Sunlighten, the Overland Park, Kansas-based marketer of infrared saunas and portable light therapies, has partnered with Hologenix, headquartered in Pacific Palisades, California.

Infrared responsive textiles infused with Hologenix Celliant now cover Sunlighten’s infrared heaters in all its sauna cabins to maximise every detail of infrared available.

In addition, Sunlighten is introducing new luxury cotton accessories infused with Celliant for those who want to expand the health benefits of infrared and/or enjoy a spa-like experience. The dual-purpose fabric provides added health benefits, as well as comfort, luxury, and practicality both inside and outside the sauna. 

The new Sunlighten Celliant-infused accessories work with the infrared heat of its saunas to amplify the benefits even more.

The Sauna Linen Collection consists of a Celliant/cotton hand towel, bath towel, robe and body wrap.

Celliant’s natural, ethically sourced minerals embedded into yarns transform body heat into full-spectrum infrared energy and return it to the body safely and naturally. Celliant promotes local circulation and cell oxygenation in healthy individuals while keeping the user dry and at the perfect temperature. This results in stronger performance, faster recovery and better sleep.

The only sauna company to offer branded accessories, Sunlighten’s line creates a resort feeling with spa-level luxury and is plush, densely woven and has a heavy 760 gsm weight.

“These luxurious accessories appeal to sauna customers who place a high value on maximizing their time and making the most of their investment,” said Aaron Zack, Sunlighten co-founder and CEO. “Our Celliant-infused fabric works with the sauna’s heat and the body’s natural energy to refuel the body. No other company has more effective infrared, ensuring the infrared penetration into the body for all healing benefits. As soon as I read about Celliant technology, I knew it was perfect for our saunas and accessories.”

Celliant is rigorously tested by a Science Advisory Board composed of experts in the fields of photobiology, nanotechnology, sleep medicine, and diabetes and wound care. The Science Advisory Board has overseen nine peer-reviewed published studies that demonstrate Celliant’s effectiveness and the benefits of infrared energy.
