The effectiveness of the Shair filter
Unfortunately, many stores and online shops tell “fairy tales” about hookah filters. For example, they say that smoking shisha is healthier than smoking cigarettes, while it has been scientifically proven that more dangerous constituents (in number and quantities) are present in water pipe smoke than in cigarette smoke.
For this reason, the Dutch company RMC Trading BV decided to put filters on the market that really do what they promise.
For this purpose, RMC Trading cooperated for two years with scientists from Cobra Technologies BV and ASL Analytic Service Laboratory GmbH. Both recognized and independent laboratories managed to develop the Shair filter together with RMC Trading.
This filter partially removes the carbon monoxide and other toxins released by burning coals, while at the same time maintaining the pleasure of smoking. This mouthpiece can block out as much as 80% of the tar. That is ten times more than any other water pipe filter!
The top Dutch quality product the Shair filter is the only one of its kind that can fully and transparently demonstrate scientifically how well it works. The scientific test reports on the Shair filter, a WHO study and facts on health issues related to hookah smoking can be found here.
