The water we use from city water systems has been treated by chemicals such as chlorine and chloramine. By definition, "chlorine is a nonmetallic element occurring naturally as a poisonous, greenish-yellow gas with an irritating, pungent odor." The new technology used in our Sonaki Vitamin C Organic Shower Filter astonishingly uses Vitamin C as the agent to remove the harmful chlorine in the water we use to shower.
Our Sonaki Vitamin C Organic Shower Filter releases the exact amount of vitamin to neutralize all chlorine or chloramine as the water passes through the shower filter. When the water is shut off, our Sonaki Vitamin C Organic Shower Filter stops releasing the vitamin. This economy of vitamin release increases the useful life of our Sonaki Vitamin C Organic Shower Filter significantly. Also, our Sonaki Vitamin C Organic Shower Filter works in any water temperature, any water pressure and the lifetime of the filter does not depend on the water quality. All of the benefits discussed here will become clearer as you read on.
Our Sonaki Vitamin C Organic Shower Filter uses pharmaceutical grade Vitamin C as dechlorination agents. Each of our Sonaki Vitamin C Organic Shower Filter cartridges contains roughly 20 grams of Vitamin C and is capable of neutralizing .4 ppm chlorine in 3,000 Gallons of water. Since different attributes of water will affect your actual results, it lasts for approximately 2 months to 3 months. The life time is independent on the temperature and pressure of water and about 300% to 400% longer than that of KDF shower filter. The flow rate of the shower head is roughly the same before and after the Vitamin shower filter is installed. It works universally as long as the regular shower head can be used.

Chlorine and Chloramine - To better appreciate the power of using Vitamin C as the dechlorination agent in our Sonaki Vitamin C Organic Shower Filter, the hazards in our water supplies must be better understood. These dangers are real and should not be overlooked or accepted by the general public.
Chlorine is universally used to chemically disinfect public water systems because of its toxic effect on harmful germs, bacteria and disease-causing organisms. As defined above, chlorine is a toxic gas. With greater exposure to toxic chlorine contained in water supplies, the potential health dangers we face become more real.
During the bathing process, the chlorine evaporates out of the water and is inhaled. This toxic gas can also spread through the house and be inhaled by others. Some reports claim that as much chlorine enters the body by inhaling steamy chlorinated shower vapors or through the open pores of the skin as that which enters the body by drinking chlorinated water during the entire day. This increased exposure to the adverse effects of chlorine by household residents an be from 6 to 100 times more than medically recommended.
Chlorine also attacks the skin and skin oils, creating a dermal drying effect. Shower water can also cause or worsen skin irritations and rashes as well as drying the skin. Showering and bathing in chlorinated water will also result in the breakage of hair shafts. Because chlorine is absorbed into the body through the skin, additional physical problems can ensue. Chlorinated water can also irritate eyes, leaving them red, itchy and burning. Inhaling the toxic steam can aggravate the sinuses and lungs. Chloramine, although a more stable compound, contains chlorine and ammonia and is also used to control bacteria in water systems. Its harmful effects cause the same dangers as pure chlorine.
Traditional Shower Filter Technologies - Activated carbon filtration (AC) is effective in reducing certain organic chemicals and chlorine in cold water. Chlorine is attracted to and held (absorbed) into the surface of the carbon particles. However, the efficiency of absorption is quickly nullified when the water becomes warm. The lifetime of an activated carbon shower filter is very short. An activated carbon shower filter gets clogged very quickly by the dirt it is meant to stop. As soon as that happens, it immediately starts to supply dirty water.
KDF, another widely used dechlorination media, is comprised of copper and zinc. It removes free chlorine by reversing the electrochemical process that originally separated the chlorine from sodium in a brine solution. It can't, however, remove chloramines and, it's efficiency depends on water temperature, it doesn't work well in cold water.
There are several other limitations using KDF as a de-chlorinating agent. KDF shower filters are also affected by water pressure. When the water pressure is not high enough, water simply can't pass through the KDF powders. The major problem of KDF shower filters is that the lifetime of the filter depends on the quality of the water passing through it. This is truly a catch-22. When the quality of the water is bad, that's when we need a shower filter the most. The dirt a KDF filter removes from the water quickly covers the surface of the KDF that in turn makes the filter ineffective very quickly. When the quality of the water is clean, we don't need a shower filter and KDF shower filters works great and will last a lot longer.
Other shower filter manufacturers use sulfur-based compounds such as calcium sulfite or sodium sulfite (or sulfate) as de-chlorinating agents. These sulfur-based compounds can be toxic to humans. The addition of excess sulfite and sulfate chemicals to our water supplies has always been a concern.
Advantages of Vitamin C Over Traditional Technologies - Vitamin C dechlorination has a lengthy history. It has been used in EPA and APHA methods for the dechlorination 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 chemical would be catatrophic. Breeders of rare fish also choose this method of dechlorination. Very recently, Vitamin C dechlorination is being used in the treatment of water. It fully neutralizes both chlorine and chloramines.
There are several powerful arguments for using Vitamin C instead of KDF, activated carbon or sulfur-based compounds as dechlorination agents. Vitamin C utilizes ascorbic acid chemistry for dechlorination. It is made with an essential vitamin for humans and many animals, which is known to boost the immune system, improve skin and hair of humans. It is also the safest and least toxic of dechlorination agents.
The research by US EPA found that L-Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) reacts rapidly and stoichiometrically with active chlorine and has limited interactions with disinfection byproducts. They found no interference from L-ascorbic acid or its oxidation product (dehydroascorbic acid) in mutagenicity assays of chlorinated NOM using Salmonella typhimurium TA100, with or without metabolic activation.
