A recent study carried out by the government and university scientists found that personal care products, indoor cleaners and other chemical containing agents are becoming the major source of air pollution. The reason is that although there have been achievements to reduce the emissions in the transport industry which is one of the biggest contributors to pollution and global warming, domestic cleaners and cosmetic fragrances (like perfume and aftershave) have made little effort to reduce the number of toxins and VOCs.

These products are not only harmful to the environment but also to our health when used in our home. According to the EPA, VOCs cause eye, nose and throat irritation, frequent headaches, nausea, and can also damage the liver, kidney and central nervous system.
It is paramount that we protect ourselves and our families by cleaning the air from the invisible harmful substances. The solution is to get an air purifier that will tirelessly clean day and night.
