The secret to the healing Hungarian waters lies in the fact that, here, the crust of the earth is thinner than elsewhere. This allows the waters to absorb beneficial minerals more effectively on their way to the surface, meaning that certain springs contain a combination of minerals that have been shown to have a profoundly revitalizing effect on the skin. The Omorovicza story has many layers and evolved over a considerable period of time. Margaret and Stephen’s decision to create skincare which replicated the effects of the healing waters can be traced back to a meeting they had with the head of a Hungarian laboratory of dermatology famous for its Nobel prize winning discovery of Vitamin C.
