Soft & comfortable, breathable, natural & eco-friendly materials are what you would look for in a clothing when you have sensitive skin. Comfort is essential in order not to aggravate & rub the skin with movement. Breathable material will give a cooling feel to the skin and prevent heat rash. Natural & eco-friendly materials will minimize the exposure of chemical and harsh dye colors which are often used in today’s clothing production. This will minimize risk of contact dermatitis/skin allergy exposure.

Since the ancient times, cotton clothing is well-known for it’s comfort and breathability. However, ultimate smooth and silky feeling is rarely found in 100% cotton clothing, especially after wash. Another upcoming popular option is clothing made from bamboo.

Benefit of Bamboo Clothing

Here are some benefits of bamboo clothing for sensitive skin :

  • Antibacterial/Antifungal -Bamboo fabric is composed of strong anti-microbial properties. It is believed to consist of 3 times more anti-bacterialqualities than cotton clothing. 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.
  • Ideal for sensitive skins – Bamboo apparel is hypoallergenic. Bamboo fiber is smooth and round and its organic and natural fiber properties make it non-irritating to the skin. Bamboo fiber is unbelievably soft and suitable even for babies.
  • Soft and Luscious on the skin – Wearing bamboo material has been described as a sensual experience, like the feel of cashmere or silk. It has a very distinctive lustrous sheen. Bamboo is smooth and soft on the skin. The inherent quality of bamboo fiber (on a microscopic level bamboo fiber has a round surface) makes it a delightful tactile experience unlike other fibers.
  • Regulates your Body Temperature – In hot temperatures, bamboo cools the body by three degrees. This is a very good property to ensure the skin does not get heated further by the heat that is trapped below the fabric.

Here are some very useful testimonials from customers who have tried Zhai bamboo clothing :

“I got to own my personal bamboo fabric yoga top. The verdict? It’s truly soft, amazingly light, yet so stretchy that it feels like nothing. Yes, nothing like a second skin. There is so much freedom for movement and it is more comfortable than any other cotton tops. It has then been my best companion not only  for travelling but also, for yoga classes(especially for hot yoga classes).” – Rachel

When my skin was at it’s worse, inflammed and sensitive, I was having a tough time finding a suitable material that does not irritate my skin and provide breatheability. Zhai’s bamboo legging was my saviour – it was so comfortable, soft and totally did not aggravate my skin. I could wear it in the day time, and at night as a pyjama legging. It makes my skin feel cool when it’s hot and when it’s cold, it provides the ideal protection. I went back and bought 3 sets – in different colours and length – it is now a must have in my wardrobe” – Bee
