If your tap water is disinfected with chloramine (chlorine plus ammonia) instead of chlorine, use a Vita-Fresh shower filter. Chloramine is difficult to remove, however Vitamin C does the job effectively by neutralizing this hard-to-get-rid-of disinfectant. Vitamin C is also great at neutralizing chlorine. Other types of shower filters may be good for chlorine reduction but are unable to give you thorough and sustained protection from chloramine.
As water passes through the Vita-Fresh shower filter, it releases Vitamin C which neutralizes chlorine and chloramine. By converting these toxic disinfectant chemicals into harmless compounds, the Vita-Fresh shower filter protects your skin, hair, eyes and lungs from the harsh and oxidizing effects of showering in municipally treated tap water.
Environmentally friendly Vitamin C dissolves with use and is good for the environment. If your municipality has a plastics recycling program, the plastic cartridge housing can be easily recycled.
