Eau Kulen takes its name from the iconic Kulen mountains which lie 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. Its natural mineral balance and its origin give birth to 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 unique mineralization of Eau Kulen is ensured by a slow filtration of rainwater through several hundred meters of sandstone.
The 40 hectares of protected area around the source (Eau Kulen’s land), as well as the reforestation program initiated in 2018 over several hundred hectares from the top to the foot of the Kulen mountains also reinforce the source against any form of external pollution.
Eau Kulen natural mineral water has many advantages. Its balance of essential minerals contributes in particular to the proper functioning of the body's cells, its immunization, protein synthesis, muscle and bone building, as well as the fight against cell aging. In a country like Cambodia characterized by high temperatures, Eau Kulen also fulfills a vital objective: that of preventing the demineralization of the body.
Kulen Water naturally contains many useful minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Thanks to its balanced mineralization suitable for the whole family (active people, pregnant women, young children, and the elderly), Eau Kulen can be consumed daily. No minerals (fluoride, sodium, …) are indeed present in excessive quantity. Kulen Water is also rich in silica (94 mg / l), a mineral considered as early as 1857 by Louis Pasteur "as being called to revolutionize our therapeutic approach". In particular, silica helps to eliminate the toxic aluminum by facilitating its excretion from the human body. Mineral waters rich in silica could also help to limit the risk of neurodegenerative diseases (such as Autism, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, etc.), participate in the consolidation of the bone structure and reduce tendencies to osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
Many leading international experts have contributed to the success of the mineral water Eau Kulen in the Kingdom of Cambodia and also La Vie in Vietnam. Among them is Yves Jacques, a former technical director of the Evian brand for many years. Yves Jacques is also Claude Jacques’s brother, a prominent historian specializing in the Khmer civilization and closely involved in the plan to safeguard the 401 km2 of Angkor archaeological park, a UNESCO world heritage site.
