Devan Chemicals, developer of finishing technologies for textiles, will show its latest health and wellness solutions at the Heimtextil show in Frankfurt, Germany. Heimtextil, the largest international trade fair for home and contract textiles, will be held from January 8-11, 2019, at the Messe Frankfurt, where Devan will be seen in booth B28, hall 11.0.
Millions of people suffer from insomnia, insufficient sleep or other sleep disorders. Revitalising the body through sleep is vital for all. To help, Devan has now added cannabidiol, or CBD, to its R-Vital sleep-promoting range of microencapsulated active ingredients that enhance textiles with anti-oxidative effects. This rich CBD tincture or extract has a balancing effect that helps facilitate a good nightâ€™s sleep, Devan said.
Originating from ancient civilisations in Asia, CBD-rich hemp has long been used for its positive health benefits. Devan has succeeded in encapsulating this CBD, which is extracted from hemp, a non-psychoactive type of cannabis.
Devan has applied its expertise to encapsulate active ingredients or extracts such as CBD and valerian root for use in its sleep-promoting R-Vital range of products. These can be applied to everything from bedding to sleepwear fabrics. When the skin touches the fabric, the resulting friction causes the capsules to break, releasing the ingredients to the body. Since skin is our bodyâ€™s largest organ, it is ideal for transporting these ingredients, adding comfort, care, and well-being to the body while sleeping.
Devan has added argan oil to its health and wellness range. Sleeping on a pillow containing argan oil capsules can help to hydrate and nourish the hair and scalp. Devan has leveraged its R-Vital range to create its own blend for specific and unique solutions, including for pillow covers, bed sheets, cover sheets and sleepwear.
During the recent Performance Days fabric trade fair in Munich, a specific member of Devanâ€™s R-Vital range of functional finishes, a blend of â€˜Ubiquinol (Q10), sea kelp and thyme oilâ€™, earned praise from the jury, which awarded it a â€˜100 per cent jury likeâ€™ stamp.
The Q10 blend offers sports recovery through textiles. It reinforces the bodyâ€™s antioxidants, thereby disarming damaging free-radicals and having an overall anti-aging effect. Devan collaborated on development of this product with Japanese pharmaceutical company, Kaneka Corp. (GK)
