HydrO18™ Activated Water™ is water that has been treated with a patented process and blend of ingredients from nature to mimic the lipid profile of the skin, changing the water from being incompatible with the skin to being bio-compatible. It’s still water — it looks like water and acts like water (it still mixes the other ingredients together) — and now it also hydrates the skin, feeds the skin with nutrients, and is a more sustainable water, making the formula it is used in eco-friendly and ultra-hydrating, backed by multiple clinical studies.
What does the name HydrO18 Activated Water mean? Hydr = Hydration, O = Oleic Acid, 18 = the lipid # for Oleic Acid. Activated = Water by itself in a product does nothing for the skin. This patented process “Activates” the water, taking it from being a silent ingredient to being beneficial.
HydrO18™ Activated Water™ uses a lipid profile from nature (Macadamia nut oil that contains high levels of oleic acid, up to 60%) that is very similar to the lipid profile of the stratum corneum, the outer layer of the skin.
