Peloid – “black gold” from the Ustroń Health Resort

Peloid – “black gold” from the Ustroń Health Resort


Peloid is one of the most precious gifts from nature. It is called “black gold” because it is rich in organic substances. It is a peloid, a type of peat with a high degree of humification (decomposition). Thanks to organic acids and salts, it has anti-inflammatory, bacteriostatic and bactericidal properties.

Peloid beautifully cares for the skin, so it is used, not only in regeneration and beauty treatments, but also in cosmetics. 

Peloid is rich in valuable organic and inorganic substances, as well as salts. These substances regenerate damaged tissues, increase their circulation and activate reactions that increase cell metabolism. Hormones contained in peloid are used in gynaecological conditions. Overheating of the tissues during treatments improves oxygenation and nourishment, and speeds up the metabolism. Moreover, they also have antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties.

The excellent peloid used in the Ustroń Health Resort comes from our own open-pit mine. After cleansing, mixing with water and heating, a therapeutic substance is obtained, used for compresses applied locally, for wrapping the entire body, and for baths in oak bathtubs. The body absorbs all the valuable substances from the peat, but during these treatments, sweat, exfoliated epithelium, bacteria and other contaminants are also excreted into the peat from the skin. The skin and body is cleansed, and the process is referred to as “skin dialysis”. Therefore, peat can be used only once.

The peloid used in PU “Ustroń” S.A. always has the highest quality, is fresh and contains the optimal concentration of organic substances, because it comes from our own deposits, and its composition is constantly monitored by our specialists.

The excellent peloid used in the Ustroń Health Resort comes from our own open-pit mine, a deposit in Zabłocie. It is located approximately 1300–1500 m from the Vistula River and nearly 2 km from Lake Goczałkowickie. The Ustroń Health Resort began exploiting the deposit in the mid-90s.
