LaVie ANSWERS A DOUBLE ISSUE   

  • Provides pure, high-quality water, ideal for health and enjoyable to drink.
  • For people in developing countries, clean drinking water makes a large difference. For every unit backed, Solable, the company behind LAVIE, is committed to offering a LaVie SUN product to a NGO

LaVie is the premium solution for drinking water at home. This is good for you and good for the planet!   

Say goodbye to mediocre water – taste the difference!

Discover the pleasure of drinking pure water in a quality glass bottle with a refined design. 

Not many know, but 66% of bottled mineral water comes from the same source as tap water. The difference is that the water in the network contains chlorine to be transported to your home, and the chlorine produces by-products (as soon as it encounters, for example, organic matter), which adds taste and odor to the original water.   

Easy to use

Simply place a bottle filled with tap water in the device and the process starts automatically. Within 15 minutes, LaVie goes into standby mode and lets you know with a discrete light signal that you can consume the water immediately, but also load another bottle right away.

Make your life easier – LAVIE saves time, energy and money!   

  • Confidently drink pure, high quality water at home
  • Do not waste time going to the supermarket to buy mineral water
  • Do not carry any more water packs
  • Bottled water costs 300 times more than LAVIE
  • No need for a filter ever again and no need to change one with LAVIE

LaVie uses a patented UV-A light technology that breaks down the chlorine molecule, releasing powerful free radicals that will destroy bacteria and viruses, pesticides and traces of drugs, taste and odors. This double effect, known as "radical purification", allows both the removal of chlorine in water and its derivatives and the cleaning of what is invisible and sometimes very dangerous, such as pesticides, which can also be found in many bottled mineral waters.

LaVie purifies the water from your faucet and gives you a pure water taste, while being far more efficient than traditional methods. The treatment removes chlorine, chloramine a cancerogenic byproduct of chlorine, and greatly reduces pesticides and traces of medicine. The water quality achieved is comparable to natural water that you can buy, healthy and pure. LaVie treatment respects 100% of minerals from the input water, ideal for your health. "Some 21 mineral elements are known to be essential for humans." - World Health Organization, Report on Nutrients in Drinking Water, 2005.   

The effectiveness of LAVIE has been proven by tests in independent third-party labs.

Self-cleaning feature

The entire bottle is cleaned each treatment cycle, so you never have to worry about handling the cleaning yourself. Treated water and LaVie bottles are clean due to a safe technology. UVA rays are part of sunlight you receive everyday on your skin, not to be confused with UV-B or UV-C that are harmful for human life.

LaVie is a virtuous replacement product for plastic mineral water bottles.  

Using mineral plastic bottles on a daily basis is not environmental friendly!

Pollution of the oceans by plastic is one of the major and urgent problems of our time. Scientists warn that if we continue in this way, by 2050 there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

One third of all plastic waste ends up in nature, particularly in the oceans, where they form a "seventh continent" which is growing in alarming proportions.

Three things to know about plastic bottles that contribute significantly in generating this pollution:

  • Every year, 100 billion plastic bottles are scattered in nature
  • Life expectancy of a plastic waste in nature is between 100 and 1,000 years
  • With 700 km of transport and 20 grams of PET, 1 liter of mineral water requires 0.23 liters of petroleum and produces 1/2 kg of CO2

   

Green Object

LaVie is made from bio materials and is optimized for very long lifetime We use only high-end components with low carbon impact: borosilicate glass, natural moso bamboo and extra-long-life duration UV leds from LG innotek (50 000 hours).

Benefits of using LAVIE include the following :

  • Durable: made of thick and transparent borosilicate glass that is resistant to shocks and heat
  • Convenient design: A simple and elegant design with a bottle easy to use
  • Healthy: the bottle does not contain bisphenol A (BPA), bisphenol S (BPS), PVC or cadmium

These features are awarded by CES 2018 in the eco-design / sustainable technologies category.

Come and taste LaVie at our booth 50216 by the entrance of Eureka Park in the Sands Expo.

   

   

   

For every LaVie product sold, Solable is committed to offering a LaVie SUN product to a NGO. This is our vision for providing safe drinking water where it's needed.

For people in developing countries, clean drinking water makes a large difference. Worldwide, 1 out of 8 people (i.e. nearly 1 billion people) live without access to safe drinking water. This causes millions of deaths, mainly due to dysentery, which cannot continue.

We want to have a significant societal impact. Solable makes a strategic choice that reflects the LAVIE team‘s values. This donation is 10% of our turnover.

Our donations will be distributed by selected NGO.

We designed a product specifically for developing world areas where sun is abundant.   

LaVie SUN
LaVie SUN

LaVie SUN has the same powerful treatment of LaVie, but uses only solar energy.  

LAVIE SUN is an easy product to use, as it is simple, sustainable, autonomous and used directly by the end user.

Risks and challenges

The challenge of LaVie at this point is not very hard. The biggest difficulty was finding and patenting a process that could be simple and sustainable for everybody, and it is now done.

The second biggest challenge is to establish a real social utility and be able to help people with real needs. We are committed to working with NGO's for the purpose of achieving great operations.

We may, of course, encounter difficulties with shipping materials, homologation in some parts of the world, customs and other related matters, but we have a robust team, one that is trained to industry and international. We are confident that these eventual troubles will be managed quickly.

Design, industrial design, electronics, firmware, and assembly are entirely made in France by our local partners. This is our strategy to limit potential risks. We are sure you will enjoy a perfect user experience with this beautiful device that will permit you to stop bottled water consumption.
