Bamboo Benefits

 

Anti Bacterial/Anti Fungal

Bamboo fabric is composed of strong anti-microbial properties. It is believed to consist of 3 times more anti-bacterialqualities than cotton clothing. In the wild bamboo thrives without the help of pesticides and fertilizers. It is rarely affected by pests or infected by pathogens. Bamboo contains a bio-agent called “bamboo kun” which retains the anti-bacterial properties in the fabric. Unlike other anti-microbial fabrics which need chemical treatments, organic bamboo fiber clothing is naturally anti-microbial, requiring no harmful chemicals. Bamboo clothing’s natural anti-bacterial function differs greatly from that of man-made chemical anti-microbial fabrics, which often tend to cause skin problems.
