| Will the Great Southern Water Puronics Softener Filtration System make my skin softer?
Hard water causes soap film to attach itself to everything from shower doors to skin. The main ingredient in soap is a form of lye, which breaks down dirt. Certainly you wouldn't put lye on your skin; however, you are doing just that every time you wash with hard water. The lye, which is a caustic material, sticks to your skin, thus drying it out. If you would like to prove it, wash your hands using soap and water. Now taste your finger. It should taste like soap. That soap is drying out your skin, which makes you want to treat the symptom by applying skin lotion. Water softeners eliminate scummy soap curd and result in a clean lather which is kind to skin, reducing dryness and itching.
