Located 1,100m underground at 37N65, 129E05 on the Korean Peninsula, Geumjin thermal water was formed by crustal movements in the Permian period of the Paleozoic era. It contains energy from ancient, pollution-and-stress-free natural environments and features high rare minerals contents.
T.E.N.™ EFFICACIOUS PREMIUM WATER
T.E.N.™ is the new name for the thermal water of Geumjin, and it stands for Thermal water Therapy, Eco Energy, and Natural Nourishment. Its source is located in the small town of Geumjin-ri, deep in the mountains of the Taebaek range in South Korea, known for its good water since the ancient times. Considered to have formed during the Permian period of the Palezoic era, the thermal water (34°C) arises from its source located 1,100 meters below the sea level. The water not only improves skin and hair, but also helps treating chronic health conditions, achieving a sense of overall wellness of the body. The beneficial effects of the water were first testified by local priests and nuns, and as its value spread by word of mouth, medical and scientific communities began their research with the support of the Korean government.
THE RESULT OF A TEN-YEAR RESEARCH
The research has proven that the water not only improves various skin conditions including atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, allergies, and pruritus, but also has beneficial effects on fifteen types of conditions, including cancer, endocrine disorders, kidney-related conditions, urinary diseases, diabetes, diabetic retinopathy, cardiovascular conditions, osteoporosis, rheumatoid, arthritis, and drug addiction.
T.E.N.TM is not simply “Good Water”
There is a reason to remember it as T.E.N.TM
Rich in Minerals
The mineral content of water can be measured by the TDS (Total Dissolved Solids). The TDS of the thermal water from Geumjin is 37,600mg/ℓ, as much as three hundred times higher than those of thermal waters from other regions in Korea and abroad. It is particularly rich in rare minerals.
A Golden Ratio of Calcium and Magnesium for Optimal Absorption
The rate of absorption into body and skin is another way of measuring the quality of water. The thermal water of Geumjin maintains 1.6 to 1 ratio of calcium and magnesium, ensuring an optimal absorption rate. Its calcium and magnesium content is about two hundred to three hundred times higher than those of other thermal water in Korea, and about thirty to forty times higher than those of renowned thermal waters abroad.
A High Concentration of Potassium
T.E.N. is also rich in potassium, responsible for maintaining the balance of cells and overall pH. Whereas most thermal waters in Korea contain about 1mg of potassium per 1 litre, T.E.N. contains 205mg per 1 litre.
Selenium, Vanadium, and Germanium-Rare Minerals in T.E.N.
T.E.N. contains 302ug/ℓ of selenium, a cancer-fighting, antioxidant mineral not found in most waters including deep sea water. It is difficult to find thermal water, in Korea and abroad, that contains this rare mineral. Also found in T.E.N. are germanium (known to purify blood) and vanadium (known for lowering cholesterol and blood sugar).
Recognized for its outstanding medical value, the thermal water of Geumjin was designated in 2009 as the subject for a leading industry project and a local linkage project for the region by the Korean Ministry of Knowledge Economy. Clinical trials of the water on fifteen different diseases are currently underway and already showing positive results.
A hydrotherapy program and necessary human resources are being developed with 9 billion won of government funding.

NEW ENERGY, NEW LIFE, NEW BEGINNING
T.E.N.TM is special. Its mysterious orange tint is reminiscent of red wine. It contains colloid, and it emits beneficial infrared energy. It also has rare minerals such as selenium and vanadium, often absent in other well-known thermal waters around the world. Two hundred and sixty million years ago, diastrophism isolated a body of sea water, letting it gradually absorb inorganic salts from adjacent strata. Matured by high heat and pressure, it has come down to us full of rare minerals. Its TDS (Total Dissolved Solid) is 37,600mg/ℓ, significantly higher than those of thermal waters from other regions. Its ratio of calcium to magnesium is maintained at the optimal one of 1.618 to 1 for high absorption rate, and it is alkalescent, similar to body fluids.
T.E.N.TM contains rare minerals, alongside essential minerals. Selenium and vanadium are known for their cancer-fighting, anti-oxidant properties. They also help improving the synthesis of collagen by 5 to 10 percent, ensuring the protection of skin cells from UV rays. A thorough analysis has proven that T.E.N.TM is completely devoid of harmful elements such as germs, E.coli, organic matters, sulphide and nitric acid.

T.E.N.™ IS NOT ANY WATER
The rich minerals in this premium water has beneficial effects not only on various skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, but also on fifteen types of conditions including cancer and endocrine disorders. Matured for two hundred and sixty million years in its source located 1,100 meters below the sea level, T.E.N.™ contains rare minerals that treat various diseases and improves skin cell generation. It also has an optimal ratio of calcium and magnesium for absorption.
Sodium controls body fluids, maintains the overall pH and cell membranes. Known for improving the elasticity of muscles, it reduces the size of pores.
Magnesium helps the absorption of vitamins and calcium, and it has a calming effect for the nerves. As an essential mineral for the prevention of diabetes and high blood pressure, it also alleviates troubled skin conditions.
Potassium assists potassium synthesis, maintenance of blood pressure, as well as muscle contraction and relaxation. It also maintains the pH and sodium level of cells. In addition, it encourages cell growth by effectively delivering water and nutrients into skin.
An essential component of bones, Calcium is responsible for neurotransmitter release and homeostasis. It controls osmotic pressure and pH level, relieves pain and ensures restful sleep. It also improves skin irritation and moisture retention.
Vanadium prevents cholesterol synthesis and lowers lipid metabolism and blood sugar. In addition to the beneficial effects on skin, it provides nutrients to hair, ensuring lust.
A structural component of bones, manganese is essential to human growth and development. It maintains reproductive organs and the central nervous system, and it ensures a healthy condition of the skin by removing oxygen free radicals.
Copper is responsible for generation of energy, synthesis of haemoglobin, growth of bones and connective tissues, maintenance of the central nervous system, and generation of melanin. IT also removes oxygen free radicals from skin cells while providing water and nutrients.
In addition to assisting protein synthesis, zinc improves the immune system. An essential component in cell division and differentiation, it has powerful preventative effects against skin aging.
Known for its cancer-fighting, antiviral effects, germanium purifies blood and improves calcium metabolism. It is related to the maintenance of the central nervous system and the formation of melanin. IT not only maintains moisture and provides nutrients for skin, but also prevents aging by removing oxygen free radicals.
A great anti-aging agent, selenium reinforces the body’s immune system and fights against cancers. It helps preventing angina, myocardial infarction, high blood pressure, and amyotrophy, and it also reverses the decrease in sex drive. Its antioxidant properties are about two thousand times more powerful than those of vitamin E.
Iodine generates thyroid hormone and improves overall metabolism, the immune system, lipid metabolism, as well as physical and mental activities. It prevents skin aging by providing nutrients.
