 Fascinating Nature

 

Water and minerals: the chemistry of life

If you thought water was a simple, innocent molecule, think again. Water is from far one of the most fascinating substance on our planet. Water remains one the major mysteries of the Universe. It supports life like no other substance does as chemical reactions in all plants and animals take place in water medium, releasing or consuming water in their metabolism. Life on Earth totally depends on water as living organisms are largely composed of water – about 70 to 90 percent by weight, and above 99 percent by absolute number of water molecules.

Water is vital both as a solvent in which many of the body's solutes dissolve and as an essential part of many metabolic life processes. Without water, these particular metabolic processes could not exist. Most of chemical reactions occur in the cell itself. Water plays a central role in biological and chemical, especially acid-base, processes. Equally important to our comprehension of the structure and dynamics of water is understanding the role it plays as a solvent facilitating long-ranged charge transport of species such as ions, excess protons and hydroxide ions. The excess proton and hydroxide ion, both particularly important in acid-base chemistry and bio-molecular function, plays an important role in the metabolism of all organisms as reflected by the wide variety of chemical reactions in which they take part. Ions are cofactors of enzymes, catalyzing basic functions such as electron transport, redox reactions, and energy metabolism; they are essential for maintaining the osmotic pressure of cells too.

 

Water, the universal solvent

Water is often referred to as the universal, superb solvent. Mainly due to the marked polarity of the water molecule and its tendency to form hydrogen bonds with other molecules. All of the components in cells (proteins, DNA and polysaccharides) are dissolved in water deriving their structure and activity from their interactions with water. Water dissolves more substances in greater quantities than any other common liquid making water key important in chemical, physical and biological processes.

 

Oxidation-reduction reactions

Basically, reduction means the addition of an election (e-), and its converse, oxidation means the removal of an electron. The addition of an electron, stores energy in the reduced compound. The removal of an electron, liberates energy from the oxidized compound. Whenever one substance is reduced, another is oxidized. In biological systems, removal or addition of an electron constitutes the most frequent mechanism of oxidation-reduction reactions, frequently called redox reactions.

 

Water is an acid and a base

Water can be both an acid and a base, depending on how you look at it. Water can even react with itself to form acid and bases. It happens in really small amounts; chemists have determined the concentration of H3O+ at 25°C as being very low: only a few molecules per billion will be dissociated. Dissociation of water forms an acid that increases the concentration of hydrogen ions (hydronium H3O+ also known as hydrated H+) and a base that increases the concentration of hydroxide ions (OH-). This can be amplified by using electrolysis process to drive an otherwise non-spontaneous chemical reaction.

The degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution is measured in terms of a value known as pH, which is the negative logarithm of the concentration of hydrogen ions. Scientists have defined a pH scale which ranges from 0 on the acidic end to 14 on the alkaline end, a neutral solution being at pH 7. At pH 7 water contains equal concentrations of H+ and OH- ions. Substances with pH higher than 7 are alkaline as having a higher concentration of OH- than H+ and vice versa for acidic substance with pH lower than 7 containing a higher concentration of H+ than OH-. The pH scale is a log scale so a change of 1 pH units means a tenfold change in the concentration of hydrogen ions.

 

pH and chemistry: avoid misunderstanding

Be aware that high or low pH does not necessarily means that a product is corrosive or not. Do not mistake pH and chemistry. pH is defined by hydrogen ions. pH meter device estimates the amount of hydrogen (H3O+) passing through the glass membrane from the electrode potential value. In other words, pH meter does not directly measure hydrogen ion concentration. The number displayed by pH meter is the value converted from electrode potential to pH.

You can drink Cola which has a pH of 2-3 (weak acid) but any student having knowledge in chemistry knows well that we cannot drink any solution of a strong acid (such as hydrochloric acid) at the same pH value, which would definitely create a problem... The same for high pH. In other words, we cannot judge if a product is safe or not solely by its pH. The same for lemon which is very acidic; but turns to alkaline once ingested. Important is to look at the reaction's behavior and the reaction which is generated.

Advanced Water S-100 is the most innovative substance in the world in terms of mineralization, pH and biocompatibility: once in contact with human skin and its organic acids, pH is quickly neutralized to natural skin's pH level.
 

Did you know?

Ashes when mixed with rainwater ends up in a very high and safe pH of about 11. Wood ashes are not toxic; combined to rainwater or demineralized water, its high pH stimulates the growth of plants, as we can observe after wild fires, where new plants quickly emerge from a burned soil covered with ashes.
This is the magic of nature.

When grass and trees benefit

Wood ashes offer significant potassium, but their greatest potential benefit to lawns comes from alkalinity (high pH). Thes ashes have properties similar to lime products used to raise soil pH. For example, lawn grasses generally prefer slightly acidic soil in the 6.0 to 7.0 pH range, but high-fertilizers tend to lower soil pH over time. Many countries have naturally acidic soil. When soil pH drops below 6.0, it limits the ability of plants to take up essential nutriments, including nitrogen, phosphorus and iron. Lawn beauty, health and resilience suffer. If your soil is acidic or potassium-deficient, wood ashes can help your grass to grow.

 

 
 Advanced Water Technology

 

Ionized reduced water

Alkaline ionized water generated by water electrolysis has constantly received increasing attention due to benefits in treatment and prevention of diseases. Electrolysis of slightly salt water or tap water produces a special water very useful and known as functional electrolyzed water. Various types of functional water can be produced depending on conditions of electrolysis, and these types of water are classified into two major categories. One is functional electrolyzed acidic water, which is generated at the anode; the other one, generated at the cathode, is electrolyzed alkaline water. Both, depending on their properties, are widely used in medical, cosmetic and technical fields.

