Blackwater Extract is designed to naturally soften water (by binding high levels of calcium and magnesium), provide natural anti-bacterial properties, promote vibrant colouration and improve overall water quality. Organic Acids, Indian Almond Leaf, Catappa Leaf and Alder Cones have their beneficial components gently extracted without the use of harsh chemicals, leaving behind the plant debris among other impurities to be filtered out, giving a rich, dark extract without the addition of artificial colours or colour enhancers.
