NIANCE – The Pinnacle of Skin Rejuvenation


Swiss Alpine Glacier Water

Sourced from the famous Matterhorn glaciers in the Zermatt area of Switzerland, this highly pure water is further enriched with minerals and elements that provide ample benefits for use on the skin. It provides the most direct nutritional supplements to the cells to give a radical improvement in skin texture for tender and beautiful looking skin.

Swiss Glacier water is not only pure but also refreshing with an excellent taste.” Zermatt water is also very soft because it primarily flows through crystalline rock such as gneiss and granite and thus does not pick up minerals, however contains calcium and sulphate because of the rock. Containing virtually no nitrate as the mountain slopes are little used for agriculture the microbe values lie far below the Swiss average and also far below the legal tolerance value.

Hidden in a deep valley in between the most impressive mountains Zermatt is dominated by a huge pyramidal rock, the world famous Matterhorn. Crystal clear, pure air and a heavenly quietness are found in this scenic place. From the famous mountain region comes the purest Zermatt Glacier Water preserved untouched for centuries and now one of the core elements in all Niance products.
