Alaska Glacial Mud Co. sustainably hand-harvests raw glacial mineral mud from the vast Copper River Delta where timeless glaciers have ground remote mountains into pure mineral-rich powder. They manufacture a niche line of glacier derived spa therapy products for face and body for spa professionals and at-home use. Alaska Glacial Mud Co. never uses synthetics, artificial fragrances or colors, parabens, pthalates, sulfates, fillers or toxins. Made in the USA with wildcrafted Alaskan ingredients, their products are certified under the Leaping Bunny program (cruelty-free) and the company is a signer of The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. While the playful spa quality of the Copper River mud may have inspired Alaska Glacial Mud Co., it was the river and its inhabitants that gave voice to the importance of sustainability and activism in their company philosophy. In addition to being purveyors of the finest mineral-rich Alaska Glacial Mud, they are also advocates for the Copper River Delta/Watershed and pledge 10% of their profits to local organizations that love, work and fight for its protection.
