Plant-Based Activewear: The Benefits of Choosing Plants Over Polyester

Are you curious about the benefits of wearing natural fibers instead of polyester? Natural fibers have been shown to be more comfortable and more sustainable in so many ways. Here we break it down about why:

1. Keeping Cool and Dry: Polyester might leave you feeling sweaty and overheated during your workouts because it's a hollow fiber that isn't designed to let air flow easily. TENCEL, however, excels in moisture-wicking properties, ensuring you stay dry and comfortable. It efficiently absorbs and releases moisture, allowing your body to breathe, even during intense exercise sessions.

2. Gentle on Skin: Polyester can sometimes cause irritation or discomfort against your skin from all of the chemicals applied to Polyester fabrics to keep them quick-dry and anti-stink. TENCEL, on the other hand, is hypoallergenic and incredibly gentle. It's a great choice for those with sensitive skin or allergies. Say goodbye to chafing and hello to a comfortable, irritation-free workout.

3. Unrestricted Movement: Activewear should provide freedom of movement, whether you're mastering yoga poses, hitting the track, or tackling a challenging spin class. TENCEL's natural stretch and flexibility make it the ideal choice. You can move without constraints, giving your best performance in every workout.

4. Temperature Control: TENCEL isn't just about comfort; it's about adaptability. Whether you're in a hot Bikram yoga class or braving a chilly morning run, TENCEL's thermal regulating properties have you covered. It adjusts to your body's temperature, ensuring you're warm in the cold and cool in the heat.

5. Environmentally Friendly: Polyester, derived from petrochemicals, isn't the most environmentally friendly option. TENCEL, on the other hand, is made from sustainably sourced wood pulp, mainly from eucalyptus trees. Its production process is eco-conscious, using a closed-loop system that recycles water and solvents, minimizing waste and energy consumption. By choosing TENCEL activewear, you're making a green choice for your workouts.

Next time you're shopping for activewear, consider the practical advantages of TENCEL, the #1 ingredient that we use in our products. Your body will thank you for the comfort, and the planet will appreciate your eco-conscious choices :)
