- implies a continuous skin care by large-scale transfer of vitamin E acetate (α-tocopheryl acetate) on human skin.
- Vitamin E has special properties:
- To capture free radicals
- To repair and to regenerate damaged skin surface
- To support the moisture regulation of the human skin.
- Release of vitamin E turns into a life-long effect.
- Textiles, which have a close contact to the body, getting an unknown importance for care and well-being.
- Other active substances such as natural oils or medicines can be incorporated into the cellulosic structure besides vitamin E.
Launch of a new anti-aging
- Materials with contact to human skin have to be declared regard to cell damage or growth.
- In-vitro cytotoxicity of DL-tocopherol fibres according to DIN 10993-5.
- Human HaCa-T-Keratinocyte cell line with complete epidermal differentiation capacity.
->Lyocell staple fibers show no cytotoxicity meaning improved proliferation of human cells can be expected.
Washing and bleaching durability of yarn
- After 100 washing cycles at 60°C even 60 % of the initial tocopherol content can be detected.
- Reactive dyeing lowers the content to ca. 70 %, after 100 washing cycles of dyed yarn contains ca. 40 % of initial tocopherol.
