The clearest choice for younger looking skin
All household water is chlorinated and around a half of our daily chlorine exposure is from showering.
Chlorine not only harms the body when inhaled, but is also absorbed through the skin. It strips the natural protective oils from the skin and hair, causing excess dryness. So bathing and showering with a filter that removes the chemical chlorine can greatly lower its drying effects.
If a Sensitive Skincare Company shower filter is used regularly, it helps to make the skin appear younger. This is because it stops the drying effects of the chemical chlorine wreaking havoc with a sensitive skin in its tracks. Skin will appear softer and be much smoother to touch.
De-chlorinating and softening your bathing water should be a priority if you suffer from a sensitive skin or a delicate skin prone to dryness, eczema, psoriasis or any chemical sensitivities. This is because chlorine is a strong oxidant and causes damage to skin and hair, even at very low levels.
The Clear Tinted Dechlorinating Shower Filter from the Sensitive Skincare Company is a very effective way to remove the chlorine from your shower water and soften the water, to help keep your skin moisturised. Its effectiveness has been proven in clinical studies undertaken at the Department of Dermatology, Faculty of Medicine, Toyama Medical and Pharmaceutical University, Toyama, in Japan.
The filter produces micro-moleculed or softened water to help increase skin moisture retention and improve the ability of the skin to absorb skincare products. The micro-moleculed water can be more rapidly and easily absorbed by the skin. The end result is a skin that retains water moisture well, making the skin quality better.
The filter contains Kinetic Degradation Fluxion or KDF, which is a high purity, nano-granular copper and zinc alloy that removes the chlorine and bacteria, as well as heavy metals and pollution. KDF also has a long life. Calcium Sulphite is included, which reacts with the chlorine present in the water and removes the chlorine mainly through chemical reactions. The Calcium Sulphite is of extremely high purity and long lasting.
The activated carbon in the shower filter is a type of porous carbon-containing material. It is a deposit of highly developed hexa-carbon. Every gram of activated carbon has an effective surface area equivalent to a couple of basketball courts, allowing large quantities of pollutants to be trapped (referred to as adsorption). It reduces chlorine odour and can partially eliminate a few types of heavy metal. It has a strong adsorption of organic macromolecules. Activated carbon is highly effective in removing particles, pigments, and odour-causing substances in liquids. The highly developed pore structure is an excellent adsorbent.
The filter also contains a Hi-Tech Anti-Bacterial Nano Fibre, which comprises multiple layers of disinfectant fibre, each working individually, which, no matter which way the product is installed, will remain as effective at sterilisation. As tested by SGS, the fibres are effective in killing 99% of germs.
The filter is different from ordinary shower filters, which use only a single piece of separator between filtering materials - as it uses a unique steamer design that prevents the flexing of separators from water pressure, which will cause different filtering materials to be mixed together. This ensures the quality of water from the filtration process.
The filter does not use the traditional direct flow design, so this new design can fully utilise all the filtering materials in each chamber. With the traditional direct flow design, only the centre portion of the filtering material is constantly used, which lowers the utility rate and shortens the overall product life.
The filter is easy to fit; simply screw it into the showerhead and hose. The filtration chambers are clear, so you can see the filtration within the casing. It lasts for 6-12 months, dependent upon frequency of usage and the quality of the water, and lets you know when it needs replacing, as the golden media turns to a black/greenish colour.
The packaging for the filter is recyclable polystyrene, and the shower filter unit and the media within the unit are both recyclable.
The Clear Tinted Dechlorinating Shower Filter is designed specifically for people who have become sensitised to chlorinated water. It can also help those who suffer from dry, sensitive skin or skin prone to eczema, as well as those wishing to maintain healthy, moisturised skin.
