TENCEL® for the body, mind, and soul
Exercise is necessary for physical and mental balance. When it comes to sports which promote active relaxation, the selection of the right textile fibers is critical for comfort and a sense of well-being.
The stress and fast pace of our everyday lives put our well-being at risk. Taking time out to relax and restore our energy levels has become an important part of a healthy lifestyle. TENCEL®, the creation of a holistic feel-good concept, helps establish life balance. With TENCEL®, textiles can be created which contribute to a feeling of well-being. Skin-friendly and eco-friendly, TENCEL® promotes the physical comfort that leads to total relaxation. TENCEL® C, the cosmetic specialty fiber with an integrated oceanic skin care complex, provides additional benefits which make it a true feel-good fiber.
TENCEL® and the specialty fiber TENCEL® C are wellness-fibers for body and mind.
In harmony with nature
TENCEL® is the functional fiber which exists in harmony with Nature. It is botanic in origin since it is extracted from the raw material of wood. Fiber production is eco-friendly due to the closed loop production process. Thus, the textiles are made with respect for mankind and the environment as well.
Where botanic and oceanic join forces
The skin is the largest human organ. Our skin can only be healthy when it is in balance. The specialty fiber TENCEL® C, which features an oceanic skin care complex (chitosan), promotes healthy skin. This specialty fiber helps to alleviate the skin’s daily loss of moisture and promotes health. When used in wellness textiles, TENCEL® C supports overall wellbeing.
Where botanic and functionality join forces
TENCEL® is well known as a performance fiber. Its moisture absorption is enormous and its skin-sensory properties are unparalleled. TENCEL® absorbs up to 50% more moisture than cotton and the smooth fiber structure prevents skin irritations in a completely natural way.
Where botanic and relaxation join forces
TENCEL®’s natural moisture content guarantees complete relaxation. When the surfaces of materials rub against each other, electrostatic charging results. The fiber’s moisture content determines to what extent the materials become charged. High moisture content prevents charging. TENCEL®’s moisture content is about 13% and is much higher than polyester which has no moisture content at all. With clothing of TENCEL®, sports can, therefore, be practiced in a “relaxed” way in the truest sense of the word.
Where botanic and photosynthesis join forces
From wood to fiber, TENCEL® comes from Nature. The fiber makes use of photosynthesis which has been an essential mechanism in Nature since the beginning of time and has constituted the basis for life on earth.
