The Power of Icelandic Water.

At BIOEFFECT we celebrate the richness of our natural Icelandic landscape - including our pristine Icelandic water. Whilst most skincare is formulated with water (aka aqua), the truth is that not all water is created equally. Our Icelandic spring water is one of the purest in the world.

All credit is due to our unique fire and ice geography consisting of volcanoes and glaciers. Our land of bedrock and lava purifies melting glacier water leaving behind only trace amounts of hard minerals such as calcium and magnesium. This is what gives us pure, soft water that we’re proud to drink straight from the tap and formulate into our effective skincare. Using Icelandic water allows us to champion our “less is more” approach with water as an ingredient that offers real skincare benefits.

Our hero ingredient, Barley EGF, thrives in a water-led environment rather than an oil-based one. Across our skincare range, we formulate with Icelandic water to ensure the purity and efficacy of our products. We use water from our own natural spring that has been geologically filtered through layers of inert volcanic lava.

To further harness the power of Icelandic water, we created our cleansing collection: BIOEFFECT Micellar Cleansing Water and BIOEFFECT OSA Water Mist. Together they hydrate, soften, and refresh the skin.

Take a gentle approach to cleansing with our BIOEFFECT Micellar Cleansing Water. A base of pure, soft Icelandic water formulated with cleansing micelles and four hydrating agents to further moisturize the skin.

Our on-the-go hydrating favorite, the BIOEFFECT OSA Water Mist, is also made with pure, geologically filtered Icelandic water. It contains optimised Hyaluronic Acid and Orthosilicic Acid (aka OSA) which is a bioavailable form of silica that the skin can actually absorb. OSA is a rarity in nature, but here in Iceland, we can harness it from the high-temperature geothermal steam. Use throughout the day to hydrate, refresh and rebalance the skin.
