The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and Allergy Standards Limited (ASL) announced that SIJO’s AiryWeight Eucalyptus bedding collection has achieved 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 home products that are best suited for people with asthma and allergies . Products are subjected to physical and chemical testing to ensure that these products meet a scientific standard established by the program. Products that pass all tests are awarded the CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® mark.
CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® bedding creates a barrier against dust mite allergens, which are a common trigger for asthma and allergy sufferers. SIJO’s AiryWeight Eucalyptus bedding collection, including their flat sheets, fitted sheets, pillowcases, pillows, duvet covers, comforters and mattress protectors, has demonstrated the following:
- The outer fabric effectively prevents allergens (e.g. dust mite allergens) from passing through
- The fabrics are “breathable” for more comfort
- Bedding wipes clean easily to remove allergen buildup
- Products are resistant to wear and tear from recommended cleaning techniques; and
- Bedding fabrics and components evaluated for chemicals known to trigger asthma and allergy symptoms
“We congratulate SIJO on achieving the rigorous asthma & allergy friendly® certification for their bedding collection,” said Kenneth Mendez, AAFA President and CEO. “The bedroom is one of the most critical areas of the home for making asthma & allergy friendly®. We are excited that consumers have more options for CERTIFIED products that reduce asthma and allergy triggers while creating a more comfortable and healthy home environment.
“Bedding can serve as a reservoir for common household allergens and other harmful substances such as pet dander and dust mite allergens, which can not only trigger allergies, but also negatively impact the quality of indoor air for all occupants,” says Dr. John McKeon, CEO of ASL. “We are delighted 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. In this time of increasing emphasis on healthy indoor air and well-being at home, it is essential that all product claims are based on sound science. We commend SIJO for passing our rigorous scientific standards and providing consumers with 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 bedroom environment.
“SIJO is proud to join the CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® family of products with our AiryWeight Eucalyptus Textiles collection,” said Anni Stromfeld, co-founder. “Our mission is to advance sleep solutions and knowledge, enabling more people to sleep better. We are honored to be recognized not only for the effectiveness of our bedding collection, but also for its contribution to a healthier home.
