Suppose you have sensitive skin, skin allergies, or a chronic skin disorder like eczema. In that case, you know that the discomfort of itching and irritation is excruciating and can be worse at night. Let’s face it, you just want to scratch your itchy skin, but when you do, it makes it worse. The red, inflamed skin flare-ups can be embarrassing. The many chemicals in our environment and fabrics that touch our skin can cause increased skin issues. That’s why we always encourage the use of sustainably-made products that don’t use harmful chemicals as we strive for a better, cleaner world.
Managing skin irritation
Skin irritation comes in many different types, and each has unique causes and symptoms. Most skin irritations can be managed with a regular skincare routine, over the counter, or prescription creams. It’s also important to avoid things that irritate your skin or cause flare-ups, like non-hypoallergenic bed sheets. With so many common causes of skin allergies, few people think about their bedding, mattress, or bed sheets as their skin’s irritant or the fact that there are hypoallergenic sheets for sensitive skin.
Have you considered switching to bamboo fabrics known to be great for sensitive skin?
Let’s look at some of the bamboo fabric attributes and learn why it’s an excellent solution for a comfortable night’s sleep. Disclaimer: keep in mind that not all bamboo fabrics are made the same way.
Benefits of bamboo fabric: hypoallergenic bedding for sensitive skin, sheets, towels, and more
Antibacterial and hypoallergenic properties
Bamboo fabric is both antibacterial and hypoallergenic. Unlike cotton sheets, which retain moisture and create the perfect environment for bacteria growth, bamboo sheets wick moisture from your skin, leaving your sheets fresh and hygienic. Less bacteria means less skin flare-ups. Bed bugs and dust mites are other culprits that can also cause skin irritation or itchy skin. These microscopic pests don’t survive in bamboo due to the fabrics naturally occurring hypoallergenic properties.
Thermoregulating bamboo bedding means your sensitive skin stays cooler, less itchy
Bamboo fabric contains millions of microscopic gaps, which allows it to be thermoregulating. This means that you feel cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, minimizing your risk of itchy skin and irritability due to overheating when you’re in bed or an uncomfortable temperature.
Silky-soft, non-irritating bedding for itchy sensitive skin
The silky-soft feel of our bamboo sheets is like silk, equivalent to 1000 thread count in cotton. While many sheets lose their softness and become rough with regular washing, bamboo sheets remain soft on your skin and become softer as you wash them, especially when delicate treated with delicate care andeco-friendly laundry detergent.
