Most cities treat water with a cocktail of chemicals including chloramines (a combination of chlorine and ammonia) instead of chlorine alone. Chloramines are now commonly used in place of chlorine for disinfection, but chloramines are not easily removed from your water. Conventional shower filters will only remove a small amount of chloramines from you water. Most shower filters available today only remove about 20 - 50% of free chlorine (chlorine that has not been combined with other constituents in water). The other chemicals found in water is fluoride, pesticides, fertilizers, heavy metals, petro chemicals, dioxins, radio-active materials and micro-organisms. The only way to remove chloramines successfully is to use a Vit C based shower filter.
Benefits of Vitamin C:
We all know that we need Vitamin C on a daily basis, but do we know all the usages and benefits?
• Vitamin C dechlorinates and neutralizes up to 99.8% of free chlorine and chloromines in the water.
• Growth develop and repair of all body tissues
• Formation of collagen
• Absorbsion of iron
• Boosts immune system
• Wound healing
• Maintanence of cartilage, bones and teeth
Why filter your shower water?
Your skin (our largest organ) absorbs substances while showering – typically 60% of the chlorine that most people absorb daily comes from showering/bathing in chlorinated water.
It is absorbed through your skin, eyes and respiratory system.
Municipal water also contains heavy metals and VOCs (Volatile organic compounds).
Ideally all these should be filtered out, but filtering water in the showerhead is problematic, as Carbon filters, which normally are excellent chlorine removers, cannot handle the volume, pressure and heat of shower/bath water, therefor we offer the filtration process in an independent filter from the shower head.
The filter do not contain Active Carbon, as heat destroys the activity of this filtering stage.
The effect of chlorine and chloromines in our water is multi fold. Amongst others, it strips the skin and hair of its natural oils thus possibly resulting in over 20% of infants and children, and 3% of adults suffer from eczema type skin conditions.
With Vitamin C shower and bath, we now have the ability to neutralize these harmful substances and soften the water thereby leaving the skin and hair barriers protected.
Isn’t the 1st step in eczema type skin disorders (dry, itchy, scaly skin) to look at the cause (your water quality) instead of finding a topical solution?
Universal Our filter stages include: 12 stage filter cartridge including different ceramic balls and sediment filters/stainless steel mesh which acts as the physical filters, while a lemon aroma block is added for luxury and sensory stimulation. (Vit C has no odour)
It removes free chlorine plus chloramines (combined chlorine), sediment, hydrogen sulphide and iron oxide.
12cm in diameter Vitamin C is added to our shower head as a filter, in conjunction with Polypropylene cotton filter and sediment filter.
Vit C is very effective in neutralizing chemicals such as chlorine, chloramines, impurities, sediments and odours from water.
The Vit C showerhead is simple in design with 2 spray patterns.
Ceramic balls containing Vit C (ascorbic acid) are found within the showerhead. Water comes in contact with the Vit C which neutralises 99.8% of the chlorine and chloramines in the water.
How long does it last?
Both the filter cartridge and aroma block last for up to 12 - 14 months months (10 000litres) depending on water quality and usage. Both the filter and shower head has replaceable cartridges.
Material: Aluminium, premium chrome finish
12 stage filter explained:
1. Sand filter washer – captures large sediments such as sand, grit and lime scale
2. Ultra fine stainless steel mesh prevents medium size sediments from entering your water filter and shower head
3. Micro-porous PP cotton removes small sediments and dust
4. Calcium Sulfite effectively removes all chlorine from both hot and cold water
5. Alkaline ceramic balls changes the pH of the water to alkaline which helps the body to detoxify easier as alkaline water is a powerful anti-oxidant. It also has rejuvenating effects on the skin by having stronger hydration properties.
6. Maifan stone is a composition of silicate minerals including micro-nutrients such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper and selenium, all essential to enhance the micro-nutrient density in the water.
7. Tourmaline Negative ion ceramic balls boosts filtration by releasing trace elements and revitalizing minerals. It also inhibits microbe breeding and oxygenates the water.
8. Magnetic energy ceramic balls energize water with oxygen by changing the water molecule to carry more oxygen, it is easier to penetrate the skin and activate certain enzyme activities to promote and nourish healthy skin and hair. It also kills bacteria and other pathogens in the water.
9. Dechlorinated ceramic balls a heat resistant compound that removes residual chlorine compounds, free residual chlorine, hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite ions. Inhibits growth of bacteria and fungi, adjusts pH of water and improve content of dissolved oxygen.
10. Lemon block adds to sensory and luxury stimulation while protecting sensitive skin, provides anti-oxidation and maintain skin vitality, elasticity and hydration.
11. Stainless steel mesh prevents sediments to enter your filter and shower head
12. Micro-porous PP cotton removes small sediments, dust and rust
2 stage Vit C Showerhead explained:
1. Micro-porous PP cotton prevents small sediments, dust and rust to enter your shower head
2. Vitamin C ceramic balls releases Vitamin C into the water to neutralise all chemical compounds, softening the water and absorbing unwanted odours. It is a water soluble antioxidant and heat resistant thereby effectively promotes full body wellness and vitality.

It has been used in EPA and APHA methods for the dechlorinating of lab samples. In the medical industry, it is the standard for critical applications such as dialysis, where the introduction of chlorinated water or toxic chemicals would be catastrophic. Chlorine is turned into harmless chloride salts.
