Watchdog warns public over ‘hot spring’ powders

“Since children have less resistance to disease, parents should be more careful,” Wu said.

Wu said that since most hot spring water in the country is at high temperature and under strict control, it is extremely difficult to acquire thermal water and have it processed into powders.

“Domestic manufacturers who claim their hot spring bath powders are extracted from hot spring water may actually use ‘second-hand thermal spring water’ in which people have bathed,” Wu said.
