Devan Chemicals’ latest technology, R-Vital Multivitamin, has met the requirements of Standard 100 by Oeko-tex® (Class II). The company, based in Belgium, says the technology is part of Devan’s R-Vital® range of micro-encapsulated active ingredients.
R-Vital is a fabric treatment that enables textile manufacturers to boost their textiles with a patented range of microencapsulated active ingredients. The technology was first launched at Heimtextil in 2018 with active ingredients including Q10, Thyme oil, Aloe Vera and others. The active ingredients are encapsulated and applied to the fabric. When the treated textiles touch the skin, the friction causes the microcapsules to break, and the active ingredients are then absorbed through the skin.
Since its launch, Devan has continued to add new ingredients such as CBD, avocado and echinacea. The latest blend of vitamin C, vitamin E and ginger is designed for immunity-boosting properties. The Covid19 pandemic has also caused people to think about how they can become more resilient and lead a healthy lifestyle, and the company believes a balanced immune system is crucial to good health.
