“Beauty Bath - Silicic acid, a natural moisturizing factor”
Semi Hot Springs are popular among many people as a “beauty bath”.
The reason of its popularity is the rich amount of silicic acid, a natural ingredient that makes a beautiful skin. Silicic acid is known as a natural moisturizing factor, and it makes your skin clean and smooth.
It has been reported that a hot spring has a moisturizing factor if it contains more than 50mg of silicic acid. Our hot springs have more than 100mg of silicic acid.
