Collection: Dust Mites and Eczema

Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition characterized by dry, itchy, and inflamed skin, often influenced by genetic and environmental factors. Dust mites in household dust can aggravate eczema in those allergic to them, as these allergens trigger immune responses and skin irritation. This includes using allergen-proof bedding covers, regular cleaning with HEPA filters, controlling indoor humidity, and washing beddings in hot water. Effective management of both eczema and dust mite allergy is crucial for symptom relief and improved quality of life, with healthcare provider consultation recommended for personalised treatment.

Why bamboo is the great fabric if you have eczema

Bamboo fabric boasts natural antibacterial properties due to a bio-agent known as "Bamboo Kun," enabling its growth without pesticides or fertilizers. Studies, including one by the Japan Textile Inspection Association, reveal that bamboo fabric retains 70% of its antibacterial effectiveness even after 50 washes. Another study by the China Industrial Testing Center found a 99.8% bacteria kill rate in bamboo fabric over 24 hours against Staphylococcus aureus.

These findings indicate bamboo's potential suitability for eczema-prone skin, which is often inflamed or infected.
