Why Soybean Fiber  

They say your bedroom should be a sanctuary. The place to unwind, relax and escape the stresses of everyday life. Most importantly, it’s the place where you sleep. Since sleep has a direct effect on your physical and mental health, choosing the right bedding is crucial when cultivating a comfortable and cozy sleep environment for your body to properly recharge itself for the busy day ahead.  

If you Google search the word “bedding”, you’ll come across a sea of traditional options like cotton, silk, polyester and blends. How do you decide on which material is best for you? There is a natural and renewable material that’s the first of its kind. It’s soybean fiber, yes, the same soybeans that create your vegan favorites like tofu and soy milk is also used to create a touchably soft and warm duvet insert that's great for your skin and even better for the environment. In this post we go over the top 5 benefits of soybean fiber. 

It’s Sustainable and Eco-Friendly  

In recent years, there has been a shift to a more sustainable and eco-conscious lifestyle. This means reducing the use of disposable plastics, like straws, in favor of reusable metal ones. Soybean fiber is a plant-based fiber made from renewable soybeans and utilizes a sustainable production process that recycles excess materials.

Great for Sensitive Skin  

Those with sensitive skin types want to avoid irritating it throughout the night as much as possible. Soybean fiber is naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial. This means it repels and prevents the growth of common household irritants like dust, mold, bacteria and mites. These irritants often exacerbate skin sensitivity problems and are something you want to avoid in order to improve your quality of sleep and skin. 

Incredibly Soft and Warm  

There’s no better feeling than curling up in a cozy and warm bed on chilly winter night. Soybean fiber has a touchable softness and lofty texture that makes for the most comfortable bed you've ever slept in. Our soybean fiber duvet insert has a warmth level of 6 which is the highest level. Its weight and lofty texture provide exceptional insulation and can retain heat, even in the most frigid seasons.  

Promotes a Healthy Sleep Environment 

A healthy sleep environment is crucial for a good night’s rest and can improve how you feel while you’re awake. Irritants like mold thrive in dark and damp places such as your bed, that’s why it is important to keep it dry and clean. Soybean fiber is unique because while it provides excellent insulation for the winter, it also remains extremely breathable. It’s able to quickly wick away excessive moisture to create a perfectly balanced sleep environment that is dry and comfortable. 

Easy to Care For 

While some bedding materials require fancy detergents and tedious hours spent on hand washing, soybean fiber is extremely low maintenance and easy to care for. Like other plant-based fibers, soybean fiber is machine washable. Its moisture wicking and breathable capabilities means that dust, bacteria and dander are not as likely to grow, which means fewer washes and loads of laundry. A win for you and your utility bill.
