Science Behind The Glam
HOW TO USE YOUR ALKAGLAM SPRAY?
How does it Work?
AlkaGlam is composed of different elements that work together to help revitalize your water. First, magnesium beads helps break up the clusters of H20 molecules commonly found in regular water into smaller clusters that are easier for your skin to absorb, increasing the water’s effectiveness at hydrating and moisturizing your face. Next, tourmaline, which generates a tiny electrical charge when exposed to pressure, energizes the water. Your distilled water is the acidic base for the formulation and unlocks the mineral tablet beads to release into the water. In water flirtation we use this method of using sediments to purify and re-mineralize water. Most skincare manufactures start with a similar process different powders and gels are mixed together and then water is added to create a potent formulation. We wanted the consumer to be able to do this at home to make the bottle sustainable.
What kind of water should I use?
Bottled water, we suggest distilled water that has no minerals no spring water. Most generic brands will work, distilled water, and if you have reserve osmosis water filter this water will work. Do not use tap water it will damage the beads, tap water has chlorine which can affect the mineral beads
My sprayer clogged how do I replace it ?
Alkaglam must be rinsed twice when first filling it to make sure mineral debris does not clog the sprayer and distilled water is recommended. To dissolve mineral debris on the nozzle, leave sprayer overnight in vinegar. Then run water through the sprayer. If you are still having issues please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will happily replace the sprayer if the product was purchased within the year.
What are the Benefits of pH Balance Spray?
As we age, our skin becomes more acidic in response to our lifestyle and our environment. Everything that comes in contact with our skin (products, smoking, air, water, sun, pollution) can contribute to the breaking down of the facial mantle, disrupting the skin’s ability to protect itself. Our minerals create a pH balance to make skin more radiant.
How long does it Last?
AlkaGlam Mineral spray delivers hydrogen-rich water for up to 1 year if directions are followed.
*Filtered Water: Distilled , Zero Water filter, RO water etc. are all fine. Tap water should not be used since it contains chlorine that will shorten the life of the O-Dobi Beads.
How does it Save me Money?
Other mineral mists require you to keep buying new bottles, costing an average of $448 per year depending on the brand. AlkaGlam Mineral Spray can be refilled with filtered water and used for up to a year, retailing at $55 for the year!
Will it Ruin my Makeup?
No! AlkaGlam Facial Mist acts can set & highlight your makeup, holding it in place while vitalizing the skin to make it appear more radiant and youthful. A light misting over makeup can revive color throughout the day. Use spray arm's length away. Spray on brushes and then dip into your eye shadow to bring out the colors in makeup

How do I test the mineral strips?
When you first use the ALKAGLAM rinse twice and let the beads sit for at least two minutes then pour ALKAGLAM water into a glass then let strip sit for 5 seconds and then see what level it shows on your card, if the level is 7 or higher the mineral content is high test periodically every three- six months once the pH drops to 6 it is time to purchase a new one.
We found that our latest batch of pH strips are not giving an accurate reading, please email email@example.com with your order number you must provide proof that you purchased within the year and we will ship you a pH testing drop kit
To test against water, test the strips against bottled water with out minerals. Tap water will test high due to traces of calcium found in tap water but it also has many irritable contaminants, which can be damaging to the device.
