Built up at the bottom of the bays over a surface area of several millimeters, natural earth and marine elements mix together and deposit sediment to form a marine silt. Its rich sulfide content gives marine mud an easily recognizable acidic odor.
Marine mud has real ionic concentrations due to marine fauna and flora. It is renowned for its analgesic power against rheumatism, except in the case of severe outbreaks, and for certain skin conditions.
Used in cataplasms or directly on the body and mixed with seawater, marine mud traps toxins and gently purifies the body. Dosed at 2 kilos of mud per 500 liters of seawater, it acts physiologically with its plasticity and power to retain water and heat, and chemically, via the movement of certain of its trace elements through the skin.
To be effective, the body wrap must last around 25 minutes. While you relax, the skin absorbs the components present in the mud and the effect of the heat removes toxins, which asphyxiate the body, through the pores of the epidermis. Recharged with vitamins, the body is freed of its impurities and the skin becomes softer.
