faucet getting clogged continually

My American Standard Ceramix kitchen faucet continually gets clogged up with tiny white particles of various shapes and sizes. It gets clogged both below the cartidge and at the end of the spout where the screen is. I need to take it apart to clean it out or else the water pressure gets very low.

This problem started happening about 6 months ago and is getting worse by the week. I now have to clean it out about once a week.

This is the only faucet where the problem occurs (I have 3 other in the bathroom). My pipes are made of copper. I do have a water softner but was told by the water softner company it could not be coming from there. The water company said there is no problem with their water. The faucet itself seems to be fine. I have no idea where this stuff could be coming from. What do you suggest?
