Biology and Ecology
The Sea Silt that we harvest comes from Marine Parks or Natura 2000 sites on the Brittany coasts that are protected for the diversity of species they contain or for the quality of their waters. It is composed of extremely fine, naturally micronised, particles, which have been deposited on the seabed over the centuries. The interstitial seawater also contains a quantity of marine minerals, making the sediments even richer and giving them much greater therapeutic properties than simple clays.
Sea Silt is collected by hand from places that are only accessible at the lowest spring tides. It is then processed at low temperature to preserve all its richness.
Sea Silt, a 100% natural product, is used in Thalasso / Balneo that take advantage of its multiple properties. When moistened its appearance of marine mud is restored and it can be applied as a mud wrapping.
Spas / Thalasso / Balneo
Sea silts are reputed to have two types of properties:
- they have special thermoplastic properties,
- they allow phenomena of exchange of their marine ions to
They therefore help decongest and soothe the body.
During perspiration, they trap the toxins from the body and at
the same time release their marine ions, trace elements and
Sea silt is also a valuable aid in caring for skin problems.
- Mix 350 g of sea silt with 350 g of tepid water to obtain
a smooth uniform paste.
- Leave standing for a few minutes.
- Apply in thick layers, taking care to previously clean the
area to be treated.
- Wrap the person being treated in warming blankets for
30 minutes or put under an infrared lamp for about 20
