What is Fango Clay?
Mature thermal mud (fango) is a mixture of clay, thermal water and micro-organisms. The maturation process takes place in basins that for two to three months are bathed in thermal water that flows over the clay at 60°C and are constantly exposed to the sun’s rays. It is this process that allows the clay to undergo a metamorphosis and develops a colony of algae and organic microflora and increases its suppleness and heat retention properties. The thermal stress aids the formation of microorganisms that give the fango clay its anti-inflammatory and therapeutic effects.
Fango clay became popular in the early eighteen hundreds in Europe where it was used as a natural way treatment for a variety of skin conditions. The clay is popular because of its healing properties and its wide range of applications. Fango, which is the Italian word for mud, has increased heat retention properties compared to other types of clay. This means it can be warmed and applied to the skin to improve circulation, remove toxins and tighten the skin.
