The water is availed from a naturally alkaline pure source and comes with the eco-conscious packaging. It is sourced from a unique pristine aquifer in the southwest of Hilo located in Big Island of Hawaii. Since it is filtered through Mauna Loa volcano, it shows a perfect pH and mineral composition. It is rich in potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium and contains an ideal quantity of silica at 30 mg. Since the water has a pH range between 7.8 and 8.8, it becomes naturally alkaline and avoids the health risks of drinking artificially alkaline water.

The packing is made from polyethylene terephthalate, and that can be completely recycled. The entire process including making the bottles are environment-friendly as the brand is very much committed to reducing carbon emission.
