About Icelandic Glacial Natural Spring Water
Icelandic Glacial is the super-premium natural spring water from Iceland, home to glaciers, spouting geysers, volcanoes and raging rivers, Iceland is one of the world’s cleanest ecosystems. Icelandic Glacial is bottled at the source from Iceland’s legendary Ölfus Spring, which was formed more than 5,000 years ago and is shielded from pollution by an impenetrable barrier of lava rock. The Spring produces water so pure that nothing is added or taken away. As a result, Icelandic Glacial possesses exceptional balance featuring a naturally low mineral content and a naturally high alkaline pH level of 8.4.
The Ölfus Spring is constantly replenished by rain, snow and ice-melt from the nearby mountains. As such, it has been deemed certifiably sustainable by Zenith International, Europe’s leading beverage consultancy. Icelandic Glacial is further distinguished as the world’s first certified carbon neutral natural spring bottled water for product and operation. Icelandic Glacial uses 100% natural green energy to fuel production delivering a premium bottled water to discerning consumers around the world while maintaining a “net zero” carbon footprint.
As a testament to its exceptional purity, Icelandic Glacial has been selected by Christian Dior as the exclusive hydration agent in the Diorsnow line of skin care products. Icelandic Glacial is distributed in the United States by Anheuser-Busch.
