HOW IS HARD WATER LINKED WITH ECZEMA?
A 2017 study from the University of Sheffield and King’s College in London showed that “hard water can damage the skin’s protective barrier and increase sensitivity to irritants found in soap products.”
The study also mentions, “skin pH is normally acidic but hard water has high alkalinity which means it can raise the skin surface pH. A shift towards alkaline pH disturbs the skin’s natural function as a physical barrier and leaves it prone to infection.”
“Patients with eczema are much more sensitive to the effects of hard water than people with healthy skin. This increase in sensitivity is associated with a genetic predisposition to a skin barrier defect brought about by mutations in the gene encoding filaggrin. Filaggrin is a structural protein important for the formation of our skin’s barrier to the outside environment. Up to half of all people with eczema carry a filaggrin gene.”
