Located in Scandinavia, Northern Europe, on the Eastern Coast of the Baltic Sea, Estonia has vast quantities of untouched nature, clean air, and pure water.
Estonian nature is unique due to its short summers with long days and long winters with freezing temperatures. Therefore, the plants, flowers, and herbs have a short but intense growth season and due to high proton content, they are much richer in nutrients than plants grown elsewhere.
Our vast and versatile forests, quality soils and miraculous flora are highly valued and protected by the local community. In fact, a total of 23% of Estonia is declared as a Nature Reserve area.
Käina Bay Nature Reserve
Käina Bay Nature Reserve is proudly one of them. A 9 square kilometer marine area in the Orjaku village between the Estonian islands Hiiumaa and Kassari.
This very shallow marine area has a special relevance for biodiversity protection.
It is an important breeding ground and resting place for migratory birds, with over 100 habitants of unique species at its peak.
It is hydrologically very highly prized for the prevention of coastal erosion, sediment trapping, maintenance of water quality, and support of food chains.
And it is also an important site for environmental education, scientific research, and of course, for being the origin of one of the most unique wild origin substances in the world – The Käina Bay Curative Mineral Sea Mud aka ORYAKU™ MUD.
A Nordic origin natural and organic cross-sectorial raw material which has evolved through various biological and geological processes throughout thousands of years.
Full of natural antioxidants, biominerals, vitamins, flavonoids, lipids and organic acids to treat various neurological, rheumatological and cardiovascular disorders.
The more of a traditional balneotherapeutical use in skin pathology in the past, has lately transformed towards more of a wide-scale everyday use in the personal care industry. Special skincare formulations and the rise of people’s consciousness of skincare ingredients safety and efficacy can be contributed as the key factors supporting the trend.
As said, Estonian nature is unique due to its short summers with long days and long winters with freezing temperatures. Therefore, the plants, flowers, and herbs have a short but intense growth season and due to high proton content, they are much richer in nutrients than plants grown elsewhere.
These plants have been naturally macerated by microbial action for a long period of time, resulting in a very high concentration of bioactive substances. The extraordinary chemical transformation by biological degradation of organic materials through biochemical processes makes them highly bioavailable to the human body. The unique molecular structure of the substance is so fine that it penetrates the skin and rejuvenates cells, making it one of the most powerful therapeutic mud in the world.
All this while containing remarkably low levels of naturally occurring heavy metals. For example, the content of Lead (Pb) has been tested to be 5-12x less than in the well-known Dead Sea Mud. For this reason, the Oryaku™ Mud has been declared also as one of the ecologically cleanest mud in the world!
