Devan Chemicals, a Belgian-headquartered developer of finishing technologies for textiles, has launched a new product line of revitalising agents, which are designed to enable textiles manufacturers to boost their textiles and offer health and wellness to consumers.

“In our daily lives, we are confronted with energy loss, sleep deprivation, ageing, allergens, pollution, UV damage, you name it. Devan has found a way to boost the textiles we sleep on, so they can help to reduce negative impacts from outside and enhance our wellbeing,” the company explains.

The patented encapsulation technology has been developed to enable Devan to create the right blend for the required purpose – environmentally safe and skin-friendly.

Skin care through textiles

With ageing, our bodies’ natural protection against free radicals declines. R-Vital textile treatments can help to strengthen our bodies natural defences against free radicals, according to the manufacturer.

“Our skin is the largest organ in our body. The treated textiles touch our skin. The revitalising ingredients enter inside our bodies and become active. Devan R-vital will boost textiles with a range of ingredients, such as anti-oxidants, that offer extra protection against free radicals, ageing, pollution, UV,” the company says.

The treated textiles contain encapsulated ingredients like Ubiquinol, the advanced CoQ10. The content of the capsules is said to be set free through the movement of our bodies and can be absorbed by the skin and transported throughout the body where the anti-oxidants will disarm free radicals and complement other anti-oxidants.
