Thousands of years ago, when no pollution existed, ice formed high atop the mountains of Iceland. Skyn ICELAND's Pure Icelandic Glacial Waters originated there, in the prehistoric Blue Mountains where the rain and snow converted to pure white ice. Any Icelander will tell you it takes hundreds of years for the waters to go through a natural filtration process. Over time, as the ice melts and gradually runs down the mountains, it filters through inert layers of lava rock and trickles into the ground picking up minerals from the volcanic bedrock. It then flows into naturally occurring underground reservoirs.
Today, skyn ICELAND's waters run into a government protected natural spring in an ancient lava field. This is located in the heart of an isolated nature reserve called Heidmork. Heiðmörk is where Reykjavík' water reservoirs and drinking water wells are located.
Iceland is essentially pollution-free because:
Of its location in the Mid-Atlantic Ocean
It is almost totally powered with geothermal and hydroelectric energy.
It is isolated and far from industrial pollution
It has one of the cleanest environments on the planet and is universally acclaimed for the purity of its water. Iceland Water has some of the lowest total dissolved solids due to the natural filtration process that occurs when glacial water filters through Iceland's porous volcanic bedrock. Think of your standard carbon water filter.... now think of that filter extending miles beneath the earth's surface. That's why the water is so pure.
Glacial Waters Make Us Healthier! Skyn ICELAND's Glacial Water Mineral Analysis
pH 8.88 SU
Iceland Glacial Water with ph levels of 8.88 can help your body maintain a healthy pH level by reducing acidity in your body and restoring its natural balance. It is one of the purest waters in the world (i.e.: absolutely no contaminants) and medical research has shown that people who have a high body pH are less susceptible to major illnesses, may have higher energy levels and a healthier body weight.
Builds healthy bones and teeth
Increases blood circulation
Softens skin and acts as a detoxifying cleanser that draws impurities out of the body through the skin
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body
It reduces inflammation and can be used as a temporary wrinkle reducer.
