Introducing Vit C Shower Unit!
The 1st shower of its kind in South Africa!
A quick reminder on the benefits of the Vit C shower:
- 3 out of 10 kids under the age of 10 suffers from eczema.
- It was a very rare skin condition 30 years ago.
- Eczema has no real cause, and no real cure. All we know is that it is allergy related.
- To get to the cause of any allergy type problem, a process of elimination is followed.
- What is the 1 most constant daily activity we all do? We shower/bath!
- Do we know what is in our shower/bath water?
- Chlorine and ammonia is much needed chemicals in municipal water to make it user friendly
- The effect of chlorine and chloramines in our water is multi fold. Amongst others, it strips the skin and hair of its natural oils thus possibly resulting in over 20% of infants and children, and 3% of adults suffering from eczema type skin conditions.
- Your skin (our largest organ) absorbs substances while showering – typically 60% of the chlorine that most people absorb daily comes from showering/bathing in chlorinated water. It is absorbed through your skin, eyes and respiratory system.
- Municipal water also contains heavy metals and VOCs (Volatile organic compounds). Other chemicals include fluoride, pesticides, fertilizers, hormones, pharmaceutical drugs, petro chemicals, dioxins, radio-active materials and micro-organisms.
- These chemicals can all induce allergies i.e. respiratory or skin/scalp related as it changes the water to a very strong alkaline which strips the natural protective barrier of skin and hair.
- Ideally all these should be filtered out, but filtering water in the showerhead is problematic, as Carbon filters, which normally are excellent chlorine removers, cannot handle the volume, pressure and heat of shower/bath water, therefor we offer the filtration process in an independent filter from the shower head.
- An added benefit of the showerhead itself, is the water saving aspect. Conventional showerheads uses between 15-20Litres of water per minute. With your Vit C showerhead you will only use 6litres per minute while showering!
- Our filter has 12 stages of filtration and do not contain Active Carbon, as heat destroys the activity of this filtering stage.
- Vitamin C dechlorinates and neutralizes up to 99.8% of free chlorine and chloramines in the water and is found in the shower head.
- With Vitamin C shower and bath, we now have the ability to neutralize these harmful substances and soften the water thereby leaving the skin and hair barriers protected, with no possibility of chemically induced allergies.
