Zinc is a natural component of the earth's crust, being present in rock, soil, and water. Zinc is also an essential element of the human body and is especially beneficial to the skin.
Modern Zinc has discovered a way to harness the power of Zinc into the sheets you sleep in. Zinc is not only beneficial to human health. It possesses antibacterial properties to inhibit odors and provides skin care benefits.
Smartcell Sensitive® is a brand new fabric innovation with two years of development. We source these high-tech Zinc infused fibers from Smartfiber®, a German-based research firm. To manufacture Zinc fibers, Smartfiber® uses a patented Lyocell process to spin Zinc into textile fibers. Using this process means the Zinc will remain active at all times, even after 60+ washes.
The Zinc that has been integrated into the fibers acts directly on the skin. Rigorous testing at Hohenstein Institute in Germany confirmed the transfer of Zinc from the fabric to the skin. Testing in accordance with AATCC 100 showed strong antibacterial activity.
The fiber is environmentally friendly, eco-friendly and biodegradable. It is certified (for baby products) Oeko-Tex ® Standard 100, class 1.
