IR is a type of energy that’s invisible to the human eyes, but we can sense it as heat. These waves occur at frequencies above those of microwaves and just below those of red visible light, hence the name “infrared,” which means “beyond the red”.
Infrared radiation can be categorized into three groups according to wavelength, including near infrared (NIR), medium infrared (MIR), and far infrared (FIR) — the latter being the main generator of heat, which occurs at the lower end of the range.

In the context of textiles and fabrics, “bioceramics” can be defined as ceramics that have some sort of biological function, and they can emit far infrared rays (CJP). The clear distinction here is that the ceramic material can recycle and reflect the body’s displaced infrared radiation for general health purposes.
Bioceramic textiles are essentially infused with thermo-reactive minerals (powders) that have been super-heated and turned into fabrics. The ceramic particles in these fabrics are considered perfect absorbers that can help retain and re-emit infrared rays displaced by the body – specifically far-infrared (FIR). Examples of bioceramic powders that can be added to textile structures for this FIR re-emitting benefit include:
Magnesium oxide (MgO)
Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2)
Aluminium oxide (Al2O3)
Iron III oxide (Fe2O3)
Silicon dioxide (SiO2)
Bioceramics notably has a high coefficient of reflection especially in the range of infrared radiation — meaning that a large portion of the IR is harnessed and reflected.

Yes, it does! Please be sure to have the printed (back) side of the blanket face-down towards your body. This side of the blanket appears to have little honeycombs all over it; this is the volcanic minerals which are permanently bonded into the fabric, which helps reflect IR+FIR to the body
The short answer is yes, you can use this blanket with or without clothes on. The bottom line is that the less things that get in between you and the infrared rays, the better; so if you are going to wear clothes while using the blanket, it’s best to wear something lightweight and breathable, like a t-shirt and shorts.
A good way to think about this is akin to how sunlight passes through trees. Take the photo below, for example, and assume that the temperature directly underneath and around the trees is the same.
Even though the trees are casting shadows, there are still some ”sunny spots” where sunlight is passing through the limbs. IR rays work similarly when they travel through layers of clothing. Part of the energy is absorbed and reflected by the clothes, but part of it will make it through to your body anyway.
If you’ve ever walked out from under a tree’s shadow on a sunny day, then you’ve likely experienced an immediate difference — specifically a warmth caused by the energy from the sun. Even if the temperature is the same, it may feel warmer to you because the sun’s IR rays are now reaching your body more directly. Similarly, when you have direct skin-to-blanket contact, it’s much easier to harness your body’s natural IR energy.
This blanket can be used at any time of day (or night). Whether you’re relaxing at home, traveling, or recovering from strenuous exercise, the TrueLight™ Regenerative IR+FIR Blanket promotes cell regrowth within the body — even while you sleep!
Polyester (PET) is a synthetic fiber, which makes it a sturdier and longer-lasting material than some of its counterparts (e.g. cotton). At the end of its long life, it can be recycled. When it comes to sustainability, don’t forget that reusing items is a form of recycling; and polyester can be used many times for different applications. Bioceramic technology notably works only with synthetic fibers that can be infused and bonded at a molecular level to ensure permanence.
While most people prefer natural fibers, there are some drawbacks to these. For example, conventional cotton is extremely toxic to the environment. One pound of pesticides is used in the cotton fiber that goes into a single King-size sheet! The use of organic cotton is still very sparse with most makers of apparel and home furnishings; conventional cotton is more common, and it’s grown with pesticides. Regarding durability, natural fibers are more fragile than synthetic fibers. If they are used regularly, the fibers will wear out faster and therefore be less sustainable than synthetics.
Machine wash separately in cold water. Use only Non-Chlorine bleach as needed. Tumble dry low or line dry. Do not use softeners.
No, normal washing and cleaning of your blanket will not affect its effectiveness. The bioceramic materials used in this blanket are permanently infused into the fabric’s yarn.
