Xylitol Cooling Activewear
Our UV protective Xylitol Cool Activewear collection is made to keep kids cool as they run, jump, score, and more. The cooling effect comes from Xylitol - a natural sweetener commonly used in gum and sweets. Our Xylitol Cool activewear lowers skin temperature by 1-3 degrees by absorbing the heat off kids’ skin as they sweat.
Here’s What Makes Reima’s Xylitol Cool so cool
Xylitol Cool gets its name and its cooling effect from xylitol, which is a naturally-occurring sweetener found in certain fruits, vegetables and plants. Originally developed in Finland from birch trees, xylitol has been used as a sugar substitute for food and chewing gum for decades. It has the sweet taste of sugar without the downers—in fact, research suggests it has 40% less calories, helps to fight against bacteria, and might even be good for our teeth.
These days, xylitol’s benefits aren’t limited to snacks. Together with a similar natural substance called erythritol, xylitol can be transformed into an environmentally-friendly, non-toxic heat-beating fabric finish. The finish is applied to summer clothing like T-shirts, making summer’s soaring temperatures a breeze.
