A - LIKE AQUA

AQUA: WATER, ALSO: H2O | DIHYDROGEN OXIDE | DIPROTIUM OXIDE

A daily 2 litres of water (8 ounces) are recommended for adults to maintain health. But not everywhere in the world can people drink water as safely from the tap as here in Vienna, where the tap water comes directly from Alpine natural springs.

SURPRISING IN MANY WAYS

You surely know water, ice and steam - But did you you know that

  • water is the ONLY common substance to exist as solid, liquid and gas form on Earth?
  • water is also an acid and a base at the same time? (ph-value 7)
  • pure water only freezes at -48,3 °C?
  • when you feel thirsty you have already lost >1% of your overall water amount?

'Water is the driving force of all nature'  (Leonardo Da Vinci)

ONLY WATER AFTER ALL? THE SECRET BEHIND THE USE OF WATER IN SKIN CARE

Critics might argue that skin care products have often 70% water or more in them so they think they cannot be effective. But if you think this is only water after all then, just think again: Your loved ones are made of 70% of water as well - are they 'only water' then? We guess not. The truth is that many active ingredients work at extremely low dosages, but they seldom work without water. Water dissolves more substances than any other liquid does. 

In cosmetics formulation the following types of water can be used:

  • distilled water
  • tap water
  • deionized water
  • demineralized water
  • ultra pure water 

 

In our production process we use AQUA demineralized and sterilized. Listed under CAS-no. 7732-18-5 of the Chemical Abstracts Service, AQUA is the most widely used cosmetic ingredient. It has stunning properties. Its main job is as a solving agent, helping to mix ingredients together.
