Why Bamboo Clothing is Best for Babies with Sensitive Skin

You’ve probably heard that bamboo apparel is good for the planet, but did you know that it’s also a wonderful choice for babies with sensitive skin or eczema? Here’s why…

HL-Bamboo-Launch

If your little one suffers from sensitive skin or eczema, you’ve probably tried every remedy under the sun to relieve the itching and irritation. From natural washes and lotions to prescription creams, there are endless treatment options for these aggravating skin conditions. But what works for some babies may exacerbate the problem for others.

Rather than desperately seeking the right treatment for your baby, you can try to prevent flare-ups from occurring in the first place. Avoid soaps, creams and laundry detergents that contain harsh chemicals and steer clear of clothing made from fabrics that can irritate the skin. Some of the worst offenders are wool, linen, nylon and polyester.

The benefits of bamboo clothing for sensitive skin

 

Bamboo clothing is made from the pulp of bamboo grass and it has many benefits for babies with sensitive skin or eczema. Bamboo fabric is:

  • Lightweight
  • Extremely breathable
  • Naturally hypoallergenic
  • Temperature-regulating
  • Moisture-wicking and quick-drying
  • Naturally resistant to UV rays and odor-causing bacteria

Because eczema and skin irritation can be triggered by heat, moisture and allergens, the temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking and hypoallergenic properties of bamboo reduce the occurrence of flare-ups.

Your baby’s eczema is less likely to become infected thanks to bamboo’s natural resistance to many types of bacteria. Bamboo fabric is also resistant to UV rays, so you won’t have to slather your tot in sunscreen that contains harsh chemicals that could irritate their skin.

Bamboo clothing is good for the planet too

 

Not only will you breathe a sigh of relief when your baby’s skin finally clears up, you’ll also feel good knowing that the production of bamboo clothing causes minimal harm to the environment.

Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world – some species can grow up to four feet a day! – and it doesn’t require any fertilizers or pesticides to grow. It needs very little water and a bamboo grove produces 35 percent more oxygen than trees planted in the same amount of space. Bamboo clothing also biodegrades more quickly than oil-based synthetic fabrics.
