Hard water is freshwater that's abundant in minerals. It offers health benefits and is 100% safe for drinking.
However, minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, nickel and copper prevent surfactants in your shampoo from lathering, leaving behind buildup known as soap scum.

Chlorine is a disinfectant that kills germs while making tap water safer to consume.
However, many European countries have recently switched to other water treatment methods out of concern for it's side-effects and to improve the taste.
When chlorine is combined with organic matter in tap water, harmful byproducts such as THMs are produced, which can negatively impact your health.
Here's a list of EU countries which predominantly uses chlorine to disinfect tap water.

Our filter uses an innovative formulation to help remove chlorine, heavy metals, chemicals, and other impurities from your shower.
By removing these, Hello Klean instantly improves the quality of your water, making it kinder to your skin and hair.
KDF stimulates a molecular oxidative reduction, transforming chemicals and metal like chlorine, lead, copper, iron, and more, into benign substances.
Calcium Sulfite removes any residual chlorine and Granular Activated Carbon helps remove trihalomethane (THMs), odor, mould, and bacteria.
The combination of Zeolite, Tourmaline and Far Infra-Red Ceramic Beads increases alkalinity to balance your water's pH level.
The Redox Process utilizes an NSF certified high-purity copper-zinc formulation.
The KDF ingredient stimulates a molecular oxidative reduction, transforming the chemicals and metal ions into harmless substances.
Chlorine, for example, becomes non-toxic chloride.
During the Redox Process, electrons are transferred between molecules within the filter, and new elements are created.
Similar to chlorine, water-soluble heavy metals such as iron, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, and others, plates out onto the ingredient's surface and, thus, effectively removed from your shower stream.
The packaging: The hemp is biodegradable/compostable and the kraft box is recyclable.
The filter case: The refillable casing is made from aluminium, a material that can be infinitely recycled.
The capsules: After swapping out your capsules, air dry it for a day or two, carefully poke a hole through the stainless mesh, then dump out the old ingredients as compost and recycle the plastic casing.
There are two types of minerals found in hard water: water-soluble(iron, copper, lead etc.)and non-soluble(calcium and magnesium). Limescale is caused by the latter.
Our filter removes water-soluble metals alleviating some of the unpleasant side effects of hard water.
It may help reduce limescale residue to a certain extent, but ultimately, we aren't a softening system. A softener is a large device built into your home, uses salt to remove the non-soluble metals, in return reducing limescale.
