Bamboo - is it really hypoallergenic?
Firstly, as of this writing, we have not encountered anybody
who has had an allergic reaction to bamboo fabric. We do believe that out of
all the choices out there, bamboo is certainly one of the best for those with
sensitive skin conditions or those that have had allergic reactions to fabrics
in the past.
Ok, let’s look at the word “hypoallergenic”, what does it
mean? According to Merriam Webster, the definition is “having little likelihood of causing an allergic response”.
Although we do not have any specific laboratory tests that support the
hypoallergenic properties of our bamboo clothing and bamboo bedding products,
we do have strong indications from those that have tried bamboo fabrics - that
they certainly don’t appear to present any problems, even for those with
sensitive skin conditions. In fact, quite the contrary – most people have
shared with us it’s natural moisturizing qualities and that it has helped them
with skin irritations.
