Alaska Glacial Mud Takes Las Vegas!

Nancy Griffin

Las Vegas was the last place I expected to receive a mud treatment with Copper River Delta glacial silt from Alaska. At Universal’s Spa Day Event at The Cosmopolitan, however, I was able to experience an amazing body treatment featuring Alaska Glacial Mud . Expert spa therapist Denette Kennison started off the treatment with a body brush, then slathered my body in the silky and luxurious glacial mud.  My face and scalp were massaged for 20 minutes while the mud dried, then I headed to the shower to rinse off.  Heaven!

The Alaska Glacial Mud Company manufactures pure glacier derived skin care and spa therapy for face and body made with wild Alaskan and certified organic ingredients. The mud is harvested from one of the most pristine mineral-rich glacial mud deposits in the world. Pacific Northwest botanicals, such as chamomile, horse tail, elder flower, nettle, and seaweed are also present in the glacial mud. Universal distributes “The Glacial Facial” retail kit along with back bar products for body treatments.

Alaska Glacial Mud was founded by Alaska resident Lauren Padawer, a 33-year-old from the fishing town of Cordova southeast of Anchorage. More than 20 glaciers depositing 100 million tons of glacial silt a year on the 700,000-acre Copper River delta are practically in Padawer’s back yard. Padawer’s inspiration for a beauty product made of glacial mud struck during a rafting trip down the Copper River.

A sustainable resource obtained without hurting the environment, Alaska Glacial Mud is an ideal partner for Universal.  The company always pledges to use the most eco-friendly and socially responsible methods for harvesting and manufacturing our products without the use of mechanical or explosive techniques. They never use synthetic fragrances, colors or fillers. All products are free of propylene glycol and parabens, and are never tested on animals.
