SIJO earns asthma & allergy friendly® certification for bedding collection
SIJO earns asthma & allergy friendly® certification for bedding collection. SIJO’s AiryWeight Eucalyptus Textiles Collection creates an effective barrier against dust mite allergens and is CERTIFIED to reduce allergens and irritants and contribute to a healthier indoor environment in the bedroom.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and Allergy Standards Limited (ASL) announced that SIJO’s AiryWeight Eucalyptus Bedding collection has earned the asthma & allergy friendly® certification. The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program, an independent program established in the United States by AAFA and ASL, helps consumers identify products for the home that are more suitable for people with asthma and allergies. Products undergo physical and chemical testing to ensure that these products meet a scientific standard established by the Program. Products that pass all testing earn the CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® mark.
CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® bedding creates a barrier against dust mite allergen, which is a common trigger for individuals with asthma and allergies. SIJO’s AiryWeight Eucalyptus Bedding Collection, including their flat sheets, fitted sheets, pillowcases, pillows, duvet covers, comforters, and mattress protectors demonstrated the following:
- Outer fabric effectively blocks allergens (e.g. dust mite allergen) from passing through
- Fabrics are “breathable” for comfort
- Bedding is easily cleaned to remove allergen accumulation
- Products withstand the wear and tear of the recommended cleaning techniques; and
- Bedding fabrics and components assessed for chemicals known to trigger asthma and allergy symptoms
“We congratulate SIJO on earning the rigorous asthma & allergy friendly® Certification for their bedding collection,” said Kenneth Mendez, President and CEO of AAFA. “The bedroom is one of the most critical areas in the home to make asthma & allergy friendly®. We are pleased that consumers have more options of CERTIFIED products that reduce asthma and allergy triggers while achieving a more comfortable, healthier home environment.”
“Bedding can serve as a reservoir for common household allergens and other harmful substances such as pet dander and dust mite allergen, which may not only triggers allergies and but negatively impact indoor air quality for all occupants,” explains Dr. John McKeon, CEO of ASL. “We are pleased that SIJO’s bedding collection has joined the growing number of leading consumer product manufacturers in this responsible effort to achieve asthma & allergy friendly® Certification. At this time of increased focus on healthy indoor air and wellness at home, it is vital that all product claims are based on good science. We congratulate SIJO on passing our rigorous scientific standards and offering consumers bedding options that are proven to create a healthier indoor air environment.”
SIJO’s AiryWeight Eucalyptus Bedding Collection has met these standards and is CERTIFIED to reduce allergens and irritants and contribute to a healthier indoor environment in the bedroom.
“SIJO is proud to join the family of products CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® with our AiryWeight Eucalyptus Textiles Collection,” says Anni Stromfeld, Co-Founder. “Our mission is to advance sleep solutions and knowledge, allowing more people to sleep better. We are honored to be recognized not only for the efficacy of our bedding collection, but also for its contribution to a healthier home.”
