The Cooling Canvas® Is Made For Hot Women


Postpartum, Perimenopause, Menopause and Menstruation… also known as the hottest times in a woman’s phase of life. While pregnancy and postpartum are avoidable, and not all women experience the heat surges during certain points in their menstrual cycle, perimenopause and menopause are inevitable phases in a woman's life, marking a shift in oestrogen and progesterone that makes her hot! 


While this transition is a normal part of XX chromosomes, feeling too hot to sleep can be challenging to navigate, especially if it lasts a decade! One common concern that women often face when feeling hot due to their peri hormones, is the disruption of sleep due to night sweats and hot flashes. 


In the pursuit of comfort, Phenxx have designed an innovative solution made for Hot Women! Today we want to talk about one of the awesome materials used in our Cooling Canvas that women may have heard of, but want to know more about: Tencel™. 


In this comprehensive exploration, we will delve into the intricate science behind Tencel™, understanding how its sustainable production process, derived from wood pulp, often from Eucalyptus trees, not only provides cooling comfort but also contributes to a healthier planet.


Understanding Menopausal Discomfort:


Menopause brings about hormonal changes, including a decline in oestrogen levels, leading to a range of symptoms. Among these, night sweats and hot flashes can be particularly troublesome, making it challenging for women to get a good night's sleep. The increased body temperature and excessive sweating can leave one feeling restless, irritable, and fatigued.


Enter Tencel™: The Cooling Comfort Solution:


Tencel™, also known as lyocell, is a revolutionary fabric derived from wood pulp, primarily sourced from eucalyptus trees (haven’t we all sought shade under a eucalypt on a hot summer’s scorcher?) Its unique properties make it an ideal choice for bedding, especially for menopausal women seeking relief from nighttime heat.


The Sustainable Science of Tencel™:


1. Eucalyptus Trees – Nature's Gift:

Tencel begins its journey with the harvesting of eucalyptus trees, which are known for their rapid growth and minimal environmental impact. Eucalyptus trees require significantly less water than traditional cotton crops and can thrive on marginal lands unsuitable for other agricultural activities. This ensures that the cultivation of eucalyptus for Tencel production is both sustainable and eco-friendly.


2. Closed-Loop Production:

The hallmark of Tencel's sustainability lies in its closed-loop production process. The wood pulp extracted from eucalyptus is processed using a solvent spinning technique. In a closed-loop system, the solvent used in the process is almost fully recycled, minimizing waste and reducing the environmental footprint. This closed-loop production not only conserves resources but also prevents harmful chemicals from entering ecosystems.


3. Efficient Water Usage:

Tencel production boasts an efficient water usage system. The eucalyptus trees used in the process require less water compared to traditional cotton crops. Moreover, the closed-loop production significantly reduces the water consumption during the manufacturing stages. As water scarcity becomes an increasingly pressing global issue, Tencel stands out as a responsible choice in bedding materials.


4. Biodegradability:

In addition to its sustainable sourcing and production methods, Tencel is inherently biodegradable. At the end of its lifecycle, Tencel returns to nature, leaving a minimal environmental impact. This contrasts starkly with synthetic materials that can persist in landfills for extended periods, contributing to environmental pollution.


Cooling Comfort and Menopausal Relief:


1. Breathability:

Tencel's sustainable journey aligns seamlessly with its cooling comfort benefits. The fabric's natural breathability allows air to circulate freely, creating a cool and comfortable sleeping environment. For menopausal women experiencing night sweats and hot flashes, Tencel bedding becomes a breathable sanctuary that helps regulate body temperature.


2. Moisture Management:

Night sweats are a common occurrence during menopause, leaving sleepwear and bedding damp. Tencel excels in moisture management, efficiently wicking away moisture from the body and ensuring a dry and comfortable sleep surface. This feature not only helps in reducing discomfort but also contributes to maintaining optimal skin health.


3. Thermoregulation:

Tencel's natural thermoregulation properties play a significant role in creating a conducive sleeping environment. It adapts to the body's temperature, cooling when it's warm and providing warmth when it's cool. This dynamic response makes Tencel bedding an ideal choice for menopausal women, as it helps alleviate the challenges associated with temperature fluctuations during the night.


4. Smooth and Gentle Texture:

Tencel bedding is celebrated for its silky and smooth texture, providing a luxurious feel against the skin. This is particularly beneficial for menopausal women who may experience heightened sensitivity or irritation during this life stage. The gentle touch of Tencel can contribute to a more comfortable and soothing sleep experience.


When selecting Tencel fibres, we considered the quality and the thread count, and the fabric's density. Our combination is a softer and more durable product. Tencel fibres comes in various weave types, such as sateen and percale. Phenxx products use a sateen weave which offers a smooth and silky feel.



Hot women navigating the challenges of night sweats and hot flashes deserve a restful and rejuvenating sleep experience. Tencel bedding emerges as a beacon of comfort, offering a unique combination of breathability, moisture management, and eco-friendly credentials. Investing in our Cooling Canvas® range is not just a choice for a good night's sleep; it's a commitment to sustainable and luxurious comfort during a transformative phase of life. Through its sustainable science, Tencel not only provides relief but also contributes to a greener, healthier planet.
