Is Your Shower Toxic?

We all love a great shower, that feeling of washing off dead skin cells, sweat and maybe even the effects of a bad day.

But what if your shower is giving you a dose of unhealthy chemicals that can cause adverse health effects?  Those great shower feelings just got dashed.

If you’re showering with chlorinated tap water, you’re absorbing chlorine through the skin.  In a 10-minute shower, the body absorbs as much chlorine as drinking half a gallon of chlorinated tap water!!

Some of the health issues which can show up as a result of showering in chlorinated tap water are:

  • itching
  • dry and flaky skin
  • rashes
  • dandruff

You’re also breathing chlorine gas which is created when the hot water combines with the chlorine.  Some respiratory complaints such as coughing, asthma, bronchitis and sinus troubles can be tied to chlorine inhalation.  This short video sums it all up!

What can you do to get this nasty chemical out of your shower water?

There’s an easy solution: install a Multipure Aquashower.  This dechlorinator filter converts the chlorine to zinc chloride which is not absorbed by the body and is harmless to both body and environment.

Once you start using the Aquashower, you can fully enjoy those yummy showers again, knowing that they’re also healthier for you.  Your skin, hair and the rest of your body will thank you.
