All Shower Filters found below will remove all free chlorine from your shower water. The two main differences between all models found below are the amount of gallons the filter is rated to remove free chlorine from, and the looks, ergonomics and aesthetics of the design itself. Please choose the model that suits you best… Also please see the information below the models for a quick but in-depth view as to why a shower filter is vital to your overall health.

How Chlorine is Damaging to your Hair & Skin:
Chlorine exposure while showering causes damage to hair making it weak and brittle causing continuous split-ends and breakage.
Ever Wonder why you cant seem to stop your hair from getting split-ends, why you hair is always dry, frizzy and breaking even when using those expensive shampoo’s and Conditioners? Its the Chlorine!
Your Hair is made up of Carotene and is naturally protected by oils produced in your scalp. While showering Chlorine quickly strips away these protective oils leaving your hair completely unprotected from chlorine exposure chemically damaging the Carotene of your hair. This causes excessive drying leading to split ends and breakage. Everybody wants Healthy, Shinning, Beautiful Hair. Take action and get protected today, you will notice the difference immediately. Once you shower in non-chlorinated water you will never want to go back!
Chlorine Also Makes Hair Dyes/Colors Fade Prematurely.
How? In the same way Chlorine causes your hair to split and break. Chlorine quickly breaks down the natural protective oils causing excessive drying which then prematurely breaks down the hair Dye/Color. The answer to these problems is clear, a shower filter is a must! Why settle for anything less…?
Chlorine Exposure Prematurely Ages and Damages Skin with every unprotected shower.
Because our pores are open while showing, vaporized chlorine and its byproducts like THM’s are readily absorbed through the skin. The chemical over-drying damage to skin that is caused by Chlorine exposure while showering has been shown to prematurely age our epidermis (The Skin) leading to blotchy, unhealthy looking skin and untimely wrinkles. The area’s of the body where skin is most effected is the Face, Back and Abdomen. Chlorine is also an irritant causing an imbalance of healthy bacteria on the skin, and for some, itching and the proliferation of acne if already present.
Why showering in Chlorinated Water is putting you at risk.
The problem with chlorine
Chlorination is a long established public practice of disinfecting drinking water killing pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria etc… It may be surprising to learn that 50% of daily exposure to Chlorine and its byproducts are from showering in Chlorinated water. The remaining 50% of daily exposure comes from drinking Chlorinated water.
The Problem is not just way it smells or the way it dries out your hair and skin … When chlorine combines with organic matter it forms a class of Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs) Called Trihalomethanes (THMs). THMs are a Cancer Group B carcinogens meaning that have been shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals in many peer reviewed University studies. Other peer reviewed studies conclude that hot showers are a Health Risk that can cause an elevated risk of diseases and serious illness. References Listed Bellow.
All water sources contain organic matter and virtually all City/Municipal water sources in North America chlorinate the public water supply. Therefore THM’s are present wherever chlorine is present. THM’s are an estimated 10,000 times more toxic than exposure to chlorine itself and comprise the vast majority of the toxic effects to the human body when showering in chlorinated water. Chlorinated shower water may also cause pre-existing conditions, such eczema, acne and asthma to become exacerbated.
THM’s enter Your Body While Showering in Two Main Ways …
70-90% of the Dangerous chemicals in your shower Vaporize before the water even hits the shower floor. These Chemical Vapors get inhaled in high concentrations and can go directly into your bloodstream.
As you may know, your skin is your largest Organ. In Warm/Hot Environments such as your shower the pores of your skin open, readily absorbing these chemical Vapors directly into your body and once again can go directly into your bloodstream potentially leading to a wide range of health complications.
A shower filter is of vital importance
For the health of you and your loved ones. 50% of daily Exposure to Chlorine and its By-Products are from showering. This is why Being Protected from Chlorine and its by products is of great importance. A combination of a Reverse Osmosis Systems & a Shower Filter is the best possible overall solution.
The information presented above has been derived from extensive research using many published peer reviewed studies that scientifically expose the many detrimental effects of human exposure to chlorinated drinking and shower water sources. The peer reviewed studies listed below are linked so that you can further research this very important subject and realize the true importance of being protected from exposure to Chlorine and its byproducts. Please pass on this information to friends and loved ones. Thank You.
