Every time you step into your shower, you’re exposed to more than just shower water. While we often consider filtering the water we drink, we also have to consider our shower water as equally important. After all, we use it every day on our skin and hair. Depending on the quality of your city’s local water supply, you may encounter a variety of contaminants in your shower water. It is important to understand the different contaminants in your water, as they can have adverse effects on your hair, skin, and overall health over time. 


Chemicals that can be found in shower water include chlorine, pesticides, and industrial chemicals. These contaminants enter water supplies through industrial or agricultural runoff, improper waste disposal, or as water treatments. Chlorine is often used to treat water supply but in large amounts over time, they can be drying and irritating to your skin and scalp. Pesticides and other chemicals found in runoff can pose risks to human health and ecosystems. 


Inorganic contaminants like heavy metals include lead and mercury. These contaminants can make their way into your water through old pipes. Lead can cause severe health problems, especially in children’s brain development. Mercury can be introduced into water from industrial runoff. Mercury causes health problems in the nervous system and kidneys. 


Physical contaminants include sediments like sand and silt, rust, microplastics, or other organic materials. Sediments like soil, sand, silt can be introduced into your shower water from erosion and runoff. Microplastics can come from various sources like waste from products. Rust in old pipes can also make their way into shower water.
