Only few people know that peat baths and wraps are no longer just the privileges of spas and specialized rehabilitation facilities. Now you can make your small Spa even at your home! In addition to our traditional spa cosmetics THERMELOVE and SINOVA, we have recently added a portfolio of peat and clay products from an east bohemian company SFAGNUM. These products are characterized by the high content of minerals and humic acids that are contained in peat, which is mined in unpolluted localities in the Czech Republic and Latvia.
Peloids - real gifts of nature
The word "peloid" comes from the greek word "pelos" and means peat and peat soil, mud, etc., which have the properties and effects of natural healing resources. The peat used in SFAGNUM products is regulary tested by the Reference Laboratory for Natural Medicinal Resources of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic, which guarantees their quality and safety.
Peat and clay are really the true gifts of nature. In the wet and cold environment of swamps, organic plant and small animal remain decomposed hundreds and thousands of years in acidic and anaerobic conditions and are deposited in thick layers. Peat formation is a remarkable natural process that takes a very long time. Only one millimeter of layer is formed per year, and so the peat bogs, which are in the Czech Republic 8 meters thick, grew at least 8,000 years. Replacing this process or artificially speeding it up is impossible.
In prehistory, peat bog had a great ritual significance. In the Bronze and Iron Age, they were considered to be the home of relics and gods. Some Northern European peat bogs have shown the ability to preserve animal tissues for millennia. Perfectly preserved remnants of human bodies have also been found in many places all over the world thanks to the action of humic acids. For centuries, these findings prove the unique properties of peat products to positively affect the entire human organism.
At present, peloids are used in the form of wraps, baths, facial masks and peat extracts due to their bacteriostatic, cleansing and regenerative effects. They also have an extraordinary thermal effect - slow and gentle warming of the body, not just surface, but also deep-bodied organs and muscles. We must not forget their anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. They are recommended for people suffering from rheumatic diseases, musculoskeletal disorders, nervous disorders and are suitable for the regeneration and release of mental tension.

Peloids are nowadays more and more popular in home care. None of today's growing plants can compare to the genetically rich peloid origin and the spectrum of their water-soluble compounds. It is hard to find any other substance that cleanses the skin from harmful substances that have a deleterious effect, and also stimulate the immune system by stimulating the metabolism and regeneration of cells that favor the central nervous system.
