The Reviv weighted blanket was created by a team of entrepreneurs in California, who wanted to improve the way they relax. After trying several different blankets, they realized that nothing on the market was exactly what they wanted. So they decided to create their own blanket.
Reviv is the first weighted blanket to be made with Lyocell Nanotechnology. Lyocell is a man-made, natural fiber created from wood pulp derived from sustainable tree farms. This textile is made through nanotechnology in a closed-loop process that decomposes or recovers all solvents and emissions. The use of this technology means that the Reviv blanket is eco-friendly, thermoregulated, hypoallergenic and antibacterial.
The Reviv blanket promises to relax your central nervous system by imitating the feeling of deep pressure or being hugged. The feeling of being hugged is known to decrease the body’s stress hormone, cortisol, and increase the body’s production of serotonin and melatonin. The result is that a person feels calmer, their mood improves, they have reduced anxiety, and they achieve a deeper sleep.
Reviv achieves the feeling of deep pressure with smooth glass beads. The beads are sewn in pockets to evenly distribute weight across the user’s body. Additionally, each blanket has a removable machine washable cover that is available in five colors.
The Reviv blanket also claims to be thermoregulated. This means that the blanket will keep the user warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Furthermore, the removable cover is made from 100% Lyocell Bamboo, which means the cover doesn’t need washing as often because Lyocell Bamboo is odor resistant, fungal resistant and bacteria resistant.
Reviv offers five weight options and five cover color options. The blanket is available in 8 lbs, 12 lbs, 15 lbs, 20 lbs, and 25 lbs. Reviv recommends that users select a blanket that is 10% of their body weight. This means that if the user is 150 lbs, they should select the 15 lb blanket. Additionally, if two users are going to share the same blanket, it’s recommended that couples choose a weight that falls in the middle of their two weights. For example, if one person is 115 lbs and the other is 185 lbs, then a good choice would be 15 lbs.
The core set of the Reviv product package is a Reviv blanket and cover. Reviv also offers two additional options.
- For $44, customers get two standard pillowcases and a cover in the color of their choice.
- For $49, customers get two King-size pillowcases and a cover in the color of their choice.
