Exhale Shower Filter

Discipline: Product

Long term use of urban water supplies high in residual chlorine deposits. They are a major health risk in many countries. They can harm skin and hair. Heavy metals can also cause negative effects on children’s growth. Overlooked by the public, they are absorbed three times more by the body when showering than when drinking. Exhale Shower Filter removes chlorine and other harmful substances and provides cleaner water. The design balances usability features such as intuitive replacement reminder and easy change filter with a minimal but delicate esthetic which suggests the beauty and care benefits whilst matching the diversity of bathrooms styles.
