Ripple Effect: How Hydration is Making Waves in the Industry

Since the beginning, water has been a healing element of spa. after all, the word does come from the Latin phrase sanitas per aquam, which means health through water. From balneotherapy, which involves bathing in mineral hot springs or applying geothermal mud for the treatment of various diseases, to hydrotherapy, the wellness benefits of water are well documented. However, this precious commodity is getting a makeover in the industry, as skincare manufacturers introduce a variety of micellar waters and other water-based products as well as seek to incorporate water from around the globe to give their formulas a healing edge. Drinking water is also in the spotlight, as spas look to offer more eco-friendly and sustainable options than bottled water. As Leonardo da Vinci once wrote, “Water is the driving force of all nature.”
