SeaCell™ – The power of seaweed in a fiber
The unique properties of seaweed help to protect our skin against the harmful environmental influences which we are exposed to in our daily lives. The seaweed is pure and rich in essential substances such as vitamins, trace elements, amino acids and minerals.
The substances found in seaweed help to activate cell regeneration, which in turn can help to relieve skin diseases, reduce inflammation and soothe itchiness. Its high level of antioxidants protects the skin against harmful free radicals, which damage our skin cells.
The natural moisture level of the skin enables an active exchange of those beneficial substances between the fiber and the skin, providing a noticeable sense of wellbeing.
SeaCell™ is produced using the Lyocell process, an innovative and eco-friendly production method. Production takes place in a closed loop with no chemicals released as waste. This meets the expectations of our industry both today and in the future. It is one reason why the European Union awarded the procedure with the 2000 European Environmental Award in the category “technology for sustainable development”.
The high tech fibers are produced exclusively for smartfiber AG on modern fiber production plants at Lenzing AG in Austria. A highly specialized team of engineers and scientists supervises the production process on site.
The patented process embeds the seaweed firmly within a natural cellulose fiber. As a result, the positive properties of the seaweed are permanently preserved within the fiber, even after multiple washing cycles.
If you are looking for an environmentally sound fiber that offers maximum comfort together with benefits for both mind and body, SeaCell™ is the natural choice.
The fiber is suitable for a vast range of applications, from sport and fashion clothing, underwear and loungewear to home textiles, and combines easily with any other fiber.
It adds a smooth, silky feel to any fabric, together with the comfort and care elements required from a generation with an active, health-conscious lifestyle.
In response to the increasingly harmful impacts of our environment, and after years of intensive research, smartfiber AG has succeeded in developing SeaCell™, a fiber made from renewable resources.
The dried seaweed is crushed,
finely ground and incorporated into
a cellulose fiber. The fiber can be
used to make materials suitable for
a wide range of applications.
The fiber is produced exclusively from sustainable raw materials – wood and seaweed – using methods that save both energy and resources. The fiber is carbon neutral and completely biodegradable.
Harvesting of the seaweed is a gentle, selective and, most importantly, sustainable process. It removes only the part of the seaweed that is able to regenerate. The seaweed is entirely untreated and all its ecological value is retained.
