Filtration and Minerals

Volvic water is created by rainwater that seeps very slowly underground through 6 porous layers of volcanic rocks.

Mother earth’s filter gives Volvic its perfect mineral balance. The volcanic material from this volcano, over 100 meters thick, protects Volvic water and gives it its specific characteristics.

At the beginning

Volvic water begins as rain and snow that falls on an ancient, dormant volcanic park in central France. The water takes many years to filter through mineral-rich layers of rocks before it is bottled under strict supervision in a highly sanitary bottling facility after emerging from its protected source.

Free from the influence of the outside world, Volvic’s constant and specific mineral composition comes from its highly-protected geological origin.

Unique Mineral Content

The unique mineral composition of the dormant volcanic region from which Volvic originates gives the water its delicious taste and ensures its natural purity.

Mother
Earth’s Filter

At the base of the Puy de la Nugère, Volvic water is created by rainwater that seeps very slowly underground through porous layers of puzzolana and fissured lava down to the impermeable granite bed on the old valley bottom.

During this underground filtration process, Volvic water is filtered and in contact with the rocks and minerals it impregnates, it acquires its unique mineral composition. When it reaches the impervious bedrock, the water slowly flows downstream where it is captured over 90 meters deep.
