This tencel mattress pad not only protects your mattress against:
water spills (its waterproof)
but also better sleeping conditions – HOW?
TENCEL® feels much cooler when the temperature rises due to high moisture uptake = cool to the touch and soft on the skin.
Compared to cotton, TENCEL® is said to absorb and release 50% more moisture = helps to alleviate skin irritation
With less moisture buildup, bacteria and bed mites are unable to thrive & grow.
HOW is Tencel manufactured?
from eucalypus pulp, grown without chemicals nor pesticides
So what’s eucalyptus fabric all about?
Well, its proper name is lyocell, and, good news, it’s definitely a greener version of rayon, processed with gentler solvents in a 99.6 per cent closed-loop system. The Tencel brand of lyocell is the greenest of all, made with Euro Forest Stewardship Council-certified pulp, so the eucalyptus sourced has a pretty sound rep – from Ecoholic
Oeko-tex Standard 100 certified
uses group hidroxyl with vapour air (ie., no solvent) in the dyeing & lamination process
to produce the fiber they use a solvent that is recycled via closed loop process
via polyurethane film on the back and has been tested and accepted by OekoTex
