Our lives are changing due to the westernized lifestyle and eating habits. In addition, the prevalence of atopic dermatitis is increasing worldwide, and the quality of life is deteriorating. Unlike in the past, we spend more time indoors, increasing exposure to indoor air pollution, and increasing exposure to chemical detergents, antibiotics, including surfactants to live a cleaner life. As for diet, high calories and cholesterol foods are common and easily found in convenience stores. You do not need a kitchen to cook them, just pick up and ready to eat. Physical activities decreased and spending most of our time on a chair is on the rise. In a psychological sense, social changes have been accompanied by an increase in stress, depression, and fatigue. Moreover, the habit of drinking an adequate amount of water also declined. Unintentionally, we live as our own culprit that cause negative effects on our lives without hesitation.

Construction materials, interior materials, and furniture at home contain substances like benzene, formaldehyde, and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that may cause respiratory symptoms and skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis. The air pollutants can enter the body from respiration or skin contact. In order to prevent indoor air pollution, it is necessary to ventilate frequently every day. Biocera photocatalyst air filter helps remove indoor air pollutants and sterilizes bacteria and viruses. Biocera photocatalyst air filters can be easily installed in any air conditioner or air purifying systems.
