Questions & Answers

What does the Alb Filter actually do?

This depends on the cartridge used:

Thus Alb Filter Nano as drinking water filter as well as shower water filter offers reliable protection against bacterial or virus contamination in water. Inside there is a high-performance hollow fibre membrane which, due to its small diameter of 0.1 µm, is able to reliably retain bacteria, microorganisms and pathogens such as legionella, E-coli, Vibrio Cholarae, shigella and salmonella.

The Alb Filter Balance filter solution focuses on healthy and soft skin as well as strong and shiny hair. Besides the reduction of harmful substances, lime, odour, taste and turbidity from the water, the filter media can provide for a pH stabilisation of the water as well as an enrichment with minerals for a pleasant skin feeling after showering.

Some activated carbon filters improve their effectiveness with chemical additives. Does this also apply to Alb Filter?

Activated carbon is a carefully processed renewable raw material that has been used as a natural filter medium in every waterworks for decades. Alb Filter uses the pure natural product without chemical additives (e.g. silver), which is also not necessary because the performance spectrum of the activated carbon from coconut used is very high.

Skin & Hair

The hair structure

Our hair grows from the so-called hair root. Similar to a tree, it is supplied with nutrients and minerals. Growth takes place through the extension of the hair shaft, which pushes upwards through the scalp and grows out. The inside of the hair is called the hair core and is surrounded by keratin.

The outer protective layer
The coat of hair is formed by individual superimposed scales (cuticle), which are arranged similarly to a fir cone.

The growth of our hair

Our hair grows periodically. Growth starts with the anagen phase, which can last up to 6 years. In this time the hair root develops and a new hair can develop. Then the 14-day catagen phase begins, in which the hair is shifted to the surface of the scalp. In this phase the young hair is very sensitive to mechanical irritations such as washing or combing. The final phase of the cycle is called the telogen phase. A new hair already forms under the scalp and pushes itself again towards the surface.

Our hair colours

Melanin determines our hair color. More precisely, the relationship between eumelanin (responsible for dark hair colors) and phaemelanin (responsible for light hair colors). It is therefore easy to understand that light blonde hair is created by the complete absence of eumelanin. In contrast, the concentration of phaemelanin is naturally increased.

Red hair contains a lot of phaemelanin and little eumelanin. If the hair turns grey with age, this is a sign of the decrease in melanin production in our body.

body protection

Our skin is the largest sense organ of our body. We feel cold, warmth, pressure and pain over them and feel this with the whole skin surface. It is the contact to our outside world and reflects our well-being. The skin can blush or pale and we get goose bumps when we freeze.

The word "skin" goes back to the Indo-European term "hat", which originally means "the envelope". The skin protects us from heat and cold, heat and friction and the penetration of harmful substances, bacteria and germs.

The right care

The water alone removes most of the dirt from our skin. Water washes around our body in the shower and washes away sweat, body odours and pathogenic microorganisms. In return we get a refreshing skin feeling, which gives us a wonderful revitalisation after the shower, followed by relaxation. The purer the water is, the more alive our skin feels after a shower or bath.
