Benefits of Bamboo & Graphene in Period Products
Not only is it sustainable, uses no fertilisers, pesticides or farm machinery it speeds up healing as its naturally anti-bacterial, highly absorbent and wickable, UV resistant, hypoallergenic and thermally regulating phew what a CV!!!
The bamboo mix fabric is extremely soft and breathable. Since we only use OEKO-TEX Standard 100 approved, you can be sure that it is free of harmful substances and will be kind to skin, even sensitive skin! Our fabric is proven to accelerate recovery post-surgery as it is highly bacteriostatic.
Bamboo inherently has antibacterial properties, which means it resists the growth of bacteria and fungus that can nest within fibres and cause odour over time. Some synthetic activewear is chemically treated to make it odour resistant, but these chemicals can cause allergic reactions and are especially problematic for sensitive skin (not to mention bad for the environment). Bamboo clothing resists odours naturally making it better than other materials.
People with sensitive skin or who are prone to allergic reactions from certain types of fabrics and chemicals will find relief with organic bamboo fabric, which is naturally hypoallergenic. Bamboo does not have to be treated with chemical finishes making it safe for even the most sensitive skin types.
Bamboo thrives in warm, humid climates. That means that the fibre of the bamboo plant is uniquely suited to help regulate body temperature. A cross-section of bamboo fibre shows that the fibres are filled with tiny gaps that increase ventilation and moisture absorption. Bamboo fabric helps keep the wearer cooler and drier in warm conditions and warmer in cooler conditions.
Bamboo fibres are naturally moisture-wicking unlike many synthetic fabrics which need to have chemicals applied to make them so. The natural bamboo plant typically grows in hot, humid environments. It is naturally absorbent, easily soaks up moisture enabling it to grow quickly. Bamboo grass is the fastest growing plant in the world, growing up to one foot every 24 hours. This is partly due to its ability to use the moisture in the air and ground. When used in fabric, bamboo naturally wicks away moisture from the body, helping the wearer to stay cool and dry. Bamboo textile also dries very quickly.
The micro gaps identified in bamboo fibres enhances breathability. Bamboo fabric is lightweight, as air can circulate through the fabric keeping the wearer cool, dry, and comfortable.
Graphene is a strong and durable material that consists of a single layer of carbon atoms. These atoms are tightly bonded by strong chemical bonds, which makes graphene 200 times stronger than steel. This material is part of one of the most abundant substances in nature, graphite (graphite can be found, for example, in the mines of our pencils). One millimetre of graphite contains three million layers of graphene!
Graphene fibre in the textile industry has gained popularity because it is claimed that thermal properties revolutionize clothing. Graphene fiber acts as a filter between the environment and the skin. It expels heat in warm surroundings but preserves the heat in cold weather by evenly distributing body heat. Graphene-enhanced fabrics naturally reinforce body temperature adjustment making fabrics comfortable and lightweight.
The use of a combination of bamboo and graphene in our period underwear ensures that all wearers can rest assured that their period underwear are highly anti-bacterial, odour neutralizing and highly absorbent making them ideal period pants that can give you peace of mind while you bleed.
