Enjoy a safe chlorine free shower!
All household water is chlorinated. Chlorine and chloramine is a bleaching agent which bonds with and destroys the proteins in hair and skin. Hair can become dry, and sensitive skin can become itchy and irritated. Filtering both drinking and bathing water should be a priority if you suffer from skin disorders or chemical sensitivities. Now that most water authorities are switching to chloramines as disinfectants, we should understand the risks. Chloramines are all respiratory irritants with trichloramine being the most toxic (order of toxicity: monochloramine < dichloramine < trichloramine-most severe.) . There are also the concerns of Trihalomethanes (THMs); they are disinfection byproducts that are formed when organic matter in the water combines with chlorine. THMs are possible but not proven cancer causing byproducts.
Enjoy a safe chlorine free shower, decrease stinging and burning eyes, reduce respiratory problems, lower the risk of disease, enjoy smoother softer skin, and reduce skin rashes, with less sinus irritation and healthier hair.

The chlorine and chloramine in our shower water condenses much quicker than water does. When we luxuriate in that relaxing, steamy shower, we are being inundated with chlorine gas, chloramines and possibly even Trihalomethanes. In the case of our skin, that steamy water is opening our pores and allowing the vaporised chlorine and its byproducts, now in a much more concentrated form, to enter our bodies through the open pores, and do its damage.
Damage to the skin includes:
- patchy dryness
- and an imbalance of natural, healthy bacteria on the skin
