  • Antimicrobial Properties?
    One of the most exciting benefits of the copper pillowcase (and copper peptides for that matter) is that this ingredient has antibacterial properties. Bacteria and metals do not mix well, so this might be great news for acne sufferers that are seeking a natural solution. In fact, reportedly there is not a single microbe on earth that has developed a resistance to copper ions – over time, they kill bacteria and mold. Considering that are faces are smushed in our pillows for one-third of our lives, having on that’s antibacterial is probably a good idea!

    How To Care For Your Copper Pillowcase?
    Cuprotex advises against using detergent and/or fabric softener. Why? Because it can coat the pillowcase and therefore might make it slightly less effective. Therefore it should be washed without added chemicals.

The Copper Pillowcase Fabric
Right now, there appears to be only one or two manufacturers that make this special fabric. A company called Cuprotex appears to be the leader in this newest invention, and considering they have a patent pending, it’s unlikely they will face much competition. What I found especially intriguing about the fabric is that the copper fibers are actually spun into the yarn – since the copper threads are spun in the yarn, you don’t have to worry about it washing off.
