The Blue Lagoon is a wonder of the world. Its geothermal seawater flows from volcanic aquifers 2000 meters within the earth, emerging at the surface enriched with algae, silica, and minerals.
From the beginning, research & development has been one of the driving forces of what we do. Our R&D team works with some of the world's most distinguished scientists, creating a strong, professional network and building knowledge in bio-technology, dermatology and marine cosmetology.
