What happens to your face when you wash it with tap water?


Did you know your skin is your largest organ and absorbs an average of 64% of total contaminant dosage? 

Chlorine and chloramine (chlorine + ammonia) are the main disinfectants used to sanitize our tap water in order to make it safe for consumption. However, these chemicals are known to be drying agents which strip the natural oils from your skin, damaging your skin barrier leaving it susceptible to acne, dry skin, rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, the list goes on. 

Don't believe it? Watch how fast your skin absorbs the chlorine in this video. This is what's happening when you wash your face with chlorinated tap water, every single day. 

The best way to protect yourself is to get a Filterbaby water filter. Filterbaby is the only faucet filter that is capable of removing up to 99.9% of both chlorine and chloramine.
