Bioglea is an organic-mineral substance (plankton) of gelatinous consistency and variable colour, which is formed in the thermal water when it comes into contact with air.
The Bioglea wich naturally grows in the sulphurous waters has always been widely used in the treatment of skin diseases and its therapeutic properties have been known since ancient times. It’s a short still essential step from medicine to cosmetics. Bioglea™, as a purified extract of plankton, is the base ingredient of all Terme di Saturnia cosmetic formulas. It is an exclusive and valuable active ingredient which has extraordinary normalising and moisturising effects on the skin. Its effectiveness has been confirmed by studies published at major university centres including Milan, Padua, Perugia and Florence. Its skin tolerability has been demonstrated through a series of extensive tests conducted by the Institute of Thermal Medicine and Scientific Cosmetology of the Terme di Saturnia, in collaboration with the most prestigious Italian universities.
