FURO[DISCOVER YOUR NATURE

The Japanese word, "FURO" does not simply signify a bath for body cleansing, but a place to soak in warm water to revive your body and soul. FURO expresses a concept of returning to your own natural self by immersing in a never experienced sensation of creamy fine foam of water. It is a proposal of a new style of bathing experience in a tub full of foamy bubbles over half filled hot water realized by the technologies of INAX. The innovative and unique quality of the froth bubble baths will add enhancement to life at home.
The froth bath requires minimum of hot water but allows you a relaxing soak. Use of less water is also gentle to your body as you feel less pressure strain. Bubbles not only keep the temperature of the hot water but also retain the steam avoiding dispersion so that the bathtub could even be placed in a living room.

On Froth Technology

On Froth Technology The froth is generated by mixing air with hot water containing special foaming agent made of substance safe enough to be used in food or cosmetic products through the foaming device. The bubble is delicate as a hundred to a few hundred microns in diameter and very creamy to the touch compared to the conventional bubble bath products.