In Japan, research on functional water, especially on electrochemically reduced water (ERW) also known as electrochemically reduced alkaline water (ERAW), is developing at a rapid pace.

Studies on the functions of ERW were initiated in Japan in the 40’s and its application to agriculture was first attempted in 1954. Six years later, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan, admitted ERW as effective for human health against various diseases (external & internal) and authorized ERW producing devices as Medical Device. Korean Food & Drug Administration (KFDA) followed a few years later. Today fast accumulating evidences demonstrate how ERW can be health beneficial and active in reducing oxidative stress-related diseases.

  • Patented JP2007050400

Manufacturing process

Ionized water S-100 is made out of innovative electrolytic patented process as well as longstanding expertise and know-how. Having a pH of 12, it has about 100’000 times more negative ions than normal water (approx. pH 7). Advanced Water S-100 is stable and effective for 3-4 years. It can be diluted with water or mixed under certain conditions with other ingredients while maintaining ionic properties.

 

Advanced Water S-100 is unique

Advanced Water S-100 is an active water consisting in a unique mineralization with high reducibility and semi-permanent stability caused by molecular ions with electron rich state. These molecular ions are characterized as high pH and weak basicity according to Lewis theory. Therefore, Advanced Water S-100 is totally safe and 100% biocompatible with human skin thanks to very weak basicity and specific minerals, providing a unique optimization of cell's and tissues' ionic balance and metabolism.

Unique mechanisms of action

Basic principle: S-100 Water contains negative ions OH-. Once in contact with any kind of surface, material, particles, water ions interact by reorganizing electric charges. The surface remains polarized and actively prevents from any future building up of foreign particles, (known as "Double electric layer" theory).


 

1. The smartest Cleansing ever

Advanced Water S-100, with its army of negatively charged ions, penetrates, encapsulates all kind of particles such as atoms, molecules, micro-organisms, (...) and removes them by repulsion effect (due to same polarity) from all kind of even or uneven microscopic surfaces. Isolated particles and pollutants are easily removed by rinsing. In case of dermo-cosmetic applications, the same mechanism happens: e.g. skin cleansing where ionic work force interacts between lipids (sebum) and skin, producing a so-called repulsion force effect.

2. Antimicrobial & Preservative power

 


 

In case of surface bacterial contamination such as E-coli, the ionization process of Advanced Water S-100, depending on dilution rate, quickly polarizes and dislodges the bacteria. Bacteria outer membrane (Gram-) is dissolved by ions force, leading rapidly to the destruction of the cell nucleus, eliminating any chance of re-contamination. Gram+ type bacteria are quickly dislodged by repulsion force. In any case, Advanced Water is definitely not a biocide and not classified as a bactericide.

Advanced Water S-100 is the most innovative substance in the world in terms of mineralization, pH and biocompatibility.

 

 

Bacteria, even alkaliphilic bacteria which are comfortable with high pH, cannot survive in pH over 10.5. Bacteria growth is therefore impossible under S-100 high pH (11.5 – 12.5). When in contact with the skin and its organic acids, Advanced Water S-100 is quicly neutralized to skin's natural pH level; in any case, absolutely no negative reaction/stimulation of the skin is observed, as confirmed by several tests and analysis made by well-known European laboratories and research centers, such as:

  • Patch test 48 hours: non irritant
  • Human elbow fold test: very good skin compatibility
  • Challenge Test: A Criteria (pure) / B Criteria (diluted)
  • Cutaneous/Ocular Safety & Efficiency Assessment: Restores the cutaneous barrier, strengthens and protects the skin
  • TEWL (Transepidermal Water Loss): significant reduction
  • Cleansing against particles: anti-pollution effect
  • Eye test Het cam: slightly irritant (3)
  • Stratum corneum test: 100% safe
  • Proton mobility: very high (2700ms)

 

3. Cell's ionic balancing and cell's regeneration

Advanced Water S-100 combines both effects of its high pH and unique mineralization (Na, Si, K, P, Mg, Ca, Cl), structured through a patented electrolytic process, generating unique molecular compositions. Advanced Water not only cleans, protects and ensures stressed/damaged skin's pH balance but also plays a key role in supporting cellular's functioning and regeneration (metabolism and ionic balance).

Thanks to an adequate pH and minerals environement, cells can develop and accelerate healing process by reducing inflammation and stimulating vascularization. Combined with its anti-microbial and cleansing effects, Advanced Water S-100 offers a state of the art solution for skincare and woundcare (e.g. burn, ulcers, atopic dermatits, damaged or stressed skin)..


 

100% Safe & non toxic

Thanks to its weak basicity (equivalent to 0,04M NH4OH) Advanced Water S-100 does show respect for natural skin pH as being quicky neutralized when in contact with its natural organic acids. It easily penetrates the different skin's layers without damaging cell's membrane and cutaneous microbiote, unlike surfactants, alcohol, preservatives (...) which presence in most of today cosmetic/OTC formulas seriously denature and damage skin's tissues.

The microbiota of the skin is very important as a protective mechanism; the microorganisms that live on and in human skin and their diversity contribute in balancing the microbita, which characterizes an healthy skin.  It should be noted that dead bacteria must be evacuated in order to elminate their toxins, especially for staphylococcus. The action of Advanced Water S-100 diluted on the skin helps to cleanse and maintain an healthy microbiota.

Advanced Water is the only safe and original high pH water without any chemicals or harmful ingredients.
