At Purflo, we have several products which are ‘hypoallergenic’, this simply means that the fabrics and fibres used prevent the build-up of bacteria and dispel dust mites which are known allergens of Asthma and Eczema.
Studies suggest that 1 in 5 children are diagnosed with asthma or allergic rhinitis. An infant’s immune system is passed down from their mother and at six months, when their own immune system is yet to develop, they are at their most vulnerable. After six months, the average child’s new bed will harbour a colony of mites, producing a significant amount of airborne allergens. Using a hypoallergenic material will help to prevent allergens at source, and provide a safer place for babies to sleep during this sensitive time.
Our hypoallergenic products are made with either Amicor™ fibre or Dupont™ Sorona®. Amicor™ is one of the earliest fibre technologies pioneered and developed for Antimicrobial Textiles. Dupont™ Sorona® is a unique patented fibre made from 37% plant extract so as well as been hypo-allergenic, it is also sustainably sourced.
