Radox - Radiates Oxygen

The indications or uses for this product as provided by the manufacturer are:
A balanced preparation which impregnates the water of the bath or hand basin with vaulable salts, and super-charges it with oxygen, forming an artificial mineral water combining the properties of the world-famous medicinal spa waters of Carlsbad, Vichy, Marienbad and similar baths. Water super-oxygenated with Radox Bath Salts is refreshing, invigorating and energizing. It has an antiseptic action, deodorizes the skin, and promotes the elimination through the pores of the skin of acid secretions from the blood, often the basic causes of many skin affectations.
