For people with sensitive skin as a result of conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or acne, finding the right bedding can be difficult. Not only does conventional bedding do little to control dampness that results from sweating; it can feel rough and ‘catch’ on dry skin patches or areas of acne.
A DermaTherapy fitted sheet helps solve this problem, providing a smooth, dry, hygienic, allergy-free surface to sleep on. This is important in two ways: it removes the problem of friction, helping to create the right conditions for good rest (which is important for optimal health); and it helps to control potential irritants of the skin condition.
DermaTherapy bedding is designed specifically for people with problem skin and is especially suitable for anyone suffering from eczema or acne. In fact, it is the first bedding to be classified as a Class I Medical Device for mild atopic dermatitis in the European Union and the US.
The sheets are pure white in colour and are available in most of the sizes you would expect for UK beds: single (2'6" - 3' wide), double (4'6" wide), and king (5’ wide).
The unique construction of these sheets helps keep the sleeping surface smooth and dry. This reduces the risk of itching and irritation associated with dry skin conditions, and is also easier on acne-prone skin that may be inflamed.
This is firstly because the fabric channels moisture away from the skin, meaning that sweat evaporates more easily and is less likely to cause the skin to stick to the sheet.
The sheets are made of unique microfibers that provide a surface of continuous filament woven yarns. This is an advantage over standard polycotton sheets as they are completely free of loose fibres that can protrude, potentially causing skin irritation or even trauma.
Also, because of the durable antimicrobial finish of these fitted sheets, they remain hygienic and odour-free at all times. For people with acne or dry skin conditions, the risk of excess bacteria forming on the skin can complicate the condition.
Even after frequent washing, the fitted sheets remain free of lint and the quality will not deteriorate as quickly as standard sheets.
The inbuilt soil release system makes the sheets easy to keep clean, removing oil, medication, and blood using standard washing procedures.
DermaTherapy fitted sheets are part of a range of bedding that also includes pillow cases, duvet covers, flat sheets, and more.
