Information

Lagoon water arises in the heart of the atolls of French Polynesia, a privileged environment where the coral reefs edge turquoise blue lagoons.

This resource, naturally rich in minerals and trace elements, is continually regenerated by the natural endo-upwelling phenomenon which takes place mainly along the coastlines facing the great oceans. Endo-upwelling occurs when the deep and rich waters of the ocean rise to the surface by thermal convection. It begins in the basalt substrata at a depth of 3,000 to 5,000 metres; the geothermal flow thus created is transformed in the coral reefs into an outflow of interstitial water very rich in nutrients.

The pure marine waters rising from the depths of the ocean are overflowing with mineral salts and marine ions; they continue to be enriched as they pass through the porous limestone and reef substrates. Owing to this considerable addition of nutrient elements, pelagic life can develop and lagoon water becomes uniquely pure. The beneficial effects of seawater have been proved in a great many studies and humans have been using it since ancient times. This tradition still continues today in thalassotherapy and the Spa movement, which are gathering more and more followers…

 

Manufacturing Process

Lagoon water is extracted in the heart of the lagoon, near the barrier reef, at a minimal depth of 10 metres, in order to protect its qualities, its richness, and its purity.

Then, this lagoon water is immediately treated by a high pressure sterilizing tangential filtration in order to optimize its preservation.
