Eau Kulen takes its name from the mountain which lies at 496 meters above sea level, located to the immediate north-east of the Angkor archaeological site in Cambodia. It is the site chosen by King Jayavarman II at the beginning of the 9th century to install one of the first royal capitals of the Khmer Empire. The Kulen Mountains, “lychee mountains”, are home to many treasures including basins, reservoirs, and a collection of burial temples with lush vegetation. The famous waterfalls of the site, its monumental Buddha carved from the rock at the top of the Kulen Mountains, as well as the sculpted rivers of Kbal Spean and the 1000 lingas dedicated to the god Shiva, complete this idyllic landscape.
Born at the foot of Cambodia’s most sacred mountain, Eau Kulen reflects the land from which it comes and its origin gives it the exceptional character of its identity, its quality, and its unique taste. The original purity of Eau Kulen is naturally preserved from outside pollution. Coming from an underground origin which is captured at a depth of more than 100 meters, Eau Kulen draws its source from a recognized and protected site with a low density of population and agricultural activity. The mineralization of Eau Kulen is assured by a slow filtration of rainwater through several hundred meters of sandstone.
Eau Kulen has many qualities. Its balance in minerals contributes to the proper functioning of the cells of the body, its immune system, protein synthesis, muscle and bone building, and also the fight against aging cells and demineralization.
Eau Kulen contains many useful natural minerals such as calcium, magnesium, bicarbonates, potassium, and sodium. Thanks to the balance of its mineralization, it is suitable for active people as well as for pregnant women, young children, and infants. Eau Kulen can be consumed daily by the whole family without restrictions. No minerals are present in excessive quantities.
Among the leading experts who have contributed to the success of the mineral waters Eau Kulen and La Vie is Yves Jacques, who has also been technical director of the Evian brand for many years. Yves Jacques is also Claude Jacques’s brother, a prominent historian specializing in Khmer civilization and closely involved in the plan to safeguard the 401 km2 Angkor archaeological park, a UNESCO world heritage site.
