What makes vitamin C such a hair & skincare superhero?
Firstly, it’s a brilliant antioxidant, meaning it can neutralise the free radicals created in the skin as a result of exposure to factors including UV rays and pollution. By banishing these harmful particles, vitamin C has the power to brighten a dull complexion, increase collagen production and minimise any long-term skin damage. What’s more, studies have shown vitamin C to heighten the skin’s ability to heal itself – very clever stuff.
Why is Vitamin C is essential for dechlorination?
Today, there so many types of filtered shower heads available that it can be quite overwhelming knowing which one to choose! The majority of shower heads on the market use a technology called KDF (Kinetic Degradation Fluxion) or Activated Charcoal (AC) to filter out the chlorine. While these are effective in dechlorinating the water they do not have the same proven benefits that Vitamin C shower heads have.
All the reasons Vitamin C shower heads are the way to go..!
✔ Vitamin C completely neutralizes chlorine & chloramines instantly
KDF/AC filters have only been proven to remove chlorine under carefully controlled laboratory conditions. KDF has never been proven to remove or even reduce heavy metals, VOCs, THMs, bacteria or any other synthetic chemicals when used within shower filtration device.
✔ The aidic goodness in Vitamin C discourages the growth of bacteria
Activated carbon filters have been known to promote bacterial growth in a shower filter creating additional health concerns over time.
✔ Whether you like your showers steamy hot or refreshingly cold, Vitamin C shower filters are effective in filtering chlorine & chloramine with all water temperatures
KDF filters are only intended to work with hot water while carbon filters are only intended to work with cold water & degrade very quickly in fast moving hot water
✔ Vitaclean’s Vitamin C shower filters create a spa-like mist with strong water pressure which remains constant over the lifetime of the filter
Carbon filters can tend to clog up quickly reducing the overall flow of water during your shower meaning you to need to replace the filter cartridge more often.
✔ Vitamin C is completely natural and is safe for the entire family. There are no known adverse side effects associated with Vitamin C dechlorination
KDF is a metal alloy consisting of copper & zinc which can be released into your shower water and be absorbed by your skin or inhaled into your lungs. The effects of this on the human body are as of yet unknown. High levels of copper, not chlorine, in water has been found to be responsible for “green hair” or “swimmers hair” in some people.
✔ Vitamin C shower filters require no complicated backwashing procedure. They’ll perform at optimum levels right up until it needs to be replaced
Many KDF shower filters require routine backwashing maintenance to flush out impurities. This wastes several gallons of unusable hot water during each backwash cycle
✔ It only takes one shower to know a Vitamin C shower filter is working (the delicious aroma is a clear giveaway!)
KDF filters take up to a week or more to produce any noticeable results. Any improvements are directly related to the reduction of free chlorine.
