Deionized water is water that has had almost all of its mineral ions removed. Deionization is a process that uses specially manufactured ion-exchange resins, which exchange hydrogen and hydroxide ions for dissolved minerals, and then recombine to form water. Because most non-particulate water impurities are dissolved salts, deionization produces a high purity water that is generally similar to distilled water. It is ideal for cosmetic formulations, but is not suitable for drinking.
