Modern Zinc is a new company that is changing how we view Sheets. I received a free set of sheets for review before they were made available to the public. First and foremost sheets are used for comfort. But with developments in textile technology, there’s now opportunity to use sheets in news ways to benefit our health beyond comfort.
Modern Zinc was created to explore how sheets could make our sleep even more productive. This is the first product that infuses zinc directly into the sheets. Why zinc? According to the company, zinc will keep your sheets fresh longer and is also beneficial to your skin by supporting healing and reducing inflamation.
Modern Zinc currently has a Kickstarter campaign running where you can back their project to receive a set of these sheets when they come out. If they reach certain funding milestones they will release the sheets in different colors. As of this writing they only have white.
I think sheets should first be judged on feel. If they don’t feel nice, there’s no sense in using them since being comfortable is the first step to getting a good night’s sleep. Modern Zinc Sheets are made with a sateen weave and a 400 thread count. This makes for a crisp, smooth and breathable sheet. I slept on them after one wash and they were already starting to soften up. They should keep softening up over time. These sheets are made in China.
While I have only slept on them for two nights so far, I can say that they are comfortable and durable. I really can’t speak to the effects of the zinc but knowing that these sheets are at least comfortable and may have some benefit beyond comfort is kind of nice. I am also interested to see if these sheets stay fresh longer than my regular sheets without zinc.
I didn’t notice any significant shrinkage after drying. The stitching is well done and I expect them to hold up well. If anything, you can buy the pillow cases separately since it will come in direct contact with your face and that is where you will probably get the most benefit from the zinc.
In terms of safety, these sheets meet the Oeko-Tex standard 100, class 1. Is certified for baby product according to the Kickstarter site and is biodegradable.
Modern Zinc puts the tech in textiles. This product is a great choice for people that don’t religiously wash their sheets every week and want them to stay fresh, longer. While I can’t speak to the benefits of using these sheets over a long period of time, yet. I can say that they are very comfortable, breathable quality sheets so know that you are getting a good value despite all the extra potential benefits of zinc!
