Michelle Vidal graduated from UCLA and began working at her father’s water filtration company. For years, she struggled with severe acne. After consulting with multiple dermatologists, none of the treatments were working. She began researching the healing waters of Lourdes, France. According to scientists, they found that " The Lourdes water was found to have a higher concentration of activated hydrogen than regular water, which may be responsible for restoring health to cells damaged by oxidation.” Reluctant but curious, she washed her face every night with hydrogen water and healing crystals. After a month, the acne started to disappear, thus, triggering her curiosity of crystals and natural healing methods.
She collaborated with her father on a small filter, that attached to the sink, that contained minerals that replicated the mineral properties of the waters of Lourdes, France. The feedback was amazing, and pushed the company into moving on to bigger ideas, with a smaller product in mind.
One day, She was using a facial mist that contained mineral properties, but when she tested it, the mineral properties had depleted. That is when the eureka moment hit. Inspired by French and Japanese healing methods which used hydrogen to combat UV skin cell damage, She combined her love for beauty and her interest in crystals in their natural form, into a product that has a natural process of creating hydrogen in the bottle that you can take on the go and that cannot deplete.
Thus, the Alkaglam was born. A product that helps women look and feel their best with a few simple sprays. She collaborated with her family on the project combining different minerals to create a fantastic mineral spray that helps better your skin and highlight makeup! This setting spray has become a favorite among makeup artists because it saves them money! If they run out spray for their clients, they just fill it up with filtered water, which creates a beautiful, dewy look.
