I recently discovered AQUA Carpatica, a very refreshing naturally carbonated water, that is said to have skincare benefits. It is lightly carbonated, has no heavy mineral taste, and is a nice alternative to only drinking regular water.
According to AQUA Carpatica,
Because of the location of AQUA Carpatica's protected springs, the water is completely nitrate free and loaded with natural minerals. Nitrates are contaminates from the runoff from fertilizer use, leakage from septic tanks and erosion of natural deposits. You can imagine how bad that is for your body!
In addition to being free of nitrates, AQUA Carpatica's naturally sparkling mineral water offers skincare benefits from:
- Calcium – which helps the body generate new skin cells and shed old cells
- Magnesium – which has anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and allergy-reducing properties
- A nearly neutral pH of 6.5 – the closest pH level to pure water compared to other sparkling waters on the market
- Natural carbonation – which aids in exfoliation and oxygenation of the skin
About AQUA Carpatica,
AQUA Carpatica comes from springs deep within the Carpathian Mountains – an ancient land where time seems to stand still, leaving only the pristine beauty of nature and history. It's the last wild forest in Europe, and with no agriculture or industrial activity in the surrounding areas, it's like going back to a time before chemicals, fertilizers, CFCs and other contaminants even existed.
With AQUA Carpatica, purity and taste go hand in hand. Millions of years of volcanic activity have filtered impurities at the source, and endowed our water with its unrivaled flavor. Natural minerals carbonate AQUA Carpatica's sparkling water – the only nitrate-free, naturally sparkling water on Earth.
The springs that provide the foundation for AQUA Carpatica have been preserved from the beginning of time and they'll be protected for thousands of years more. Taste AQUA Carpatica, a taste bestowed by nature, a spring safeguarded by nature. www.AquaCarpatica.com
Overall Assessment: Perfect picks for a fun Labor Day holiday! Enjoy, and remember to continually reapply your sunscreen and drink plenty of water!
