After being diagnosed with cancer over 2 years ago, and experiencing constant overheating throughout chemotherapy, I started sourcing and testing over 30 different cooling fabrics before perfecting and bringing the Chilly Towel to life in 2015.
Prior to my diagnosis, I was initially sourcing a towel that would keep me cool after the gym, but I have since discovered this product can assist people for various reasons from overheating; fevers, hot flushes, medical conditions, bad circulation, menopause and sports & heat stress.
Due to the unique hyper-evaporative fibres in the Chilly Towel, this unique towel becomes cooler than ambient air when wet, which enables the towel to maintain a temperature that feels cool to the skin. The fibres retain water, which provides cooling relief while staying dry to touch for hours.
One of the main symptoms throughout my illness was night sweats which also occurred during the day. While I am extremely pleased to say I have fought my cancer battle and won, I still experience this ongoing side effect from the chemotherapy. I use the Chilly Towel to assist with my overheating on a daily basis.
Being diagnosed with, and beating cancer has given me strength to strive for something positive in my life. My dream is to share this fantastic, affordable quality product that can assist so many people who are going through similar experiences.
Since launching the Chilly Towel, we've been fortunate enough to be featured in magazines and television and we have had an overwhelming response by our customers who have shared their own story about how much the Chilly Towel has improved their daily life.
Chilly Towel is stocked in pharmacies around Australia but we are spreading our wings and expanding! Become a stockist.
You can follow our journey and updates on Facebook and Instagram, I'd love to see you there!
