The healing power of the ancient forest is not just a myth. New research into the human microbiome has shown that for us to stay healthy, we need to have sufficient contact with the diverse microbes present in nature. Forest soil mulch, which is rich in humic acid, has been shown to contain microbial strains that promote health and support life. These microbes protect from allergies and auto-immune diseases by triggering a signaling process on the surface of the skin, which leads to the immune system reducing inflammation in the body. Especially in urban environments, daily contact with forest soil can be challenging, but the new products from Moi Forest offer a solution to this problem!
Moi Forest brings the beneficial microbes of the forest to your bathroom with the help of forest dust
Reconnecting Nature™ microbial extract, a new innovation developed by Finnish universities, is scientifically proven to support the immune system and the microbiome of the body when applied to skin. The extract contains the same microbes as the Finnish forest soil. To offer the best possible skin care result, Moi Forest products also contain high quality vegetable oils with omega fatty acids (3, 6 and 9) and vitamin E in addition to the forest microbial extract, i.e. forest dust. These active ingredients take care of your skin effectively and support the microbes that maintain the balance of the skin. The effects of all the ingredients on the microbiome have also been taken into account, and for example the preservatives used are very mild and food grade quality.
Moi Forest products are:
- Certified organic (Cosmos Organic)
- Carbon neutral
- Manufactured in Finland
- Packed in a cardboard tube (with a recyclable plastic cap)
In addition, our products have a high forest dust content, which can be seen in our creams as a grayish colour. The colour however blends into the skin when the product is rubbed in.
