An effective skin care regime is not all you need to take good care of your skin. It is not just the cosmetic products you choose to apply on your skin that matter, but also the fabrics that it is exposed to. And this is why it is a good idea to invest in bamboo washcloths, towels and bedlinen. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial. It is not only very absorbent, but also breathes well.
Antibacterial, Hypoallergenic and More
A bamboo washcloth is woven from bamboo fiber. It has several inherent qualities that make it an excellent choice. It is antibacterial, and hence, the towels made from bamboo fiber are healthier for you. It is also hypoallergenic, and is suitable for the most sensitive skin, including that of babies.
Bamboo is super absorbent, and thus it wipes away moisture from your skin effectively. This also means that you do not need to wipe the skin hard, or as much, to keep it dry. The fabric breathes well, and so the cloth dries up quickly.
Its antibacterial nature ensures that the towel remains clean and bacteria free. Between washings, you do not have to worry about issues such as odor and mildew growth. Finally, a washcloth made from bamboo fiber is soft and silky to touch, and feels luxurious against your skin. It is a good idea to have a bamboo washcloth handy in your bathroom, kitchen and also in your car. Whether the cloths are to be used by children or by adults, it will keep the skin dry and clean.
Good for the Environment, Good for You
While they are usually more expensive than cotton or blended fabrics, washcloths made with bamboo fiber are far more durable. And most importantly, they are good for your skin, as well as for the environment. Every time you use a bamboo washcloth and avoid using a disposable towel, you help protect the environment.
You can also take pride in the knowledge that your towels and washcloths are sourced from a sustainable resource. An average bamboo tree requires three years to reach maturity, at which time it can be harvested. It continues to grow after that and will be harvested again in a few years.
Tips on Shopping for Bamboo Washcloths

Experts recommend that you read the product details offered by the manufacturers. Do look for towels that are made from fiber from organic bamboo that has been grown free of chemicals.
