What Is The Difference Between Sanitized and Sterilized Goose Down?

If you have ever had a goose blanket or fur pillow, or perhaps smelled a little fire, chances are the goose down is not properly cleaned at the factory level and you get a lower product.

People are not allergic to geese and fur. They are allergic to what is left under the goose and feathers.

People aren't really allergic to geese, geese, or fleece - it's what's left of the geese before they fill in the blankets or pillows that people are allergic to.

This may sound bad, but things like dust mites, fine feathers, fats and oils are very commonly served under ingredients. They are things that, when not washed, cause allergies and reactions in some people. They are the things that cause odor in goose products.

When the goose down is being washed incorrectly at the factory level and allergies arise from some products, most people mistakenly associate the allergy as being directly related to the goose down and the filling. Because many people are unaware of these facts, they consider it a goose down they are allergic to.

If you feel uncomfortable, or are allergic to what you think is a goose, there are many ways you can avoid future reactions. Everyone comes to choose the right product.

I can assure you that you are not allergic to properly cleaned and cleaned ingredients. When the goose down is properly cleaned and sterilized, it becomes "completely hypo-allergenic". This type of milk is completely stripped of all allergic substances and treated with heat to be completely sterile before being put into a blanket or pillow cushion.

Another thing to look for is a "proven" shell. The steel shell is not leaking. Nothing goes in, nothing comes out. When a truly hypo-allergenic goose is put into the shell below, you are guaranteed an allergy-free product.

Some of the suspects are products that are said to be "washed". There is a difference between the words "sanitized" and "sterilized".

- Sanitation is a chemical treatment. It can be used in times where the goose down is not cleaned to a completely hypoallergenic standard. By spraying chemical sanitizer into a goose down, the manufacturer simply solves the allergy issue, not resolves it.

- Downstream geese sterilization is a result of heat treatment over time. The top end manufacturer will wash the geese down until it is free of all dust, dander and mites. Then they will heat the geese in a commercial commercial dryer until the temperature exceeds 120 degrees Celsius. When the goose is heated to such a temperature, it is held there for at least 30 minutes ensuring sterilization of the goose down the material.

Because of this major difference, the purified geese cannot be considered "True" Hippoallergenic Winds, and therefore, are of lower quality, much cheaper products that sterilize geese.

According to North American standards, there are many requirements that a goose down must meet to be considered a hypoallergenic goose. The minimum industry standard for turbidity is 500mm. Major manufacturers in the industry set their own internal strength standards at 800mm to ensure proper hipoallergenic goose down.

In another article, I'll explain exactly what "Turmoil" is and how it is calculated. Another specification of hygiene that I will mention is "Oxygen Number". These are two of the biggest specifications that determine the quality of the material to fill your geese.

As you can see, there are many factors that contribute to the hygiene and quality of a really hypoallergenic goose, and it's important that you be aware of these factors when buying your next luxury goose, blanket, pillow or underwear.

Don't be fooled by companies claiming their geese are allergic free when they do not throw away their allergic ingredients! Stay informed, live well.
