The Benefits of COPPER - in Bed
There are a few important reasons why we introduced COPPER Ion technology into our patented enVy™ Pillow. Copper is scientifically proven to help enhance…
Skin Tone, Skin Texture and Skin Wellness
*Individual results of improvement in skin tone and texture may vary
✔️COPPER Promotes the Production of Elastin + Collagen
✔️COPPER is a Germ Killing Powerhouse
✔️COPPER has Anti-Inflammatory Benefits for Speedy Tissue Healing and Repair
As we age, we all know how our poor skin becomes wrinkled and literally more rigid. We lose that wonderful firmness, elasticity, tone, texture, skin depth, flexibility and dewy moisture we took for granted in our youth. *Warning: we are going to get all science-y and technical here* The main changes in our skin occur in our dermal Extracellular Matrix (ECM) which is made up of fibres of Collagen (which provides strength and structure) and Elastin (which provides elasticity and resilience).
Collagen and Elastin are secreted mostly by fibroblasts. As we age, there is a reduction of elastin and collagen production by dermal fibroblasts and the result is a breakdown of the collagen and elastin fibres forming the ECM .
COPPER is one of the 9 minerals that are essential for humans, as it plays a crucial role in all human tissues — this includes the SKIN !

2. COPPER Kills Bacteria, Virus or Fungi and SUPERBUGS (including MRSA)
COPPER is a potent and natural germ killing Superhero!. Its biocidal properties have been used for centuries around the world. Both gram positive and gram negative bacteria, including Superbugs such as MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staph Aureus) as well as ‘hard to kill’ bacterial spores, fungi and viruses which are killed when exposed to COPPER. In some cases, they are killed within minutes of exposure.
Copper’s toxicity to microorganisms include direct contact killing and rendering them helpless by exposure to released copper ions…. just like kryptonite. The damage occurs at the microorganisms’ microbial envelope, intracellular proteins, and nucleic acids (but you knew that already). The microorganisms cannot deal with exposure to high concentrations of Copper and are irreversibly damaged and killed.
The enVy Pillow Company is excited to be part of the new trend offering COPPER infused ion technology directly into specialized fabrics. Our COPPER line of pillows is powered by CuTEC™ which provides this naturally anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal benefit and continually kills any sketchy organisms you may have inadvertently brought to bed with you!
So if you’ve been sick in bed, forgot to shower or just sweat like a piglet, our enVy COPPER infused pillows have your back, neck and head by supporting your spine while killing all the bad guys!
We conducted our own 3rd party Lab Testing… because we like to see these claims for ourselves. So, we placed MRSA on our pillowcases with the Copper infused TENCEL® liner lovingly placed underneath. Within the first hour the bacteria was reported an 85% KILL . After 24 hours, the bacteria was 99.9% eradicated. *That’s 99.9% more than any other pillow around! Check out the results attached.

This Therapeutic Super “Clean Sleep” Pillow is a MUST HAVE after invasive and non-invasive procedures and as part of your acne and rosacea battle. Our COPPER Ion technology is powered by CuTEC™. The TENCELⓇ Liner under our pillowcase is permanently infused with this COPPER Ion technology and is available in our enVy COPPER line of pillows (enVy™ COPPER + Bamboo and enVy™ COPPER + SILK.)
The TENCEL® fabric we use to infuse the COPPER into, is a branded Lyocell fibre of Botanic (raw wood) origin. Lensing® (the makers of TENCEL) uses a eco-friendly system that uses a closed loop production process which eliminates any chemicals entering our environment. When TENCEL® is used in production the textiles are naturally more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.
We are proud to offer you both a clean night’s sleep AND a green night’s sleep that feels good, and that you can feel good about. TENCEL® provides the peace of mind that this liner is sustainably sourced and consumes as few resources from the earth as possible.
How enVy COPPER Technology Keeps Your Sleep Clean
Human skin is not sensitive to COPPER. It is readily metabolized and utilized by the body. Skin heals from the “inside out“. Copper helps this process by healing from the “outside in” and may be beneficial in the healing of cosmetic procedures, cuts, wounds and even hard to treat skin pathologies.
COPPER’s anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects can promote and literally speed up wound healing. Additionally. it has been shown to aid in the treatment of scarring . COPPER is an essential mineral that plays a key role in many physiological and metabolic processes, including angiogenesis and skin generation. *Angiogenesis is the development of new blood vessels… new blood vessels mean more oxygen supply. Plus, as discussed earlier about COPPER’S antimicrobial benefits, it has potent wide spectrum biocidal properties. The combination of these two distinct actions makes COPPER a vital necessity for the improvement of our skin’s health and well-being.
COPPER has been used for many years in the treatment of pain and inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis as it assists in blocking the production and release of chemicals that cause pain and inflammation. The Bonus: The wonderful benefits of COPPER is that it is a non-steroidal and natural anti-inflammatory agent.
Infusing COPPER directly into fabrics and textiles allows applications beyond what we could imagine. Placing these specialized fabrics close to our skin provides amazing positive effects. From accelerated healing of infections, repair of broken skin and open wounds OR simply reducing fine lines and wrinkles, having COPPER in your pillow is a ‘must have‘ after any procedure — from injectables, laser resurfacing, post plastic surgery or eye treatments and blepharitis. And of course, a great adjunct to the treatment of acne and rosacea.
