Effects

Chlorine is universally used to disinfect water, killing bacteria and other microorganisms. But once it arrives in your home, chlorine can negatively affect your family's long-term health, comfort and even personal appearance

Skin

When you shower or bathe in chlorinated water, the pores of your skin open up and absorb the chlorinated water like a sponge.

  • Dry out your skin: Chlorine strips the natural protective oils of the skin.
  • Early aging: Continued exposure to chlorine water causes the skin to elasticity and moisture.
  • Triggers Eczema: Chlorine being a bleaching agent and highly reactive, triggers eczema.
Hair

The chlorine in showering water has harsh, brittle effect on hair.

  • Hair loss.
  • Split ends.
  • Dry brittle hair.
  • Faded hair color.
  • Dandruff.
General Health

When you take a hot shower, the chlorine dissolved in the water vaporizes. A portion of these gets combined with other volatile organic compounds in the air and forms chloroform gas. Chloroform gas is a strong irritant to the lungs and also causes fatigue.

  • Increased risk of cancer.
  • Respiratory complications.
  • Higher risk of heart failure.
  • Reduced stamina due to lack of oxygen availability.
