Discover the Healing Powers of Boryeong Mud with this K-beauty Brand

15 Apr 2024 - By Rachel Lee

Nestled in the heart of South Korea lies the quaint town of Boryeong, renowned for its annual Mud Festival and the mineral-rich mud that graces its shores. It is from this pristine landscape that BRMUD draws its inspiration and capturing its natural beauty in a unique skincare line.


Mud has long been revered for its therapeutic properties, prized by cultures around the world for its ability to detoxify, nourish and revitalise the skin. Rich in minerals such as magnesium, calcium and potassium, mud helps to draw out impurities, absorb excess oil, and promote cell turnover. Whether you're dealing with acne, ageing or dryness, incorporating mud-based skincare products into your routine can help you achieve your skincare goals naturally and effectively.


But one mud stands above all…

Boryeong Mud Flats

Boryeong Mud owes its potency to the unique geological composition of the region. Located in the coastal town of Boryeong in South Korea, the mud is formed from a combination of nutrient-rich sedimentary deposits - fed by rivers and streams flowing from the surrounding mountains - and organic matter that have accumulated over thousands of years.

These sediments not only contain a diverse array of minerals which are essential for maintaining healthy skin function, the unique environmental conditions of Boryeong, including its temperate climate and tidal patterns, play a role in the formation of the mud. 

The constant interaction between freshwater and seawater in the Boryeong mud flats creates an ideal habitat for the proliferation of nutrient-rich algae and plankton which further enrich the mud with vitamins, amino acids and other bioactive compounds beneficial for your skin health.

Furthermore, the mud undergoes a natural fermentation process over time - thousands of years, if you’ve been paying attention - during which organic matter decomposes and releases additional nutrients and beneficial microorganisms into the mud, imbuing it with antioxidant properties, making it highly effective in combating free radicals and environmental stressors that can damage your skin.

BRMUD: Harnessing the Power of Boryeong Mud

Proudly founded by a Boryeong native, BRMUD taps on the unparalleled purifying and rejuvenating properties of Boryeong Mud as the perfect hero ingredient for its skincare line. We take a look at 3 of their most popular products here.
