Introducing the AquaYouth Vitamin C shower head
Enjoy a faster, more powerful, and refreshing shower with a wider shower head.
- Powerful multi-stage filtration
By applying vitamin C and hybrid carbon filters, the AquaYouth vitamin c shower head can achieve over 99.9% removal of residual chlorine, while simultaneously releasing vitamin C into the water, hydrating the hair & skin.
- Reduces levels of chlorine & chloramine*:
It's no secret that activated carbon filters are really important to improve water quality, but many are unaware of how effective vitamin C is as well when it comes to neutralizing chlorine. Our vitamin C filter can remove chlorine by 99%. While activated carbon filters are also effective at removing chlorine in a shower, they don’t have the added benefit of treating your hair & skin with one of mother natures most powerful antioxidants, vitamin C. Chloramine can also be reduced, but not as much as chlorine. *When the vitamin C shower head is combined with the AquaYouth 2.0 shower filter, we are able to achieve over 50% reduction in chloramine.
- Clinically shown to help improve skin moisture*
The AquaYouth Vitamin C shower head has clinically shown to be effective to help improve the moisture in the skin (Face: 56.36%, Arm: 20.38%) after only 2 weeks of usage. Vitamin C is an incredible antioxidant that not only hydrates the skin (Face:56.36% / Arm: 20.38%), but also protects against skin damage from exposure to harsh chlorine. *Testing was conducted by the Korea Testing & Research Institute.
- Quick & easy installation
Attaches to your existing shower configuration in just minutes with no special tools required.

IMPORTANT: Read This Before You Order
We want everyone who orders to understand exactly what our product can and cannot do, so you know what to expect.
1. This shower filter is not designed to reduce the TDS (total dissolved solids). Many water amateurs and companies that want to promote water filters use TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) as the key water quality testing method. The reason is that it’s very easy and cheap to measure. The problem is that this is not a good measure of water quality.
TDS meters measure the conductivity of the water, which can help identify salts and other minerals. However, chlorine, iron, mercury, chloramine, herbicides, pesticides, VOC's, etc, do not impact the conductivity of the water, so they would not be picked up by a TDS meter.
In other words, TDS meters cannot detect toxic & harmful chemicals in water, therefore they should not be relied on to measure water quality.
NO SHOWER FILTER WILL REMOVE THE TDS
What Does It Filter?
Chlorine & Chloramine
Scientists recognized that adding chlorine to drinking water could kill bacteria and microbes in the public water system and help slow or even stop the spread of water-borne diseases, the idea of adding chlorine to water supplies became popular quickly.
In 1897, Maidstone, England became the first town to have its water supply entirely treated with chlorine.
Soon after, the idea spread to the United States, finding its place in local water systems and even gaining popularity in the U.S. military.
Today, chlorination is the most common water treatment method worldwide, particularly in the U.S. where it’s used heavily.
However, a newer chemical is now being used in many different water municipalities in the United States called chloramine, (chlorine+ammonia). Roughly 70% of the United States uses chlorine and 30% are using chloramine.
Although chlorine has it's benefits, like reducing water-borne pathogens, it's still a pesticide and should not ideally be in our drinking water or shower water.
How to filter it: Chlorine is best filtered with either the AquaYouth 2.0 shower filter or the vitamin C filter. Chloramine on the other hand is best filtered using a combination of the AquaYouth 2.0 shower filter with the vitamin C handheld filter.
Is showering in unfiltered tap water really that big of a deal?
Showering in chlorinated water may increase the risk of certain cancers. 3
Chemicals, most commonly chlorine, used to disinfect water can produce by-products that have been tied to increased cancer risk, Villanueva and her team point out. The most prevalent chlorination by-products, chemicals called trihalomethanes (THM), can be absorbed into the body through the skin or by inhalation, they add.
Study participants who drank chlorinated water were at 35% greater risk of bladder cancer than those who didn’t, while use of swimming pools boosted bladder cancer risk by 57%. And those who took longer showers or baths and lived in municipalities with higher THM levels were also at increased cancer risk.
When THM is absorbed through the skin or lungs, Villanueva and her team note, it may have a more powerful carcinogenic effect because it does not undergo detoxification via the liver.
Our skin can absorb chlorine & other chemicals very quickly
In this video demonstration, we show how fast chlorine is absorbed through your skin.
