ZINC OXIDE - Nourishing and protective textiles for your skin.
Zinc oxide has proven its worth as a finishing agent in clothing, and SMARTFIBER has succeeded in embedding the zinc oxide directly in the lyocell fiber in order to benefit from the full potential of the zinc oxide. By incorporating it into the fiber, SMARTCEL prevents loss of effect through the washing process, as is the case with conventional finishes.
Zinc oxide produces unique physical and chemical properties in the textile. Due to the anti-inflammatory effect of zinc oxide, SMARTCEL textiles are protective and caring for the skin. In addition, zinc oxide has an odor-reducing effect and, especially in combination with breathable Lyocell, contributes to wearer comfort. In addition, the potential in biomedical applications is considered high due to the antimicrobial properties and UV protection.
