Bamboo – The Best Material for Children with Eczema

Research shows Bamboo is beneficial for the healing of sensitive skin with conditions like eczema or dermatitis.

Bamboo is the softest and least abrasive fabric to delicate skin, due to its ability to pull moisture away from the body. The scientific term for this is the capillary or wicking effect and research shows that of the five leading fabrics available on the market, bamboo has the highest capillary effect, absorbing more moisture and drawing it away from the body than other fabrics and also decreasing the level of abrasion and damage to sensitive skin.

When skin becomes sweaty, fabric used to cover it causes the level of abrasion to increase, which then worsens skin conditions like eczema and is especially harsh on the delicate skin of babies or children with eczema. This is why synthetic fabrics which do not let the skin ‘breathe’ are notoriously bad for eczema skin.

Bamboo fabric is hypoallergenic

The fibres within bamboo fabric are round and naturally smooth with no sharp spurs which will irritate sensitive skin, making it perfect for babies with eczema or anyone who may suffer allergic reactions to other types of fabrics like wool. This is also why bamboo fabric feels so soft.

Bamboo fabric is antibacterial

Bamboo contains anti-bacterial and bacteriostatic bio-agent called “Bamboo Kun”, which is what allows it to naturally flourish and grow in the wild without the use of pesticides or fertilizers.

Studies where bamboo fabric was tested over a 24 hour incubation period with the bacterial strain Staphylococcus aureous. Their results showed after a 24 hour period, the 100% bamboo fabric showed a 99.8% kill rate.

These reports show bamboo is an ideal fabric to use on eczema skin when it is inflamed and even infected.

While a lot of time and effort has been taken to determine the ideal fabric for our range, in the end it was simple – no other fabric feels as soft or can soothe skin like bamboo, we also have added hand cuffs in all sizes to stop your little one scratching. check out our range of Sleepeaz and Playjays now, link in bio. 🌱
