From simple clay to aged mud
Rich in trace elements, is gathered from the bottom of a small volcanic lake in the Euganean Hills and then cleansed of impurities and matured in the thermal water. This enriched mud deeply detoxifies, cools, decongests and oxygenates blood and tissues, resulting in increased energy and vitality.
The water's chemical composition and temperature play an important role in this therapeutic action. The maturation process helps to develop the particular microflora, vegetal (algae) and animals (micro organisms), contained in our unique pug.
During the process the pug is abundantly colonized by numerous micro algae (Cyanophyta or Cianoficae and Bacillariophyta or Diatomacae) found in the ecosystem of the Euganean Thermal Basin; they give the mud its special chemical-physical and therapeutic properties.
Our mud is incubated for at least two months in a continuous thermal water flow. Among the key microorganisms colonizing the mud are cyanobacteria, and, amongst these, one of the most abundant and important belongs to the Phormidium strain. Isolated for the first time in our mud and extensively monitored, it produces a high anti-inflammatory action, unique for its absence of collateral effects, even after repeated treatments.
