Bugatchi Uomo offers several Tencel clothing products, which are particularly appealing for those with sensitive skin. Tencel is trademark of Lenzing fibers.
Studies have shown that 50% of women and 40% of men testify to having a sensitive skin. The rise in skin diseases such as neurodermatitis and psoriasis is alarming. Sensitive skin reacts particularly quickly to heat and cold as well as to physical and chemical irritations. This results in a reddening of the skin, itchiness and skin irritations. TENCELÂ® has the ability to help people with sensitive skin. The cellulose fiber is gentle to the skin and ensures a natural feeling of well-being. The combination of the following properties: moisture management, a cooling effect and a smooth fiber surface, prevents skin irritations and helps to maintain the balance of the skin.
Compared with cotton, TENCELÂ® feels much cooler when the temperature rises due to the particularly smooth surface and the high moisture uptake.
In particular people with sensitive skin frequently suffer in warm temperatures. Independent studies
have revealed that a cooling effect has a positive influence on oneâ€™s well-being.
Studies have proven that wearing TENCELÂ® clothes can lead to a significant improvement in well-being. A smooth fiber surface, thermal regulation and a high moisture absorption all favor a positive skin climate. Furthermore, textiles containing chemicals negatively effect particularly sensitive skin. TENCELÂ® is naturally pure and not burdened with chemicals.
