Blue Lagoon Iceland Launches Two New Skin Care Products: Silica Mud Exfoliator and Silica Foot and Leg Lotion

GRINDAVIK, ICELAND--(Marketwire - Aug 3, 2011) - Scientists from the Blue Lagoon, Iceland's world-famous geothermal spa and premium skin care brand, have developed two new skin care products based on Blue Lagoon's unique white Silica mud: Silica Mud Exfoliator and Silica Foot and Leg Lotion.

Silica Mud Exfoliator is a light exfoliator for face and body. It is based on Blue Lagoon Silica and is enriched with Silica granules. It gently exfoliates and polishes away flaky and dull skin, and leaves the skin energized and ready for the application of moisture and nourishment.

Silica Foot and Leg Lotion contains Silica that strengthens and nourishes, and menthol that cools and rejuvenates legs. It is the first Blue Lagoon product especially developed for feet. The white Silica Mud is the Blue Lagoon's signature element.

The Silica has an important role in treating skin conditions with its exfoliating and deep-cleansing effects. Recent research shows that Blue Lagoon Silica strengthens the skin barrier function. Healthy functioning of the skin barrier is one of the key elements in maintaining healthy and radiant skin.

Ása Brynjólfsdóttir, Blue Lagoon's director of Research and Development, says that the new products are the result of years of research and development. The objective is to develop new ways to utilize the Silica which is a unique natural ingredient.

"Blue Lagoon is a part of an ecocycle. The Blue Lagoon natural ingredients are harvested from the natural source using environmentally friendly green methods and renewable geothermal energy," Brynjólfsdóttir says.
