It’s hard to resist buying those cute sunglasses or tiny bathing suits for your little ones during the summer. And we all know proper sunscreen and hydration are key, but how can bamboo contribute to keeping cool during those hot summer months?
The harmful effects of sun exposure are becoming more and more evident to the point where we simply cannot avoid taking precautions. Luckily, bamboo clothing is naturally already infused with UV protection. Studies have shown that bamboo can block up to 98 per cent of harmful UV radiation. UV radiation can be very damaging to anyone, and damage done at a young age can even cause problems that won’t appear until later on in life.
Bamboo clothing is naturally hypoallergenic, which means you can expect fewer allergic reactions, which, with all the active pollen and cut grass in the air, is definitely a blessing! Infants are very sensitive and susceptible to allergies, and you undoubtedly want what’s best for your new child. Bamboo fibre is very smooth and it sits perfectly next to the skin. This helps your baby rest more comfortably and avoid problems with itching.
And last, but certainly not least, bamboo plants that the fibres are made from are naturally anti-bacterial, and your infant’s bamboo clothing will be as well. Bamboo prevents the development of almost all bacteria – a handy weapon when dealing with sticky ice cream hands and outdoor picnics. It’s a force to be reckoned with. As a result, bamboo clothing stays fresher. It stays odour-free for a longer period of time. And in addition to smelling better, the anti-bacterial force of bamboo also results in your baby having better hygiene—and we all know that’s an uphill battle!
