Hungary's Healing Waters

Healing spa waters at the Racz

Hungary’s mineral-rich thermal waters have been prized for centuries.

the unique combination of minerals in these waters have remarkable anti-aging benefits

Here the earth’s crust is thinner, so waters gather more beneficial minerals as they journey to the surface. This, combined with an unusually high number of natural springs, has earned its capital Budapest the title of ‘International Spa City’.

In the 1800’s, the Omorovicza family took the first steps towards its future destiny by building the beautiful Racz Spa in Budapest, on the site of a medieval healing spring renowned for the curative properties of its water.

Some two hundred years later, descendant Stephen de Heinrich de Omorovicza and his future wife Margaret met in beautiful Budapest, where they indulged in the city’s famous thermal baths.

Hydro Mineral Transference


Although much is understood about the beneficial effects of thermal waters on bathers, harnessing the minerals in these waters into a skincare range presents a significant challenge.

scientific research

To stimulate the skin to heal and repair itself, minerals need to be absorbed by the deeper layers of the skin - but this first requires transforming them into a state that the body readily recognizes and absorbs.

Working with a Hungarian Nobel prize-winning laboratory, Omorovicza Cosmetics developed Hydro Mineral Transference™, a delivery system, to enable the absorption of minerals from the healing waters of Budapest by the epidermis for firmer, suppler and younger-looking skin.

thermal waters

Based on the ancient science of bio-fermentation, Hydro Mineral Transference™ captures minerals in their original form, reconfigures their molecular structure into a state that the body recognises, then delivers them to the deepest levels of the skin where they will have the greatest effect.

The results are nothing short of spectacular.

At first touch, skin is soothed, moisturized and visibly rejuvenated. Over time, collagen and elastin production is boosted and vital moisture is locked in. Surface damage is repaired and skin is strengthened.
