Here's what makes Reima Xylitol Cool so cool
Chill out with Xylitol Cool
Xylitol Cool gets its name and its cooling effect from xylitol, which is a naturally-occurring sweetener found in certain fruits, vegetables and plants. Originally developed in Finland from birch trees, xylitol has been used as a sugar substitute for food and chewing gum for decades. It has the sweet taste of sugar without the downers—in fact, research suggests it has 40% less calories, helps to fight against bacteria, and might even be good for our teeth.
These days, xylitol’s benefits aren’t limited to snacks. Together with a similar natural substance called erythritol, xylitol can be transformed into an environmentally-friendly, non-toxic heat-beating fabric finish. The finish is applied to summer clothing like T-shirts, making summer’s soaring temperatures a breeze.
How Xylitol Cool works
When kids wear clothing made with our special Xylitol Cool material, they’ll feel cooler because of the unique cooling finish. This finish doesn’t just create a cooling sensation—it actually cools the skin by 1.8 – 5.4 °F (1-3 °C). After about 10 minutes of wear, body moisture activates the finish, which then starts absorbing heat. It’s a fantastic way to help the body’s own cooling system work even better.
Reima Xylitol Cool fabric is a quick-dry, super stretchy jersey material that’s soft and comfortable to the touch. The finish, which is completely safe and non-toxic, lasts for at least 20 washes.
