Experience the Benefits of COPPER-Infused Pillows
Why did we introduced cutting edge COPPER Ion technology into our patented enVy™ Pillows?
The benefits of COPPER pillows include skin enhancement and germ-killing properties.
Copper is scientifically proven to help improve…
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 *Including Bacteria, MRSA, Dustmites, Viruses and Superbugs!
✔️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: some technical jargon to follow*. The main changes in our skin occur in our dermal Extracellular Matrix (ECM), which is made up of collagen fibers (which provide 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 in elastin and collagen production by dermal fibroblasts, and the result is a breakdown of the collagen and elastin fibers forming the ECM.
COPPER is one of the 9 minerals that are essential for humans; it plays a crucial role in all human tissues—this includes the SKIN ! There’s no denying the incredible copper benefits for skin. Recent clinical studies published in the Journal of Dermatology demonstrated that continued exposure to copper oxide-embedded textiles, (such as our pillowcase/liner) significantly reduces depth of facial wrinkles and skin sagging and enhances skin elasticity and general wellbeing.

2. COPPER Kills Bacteria, inactivates Viruses or Fungi, Dust mites 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 resistant bacterial spores, fungi, viruses, allergy causing dustmites are destroyed when exposed to COPPER.
Copper’s toxicity to microorganisms include direct contact killing and/or rendering them helpless by exposure to released copper ions…. kind of 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 erradicated.
The enVy Pillow Company is excited to be part of the new trend offering COPPER-infused ion technology directly into our specialized TENCELⓇ fabric liner under our pillowcases. Endowing the enVy pillow liner fibres with this potent broad-spectrum anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-mite properties creates literally a self sterilizing pillow liner. Our COPPER pillows are permanently powered by CuTEC™, which continually kills any sketchy organisms you may have inadvertently brought to bed with you (on your skin or hair)!

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 as 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.
DUST MITE KILL Study: →
A study published in the “Journal of Pest Management” in the use of fabrics containing copper demonstrates the ability in reducing house dust mite populations (Dermatophagoides farinae) and thus, reducing the load of dust mite allergens. Using 3 variations of fabric, one with no copper, one with a small amount of Copper and a third with 2% copper. The Dust mite kill was fast and thorough with the 2% fabric. NOTE: our Copper fabric has 30% Copper permanently infused into the Tencel Liner.
So if you’ve been sick in bed, forgot to shower, or you just sweat like a piglet, our enVy COPPER-infused pillows will have your back, neck, and head. They support your spine while destroying all the bad guys!

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 , enVy™ COPPER + SILK and our enVy™ TOGO with COPPER)
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 an eco-friendly system that employs a closed loop production process to eliminate 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 it 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 benefit 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, the benefits of copper pillows are astounding! The enVy 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.
The introduction of COPPER ion technology into an ordinary product such as the pillow we sleep on will transform it to an extraordinary pillow — the enVy Pillow.
