Our Eucalyptus TENCEL™ bed linen is famous for it's low environmental impact but what are the other benefits? Specifically, what exactly does 'Zero Static' really mean and what are the beauty benefits?
The smoothness of silk allows hair to glide across as you move in your sleep without the friction that usually causes hair breakage and the dreaded “bed head”. You will wake up with tangle-free hair and enjoy reduced hair loss in the long run.
Less Face Wrinkles
Have you ever woken up and had sleep wrinkles that definitely were not there before? Good dermatologists are able to identify whether we sleep on our left or right hand side. Well, as we age these sleep wrinkles will slowly develop into more permanent wrinkles. Much like silk, our Eucalyptus pillow cases have far less surface friction than traditional cotton. This means they will fight your wrinkle battle whilst sleeping - what's not to love!
Temperature-Regulating and Naturally Hypoallergenic
Our Eucalyptus fibre is far more hygienic than cotton. It is naturally hypoallergenic (we don't treat it with anything special), meaning it repels dust mites and other allergens. This goes a long way to helping asthma sufferers and appeasing the reactions. Furthermore, our Eucalyptus is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal. This has been proven to help relieve conditions such as eczema, sensitive skin, psoriasis and is more soothing for burns. To enjoy a perfect sleep, you need the perfect temperature: our eucalyptus is the best regulator of temperature (being a naturally poor thermal conductor), meaning that you will be warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Better than Silk: the Ethical and Sustainable Alternative
Silk production boils silkworms alive so that the silk cocoons can be havested before the moths are able to fly away. This cruel method prevents damaging the silk strands as the moths emerge.
Approximately 7,000 silkworms are killed in the making of every kilogram of silk. A cruelty-free alternative is to choose our Eucalyptus TENCEL™ pillow cases, which is cruelty-free and certified vegan-friendly by PETA.
Not only are all our products vegan-friendly, we donate at least 1% of our profits to a variety of sustainability projects through Carbon Footprint and WWF.
So what are the downsides to choosing Eucalyptus versus silk?
None. So, what are you waiting for... Give them a try today and get ready for the most beautiful sleep ever.
