  • INTERNATIONAL MUD DAY: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

    June 28th, 2016

    Every year on June 29th people from around the world come together to celebrate International Mud day. The creators of this unique event are out to prove that mud is more than just what most people see it as, dirt. And this is something we can definitely get on-board with, especially when it comes to beauty.

    Hungrian Moor Mud

    International Mud Day was first established in 2009 as a way to encourage community spirit and to teach people to appreciate the natural world around them. You might have already guessed that this day is actually celebrated by rolling around in mud.
    A whole host of activities are set up for the day (mud cake is even on the menu) and when it comes to getting involved, the dirtier you get, the better.

    Though we can’t condone rolling in mud as a way to achieve a beautiful complexion, our unique Moor Mud skincare collection was created using mineral rich Hungarian Moor Mud, extracted from the largest thermal in Europe, and is testament to the fact that mud should be celebrated and is a beautiful ingredient when it comes to your skincare routine.
    Though we’re only really referring to the Hungarian kind and not the mud from your garden...

    Our premium Moor Mud Collection comprises four products all designed to harness the unique skincare benefits of Moor Mud to continually transform your skin with every use. 

    Using Moor Mud regularly will purify your complexion; leave your pores impurity free and combat signs of ageing for luminous skin that’s clear, hydrated and youthful. This is because Moor Mud has a rich mineral content of calcium and magnesium, minerals widely known for their ability to nourish and regenerate skin.

    For those of you who may be a little mud shy, our best-selling and award-winning Cleansing Thermal Balm is an easy and luxurious way to include mud in your skincare routine. If you’re feeling brave and want to get stuck straight in our Thermal Cleansing balm also comes in a super-size version.

    If that’s not enough mud for you, our premium skincare range also includes the Ultramoor Mud Mask, the Deep Cleansing Mask and a Refining Facial Polisher.

    Happy International Mud Day!

  • Muds from around the world

    June 27th, 2016

    In the next two weeks we will be highlighting the benefits of a number of muds from around the world and the effects they have on your wellbeing and skin. In the first part of our ‘Muds of the world’ series we reveal more about the volcanic muds of France, US and of course Lake Heviz in Hungary..

    Lake Heviz:

    Hungarian Moor mud is one of Omorovicza’s signature ingredients. It is extracted from Lake Heviz near Budapest, the largest thermal lake in Europe. The mud has been used in Heviz Spas for centuries. Hungarian Moor mud is a ‘soup’ of nutrients and organic matter. Lake Heviz is a thermal lake, which means it replenishes daily. Over centuries, the Moor mud filters through the thermal water and gathers an unusually high content in calcium and magnesium carbonates, humic and fulvic acids. Calcium and magnesium carbonates heal and nourish the skin, humic and fluvic acids detoxify and clean the complexion and have an antioxidant effect.

    Volcanic Mud

    Volcanic Mineral Mud has been a natural and organic regional beauty secret for centuries in France and in the US. This Volcanic Mud is world known for beauty and therapeutic properties because of its unique mineral content.  This also goes for any skin ailments involving bacteria and fungus (also impurities) like psoriasis and eczema as well as detoxifies the skin deeply.
    Using this type of mud will help you to fight wrinkles, excess oil, acne, fine lines, fatigued skin, dullness and uneven tone. Your skin is left smoother, healthier, firmer, hydrated and detoxified.


  • Grow London & The Madoo pop up spas in pictures

    The pop up world tour is in full swing with events happening almost concurrently in London, The Hamptons and Budapest.

    As the pictures are excitedly sent around the Omorovicza HQ by our teams across the world, we can't help but share them with you right away!

    First up is Grow London. As you may know, we've teamed up with Clifton Nurseries to create a uniquely scented sanctuary and spa garden at this year's Grow London.

    Designed by Matthew Wilson, the relaxing garden reflects the fragrances and ingredients found in our products which include jasmine, pomegranate and olive trees.

    Visitors to the garden can also take a break from the buzz and bustle of the Grow London show to enjoy a Jasmine Hydrating Facial which has been created exclusively for the event.

    Then just across the pond, we hosted a pop up spa in the beautiful surroundings of The Madoo Conservancy at the 6th annual Much Ado about Madoo Garden Market and Cocktail Party.

    Here attendees could enjoy a complimentary Rose Hydralifting Facial for a relaxing and uplifting summer treat.

     


  • Botanicals Series - Part II

    June 23rd, 2016

    Omorovicza Floral Ingredients

    Today we are highlighting the benefits of Rosemary, Manuka Oil, Chamomile, Aloe Vera and Basil in our last post of the 'Botanicals' series

    Rosemary
    Rosemary has a number of benefits for the skin, ranging from providing long-lasting hydration, supporting collagen development, to fighting off skin-damaging free radicals and acne. Rosemary’s primary reputation in skincare is its ability to remove excess oil. It has astringent properties, which can help refresh oily skin and hair without creating excess dryness. In the case of acne prone skin or eczema, this is also the herb to use as it has natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that removes dirt and bacteria that can cause breakouts and flare-ups.

