The spring “Fonte Santa Barbara Di Lurisia” is located at the base of the Northern Western Alps in the Italian Region of Piemonte. Discovered in 1917, it was first analyzed and approved by M. Marie Curie, Nobel Prize winner for physics and chemistry. The intrinsic characteristics of this very light spring water have been enjoyed in Europe for many years, and since 1989, Lurisia has also been available in the United States. Since its discovery, Lurisia has been exclusively bottled at its source, never purified, filtered, or treated in any way.
pH: 6.6; TDS: 35mg/l
Even before the miner brought to light the spring and science could evaluate the beneficial quality of its properties, the popular observation was that “di Lurisia l’acqua ogni piaga lava” meaning that Lurisia water washed away every wound. All the people from Lurisia knew, in fact, that this water had notable, but unexplainable, skin healing powers. Firstly, they had discovered this by observing that wounds on their animals’ hooves soon healed if, during work, they crossed the Lurisia stream. Furthermore, the stone-cutters of the losa caves traditionally cured skin wounds with a greenish mineral, found in the layers of rock of the town.
