Why the buzz for bamboo charcoal?
Charcoal seems to be everywhere at the moment. It’s in toothbrushes, skin care, water filters, even food – and now bamboo bedding. So do the health benefits and naturally superior fabric quality justify the surge in popularity, or are bamboo charcoal sheets just another trend?
What is bamboo charcoal?
Here at YoHome we make a wide range of products using 100% organic, sustainably sourced bamboo. Our affordable bamboo towels, bamboo bedding, bamboo clothing and bamboo quilts are designed to help Aussie families indulge in the benefits of bamboo.
Our range uses the same high-quality bamboo fabric infused with charcoal nanoparticles. The result is a naturally chemical free material with all the natural strength and durability of bamboo, plus the added health benefits of charcoal.
The benefits of bamboo charcoal
Bamboo charcoal shows up in Japanese history as far back at the 15th century. Today, charcoal is used in a wide range of health products with advertised benefits such as detoxifying the body, purifying air, eliminating odours and more.
Inspired by the health benefits of charcoal, we created our own sheets for a better night’s sleep.
Removes toxins from the body
While you sleep, the natural purifying qualities of infused charcoal nanoparticles get to work absorbing toxins from your skin. Fabric keeps your sheets fresh for longer, while cleansing your skin as you sleep.
Absorbs excess moisture
Bamboo sheets absorb moisture from sweat without holding on to the microbes and bacteria that cause mould, allergies and infection. That means you wake up feeling fresh and dry every day and need to wash your sheets less frequently.
Charcoal filters out odour particles, keeping your sheets smelling fresh. An added advantage here is you don’t need to use excessive amounts of detergent to wash out odours. Simply wash your sheets on a regular cold cycle and they will be ready to use again in no time.
Our bamboo sheets are 100% free from dyes and additive chemicals. One shade, with another on the way, both achieved with natural charcoal. Because there’s no dye or colouring, the sheets won’t fade in the wash and the colour won’t rub off like cheap cotton blends.
Bamboo fibres and charcoal particles make a winning combination. Bamboo sheets provide naturally better insulation, softness and durability. Add to that the purifying benefits of charcoal and it’s no wonder people are loving the eco-friendly indulgence of bundling up in bamboo.
How bamboo charcoal bedding feels and looks
Compared with 100% bamboo, unlike 100% bamboo bedding, sheets are matte with no silky sheen. They are also heavier and thicker than 100% bamboo sheets, making them more divine to sleep on.
Compared with 100% linen, Bamboo charcoal sheets have a linen sort of look, but are softer and smoother to sleep on. Perfect for people with sensitive skin.
