The Key Ingredient

Swiss Glacier Water

Swiss Glacier Water

Hidden in a deep valley in between the most impressive mountains Zermatt is dominated by a huge pyramidal rock, the world famous Matterhorn. Crystal clear, pure air and a heavenly quietness are found in this scenic place. From the famous mountain region comes the purest Zermatt Glacier Water preserved untouched for centuries.

 

Encapsulated Glacier Water from the Matterhorn is a liposomal preparation with a synergistic combination of lecithin molecules and unique minerals. The ultra thin lecithin capsules transport the alpine moisture with its unique minerals deep into skin to a place where it profits the skin most. The additional benefit is achieved thanks to the minerals, this means, alpine remineralisation and hydration in the deep skin layers – a formula which tones and revitalises and refreshes the complexion.
