Mineral water

Shayan healing mineral water is used for therapy in Karpatia.

Shayan resort is famous for its ecological safety, while volcanoc rocks of local mountains serve as an ideal water filter. That is why Shayan initially clean waters have unique healing properties and are being used since 1876.

Carbonic low-mineral siliceous hydrocarbon sodium water types named Shayan-4 and Shayan-242 are similar to the most popular Vichy Celestins and Borzhomi water by their composition. The uniqueness of their chemical composition is in combination of hydrocarbonates and silicic acid.

Special mineral water supply system allows to eliminate its contact with air and permanent warming, thus, this water is not oxidated and fully preserves its healing properties.
