ipotsch â€“ Smart carpet slippers from Southern Tyrol
Comprehensive tests have shown that the wool from Schnalstal Valley sheep is better than, for instance, New Zealand wool in terms of heat preservation and maintaining temperature balance. The Schnals Sheep
, a breed all of its own and a rare one indeed, is well-known internationally for the traditional sheep drive
over the main ridge of the Alps. Nowadays it is solely its wool that serves to manufacture the puristically designed ipotsch carpet slippers, which, due to their property of maintaining temperature balance, guarantee pleasantly warm feet at all times of year. This sustainable project
has already been distinguished by the South Tyrolean Marketing Company with a public choice award
Cosmetics from the purity of the glacier
The undisturbed purity of the glacier is reflected again in the GLACISSE Cosmetic Care Series
, which is characterized by precious minerals and the purest spring water from the Hochjoch Glacier
, a glacier in the Schnalstal Valley in the Ötztal Alps. Drawing upon the historic awareness of the beneficial and healing effects of the glacier, this exclusive cosmetic line making use of the active substances MICA GLACIAL® and ACQUA GLACIAL® has been developed.
