Designed to absorb, store, and reﬂect back the body’s IR+FIR wavelengths
Permanently suspended in the yarn, charcoaled bamboo particles and proprietary volcanic minerals reflect IR+FIR wavelengths back to the user making this fleece blanket unique. These innovative technologies enable the gentle transmission of energies through the skin and into the tissue and organs of the body.
Ideal for airplane travel, after exercise, or while spending the evening relaxing at home, especially because of the ability to help the user fall asleep 15-20 minutes faster. An additional beneﬁt of charcoaled bamboo is its absorption of odors, which will keep your blanket fresher, longer!
It is not just light that we can see that comes from the sun. White light splits up into a spectrum of many different wavelengths and colors. Visible light is just part of a continuous spectrum of electromagnetic radiation.
The invisible infrared and far-infrared light spectrum is our focus for the Regenerative IR+FIR textiles
There is scientific evidence that infrared and far-infrared light spectrums have a biological impact on our bodies. The red spectrum of light penetrates the skin deeper than other light spectrums, to reach the hypodermis. It is this deeper penetration that allows the benefits to be so far-reaching. Our blanket is designed to absorb the body’s own infrared and far-infrared rays, instead of dissipating, they are reflected to the body to heal and regenerate.

What are infrared (IR) and far-infrared (FIR)?
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.

What are “bioceramics”?
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.
How do bioceramic fabrics work?
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 the 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)
Aluminum oxide (Al2O3)
Iron III oxide (Fe2O3)
Silicon dioxide (SiO2)
Titanium dioxide (TiO2)
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.

Does it matter which side of the TrueLight® Regenerative IR+FIR Blanket is facing my body when I use it?
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. The honeycomb ceramic print has been permanently bonded with volcanic minerals in the fabric. These honeycombs help to reflect IR+FIR back to the body.
Can I use the TrueLight® Regenerative IR+FIR Blanket while wearing clothes?
The short answer is yes, you can use this blanket with or without clothes on. The bottom line is that the fewer 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.
How does IR penetrate clothing?
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.
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.
When is the best time to use the TrueLight® Regenerative IR+FIR Blanket?
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!
Why is the TrueLight® Regenerative IR+FIR Blanket made from polyester fiber?
When it comes to sustainability, reusing items is a form of recycling. Polyester (PET) is a synthetic fiber, which makes it a sturdier and longer-lasting material than some of its counterparts (e.g. cotton) and it’s recyclable.
While most people prefer natural fibers, there are some drawbacks to these. For example, conventional cotton is extremely toxic to the environment. It takes approximately one pound of pesticides to produce a single cotton King-size sheet! The use of organic cotton is still very sparse with most makers of apparel and home furnishings because conventional cotton is more common. Regarding durability, natural fibers are more fragile than synthetic fibers. With regular use cotton fibers wear out faster, therefore making them less sustainable than synthetics.
How do I clean the TrueLight® Regenerative IR+FIR Blanket?
Machine wash separately in cold water. Use only Non-Chlorine bleach as needed. Tumble dry low or line dry. Do not use softeners.
Will washing/cleaning the TrueLight® Regenerative IR+FIR Blanket degrade its effectiveness?
No, with the bioceramic materials permanently infused into the fabric’s yarn, normal washing and cleaning of your blanket will not affect its effectiveness.
