What is meant by hypo-allergenic?
Hypo-allergenic translates as less likely to cause an allergic reaction and is usually used in the fields of cosmetics and textiles. Although it cannot guarantee that no allergic reaction will be caused, manufacturers will have taken steps to minimise the risk of any allergic reactions being caused by their products either by using materials that are less likely to affect most people, or by treating their products in ways that will minimise allergic reactions.
Who should use hypo-allergenic bedding?
Most people who suffer from skin allergies, respiratory problems, asthma, sensitive skin and allergies to common house dust and mould can benefit from using hypo-allergenic bedding. By removing the most common causes of these allergies, or stopping them from reaching your skin or airways, you can make sure of a more comfortable and healthy nights sleep.

How do I care for hypo-allergenic bedding?
It is important to regularly refresh and replace your hypo-allergenic bedding to ensure that you get the most benefit from its use, and to make sure that house dust mites and bacteria, which are a common cause of many allergies, are killed off entirely, it is necessary to wash the bedding at a temperature of at least 60c. Always make sure you check individual labels to make sure the bedding, pillows and duvets can be washed at this temperature.
Can I dry clean hypo-allergenic duvets and pillows?
It depends on the individual product, and will be detailed on the laundry label that is attached. If you do use this method, do keep in mind that some of the chemicals that are used in dry cleaning can exacerbate particular allergies, in which case machine washing followed by tumble drying or line drying may be a better option.
Is hypo-allergenic bedding safe for everyone?
Yes, it is, and it is especially recommended for kids and people who are prone to allergies even if they are not showing any symptoms, as a preventative measure.
