PYRATEX® cosmetic fabrics are made with seaweed-based fiber. It has an anti oxidative capacity which eliminates free radicals while caring for the wearer's skin.
The seaweed comes from the Northern Atlantic, and has anti oxidant properties certified by European laboratories.
Seaweed is pure and rich in essential substances such as vitamins, trace elements, amino acids and minerals. The skin’s natural moisture level enables an active exchange of these substances, activating cell regeneration, which in turn can help relieve skin diseases, reduce inflammation and soothe itchiness.
The seaweed is harvested from the sparsely populated fjords of Iceland, in a gentle, selective and sustainable process, which only removes the part of the seaweed that is able to regenerate.
Seaweed fiber is carbon neutral, produced in a closed loop, with no chemicals released as waste, exclusively from sustainable raw materials – wood and seaweed – using methods that save both energy and resources.
The seaweed is washed, dried, carefully ground and added to eucalyptus wood cellulose NMMO solution: The positive properties of seaweed are permanently preserved within the final fiber, even after multiple washing cycles.
