When you shower in chlorinated water without a shower filter, the pores of your skin open up and absorb the chlorinated water like a sponge, and chlorine-filled steam can enter your lungs. People can actually receive more exposure to chlorine during a shower than by drinking the same water.
Chlorinated shower water dries the skin and hair, can also causes or worsens skin irritations and rashes, can irritate eyes leaving them red, itchy and burning, and inhaling the steam can aggravate the sinuses and lungs as well. "Is a shower filter really what I need to neutralize chlorine and chloramines from my showering water?"
What kind of shower filters are there and how well do they work?
1. A carbon shower filter is the most common type of filter, it is a less expensive method of filtration because the activated carbon used inside is relatively cheap. However, a carbon filter is the least effective method in removing harmful chemicals from your water because it is affected by the heat. Once the water being filtered reaches a certain temperature, it negates the activated carbon, rendering it useless.
2. KDF filters, use equal parts copper and zinc. These metals are dissimilar and when they are pressed against each other, their imbalance creates a tiny electrical charge. The electricity is not enough to do any harm to humans, but it is large enough to affect the metals and minerals in the water as it gets pushed through the filter. When water passes through this charge, it liberates the free-roaming chlorine from the rest of the molecules in the water. The chlorine then recombines with another metal such as calcium and chloride, a water-soluble and perfectly harmless electrolyte. The downside to using a KDF filter is that they do not filter out chloramines, and they are less effective with low-pressure showers.
3. Vitamin C filters are arguably the best. It filters out an up to 99% of the chlorine found in water, while others filter out anywhere from 20-80%. Vitamin C filters also remove most chloramines and sediment. The filter uses a tube of ascorbic acid (pure Vitamin C) which interacts with the chlorine and the chloramines and neutralizes them. Showering in filtered chlorine free water has a wide range of benefits.
The Vitamin Shower Filter contains environmentally friendly, pharmaceutical natural food grade Vitamin C, making it the best and safest way to neutralize chlorine and chloramines from the tap water, and it is an ideal method to protect the sensitive skin from these harmful chemicals.
