Aman Skincare announces the launch of a new product, the Miracle Mud Mask (£62.50 / 50ml), available from September this year. Developed to nourish and restore radiance, the mask is the perfect remedy for skin that’s seen too much sun over the summer months. Providing a peaceful ritual for reconnection, the earthy aroma of the mask calms and centres. With key ingredients including black Peruvian mud and cactus oil, the Miracle Mud Mask is part of Aman Skincare’s Grounding pathway and is designed for dry to normal skin.
Applying to a cleansed face and neck, the botanical mud mask breathes new life into dry, listless skin with a blend of indigenous ingredients. Rare black Peruvian mud, sourced from the Andes, helps to boost the immune system and rejuvenate skin, thanks to its high levels of titanium. This, as well as a rich combination of mineral salts and health-essential elements including zinc, magnesium, manganese and copper, make it effective in maintaining healthy vibrant skin. The cactus oil in the formula penetrates to the skin’s deepest level, dramatically improving hydration, and provides protective vitamin E, regenerative fatty acids and anti-inflammatory flavonoids. These highly effective ingredients are blended with aloe vera, shea and cocoa butters, which seal in moisture to reveal softer, smoother skin.
Aman Skincare follows three distinct pathways that harness the natural settings of Aman’s locations: mountains and deserts, Grounding and earthy in their essence; oceans and seas – fresh, Purifying and fluid; nature, forests and lush greenery – Nourishing and renewing in the energy they offer. As part of the Grounding pathway, the Miracle Mud Mask’s aroma has been created to mitigate the effects of stress and anxiety and to reconnect to the stillness and solidity of the earth. For best results apply a teaspoonful onto skin two or three times per week, allow to dry for 15 minutes, before rinsing with warm water. The mask can be used in combination with other Aman Skincare products such as the Stem Cell Face & Eye Serum and Nurture Intense Face Oil, which should be applied after.
The sense of peace, the intrinsic connection with its beguiling locations, and the becalming architecture for which Aman is so renowned, define the design aesthetic for The Miracle Mud Mask’s jar and the rest of the collection. Acclaimed architect Kengo Kuma has masterfully blended these attributes with Aman’s Eastern roots and channelled them into a striking vessel, beautifully crafted reimagining of Japanese porcelain.
All of Aman Skincare’s formulations have been consciously conceived in alignment with nature, to ground, purify and nourish. The collection was formulated to address specific physical and emotional needs, whilst reflecting the unique and varied landscapes found in Aman’s locations: deserts; rainforests; lagoons and oceans. Many of the ingredients are sourced from and inspired by Aman destinations, from Bhutan to Morocco and from Venice to India.
