Why filter shower water at all?

Depending on where you live, your shower water may:

  • full of minerals such as calcium or magnesium, which can damage your skin and hair. This water is called"hard" water.
  • be mixed with chlorine, an antibacterial poison used in drinking water treatment.
  • may be contaminated with microplastics, dirt particles and heavy metals such as iron, lead or copper from old public water pipes.
  • These problems are the second most important causes of premature skin ageing. Not using sun protection every day leads to wrinkles more quickly and causes the skin to lose its youthfulness. Hard water and chlorine can even trigger skin diseases such as neurodermatitis or psoriasis. In areas with hard water, 40% more children have atopic dermatitis.

Chlorine

Chlorine is a toxic substance that attacks the skin barrier and dries out the skin. Chlorine is absorbed by the skin surprisingly quickly:

Your "MOIST" shower actually dries out your skin and hair! 

Hard water

75% of all households suffer from hard or very hard water. In these areas, minerals can build up on your skin and hair over time, causing it to dry out, itch and become brittle. Hard water can also make it difficult to lather soap or shampoo, which can lead to incomplete cleansing.

Dirt particles, metals and microplastics

On average, public water pipes are 56 years old. Rust and dirt come out of the tap unfiltered. 95% of tap water in Germany contains microplastics, which can cause skin abrasion and damage thin and sensitive skin in the long term.

What is hard water and why is it bad for skin & hair?

Hard water is water that contains a high proportion of minerals such as calcium and magnesium. These minerals can build up on your skin and hair, making it dry, itchy and damaged. Hard water can also make it difficult to lather soap, which can lead to incomplete cleansing.

Here are some of the harmful effects of showering with hard water:

  • Dry skin: Hard water can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it feeling dry, itchy and irritated. This can be particularly problematic for people with sensitive skin.
  • Damaged hair: Hard water can make your hair feel dry, brittle and tangled. It can also make it difficult to style your hair.
  • Eye irritation: Hard water may cause eye irritation such as redness, burning and itching.
  • Limescale deposits: Hard water can lead to limescale deposits on shower heads, taps and other fittings. This can make them unsightly and difficult to clean.

If you live in an area with hard water, there are a few things you can do to protect your skin and hair:

  • Use a filter shower head: A filter can remove the minerals from hard water so that it is less harmful to your skin and hair. Vitamin C gel neutralizes hard water (lime = especially magnesium and calcium) and chlorine residues from drinking water treatment. This means no more weak hair follicles, flaky skin and flare-ups of psoriasis and eczema.
  • Use a moisturizing wash lotion: A moisturizing wash lotion can help replace the natural oils that are lost through hard water.
  • Use a clarifying shampoo: A clarifying shampoo can remove mineral deposits from hard water.

What is chlorine and why is it harmful?

Chlorine is a chemical that is added to water to kill bacteria. In some countries, such as France or Italy, chlorine is used across the board to disinfect tap water. However, chlorine can also be harmful to your health. Chlorine is a toxic substance that attacks the skin barrier and dries out the skin. Chlorine is absorbed by the skin surprisingly quickly:

Here are some of the harmful effects of showering with chlorinated water:

  • Skin irritation: Chlorine can irritate your skin, making it feel dry, itchy and red.
  • Eye irritation: Chlorine can irritate your eyes, making them feel red, itchy and watery.
  • Breathing problems: Chlorine can irritate your lungs and cause coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
  • Cancer: Some studies have shown that exposure to chlorine can increase your risk of cancer.

If you're worried about the health risks of showering with chlorinated water, there are a few things you can do:

  • Install a filter shower head: A filter shower head can remove chlorine from the water, making showering safer. See our vitamin gel filter in a chlorine solution here:
  • Use a moisturizer after showering: A moisturizer can help protect your skin from the drying effects of chlorine.
  • Wear swimming goggles when showering: Swimming goggles can help protect your eyes from the irritating effects of chlorine.

If you take these measures, you can reduce your exposure to chlorine and protect your health.

In addition to the points mentioned above, there are several other potential risks when showering with chlorinated water:

  • Reduced fertility: Some studies have shown that exposure to chlorine can reduce sperm count and fertility in men.
  • Birth defects: Exposure to chlorine is associated with an increased risk of birth defects, particularly in the brain and nervous system.
  • Impairment of the immune system: Chlorine can suppress the immune system, making it more difficult for the body to fight off infections.

If you are pregnant or have a weakened immune system, it is particularly important that you do not shower with unfiltered, chlorinated water.
