FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Essentia Water is supercharged ionized alkaline water that has a pH of 9.5 or higher with a clean, smooth taste.
To create our better hydrating water, Essentia uses a unique, proprietary three-step process. The process begins with purification through reverse osmosis to remove contaminants – making the water 99.9% pure – and is followed by the infusion of a proprietary mineral blend, formulated to replenish the body’s natural mix. Finally, the ionization process removes bitter-tasting acidic ions, which results in a water with a pH of 9.5 or higher with a clean, smooth taste.
To be considered alkaline water, the water must have a pH higher than 7.0.
It’s actually what we take out, not what we put in that results in Essentia’s supercharged ionized alkaline water. Most alkaline waters achieve higher pH from the source (i.e. from minerals that exist based on geographic location and result in higher pH) or from the adding of minerals in (e.g. electrolytes). Essentia achieves alkalinity through its proprietary ionization process. This process not only removes bitter-tasting acidic ions, but also raises the pH level to 9.5 or higher and results in a clean and smooth-tasting water that is quickly absorbed by the body. In a clinical study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (JISSN), Essentia was shown to rehydrate better than a leading bottled water*.
*Results of a double-blind, placebo controlled clinical study with Essentia Water vs. a leading bottled water in healthy subjects over two hours following moderate aerobic exercise.
We use local water supplies, which goes through our three-step proprietary process that transforms it into supercharged ionized alkaline water with a pH of 9.5 or higher. More information on our unique process can be found at www.essentiawater.com/water/.
Absolutely, and as a member of The Recycling Partnership (a national nonprofit), we actively encourage the recycling of our bottles. Our bottles are PET-1, which is BPA (bisphenol A) and phthalate-free and can be recycled at virtually any recycling facility in the United States.
We are exploring ways to offer our product in larger formats as well as ways to evolve our packaging. Currently, our largest bottle is 1.5L and made of PET-1 plastic, which is BPA (bisphenol A) and phthalate free and can be recycled at virtually any recycling facility in the United States.
At present and in response to what are customers are asking for, we are focused on providing the best supercharged ionized alkaline water and exploring ways to offer that product in different formats vs. exploring sparkling or flavored water at this time.
The pH level of Essentia Water is 9.5 or higher and provides the body with necessary hydration.
Unfortunately, pH strips can’t provide an accurate reading due to Essentia’s 99.9% purity level and TDS (total dissolved solids) measurement. For Essentia water to be accurately tested, a properly calibrated pH meter must be used. Watch our video – “Measuring our 9.5 pH” to learn more.

No, we do not use baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and calcium chloride to make Essentia Water alkaline. Those ingredients, as part of our proprietary mineral blend, are only added in trace amounts (.008% within a 1L bottle of Essentia) for taste and to complement the body’s natural mix. Our pH of 9.5 or higher is a result of our proprietary ionization process, which removes bitter-tasting, acidic ions and creates our supercharged ionized alkaline water.

No, Essentia Water does not contain fluoride or chlorine.
No. Heating, boiling or freezing Essentia water does not significantly change its pH.
You can drink Essentia in place of all drinking water and other beverages. The health community suggests drinking water equal to half of your body weight in ounces per day.
Anyone with a chronic illness looking to make a change to his or her diet is advised to consult a health care provider.
We recommend that you consult your health care provider before consuming any product in question while pregnant.
Due to the specific dietary needs of babies and pets, we recommend discussing the addition of Essentia to their diet with your pediatrician and/or veterinarian.
In order for us to properly investigate, we need to gather specific information about the bottle. We will need the lot code & enjoy by date (found on the neck of the bottle), size and purchase location. You can reach out to [email protected] with this information and any other questions so they can assist you as quickly as possible.
In order for us to properly investigate the water, we need to get more detailed information from you. Please contact [email protected] with the following: lot code and enjoy by date (found on the neck of the bottle), bottle size, purchase location, whether it was sealed before opening and whether you consumed anything else with the Essentia water at the time. They will look into the issue further and/or answer any additional questions.
Through our Believe+ initiative, we partner with nonprofit organization After-School All-Stars (ASAS) (https://afterschoolallstars.org/), which provides free after-school programs to help empower and support underprivileged youth. Additionally, we also have corporate charitable giving, which is directed to the American Red Cross for disaster relief annually. For more information, please reach out to [email protected].
As a member of The Recycling Partnership (a national nonprofit), we are fully committed to recycling and encourage our customers to do so with their Essentia Water bottles, which are PET-1 plastic – BPA (bisphenol A) and phthalate-free – and can be recycled at virtually any recycling facility in the United States.
As of now, Essentia is available in the U.S. However, we have been studying the international market for a potential, incremental expansion at the right time.
Pricing may differ as individual retailers establish their own pricing.
Unfortunately, we do not sell the sports cap bottle tops. They are available only on the 700-milliliter bottle, but they do fit all of our bottles.
We currently have branded stickers and coupons that we would be happy to mail to you. At this point, we aren’t selling any Essentia Water-branded apparel or wearables right now, but are looking into the possibility. In the meantime, we often host giveaways on our social channels, so keep your eyes peeled!
