Peloid develops in places where fine-grained material settles which is carried by an inland watercourse and fresh and saltwater mix where the natural formation of peloid happens. Treatments with peloid are used for the treatment of rheumatic illnesses, osteoarthritis, gynaecological problems, sciatica, skin diseases, trauma and alike, and it is also used in cosmetics for the making of various facemasks for skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction.
Peloid can be applied to the affected part of the body or to the whole body, and before and during the therapy it is warmed by the sun’s heat. Also recommended is bathing in the warm seawater and sitting for some time in a warm ambience.
The first research of peloid in Soline cove was made in 1965 upon the initiative of a doctor from Thalassotherapia in Crikvenica. At one time peloid was used for therapeutic purposes with good results, however, due to the problem of transport in Crikvenica and the return of the peloid to the source, it soon came to an end.
The next study was in 2003 when 19 locations were investigated. It was confirmed that it corresponds to a group of underwater loose sediments of a fine-grain structure, created by the silting and settling in salty seawater and that it belongs to a group of salty, slightly sulphuric sea muds and that could be used for health purposes.
