Bask in the Benefits of Black Sand on Volcano Island in Sicily

Sydney, 14 August 2018:

A day at the beach is good for the soul however it is the rare black sand found on the beaches near Therasia Resort Sea & Spa that offers health benefits far beyond mental wellbeing. So much so that the resort has developed a spa body scrub treatment utilising locally sourced black sand making it their most requested treatment.

The volcanic sand inherent to Volcano Island where Therasia is located originates from the great amount of material that the mountain emits in eruption: basalt, lava, ash. The rain carries the lava particles to the sea, which accumulate and form the volcanic black sand, with characteristic silver-gray reflections.

The meeting of the black volcanic sand and the sea water creates an important element for skin due to its richness in sulfur, magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium. These minerals are beneficial for luminous and healthy skin. The innate richness of volcanic black sand makes it an excellent ingredient for skin purifying, detoxifying, anti-stress and protective properties against harmful external agents, increasing the natural defense of the skin.

The black volcanic black sand scrub is an excellent treatment against imperfections such as cellulite, localised adiposity and sagging skin, promoting the elimination of toxins, a fundamental cause with the reduction of the microcirculation of these problems. It also stimulates the natural cell regeneration for a radiant and renewed skin.

Experience the benefits of black sand with a Black Sand Scrub treatment available exclusively at Therasia Resort & Spa priced at AUD110. For ultimate relaxation book Therasia Resort Sea & Spa’s Summer Dream package overnight accommodation, a gourmet experience at the 1-Michelin star restaurant and a relaxing massage per person. Prices for the summer dream package start at AUD1553 for a minimum 3 nights stay.
