There are two different types of water, hard and soft water. Around 60% of the UK has hard to very hard water. Counties like Suffolk, Norfolk, Bedfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire are known for being ‘the UK counties with the hardest water.’
When the water is hard, a water softener can reduce the hardness and create softened water with more benefits than you can imagine. Silky soft Luxury Water can transform your home and lifestyle with the gentle touch of BWT softened water.

Many believe that water-only baths are the gentlest way to wash your newborn baby. However, that is only true if you live in an area with soft water. Many believe that water-only baths are the gentlest way to wash your newborn baby. However, that is only true if you live in an area with soft water because the water has an acidic pH. A newborn baby’s skin surface also changes to an acid pH. The acidic film on the surface of the baby’s skin is called an acid mantle and it acts as a barrier to protect the skin. Hard water, on the other hand, has an alkaline pH. So if you live in a Hard Water area, and wash your baby with just water, it may unsettle the acid mantle of your baby’s skin and dry it out. (2)
Luxury Water removes minerals like calcium and magnesium from hard water, to replace them with sodium ions, leaving you with softened water. Softened water creates a lot more soap lather and bubbles during bath time. As such, you only need a small quantity of soap or shampoo for every wash – saving you money and time (3). Soap lathers are also gentle on a baby’s skin, and leave your baby’s skin feeling smooth and soft.
