WHERE IS 16 BORN?

16 was discovered on Jeju, a very special volcanic island off the coast of South Korea. What makes this island so unique is Mt. Halla, an active volcano near the center of the landmass. Here, rainwater is naturally funneled into the heart of the mountain where 16 begins its journey.

WHAT IS 16?

16 starts in the clouds, but where it ends up is what makes it truly special. As rainwater collects in a mineral-rich caldera on Mt. Halla, it begins to pass through sixteen layers of porous volcanic bedrock, naturally purifying 16.

FILTRATION AND FORTIFICATION

Scoria

The first significant advantage to 16 is the material it’s filtered through. Scoria is a basaltic volcanic rock, seemingly designed for the filtration of water. Its mineral composition naturally helps fight bacteria.

MINERAL ENRICHMENT

The benefits of the bedrock within Mt. Halla go beyond just filtration. This mineral-rich bedrock fortifies 16 with four essential minerals: calcium, potassium, magnesium and vanadium, which helps to fight disease.

16 LAYERS OF BEDROCK

Beyond simply being a natural purifier, the bedrock in Mt. Halla is also unique in its quantity. In all, 16 travels through 1,400 feet of purifying, mineral-rich bedrock, resulting in an 18-year purification process.

BENEFITS OF 16

The benefits and uniqueness of volcanic water go beyond great taste and purity. Jeju Island and Mt. Halla have been designated by the United Nations as a World Natural Heritage site.

Passing through sixteen layers of volcanic bedrock, 16 is naturally purified without stripping away essential minerals. By letting nature do the work, we end up with a mineral-rich water that has not been processed or synthetically enhanced.

The unique filtration process of 16 allows for the best of both worlds—softer, but crisp and refreshing water, containing the minerals your body needs. Only volcanic bedrock water can provide this perfect balance.

The 1,400 feet of mineral deposits within Mt. Halla create the perfect environment for purification and fortification. Very few places on earth have the ability to produce a naturally purified water with the mineral enrichment nature intended.
