COMMON DUST MITES IN BEDS CAUSE ALLERGIES
SmartSilk™ products help allergy sufferers get a great night of sleep
Montreal, QC – We never sleep alone. We spend about a third of our lives in bed and that bed is a haven for dust mites. In fact, duvets, mattresses and pillows are the home to millions of dust mites because of the warm and humid environment that allows them to dine on human skin flakes.
Dust mites are microscopic eight-legged relatives of spiders that devour cast–off flakes of human skin. They eat, mate and worst of all, defecate in beds and pillows. And therein lies the real problem. Dust mite excreta are loaded with allergens that cause human suffering. The microscopic droppings become airborne and readily escape from bedding to torment allergy sufferers. The droppings produce a protein that humans inhale while sleeping, causing respiratory passages to become inflamed and irritated creating a clogging in the lungs. According to MayoClinic.com, for some people, dust mite allergy may be the primary cause of inflammation and contraction of airways of the lungs (asthma), resulting in wheezing, shortness of breath and other breathing difficulties including snoring. There are over 50 million asthma and allergy sufferers in North America, of which 20% are children under the age of 18.
Allergy sufferers and their partners often suffer from a very poor night of rest, which negatively impacts upon many other elements of their lives including work and school performance, personal health and overall energy levels. SmartSilk™ has developed a full range of bedding products to help allergy sufferers get a great night of sleep, leading to better health.
The key to this good night’s sleep lies in the bedding. Traditional mattress covers and
pillow cases protect the mattress and pillow. In addition to protecting the bed, the SmartSilk™ bedding protects the person sleeping in it. Exposure to allergens is reduced when the mattress and pillows are covered with certified mite-barrier fabrics. SmartSilk™ serves as a natural barrier and actually repels the mites. SmartSilk™ bedding products have been proven to kill dust mites by removing the heat and moisture the bugs need to survive. They are the first and only all natural bedding to be certified asthma & allergy friendly™ by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and the Asthma Society of Canada.
The silk filled duvet is lightweight and thin. It wicks moisture from a sleeper and dissipates it into the surrounding air instead of retaining it. These special wicking properties of the SmartSilk™ products transfer heat and humidity making for a more comfortable and restful sleep, especially for menopausal women plagued by night sweats or people dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy treatments.
SmartSilk™ provides a full array of bedding products including duvets, mattress covers, pillows and pillow covers. Also, while all SmartSilk™ products are a luxurious white, decorating with other colours is easy through the use of duvet covers, bed sheets, pillow cases and throw pillows. Simply use sheets and pillow cases that are cotton or a cotton/polyester blend along with the SmartSilk™ products.
SmartSilk™ products are certified to be chemical free, fire retardant and made with all natural SmartSilk™ silk fill. Also, SmartSilk™ products are resistant to mold & mildew and will not retain odors. All of their products are environmentally friendly machine washable with cold water and can be tumble dried on a low heat setting. They also include a 10 year warranty on manufacturer defects with a 60 day, 100% satisfaction money back guarantee.

My Impression: When I received these I was floored by how comfortable these are! They feel like what an old fashioned feather pillow feels like, but without those annoying feathers poking through the pillow and hurting you. These are soft and don't lose their shape easily, but after getting up they bounce back to their original shape. My husband came in from work tonight and Id just bought pillow-cases and placed these in them when he laid down he immediately asked me if Id bought new pillows because he said they felt soft and comfortable so comfortable in fact...
Yes he fell asleep in less than 10 minutes and yes he would kill me if he knew I posted his picture on the internet! Honestly, though we love these and another thing. I love that naturally when these lay on our bed they have a cold feel underneath the pillow which I love because I love sticking my hands underneath the pillows in the middle of these hot Summer nights and feeling the nice coolness under the pillows. So soothing! Not to mention my husband & I suffer from allergies all through-out the Summer. It's nice to know these help repel those rotten dust mites!
