Micro(μ) means one millionth(10-6), making 1 μm, one millionth of a meter. An average bubble, say, in a jacuzzi, has the width of 2mm. The diameter of human hair, on the other hand, is approximately 70 μm, which is extremely small. Microbubbles can range from 1 to 999 μm, and the size can affect the overall experience. Our Microbubble Wash System produces finer microbubbles that are around 3 to 20 μm, which is smaller than hair. Using our generator, 1cc of water contains a few hundred bubbles, varying based on the water temperature and environment.
Because the microbubbles are negatively charged, they attract and remove positively charged particles, such as dust and pet dander, and bring them up to the surface. When generated in high density, the microbubbles produce many negative ions. They also collapse in water pressure, creating shock waves. With our Microbubble Wash System, the production of ions and shockwaves happen in a constant cycle at the rate of a few hundred times per second, providing a pleasant stimulation for the skin.
The microbubbles are made of water and air, which is not enough to remove all the oil and organic waste. Although they are very effective in washing away the dust and flakes off the skin surface, they may not be able to remove all the oil and organic waste from deep inside the pores. That is why we created our special cleansing powder. This special powder softens sebum and organic debris so the microbubbles can attract and remove them easily. The powder also helps clear the oil that is clogging the pore entrance, so the bubbles go in deep to cleanse all the impurities that cause odor and skin irritation.
