Bamboo viscose fabric boasts many health benefits that allows men to keep their skin cool, clean, and healthy.

Can you name the largest organ in the human body? If you guessed your skin, you’d be correct! Your skin takes up approximately 20 square feet of space, and protects your body against everything from microbes to the weather! That’s why it’s so important to maintain healthy skin, and protect it from harm and irritation.

Many men around the world deal with skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and more. For instance, more than 7 million people in the U.S. have psoriasis, and 16 million have rosacea. Other men may simply have skin that is sensitive to irritants such as rough fabrics or chemical ingredients. It’s important to do everything you can do to treat and manage these conditions to ensure you have the healthiest skin possible.

Why Fabrics Matter

You may not know it, but the clothes you wear may be irritating your skin. According to the National Eczema Society, wool and synthetic materials such as polyester and nylon can cause overheating, sweating, and irritation in the skin, which triggers conditions such as eczema. 

Bamboo is the most comfortable underwear fabric for me

Bamboo viscose fabric is often recommended (for example by the National Eczema Society) as a clothing option for people with sensitive skin. Curious about how bamboo fabric is different from conventional fabrics? Here are five big reasons:

1. Bamboo Fabric is Hypoallergenic

If you suffer from allergies to wool or hemp, clothing made from bamboo viscose fabric may well be the perfect substitute. Bamboo fabric is hypoallergenic, so it won’t irritate your skin like other natural fibers, and the smoother bamboo fibers are less likely to irritate sensitive skin.

2. Bamboo Fabric is Ultra-Soft

Bamboo fabric is renowned for its softness (it is often compared to silk in appearance and feel) and will never feel scratchy on your skin, as opposed to cheaper fabrics such as cotton. Bamboo fabric also offers greater elasticity than cotton, which offers greater comfort and less chafing by moving with your body throughout the day.

3. Bamboo Fabric is Great at Regulating Temperatures

Another advantage of bamboo viscose fabric is its excellent ability to regulate the body temperature of its wearer. Bamboo fabric is lightweight and insulating, which means that it will help you stay cool during hotter seasons, and warm during colder seasons. 

The temperature-regulating properties of bamboo fabric are especially relevant for people with eczema, where variations in temperature can cause flare-ups. Keeping your skin cool and comfortable will offer some much-needed relief!

4. Bamboo Fabric is Antibacterial

One of the most unique properties of bamboo fabric is its ability to inhibit bacteria growth. As opposed to cotton or polyester fabrics, which can actually encourage bacterial growth, bamboo possesses antibacterial properties due to a naturally occurring component known as bamboo kun, which is what protects the plant against insects, microbes, and bacteria.

The additional hygienic benefit of bamboo’s antibacterial properties is that slowing down bacterial growth means bamboo clothing stays fresher (and better-smelling!) for longer throughout the day.

5. Bamboo Fabric is UV-Protective 

The damaging effects of UV exposure are well known: aside from increasing the risk of skin cancer, extended UV exposure can cause skin damage and premature skin aging. How can bamboo fabric help? 

Bamboo fibers feature an ingredient called lignin, which possesses UV absorption properties. When lignin is retained during the manufacturing process, this natural UV resistance is passed on to the bamboo fabric. Pretty cool, right?

Treat your skin to comfort and style today 

It can be a daunting and sometimes frustrating challenge to protect your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin or deal with one of the many common skin conditions out there.
