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, alkaline water, is generated at the cathode. 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.
Advanced Water S-100
ADWATIS SA provides a new generation of ionized water, totally different from all other traditional alkaline ones, called Advanced Water:
- Unequalled, 100% safe and non-chemical ionized mineralized water.
- Unique properties due to mineralization combined with high pH and very low basicity.
- Patented JP2007050400
Ionized and mineralized 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 with other ingredients under certain conditions 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.
This means that pH of Advanced Water S-100 is not defined by the concentration of hydrogen ions or hydroxide ions but by electrons according to Lewis' theory. Therefore, Advanced Water S-100 is totally safe and 100% biocompatible with human skin, providing a unique optimization of cell's and tissues' ionic balance and metabolism.
Advanced Water S-100
Standard alkaline waters
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 system 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 bactéria are quikly 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 water 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 quickly 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 the skin
- Skin protection
- 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 cells' 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).
Thanks to ist 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 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 microbiota, which characterizes an healthy skin. It should be noted that dead bacteria must be evacuated in order to eliminate 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.
