About the source

"Fuji Chobo no Yu Yurari Onsen'' is a natural hot spring located in the Aokigahara Jukai, formed in the fluctuating zone at the foot of Mt. Fuji. This hot spring is made up of green tuff rock that contains hydrothermal mineral deposits created by an underwater volcano that was active approximately 15 million years ago. It is rich in minerals that have been recharged over a long period of time in a fault fracture zone 1,500 meters underground, making it an authentic fissure-type natural hot spring.

* Fissure-based natural hot springs: These are natural hot springs that gush out from cracks and cracks (fissures) in the underground bedrock. They are formed by faults and fissures in the rock caused by tectonic activity or earthquakes.

In terms of ingredients, it contains a good balance of cations such as calcium ions, magnesium ions, sodium ions, and iron ions, and anions such as sulfate ions, chloride ions, and carbonate ions. Because it has slightly alkaline properties, it is expected to act on slightly acidic skin and increase the effectiveness of hot springs by absorbing cations such as calcium, sodium, magnesium, and iron more effectively.
