In anti-aging research, shungite is sometimes dubbed an effective "fountain of youth." The hollow spherical carbon type fullerene is still very little researched, but is said to have a positive influence on the aging process of the skin.1.

Besides absorption and catalytic properties, shungite also has bactericidal characteristics.2. The number of microbes in water filtered with shungite can be up to twelve times smaller than conventionally filtered water, reducing turbidity and foreign odors. Try water made from the primary rock shungite!

The properties of shungite are based on the experience of many users and the effect is still largely unexplored.

free radical binding

Due to its molecular structure, shungite is said to be able to absorb and bind free radicals, which are partly responsible for the aging process of the skin.1

Adsorptive, catalytic and bactericidal

Studies by Krutous and Rysev, Khadartsev3 attribute high adsorptive, catalytic and bactericidal activity to shungite.

Tested quality from Karelia, Russia
