Research into the damaging effects that chlorine can have on our health has been relatively slow, but several papers published by reputable Japanese universities reveal that this potentially dangerous chemical does strip your skin of its natural oils and cause it to dry out and crack – leading to the formation of rashes and leaving you with dry and flaky skin.
Over an extended period of time, this damage may cause wrinkles and premature signs of aging, as well as exacerbating any pre-existing dermatological or allergic condition such as eczema and asthma.
There is also some evidence to suggest that chlorine absorbed through your pores can have a carcinogenic effect on the body, both in terms of introducing free radicals to your system and actively damaging your cells.
However, the main danger associated with showering in chlorinated water is not the effect it can have on our skin. The steam that you inhale while showering can contain up to 50 times the amount of chlorine found in the water itself due to the fact that chlorine and most other contaminants vaporise at a lower temperature than water. Inhalation of this water vapour is a much more harmful means of exposure, since the chlorine gas (chloroform) we inhale goes directly into our blood stream, where it can damage the throat and lungs.
The best way to remove chlorine from your shower water is with a dechlorinating shower head that uses activated carbon and special bioceramic minerals to bind-up and react with any chlorine molecules, rendering them inert and leaving you with pure, uncontaminated water.
Showering with dechlorinated water is particularly helpful for those suffering with skin problems and can also be beneficial to those wishing to maintain or improve the quality of their hair and skin. Many skin problems are aggravated by an allergic reaction to chlorine, and exposure to this chemical is also thought to have a negative impact on a number of respiratory conditions including asthma.
You can't stop chlorine from being added to the water supply, but you don't have to drink it and, thanks to the Biocera Dechlorinating Shower Head, you certainly don't have to shower in it.
Using Biocera's Dechlorinating Shower Head couldn't be simpler. Just unscrew your existing shower head and replace it with your shiny new dechlorinating one. Every time you shower, the natural bioceramic minerals will remove chlorine from your water and help nourish your skin and hair.
