Why filtering your drinking water is not enough — Healthy Shower Vitamin C Shower Filters provides safe water for bathing to eliminate absorption of harmful toxins through shower vapors.
Vitamin C is more than a healthy vitamin for ingestion, it is also a new breakthrough design for water filtration. While many people use water filtration systems for their drinking water, this doesn’t completely deter harmful chemicals from entering their bodies. This is because harmful chemicals still enter the bloodstream through vaporization when taking a shower or bath. But a vitamin C filtration system completely eliminates all chlorine, chloramines and other harmful chemicals before they ever come in contact with the human body.
Harmful effects of Chlorine
So just how harmful is a chlorinated shower? The average shower takes around 10 minutes, and during a 10-minute shower, the body absorbs more chlorine than the amount of chlorine ingested from drinking 10 8-ounce glasses of faucet water. Chlorine also causes a number of other problems including:
- Drying and aging effects on skin
- Dried out hair
- Harmful agitation of respiratory conditions such as asthma
- Increased risk of heart problems
- Inflammation of blemishes and Acne breakouts
- Chlorine has links to cancer
According to J Andelman, respected Professor of Water Chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh, “The steamy air of a shower contains significant amounts of a least two cancer-causing chemicals that evaporate out of water” and “A long, hot shower can be dangerous. The toxic chemicals are inhaled in high concentrations.”
There’s Chloroform in water?
By eliminating chlorine from the water using Healthy Shower, chloroform is also eliminated. According to Dr. Lance Wallace of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), “Showering is suspected as the primary cause of elevated levels of chloroform in nearly every home because of the chlorine in the water. Chloroform [a known carcinogen] levels increase up to 100 times during a ten-minute shower in residential water.”
Benefits of Vitamin C filtration
While the number one benefit has to be the healthy benefits, benefit number two is cost-efficiency. Vitamin C Shower Filters are cheaper and longer-lasting than most leading brands of water filtration systems. Other benefits include natural beauty care, safe for young children and babies, and great for pets. The Vitamin C shower filter is long-lasting as well, only needing to be replaced every 3,000 gallons.
How safe are Vitamin C Shower Filters?
In addition to all the benefits of skin moisturizing and hair conditioning, Vitamin C shower filters are completely safe for infants and young children. Vitamin C is perfect for babies’ sensitive skin and causes no irritation — it actually moisturizes and protects skin and eyes from the harmful effects of chlorine and chloramines. It also helps prevent respiratory problems caused by the inhalation of vaporized chlorine particles.
Vitamin C shower filters produce clean, healthy water for pets — it can be used for drinking, bathing and living (for aquatic animals). It helps protect pets’ skin and hair from being damaged by the harmful chemicals, as well the elimination of pet dandruff caused by chlorine.
Not only are Vitamin C shower filters fully approved by the EPA and American Public Health Association (APHA), they also exceed the new de-chlorination requirements set by the Clean Water Act. Additionally they meet all requirements for Water Sense Seal of Approval for water conservation through their proprietary Low Flow / High Pressure technology.
How does it work?
The first step is to install the showerhead, which can be hand-held or attached. The Vitamin C shower filter is installed in the handle. Once the regular tap water enters the showerhead (see photo below), it also enters the Vitamin C shower filter. The Vitamin C meets the water and eagerly gobbles up 99.9% of all chlorine, chloramines and other harmful chemicals. The result- fresh, pure water with no harmful chemical vapors absorbed by the human body.
