What is D2O? Snohomish Hydration Spray

July 7, 2011  

Heavy Water“Heavy Water”, also known as

  • D2O
  • Deuterium Oxide
  • Chiral Water
  • Asymmetric Water
  • Optically Active Water
  • Living Water

is available in water (H2O) from natural sources in very limited concentrations (0.015%). Enriched or concentrated through either evaporation, distillation or a combination of both methods, has a molecular weight that is about 10% heavier than H2O (20 vs. 18). Deuterium is actually a ‘heavy’ isotope of hydrogen, is about 2 x the weight of hydrogen.

How is Heavy Water Used?

Heavy water is used in:

  • Nuclear Reactors & Thermonuclear Weapons — helps shield radiation; because boiling point is higher than H2O, it is a more efficient coolant
  • Medical Diagnostics — improves radiological imaging
  • Cancer Treatment — shields healthy tissues and organs while ‘steering’ radiation into the tumor

Why is D2O better than H2O for Hydration?

Because heavy water (D2O) evaporates more slowly than H2O, it is superior for use in hydration sprays. Jane Iredale’s Snohomish Hydration Spray uses D2O in combination with:

  • Ylang Ylant Extract — balances sebum excretions and provides a pleasant scent
  • Seaweed Extracts — helps regulate pH of the skin’s surface and reduces sebaceous hyper-secretions.
  • Chamomile Extracts — aids in reduction of inflammation
  • Myrrh Extracts — used for hydrating aging, rough or chapped skin
  • Sodium PCA — present naturally in the skin, binds moisture to skin cells
  • Radish Root Extracts — acts as a natural moisturizer
  • Corallina Officinalis Extracts — seaweed (algae); aids in firming the skin
  • Olive Leaf Extract — helps heal acne/pimples; anti-inflammatory
  • Rosemary Leaf Extracts — natural antioxidant & anti-inflammatory; natural preservative
  • Grape Leaf Extracts — protects collagen and elastin in skin to help reduce aging

Why is D2O Called ‘Life Water’?

Chiral, as defined by dictionary.com:

chir-al /”kirel/ (adjective): Asymmetric in such a way that the structure and its mirror image are not superimposable.

Our hands are a perfect example of chirality. Carbon based compounds (amino acids in proteins and sugars in RNA & DNA) are asymmetric. D2O is also a chiral compound. For this reason, physicists suspect that D2O is the original chiral event  — created at the beginning of the Universe.

The presence of D2O encourages the formation of chiral molecules, therefore:

Universe – Chirality = No Life
