Many clients ask us: “Does hard water make your skin itch?”
The short answer is: Yes it does!
The minerals in hard water bind to the chemicals in your soap products, and create a “soap scum” on your skin. That soap scum starts to clog your pores and makes your skin get dry, itchy, and crack.
And you’ve probably experienced it before where you walk out of the shower and start itching immediately and have to go grab that bottle of lotion and lather it on. We like to call that a “chemical cacoon”.
When you make the switch to soft water from a Kinetico whole house water softening system your water is the new lotion!
