Ask any parent who has a child with eczema or any eczema expert what their favorite natural fabrics are for soothing the skin and keeping it safe, and they’ll all agree on bamboo fabric! This extremely soft, cotton-like material is light, breathable, and durable – and it even has some antimicrobial properties to keep it clean all day long! Bamboo fabric is soothing to the skin and a wonderful alternative to fabrics that may be harsh or abrasive against delicate skin or eczema flare up patches.
Bamboo Fabric Benefits
Bamboo is completely hypoallergenic. It won’t irritate skin or cause immune responses like wool and synthetics can.
When it gets warm, the fibers of bamboo fabric naturally expand making it easier for the skin to breathe and release any excess moisture from sweat. This in and of itself makes it a wonderful choice for people with eczema.
Bamboo fabric is wonderful at regulating temperature. It’s cool to the touch for hot days, and warming when it’s cold outside.
The natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties of bamboo fabric make it one of the best materials for skin that’s prone to infection.
Bamboo natural fabrics are durable, easy to clean, fast drying, and long lasting. Their softness is lasting and they can stand up to the everyday wear and tear kids are famous for.
Every Bamboo Bubby Bag™ is made with bamboo fabric alongside organic cotton to give them softness, strength, and longevity that simply can’t be beat. The nature of these fabrics are soothing to the touch and a delight for the skin.
ScratchMeNot™ mittens are also created using natural bamboo fabric so that your child gets all the soft, comforting feeling with none of the harsh, abrasive materials.
