Treat & Prevent Eczema & Other Skin Disorders 

Skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis, and chronic dryness are all heavily affected by the moisture content of the skin. 

Showering and bathing in chlorinated tap water robs skin and hair of their natural protective oils, causing scaling and itching. Chlorine is a strong oxidant that causes damage to skin and hair even at very low levels. Most tap water maintains a residual chlorine level greater than is recommended for swimming pools, 1.5 ppm. 

Chlorine also kills much of the beneficial bacteria on the surface of the skin that offer a natural defense against skin disorders. 

By reducing chlorine in our showering water, where most of the exposure to chlorine occurs, and keeping our bodies hydrated properly, we allow our body's natural healing mechanisms to work properly. In many cases, shower filtration can help prevent and cure skin disorders. As is the case with most health problems, prevention is always more effective than treatment.
