Sufferers of skin allergies and sensitivities such as eczema and dermatitis often find that itching and irritation is worse at night. This may be due to overheating, or because the stresses of the day aren’t there to distract from the itch. If you are a sufferer of problem skin, making the switch to bamboo sheets and bedding may be the solution to stop your night time itches and scratches. Bamboo sheets have a huge range of benefits:
Bamboo sheets have antibacterial and hypoallergenic properties
Bamboo fabric is both antibacterial and hypoallergenic. Unlike cotton sheets, which when heated retain moisture and create the perfect environment for bacteria to grow, bamboo sheets wick moisture away leaving your sheets fresh and hygienic so your skin sensitivities will not flare up. Bed bugs and dust mites can also be a cause of irritation to those with problem skin. These microscopic pests cannot survive in bamboo due to naturally occurring hypoallergenic properties.
Bamboo sheets are thermoregulating
Bamboo fabric contains millions of microscopic gaps which allows it to be thermoregulating. This means that you will feel cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, minimising your risk of itching and irritability due to overheating in bed.
Bamboo sheets are incredibly soft
Bamboo sheets from ettitude are equivalent to around a 1000 thread count in cotton and the feel has been likened to that of silk. Where many sheets lose their softness and become scratchy with regular washing, we can guarantee that bamboo sheets will always remain soft on your skin.
Bamboo is not exposed to harmful chemicals
Harmful chemicals are not used at any stage of the manufacturing process for ettitude’s bamboo sheets. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth and does not require the use of pesticides to enhance its growth. It also dyes very well, so there is no need to use harsh dyes which are bad for your skin.
