DermaTherapy fabrics are woven from a blend of polyester and nylon yarns.
DermaTherapy fabrics are woven using fibers with unique cross sections that create micro-channels. These micro-channels carry, or "wick" moisture away from skin, offering relief to those experiencing night sweats and hot flashes.
We have had the fabric and bedding tested numerous times for skin sensitivity as it may relate to concerns from psoriasis/eczema sufferers. These tests included analyses of skin irritation, skin sensitization, and cytotoxicity. In all such testing, DermaTherapy showed passing results, with no cytotoxicity or sensitivity for at-risk skin. The FDA reviewed our test results and found them to pass standards for medical devices used in contact with the skin. In fact, the FDA cleared DermaTherapy as a Class I Medical Device for use by people suffering from psoriasis, eczema and atopic dermatitis.

DermaTherapy fabrics are woven from a strong, continuous-filament yarn that creates a consistently smooth, silk-like surface. Our fabrics are lint free, and release almost no lint or contaminating particles that can irritate the skin and infiltrate pores. Friction and skin abrasiveness are virtually eliminated.
