Each drop of evian® Natural Mineral Water starts off as rain or snow high up on the pristine peaks of the French Alps, traveling through a vast mineral aquifer deep within the mountains before emerging at last at the spring in Evian-Les-Bains. This amazing journey is the secret to evian®’s purity and it takes over 15 years. On its 15-year journey through an ancient glacial filter deep in the heart of the French Alps, evian® Natural Mineral Water slowly but surely acquires a unique mineral balance. Its low sodium content and balanced mineral composition make it particularly well suited for mothers and babies. Bottled right at the source, evian® remains completely untouched by man throughout the process, so you can enjoy its naturally pure and refreshing taste anywhere, any time. In 1878, the French Medical Academy officially recognized evian® Natural Mineral Water’s favorable effects on human health.
