Sleeping with the Allergy
With allergies affecting over 21 million adults in the UK*, Silentnightâ€™s range of anti-allergy mattresses and beds are designed to help sufferers rest easier at night.
Silentnight Hypoallergic mattresses are fully approved by Allergy UK and contain Purotex; A natural probiotic treatment infused in to the fabric which absorbs moisture, preventing dust mites, bed bugs, mould and other allergens.
Purotex technology works as you sleep. Movement in the bed creates friction which causes the probiotic capsules within the fibres to activate, which releases friendly bacteria that absorb the moisture produced by the body, forming a natural barrier against irritants.
Dust mites are one of the most common triggers for a number of allergies ranging from hay fever and asthma to sensitive skin conditions like eczema, which often worsen at night. Over 35% of allergy sufferers report disturbed sleep and the warm and humid bed environment provides a haven for the mites which thrive in these conditions.
To keep allergies at bay, it is recommended that bedding is washed and changed frequently and washed at over 60 degrees. Silentnight mattresses treated with Purotex keep hygenically clean and are designed to aid a healthy nightâ€™s sleep.
Purotex is available on selected hypoallergenic beds and mattresses from Silentnight. For further information please visit http://www.silentnight.co.uk/hypoallergenic
