We are pleased to inform you today as our customer that the manufacturer Sanapur – known by its slogan “Recommended by physiotherapists” – has reacted to the COVID 19 pandemic situation with its Original Pillow 4.0 and has created a scientifically* sound solution with “Viroclean”, how viruses can be eliminated faster and how you as a Sanapur pillow customer can also stay healthy while sleeping.

Viroclean – a very brief scientific explanation of how it works:

The innovative finishing additive “Viroclean”, which has been proven to efficiently reduce virus activity, is incorporated into the textile PuraCell® Cosy Soft cover (inside the pillow).
The active component in the “Viroclean” finishing additive targets enveloped viruses, such as SARS-COV-2 (the coronavirus), Influenza H1N1, as well as germs, bacteria and fungi, and has already been proven several years ago in a Viroclean* research project focusing on the “production of medical protective equipment”.
Recent studies by Viroclean* have shown that viral activity decreases as a function of time: The half-life of a virus activity in textiles is +/- 4 hours. A textile treated with a finishing additive shows a reduction in the activity of enveloped viruses after only 2 hours. This reduction can reach up to 97% depending on the type of fabric.

BI-OME® technology with antimicrobial substances

The manufacturer Sanapur is experienced with antimicrobial technologies. The Sanapur Original pillowcase is hygienic, easy to clean and durable. It is made of micro-tencel, which naturally inhibits the growth of bacteria and distributes moisture better on the surface. Removing perspiration increases personal sleeping comfort – the pillow and head stay drier. The fabric of the pillowcase outside has been produced with the trend-setting BI-OME technology for years. With its antimicrobial substances, this ensures that microorganisms are effectively combated. This coating is 100% biological and absolutely harmless to humans and the environment. The cover can be washed at 60 degrees, the antimicrobial protection remains.
