Using a quality shower filter can transform damaging
chlorine into chloride and make shower water healthier for consumers. Chlorine is a chemical that is present in many municipal
water supplies. Every time a consumer
takes a shower with chlorine tainted water, the skin absorbs a great deal of
chlorine into the body. By itself,
chlorine is a non-soluble chemical and can cause a number of irritations to the
skin and lead to health issues.
Installing a shower filter that is designed to transform non-soluble
chlorine into soluble chloride can negate the harmful effects of the water and
reduce health risks.
When taking a shower in chlorinated water, consumers will
suffer from skin and hair damage.
Chlorine dries out the skin and reduces the ability of the skin to
absorb moisture. When the level of
moisture is decreased, the skin becomes flaky and irritating. In addition, when skin becomes overly dry it
begins to age prematurely. Chlorine causes
free radical damage to the skin, discoloring the skin and accelerating the
formation of wrinkles. Hair is also
dried out because of the chlorine. The
cumulative effect of taking showers in chlorinated water can cause serious and
lasting damage over the course of a lifetime.
