Benefits of soft water on skin

Water softeners in Essex can reduce the negative effects that cause dry skin and irritations such as eczemaSoft water is much kinder to your skin compared to hard water.  With hard water you have to use more soap product to get a good lather, which can aggravate and irritate the skin.  As well as being abrasive, hard water doesn’t necessarily wash all the soap residue off.  This leftover residue can worsen dry skin conditions.  By removing the minerals found in hard water, you and your family can benefit from pure softened water.  Soap products lather better and rinse off easier in soft water. Our customers have told us that their skin moisture levels have benefited from soft water, and in cases of eczema and psoriasis their condition has greatly improved.

After a two year study, Scientists at the University of Sheffield and King’s College London have found that hard water damages the skin, raising the risk of infection and potentially contributing to the development of eczema. Minerals in hard water were shown to make skin more sensitive to irritation, but when researchers used a twin-tank water softener in their study they found that softened water could reduce these negative effects. It could even lower the risk of eczema developing in the first place.  Eczema is a complicated condition with signs and symptoms that are different for everyone. A water softener may unfortunately not be the answer in some cases.