    Manuka Oil
    Manuka oil is beneficial for a number of skin conditions including acne, blemishes, skin rashes, eczema, psoriasis, sunburn, and insect bites. Manuka Oil also possesses insecticidal properties which inhibits the diffusion of toxins and soothes the irritation and inflammation caused by insect bites and other infections.

    Chamomile
    Chamomile has clinically proven anti-inflammatory and repairing properties. It has a range of different properties including: antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. It is also considered to be hypoallergenic with an ability to neutralise skin irritants. Chamomile is good for dry, red, hot and sensitive skin. In skincare preparations, chamomile is used for teething babies, toothache, acne and boils, allergies and rashes, earache, inflammations, dermatitis, eczema etc.

    Aloe Vera
    Aloe Vera when applied to skin has the ability to penetrate the skin’s layers and reach deep into the epidermis. You can apply the gel straight from the leaf to burns and scalds, insect bites and stings and it is especially soothing for sunburn. Burn clinics have found that aloe vera is much more effective other remedies. When applied to wounds, aloe can quickly stop bleeding and the antibacterial action of aloe stops inflammation. Men can use the gel from an aloe leaf as an after-shave lotion and for a quick and soothing treatment for razor cuts.

    Basil
    Basil is used in skincare to fight acne, eczema, psoriasis, and other skin conditions. It’s a powerful antioxidant which it helps in preventing early signs of ageing. Basil is also helpful in conditioning the skin by improving blood circulation.

    Thyme
    Thyme has antiseptic and antifungal properties that cleanse, heal and soothe inflamed skin. Studies have shown that thyme has antibacterial properties greater than benzoyl peroxide, which is the active ingredient in anti-acne preparations.


  • Queen of Hungary Mist Limited Edition Launch

    June 21st, 2016

  • Midsummer day

    June 20th, 2016

    Today we’re celebrating Midsummer’s Day, the longest day of the year. Now that summer has officially started, SPF protection is a must to ensure your skin is protected from the harmful effects of the sun. Even when the skies are grey, it’s essential to wear a sunscreen as your skin will still be exposed to UVA/UVB rays.

    This is where our Mineral UV Shield SPF30 comes in handy…
    This physical sunscreen uses a highly effective combination of zinc and titanium dioxide to provide SPF30 UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection. Vitamin C reduces free radical damage, inhibits tyrosinase (which encourages melanin production and thus age spots), and protects collagen and elastin levels.

    Here are some tips on the most effective way to use the Mineral UV Shield:
    - Apply sunscreen all over exposed skin. This includes around the eyes, tops of feet, back of hands and even your hairline and scalp! The non-greasy texture will penetrate deep into the epidermis, protecting against external aggressors all day long.
    - Apply the cream thirty minutes before going out in the sun (it can be worn alone or under foundation. The texture has a weightless, silky and non-suffocating formula and won’t damage clothes.
    - Keep re-applying the Mineral UV Shield every two to four hours to ensure you’re fully protecting your skin. External factors such as water and sweat can affect the effectiveness of any sunscreen.
    - Always wear a sunscreen of at least SPF30. This level of protection blocks out 90% of the sun’s rays!

  • Gentlemen’s Facial
    The Grooming Guide

    June 14th, 2016

    Omorovicza Grooming Guide

    Today, our guest blogger Nick Cox reviews the Deep Pore and Refining Facial at the Four Seasons Hotel, Park Lane. Nick Cox is the Editor of The Grooming Guide

    A workout for the face

    In our desire to look rugged not rough, men no longer wince at the mere mention of having a facial. That’s great news for our coarser skin and larger pores, as they dictate that we’ll actually find this treatment more beneficial than most ladies! Omorovicza have been quick to respond to the skincare needs of the modern man with a range of products that harness the healing benefits of Hungarian thermal waters.

    A great way to experience their product range is with the deep cleansing and pore refining ‘Omorovicza Gentlemen’s Facial’ which is currently on offer at The Four Seasons Park Lane. Expect more steam than the Flying Scotsman and relaxation levels that can’t be found at the bottom of a whisky tumbler! Pleasurable might not be the word for the pore cleaning extraction process, but the firm hands and light touch of my therapist ensured that I was swiftly dozing off, as she used Thermal Cleansing Balm to draw out impurities and provide my skin with nutrients.

    Who knew that sloughing off dead skin cells and stimulating circulation could be so relaxing? Or that a classic Hungarian facial massage would be the highlight of my week, like a workout for the face it instantly lifted and firmed my skin. The shoulder massage that followed was balm to my tight muscles and just what I needed to slide me into the weekend.

    When I look in the mirror… it’s worked, after 90 minutes of unbridled attention my skin has bounced back! I don’t look so old and I certainly don’t look so tired. Do you want to take the man in your life from grey to glowing? If so, you know where to head…. go on make his day!
