New products help consumers sleep better
Today’s always-on, digitally-obsessed youth are losing sleep to the endless scroll. With the knowledge that a good night’s sleep is vital for health, modern consumers are reaching for products that can help them attain a restful slumber and prepare them for daytime productivity.
If ingestible sleep aids aren’t your jam, Klova could be the solution. The company has developed the Sleep ZPatch, a topical patch that can help improve sleep, thus enhancing not only wearers’ nights but also their everyday experiences and interactions. These transdermal patches are infused with sustainably-sourced, all-natural ingredients—such as hops, valerian, L-theanine, melatonin, magnesium, and skullcap—that help promote sound slumber and improve one’s overall wellbeing. The patch is designed to slowly release nutrients throughout the night for up to eight hours of sleep assistance and may also be helpful for getting over jetlag.
The PEGASI Smart Sleep Glasses II promise to improve sleep quality without the use of medication or invasive treatments. The wearable tech uses light therapy to help users overcome their sleep irregularities. The glasses emit a specific wavelength of green light that is supposed to help stimulate the production of melatonin, the hormone that induces sleep, and regulate the body’s circadian rhythms. When worn for 30 minutes every day between 7am and 9am, sleep patterns can improve within seven days. The company launched a Kickstarter to fund the production of the innovative sleep technology and exceeded its goal of $10,000 by a whopping $106,695.
Personal care brand This Works is making power naps a priority. With the knowledge that a planned short sleep can help fight tiredness and provide an energy boost, the brand released a new product just for napping called Sleep Power Nap Spray. The fast-acting formula is made with natural ingredients, including lavender, vetiver, and chamomile, and can be sprayed on a pillow and inhaled. The natural sleep aid helps people nod off quickly so they can wake up refreshed and ready to power through the rest of the day. Products like this that help enable sleep and maximize productivity resonate among today’s always-on youth.
