 06, 2014

   With health and beauty there's always a lot of buzz, and new products promising to do a lot for you...but maybe what really works isn't new but a new spin on the tried and true. 

   For example: beeswax and royal jelly beauty products made all naturally by the Savannah Bee Company in Savannah Georgia (click the link to learn more about their company). Stylish new beauty products that simply expanded on the healthy nature of the beehive.

   The beauty benefits of the hive mainly come from two ingredients: beeswax, and royal jelly (the stuff the queen bee herself feeds off of to stay strong).

   Ever wonder where the phrase "mind your own beeswax" came from? Some say it came from the colonial period when women would use it to cover up pock marks from younger years. Sit too close to the fire though and it would drip and look unseemly, so to get rid of the gawkers, the phrase was born!

   Today there are more subtle ways to use beeswax to improve complexion, like Royal Jelly Body Butter (pictured below), but it's been used for hundreds of years in some form or another. 

   Our products from Savannah Bee Co. are meant to keep your skin supple by smoothing the texture of it and strong by improving its elasticity, since it is your body's first line of defense. They're also meant to make you glow, like with their  lip gloss and tinted lip balm in flavors like tupelo honey, and mint blossom.

 

  If beauty really is skin deep, then why not make your skin beautiful without all the hype of new beauty products full of things you can't pronounce?

This Ones for the Guys...

Posted on December 05, 2013

Gift giving seems so easy sometimes....until you have to shop for him. The man in your life who has everything he needs. He doesn’t pine after clothes in a store window, and usually just buys what he needs as it arises, so you’re left wondering what you can get him to unwrap on Christmas morning. But, the age old problem of getting something for the man who wants for nothing is alleviated a bit with this list. Our creative products aren’t just another patterned tie or tool kit, they’re things he’ll use and enjoy that he may not even know he wanted.

 

1. The Man Can

An appropriate product to top our manly gift list is "The Man Can" from Plum Island Soap Company. This converted paint pail comes fully stocked with: a bar of licorice soap, shave gel, bay rum oil, Fisherman’s hand butter, a loofah mitt, and a can/bottle opener for the can or a beer alternatively. All of these products were handpicked to leave a fresh and masculine smell, and come in a super portable carrying can that can be used for garage organization or other storage after it’s unpacked. Perfect for a husband, a boyfriend, a son just off to school or living on his own, or whomever is in need of a little freshness. 

 

2. Brackish Bow-Tie

We’re willing to put some money on the man who has everything definitely not having one of these Brackish bow-ties. Each bow-tie is extremely unique and has been handmade from various species of feathers to create a statement outfit in the time it takes to hook it on. This look puts a twist on timeless, easily draws attention, and sparks conversation, which will inevitably lead to the praise of the awesome person who bought it for them. *Wink*
3. Arcanum Jeans

Now if there's a man in your life who’s more about utility than making a statement, you can’t go wrong with a classic pair of blue jeans. These jeans from Arcanum are the first ever to come with a tracking number to let you see where the cotton in the jeans was grown. But most importantly, they’re comfortable and durable, to keep him looking as good as he is working hard.

 
4. Lap Log

This cool invention from Bamboosa is a great gift for the electronics lover. If he has a tablet that he loves to surf the web on, no doubt he has it resting on his lap where he has to crane his neck and strain his eyes. This log hold the ipad steady and can be placed on the lap for a higher platform, or anywhere else to be propped up at eye level. This makes tapping away on the couch or in bed much more comfortable and easier on his neck and back. 

 

5. Go Plates

For that guy who loves tailgating, or having people over for food and drink, the Go Plate is the go to gift. While you may have never gifted disposable plates before, we promise that these aren’t your mother’s plastic plates. Men typically admire utility over style, but The Go Plate is ingeniously designed to fit over any cup, glass or longneck bottle, and has deep compartments to store food without it spilling; so it easily has both! If it is for football or game night, there’s a place to put his food and eat and drink and be merry!
