Himalayan Spring Water


The therapeutic use of water from thermal springs or external spas to treat different skin conditions dates back to ancient times.

These waters are recognised for their numerous benefits, including the treatment of sensitive or inflamed skin in addition to comforting joint pain, arthritis and alleviating burns.

 

Our pure Himalayan Spring Water is collected straight from the foothills of the Himalayas, in order to get the highest concentration of macro minerals for our products. The waters journey takes 20 years through the Himalayan stones and soil allowing it to absorb these extremely rich minerals, making this water unique throughout the world.

 

With a PH of 7.8, our water is alkaline. Alkaline water is an abundant source of antioxidants which help to neutralise free radicals and slow down the ageing process of the skin. It supports cells and tissues allowing them to regenerate and repair themselves, creating a stronger cell structure.

 

Our Himalayan Spring Water contains a high concentration of calcium, magnesium and potassium, well known for their cleansing, soothing, hydrating, protective and anti-ageing benefits for the skin.

Macromineral benefits 


Calcium

Calcium helps cell turnover rate, regulating how fast the epidermis generates new skin cells to replace old ones and how quickly it sheds old skin cells. Calcium also regulates the content of skin cell lipids, providing a barrier to external elements.

 

Magnesium

Magnesium is an activator of numerous enzymes, especially those

that regulate DNA replication and repair. It also acts as an antioxidant to help the skin to fight against free radicals. Magnesium rich water acts as a barrier to protect dry skin.

 

Potassium

Potassium helps to maintain a healthy outer skin barrier and regulates water balance. Contributing to cellular membranes permeability, potassium helps in the regeneration and growth of skin cells.
