The beneficial effects of the Blue Lagoon
In 1976, the Svartsengi geothermal power plant opened, a pioneer of its kind. A warm blue reservoir formed in its shadow and within five years, local residents began bathing in the waters of the lagoon. They reported great beneficial effect on their skin after bathing, especially people with skin conditions, such as psoriasis, experimented relief in their symptoms and significant comfort to their sensitive dry skin. Their revitalized skin sensations and the great wellness of body and mind soon aroused interest of the scientists about these unexplored properties of the water.
In 1992, the Blue Lagoon company began its path to explore this mystical blue water, to research the beneficial effects of the water and its primary elements - silica, microalgae, and minerals.
How to bring the beneficial properties of the water to people?
The mission of scientists and researchers was to discover the secrets hidden in such a unique composition of the water, to understand its effectiveness on the skin. The desire of improving people's quality of life and researching the healing water was the basis of all studies. In 1994, clinical studies confirmed the healing properties of the Blue Lagoon geothermal seawater – which today we refer to it as the Blue Lagoon bioactive water due to its established bioactive properties. Same year, the Blue Lagoon company opened a Medical Clinic to welcome people with psoriasis to a natural psoriasis treatment. At that time, the guests at the Blue Lagoon Medical Clinic soon showed interest in following the treatment at home. This interest sparked the product development of Blue Lagoon dermatological treatment products - a dedicated line of products for dry, sensitive skin.
Today, the Blue Lagoon offers a range of skincare products truly close to the needs of the skin. Visitors to the Blue Lagoon can enjoy these skincare products in the Blue Lagoon Spa or purchase them in the flagship store.
The entire range of products is also available in the Blue Lagoon online store, to easily reach users all over the world.
