Evolution of MicroSilk

It was during a family trip to Thailand that our former lead engineer first got the idea for a new kind of hydrotherapy.  Below is an excerpt of his story.

“During my trip to Thailand, to adopt my son, my family and I took an excursion to visit a national park in southern Thailand with a beautiful waterfall. Our driver for the day was from a nearby fishing village and told us interesting stories about the surrounding area.  One story was about a method the fisherman have been using to clean and scale the fish that were delivered every day to his village. He described large barrels that were pumped full of very small bubbles and how the fish would soak in these barrels. He said that it made cleaning and scaling the fish much easier. I joked with him and told him that I design and manufacture hydrotherapy baths and I do the same thing but only for people. Although we joked about what he was describing, I was very intrigued by what he told me. Later that same year, I read an article during a business trip to California about how the agricultural industry was experimenting with crop yields by oxygenating the water used to grow the crops. Again I was intrigued by this research and how it could have applications in a hydrotherapy bath. When I returned from California, I was determined to develop a bathing method that could naturally clean a person while providing elevated levels of dissolved oxygen to the skin.”

Over the course of the next few years, the Jason International engineering team researched and experimented with a lot of ideas, but the breakthrough finally came with the discovery of microbubbles and their applications in the medical and Navy research fields.  The engineering team concentrated on developing a method of producing microbubbles in a jetted bath which meant creating a completely new pumping and delivery system.  At this time they were pitching the idea of a gentle form of hydrotherapy that would clean the body without soap.  Of course, management was a bit underwhelmed with this claim.  “Soap is cheap” was a common reply in those early product development meetings. 

The Jacuzzi family is notorious for high standards, and senior leadership sent the team back to the lab (actually a curtained off portion of our headquarters where the secret magic happens) with the challenge to show how this investment would significantly improve the lives of our customers.

In the months that followed they tested (in-house and with outside experts), proved and documented the unique attributes and benefits of these microbubbles. 

  • The oxygen levels in the bath were 70% higher than that of regular tap water.
  • The bubbles would not race to the top of the bath, but remained suspended under the water, blanketing the bather with a cloud of oxygen, and giving the water a silky texture.
  • The wisps of what looked like steam coming off the top of the water were actually negative ions and the bath was producing them at “therapeutic levels”!
  • The microbubbles were imploding under the water creating energy and allowing the bath to maintain (and slowing increase) its water temperature without the help of a heater.
  • Oh yeah…and it DID actually clean the skin without the use of soaps.  The tiny microbubbles were so small and negatively charged that they could enter a pore, bond to dirt or impurities and lift them out.  The skin was now clean and moisturized without any chemicals.

Mission accomplished.  Management approved moving forward and MicroSilk debuted at the 2011 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show.  Since that day we continue to research and discover the benefits of this new hydrotherapy.  Nearly every month we receive letters, email, and thank you notes from those whom MicroSilk has helped.

What is your relaxation routine?


Do you sit in your chair after work and watch television? Do you like to read a book once your children are in bed after a long day shuttling between dance lessons and soccer practice? What about meditation? Or yoga?


There are so many ways to relax your mind, but are you really relaxing your body as well? Taking a long, hot bath can be a wonderful way to ease those small stresses in both mind and body.


So how good for you is a hot bath really? Actually it can be a great part of your wellness routine it turns out! Below I have listed a few reasons that you should pour that glass of wine, put on your favorite song, and draw a hot bath tonight.


1. Taking a bath can elevate your mood.


It's true! A study done in 2002 by the University of Wolverhampton found that a bath at the end of the day significantly improved the mood of their study's participants. Some of the factors that attributed to the elevation in mood were comfort, warmth, isolation and the position of the body.


2. Baths can help relieve Skin Conditions


There are many doctors that actually prescribe either medicated or oiled baths to help treat skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. By moisturing the skin through bathing you are also able to help wash away dead skin cells and prevent infection. Jason's MicroSilk® technology further adds to this benefit of bathing because the oxygen rich microbubbles both help to moisturize and bring oxygen into your skin lifting away impurities and leaving your skin plump and silky.


3. Taking a hot bath can help you to sleep better.


It's so difficult for many of us to get the reccomended eight hours of sleep a night that is ideal. One theory is that by taking a hot bath and raising your body temprature, your body will actually release more melatonin afterwards as your body starts to cool down. Melatonin is a sleeping hormone and the rapid cool down of your body will increase amount of melatonin your body produces and prepare you for sleep.


4. It can be good for your heart!


It is true! Taking a warm bath can help to reduce blood pressure some research shows. By reducing your blood pressure you can avoid more serious heart conditions like heart attack or stroke. By taking a hot bath you are using heat to help with blood flow and cirulation which is equivilant to a mini workout.


5. Hot baths burn calories.


Maybe not as much as more vigorous activities, but taking a hot bath and the sweat induced by it can actually help your body burn just as many calories as if you took a good walk!


There are so many things we can do to help relieve daily stress and improve our overall health. There is more to being healthy than just physical health of course, mental health is just as important. I hope you consider making bathing a part of your wellness routine!


Happy Bathing!
