Up to 80% of any hair or skin product is made up of water. Water plays a critical role in the health and well-being of any plant, animal, or human. Water helps us to stay hydrated, it helps us to get rid of bacteria in our system and it will prolong and maintain life.
Shampoo is the one product that requires the most water to perform well. Without enough water in a shampoo, we wouldn’t be able to get a nice foamy lather to appear when the product comes into contact with our hands or hair. Additionally, we want the product to spread easily around the hair and scalp, thus water is our best friend when it comes to blending ingredients.
Pay close attention to the back of some baby shampoo labels next time you’re in a grocery store. Most companies will list water or purified water as their number one ingredient.
Glacial water is the foundational ingredient for all Baja Baby products and here's why.
Water - An Essential Component Of Life
Glacial water hasn’t been exposed to any form of toxic contamination.
Glacial water is rich in trace elements and minerals.
Glacial water is intensely hydrating, helping to alleviate the most sensitive of skins.
Glacial Water contains mineral salt levels 4ppm (0.4mg/l), which is 250 times lower than that for normal low mineralization water. Its purity and low mineralization make it the perfect base for skin and hair care products.
Glacial water is ultra-hydrating, lubricating, and perfect for sensitive skin because it is so pure, free of contaminants, toxins, and other damaging components (like nitrates and ammonia). It can help to alleviate skin damage, by offering a calming and refreshing effect, helping to re-establish balance.
So if glacial water is all that and a bag of chips, how come everyone isn’t using it? Well, we can only guess that it’s probably because, as a raw ingredient, it costs considerably more than purified water does. Here at Baja Baby, we won't cut corners on raw ingredients if there's a safer, cleaner, and more effective way to do things and that's why glacial water is our base of choice.
