Hot and Cold Compresses

Hot and Cold Compresses

An uniquely design –  the combination of hot or cold reusable compresses with a very comfortable short plush fabric as the exterior, enable it having a very soft and a velour-like hand feels.


The surface of our HOT AND COLD COMPRESSES is made of extra fine quality short plush polyester fabric laminated with heavy gauge polyvinyl chloride sheeting. This makes the pack a very good abrasion resistance, light weight, good mechanical strength and toughness. This also brings it of increased strength, durability, and environmental resistance.  


For more, having short plush polyester surface can provide a very gentle hand feel to the skin, give you an extra comfort. Polyester is in fact very popular among healthcare and athletes for its moisture-wicking properties, strong fibers, and light weight feel. Its strong fibre characteristics undoubtedly increase its wear resistance, while being flexible and resistant to wrinkles and shrinking. 


The unique filler inside is non-toxic biodegradable formulated and filtered BENTONITE CLAY, a natural hydrocolloid filling.


Bentonite clay benefits the body because it has the ability to produce a charge that is electrical in nature when it comes in contact with liquid. When the clay touches any type of fluid (normally water), it takes on a different charge and is thought to bind to any present toxins within the fluid.


While in its natural state, bentonite clay has negatively charged molecules. Most toxins and heavy metals have positively charged molecules. This allows the two to bind together easily and stay united while the toxin removal process happens.


BENTONITE CLAY essentially “seeks” toxins in the body to bind with because naturally any substance that has a missing ion (which gives it its “charge”) looks for oppositely charged types of substances that will make it complete. Upon binding, the clay is then able to help remove toxins, chemicals, impurities and “heavy metals” from the gut, skin and mouth.
