Experience the Benefits of Tencel Pillows
Why did we introduce cutting edge Tencel pillows with the COPPER Ion technology into our patented enVy Pillows line? The benefits of Tencel material include skin enhancement and germ-killing properties. Copper is scientifically proven to help improve skin tone, skin texture, and skin wellness.
How COPPER in a Tencel Pillow Makes Your Skin Beautiful?
- COPPER Promotes the Production of Elastin + Collagen
- COPPER is a Germ Killing Powerhouse *Including Bacteria, MRSA, Dustmites, Viruses and Superbugs!
- COPPER has Anti-Inflammatory Benefits for Speedy Tissue Healing and Repair
The introduction of COPPER ion technology into an ordinary product such as the pillow we sleep on will transform it into an extraordinary pillow.— the enVy Pillow.
1. COPPER Promotes Elastin + Collagen and Skin Regeneration
As you age, you know how your skin becomes wrinkled and literally more rigid. Your skin loses that wonderful firmness, elasticity, tone, texture, skin depth, flexibility, and dewy moisture you may be taken for granted in our youth.
*Warning: some technical jargon to follow*.
The main changes in your skin occur in your dermal Extracellular Matrix (ECM), which is made up of collagen fibres (which provide strength and structure) and elastin (which provides elasticity and resilience).
Collagen and elastin are secreted mostly by fibroblasts. As you age, there is a reduction in elastin and collagen production by dermal fibroblasts, and the result is a breakdown of the collagen and elastin fibres forming the ECM.
COPPER is one of the 9 minerals that are essential for humans; it plays a crucial role in all human tissues—this includes the SKIN! There’s no denying the incredible copper benefits for your skin. Recent clinical studies published in the Journal of Dermatology demonstrated that continued exposure to copper oxide-embedded textiles, (such as Tencel material) significantly reduces the depth of facial wrinkles and skin sagging and enhances skin elasticity and general wellbeing. This alone is our motivation to offer the benefits of Copper in enVy Pillow by infusing the powerful ions directly into the pillow liner, under the pillowcase.
2. COPPER Kills Bacteria, inactivates Viruses or Fungi, Dust mites and SUPERBUGS (including MRSA)
COPPER is a potent and natural germ-killing superhero! Its biocidal properties have been used for centuries around the world. Both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including superbugs such as MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staph Aureus) and the Coronavirus as well as resistant bacterial spores, fungi, viruses, allergy-causing dust mites are destroyed when exposed to COPPER.
Copper’s toxicity to microorganisms include direct contact killing and/or rendering them helpless by exposure to released copper ions…. kind of like ‘kryptonite’. The damage occurs at the microorganisms’ microbial envelope, intracellular proteins, and nucleic acids (but you knew that already). The microorganisms cannot deal with exposure to high concentrations of copper and are irreversibly damaged and eradicated.
The enVy Pillow Company is excited to be part of the new trend offering the benefits of copper in enVy Pillow. Our COPPER-infused ion technology is directly infused into our specialized TENCELⓇ fabric liner under our pillowcases and on top of the unforgettable memory foam. Endowing the enVy pillow liner fibres with this potent broad-spectrum anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-mite properties creates a self-cleaning pillow liner essentially. Our COPPER pillows are permanently powered by CuTEC™, which continually kills any sketchy organisms you may have inadvertently brought to bed with you (on your skin or hair)!
SUPERBUG KILL Study
We conducted our own 3rd party Lab Testing… because we like to see these claims for ourselves. So, we placed MRSA on our pillowcases with the Copper-infused TENCEL® liner lovingly placed underneath. Within the first hour, the bacteria was reported as an 85% KILL. After 24 hours, the bacteria was 99.9% eradicated. *That’s 99.9% more than any other pillow around! Check out the results attached.
Further studies have shown COPPER alloy eradicates viruses such as the Norovirus, C Difficile, E. Coli and Coronavirus.
DUST MITE KILL Study
A study published in the “Journal of Pest Management” in the use of fabrics containing copper demonstrates the ability in reducing house dust mite populations (Dermatophagoides farinae) and thus, reducing the load of dust mite allergens. Using 3 variations of fabric, one with no copper, one with a small amount of Copper and a third with 2% copper. The dust-mite kill ratio was fast and thorough with the 2% fabric. NOTE: our Copper fabric has 30% Copper permanently infused into the Tencel cover.
So if you’ve been sick in bed, forgot to shower, or you sweat like a piglet, our enVy COPPER-infused pillows will have your back, neck, and head. They support your spine while destroying all the bad guys!
This Therapeutic Super “Clean Sleep” Pillow is a MUST HAVE after invasive and non-invasive procedures and as part of your acne and rosacea battle. CuTEC ™ powers COPPER Ion technology. The TENCELⓇ (the official name of Tencel material) liner under our pillowcase is permanently infused with this COPPER Ion technology and is available in our enVy COPPER line of pillows.
The Tencel fabric we use to infuse the COPPER into is a branded Lyocell fibre of Botanic (raw wood) origin. Lensing® (the makers of Tencel) uses an eco-friendly system that employs a closed-loop production process to eliminate any chemicals entering our environment. When Tencel is used in production, the textiles are naturally more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk, and cooler than linen.
We are proud to offer you both a clean night’s sleep AND a green night’s sleep that feels good, and that you can feel good about. Tencel provides the peace of mind that this liner is sustainably sourced and consumes as few resources from the earth as possible.
3. COPPER’s Anti-Oxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Effects
Human skin is not sensitive to COPPER. It is readily metabolized and utilized by the body. Skin heals from the “inside out”. Copper helps with this process by healing from the “outside-in”. It may be beneficial in the healing of cosmetic procedures, cuts, wounds, and even hard-to-treat skin pathologies.
COPPER’s anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects can promote and literally speed up wound healing. Additionally, it has been shown to aid in the treatment of scarring. COPPER is an essential mineral that plays a key role in many physiological and metabolic processes, including angiogenesis and skin generation. *Angiogenesis is the development of new blood vessels… new blood vessels mean more oxygen supply. Plus, as discussed earlier COPPER’S antimicrobial benefits have potent wide spectrum biocidal properties. The combination of these two distinct actions makes COPPER a vital necessity for the improvement of our skin’s health and well-being.
COPPER has been used for many years in the treatment of pain and inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis. As it assists in blocking the production and release of chemicals that cause pain and inflammation. The Bonus: The wonderful the benefits of copper in enVy Pillow is that it is a non-steroidal and natural anti-inflammatory agent.
Infusing COPPER directly into fabrics and textiles allows applications beyond what we could imagine. Placing these specialized fabrics close to our skin provides amazing positive effects. From accelerated healing of infections, repair of broken skin and open wounds. Or simply reducing fine lines and wrinkles, the benefits of copper pillows are astounding! Our comfortable Tencel pillows are must-haves after any procedure— from injectables, laser resurfacing, post plastic surgery or eye treatments and blepharitis. And of course, a great adjunct to the treatment of acne and rosacea. We are thrilled to introduce the benefits of copper in our Tencel pillow.
