The Benefits of Using a Shower Filter!
Did you know that the way you shower can affect the condition of your skin? Using a shower filter not only allows you to wash in clean water, it also works to soothe sensitive skin.
I absolutely love the Waters Co Therapy Shower Filter Deluxe - With Shower Head $159. This incredible shower head removes any hidden nasties in your water including chlorine, rust and dirt! Yuck! Without using any harsh chemicals or sulphates, this shower filter cleans and clears your water, while taking care of your skin. My favourite feature? It actually contains the additional benefits of natural Sea Collagen and Vitamin C! It's a fantastic choice for anyone with sensitive or dry skin as it won't leave your body feeling dry or irritated.
So how does this shower filter work?
To filter out chemicals in your shower water such as Chlorine, the Waters Co Therapy Shower Filter Deluxe uses Vitamin C to neutralise them. As Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, it works to neutralise Chlorine which is a very strong oxidizing material. In each filter cartridge, there is around 40g of Vitamin C. The cartridge has a 10,000 litre lifespan meaning that there is around 4mg of Vitamin C in the water. Each filter cartridge also has 2g of Collagen. As the cartridge has a 10,000 litre lifespan, there is around 0.2mg of Collagen in the water.
What are the general benefits of Vitamin C?
Vitamin C not only plays a vital role in neutralising chemicals, it also has amazing skincare benefits! Filled with essential nutrients, Vitamin C is well known for it's ability to protect and soften the skin as well as encourage the production of collagen and fight free radicals.

What is Collagen?
Throughout the ageing process, our skin's Collagen levels naturally deplete. As Collagen is responsible for maintaining skin's elasticity, it's important to ensure we have enough of it! The Waters Co shower head attachment is unique in that it releases collagen through the shower head allowing it to flow directly onto the skin. It's the ultimate way to ensure your skin stays hydrated! To learn more about how to increase your skin's collagen levels, read my blog post Natural Ways To Help Boost Collagen!
How long does the filter last?
Your filter cartridge will last approximately 6 months with two people using it. Each filter has a lifespan of 10,000 litres which equates to approximately 250 x 5 minute showers. When it's time to replace your filter, you can purchase the Waters Co Therapy Shower Replacement Filters $129, which comes in a pack of 3!
