The island of Ischia is not only rich in thermal springs with numerous therapeutic virtues, it also boasts a fortunate geographic position which guarantees ideal climatic and environmental conditions for restoring the body and the spirit on the entire island: the rocky cliffs of Epomeo, the vineyard cultivation on the gently rolling hills, the relaxing pine groves, the fresh sea breeze, the beaches and the abundance of suggestive panoramas make the ancient land of Inarime a sweet, enchanted garden where one can enjoy the benefits of the springs of eternal youth.
The thermal waters of the island of Ischia have been famous and used since olden times. As shown by the numerous archaeological findings discovered on the site of Pithecusa and conserved at the Archaeological Museum of Villa Arbusto in Lacco Ameno, the first Euboean colonists, (VIII century B.C.), appreciated and used the thermal spring waters of Ischia. In fact, the Greeks used the thermal waters to strengthen the spirit and the body and as a remedy for the consequences of war wounds, (in the pre-antibiotic era), attributing supernatural powers to the waters and vapours that gushed out of the earth; it was not by coincidence that temples dedicated to divinities, such as the one dedicated to Apollo at Delfi, could be found at each thermal resort.
The aim of modern thermal medicine is not only to cure the body of its diseases and from serious or less serious illnesses but also to help find a psychological-physical balance, recovering the aesthetic dimension of the treatments. From this viewpoint, the thermal waters become an active principal of cosmetic products: in fact, the trace elements abundant in the salsobromiodic and sulphurous waters of the Green Island explain numerous beneficial effects on skin trophism both directly and indirectly (through the products elaborated from the thermal waters by the so called bioglee – algae and bacteria) with a keratoplastic, keratolytic, sebum-regulating, anti-edemigenic and antiseptic activity. The action of the active principles in the thermal waters is fulfilled both in the skin, where it facilitates cellular replacement (keratoplastic and keratolytic activity), and on the derma, where it regulates the micro-circle and the synthesis of collagen and elastin (renovating and anti-edemigenic action).
