How is SilverGuard bed linen different from conventional bed linen?
Our bed linen is made using a blend of Supima® and IONIC+ silver thread. The IONIC+ silver thread is weaved through the Supima® cotton which prevents the growth of bacteria, fungi and other pathogens.
Why is this important? Your body can shed on average around 15 million skin cells in one night, while it has also been estimated that a person naturally produced over 95 litres of sweat in bed every year. This means that your bed linens can become a breeding ground for all kinds of bacteria. The IONIC+ silver thread technology works to prevent the growth of bacteria, making your bed environment a safer and cleaner place in between laundering.
The same technology also acts to be kind on your skin. Your bed linen comes into contact with your skin for around eight hours a day. Studies have found unwashed pillowcases and sheets had several thousand times more bacteria than a toilet seat. As such, traditional fabrics collect bacteria, only to transfer back onto your skin causing acne-prone skin to break out. SilverGuard bed linens allow for healthier skin by tackling acne, redness, and skin irritations as the silver thread technology eliminate acne-causing bacteria working to reduce breakouts on the skin.
