aQuas / as essential as water to your skin

As we well know, water has unique properties in the skin. It acts as a building material; as a carrier for nutrients; and as a lubricant. Body's thermoregulation takes place in the skin and water gets lost through the cells of dermis. This cause skin cells lose their water within, therefore a precise regulation of water balance is needed for the welfare of the skin cells. Surely skin cells have this regulation, but to keep them in better condition and preserve their vitality, you need to give additional care in preserving the humidity within the skin cells.
aQuas knows that water is essential for the life, want to carry or retain more water in the skin, which will rejuvenate skin, keep it in good health and look charming. Water carries many nutrients in it and itself is the only liquid nutrient, which is really essential for skin hydration and is vital for the skin to function properly. Skin moisture requirements depend on numerous factors such as gender, age, climate, physical activity, diet. As skin ages it gets dry and lose its radiance.
aQuas is one of the brands of Vivatinell Cosmopharmaceutics. Vivatinell is UK based company producing many different functional cosmetics. aQuas as essential as water to your skin reflects purity and safety. We seek safe and effective ingredients in producing aQuas. We share our ingredient philosophy with you so that you may understand our choices and our thinking.

Mineral Rich, Hydrothermal Water Used in aQuas
Throughout the oceans of the world there exist undersea mountain ranges, which have formed as result of volcanic activity. These are formally known as rift zones – where the movement of tectonic plates is tearing the earth's crust apart. As the oceanic crust stretches, it thins and is cracked by giant fissures. Magma from deep down wells up through these cracks and fissures, rushing to fill in the gaps created by the rifting of the plates. When the magma reaches the surface of the oceanic crust, it sometimes oozes out as lava on the ocean floor, creating new oceanic crust as it cools. In many places, the magma simply wells up beneath the weakened and thin areas of crust and fills in the cracks and fissures without ever breaking the surface. Scientists had suspected that the long chains of undersea mountains were geologically active zones of the earth's crust and had predicted the existence of hydrothermal vents before the first human ever laid eyes on one. The hydrothermal vents were a direct result of the volcanic activity happening under all that ocean water, as opposed to dry land. A hydrothermal vent is a lot like an underwater geyser. Sea water seeps down into the cracks and fissures created by the spreading of the sea floor, sometimes as much as two or three miles into the earth's crust. As the water comes into contact with the veins and channels of superheated, molten magma, the sea water is superheated. Then the hotter sea water rises to the surface back through the fissures, carrying with it minerals leached from the crustal rock below. The superheated seawater then spews out of the holes in the crust, rising quickly above the colder, denser waters of the deep ocean. As the hot seawater spews out of the holes, we collect the hot seawater. The minerals suspended in the hot water and stay dissolved so far they are moved up above the sea surface. Scientists have gone down to explore and study these deep ocean hydrothermal vents and were completely surprised to find the areas immediately around the vents teeming with abundant life. The temperature of the water coming out of the vents has been measured at the source and it varies from just 68 degrees to as much as 600 degrees Fahrenheit. At sea level, water reaches the boiling point at 225 degrees Fahrenheit, but down in the deep ocean around hydrothermal vents where the water can reach well over the boiling point, the water coming out of the vents doesn't boil! What prevents the scalding hot seawater from boiling (turning into vapor) is the extreme hydrostatic pressure of all the overlying water. What surprised scientists was that there was an entire ecosystem, a community of diverse life forms, absolutely thriving in conditions that were previously thought to be inhospitable to any kind of life.
