* Belgian firm highlighted health & wellness solutions at the Heimtextil show in Frankfurt
FRANKFURT – Devan Chemicals NV, the Ronse-based developer of finishing technologies for textiles, showcased some of its latest health and wellness solutions at Heimtextil trade show, the world’s largest international trade fair for home and contract textiles held in Frankfurt, Germany, 08-11 January 2019.
For over 40 years, Devan has been providing high-tech finishing chemicals to the worldwide textile markets. Focusing strongly on unique and innovative solutions, research & development is at the heart of the company. Promoting its products professionally is another area of expertise at Devan. That’s why the company takes place in leading shows related to its business field. Devan took its place in Heimtextil at its booth in Hall 11.0.
Millions of people suffer from insomnia, insufficient sleep or other sleep disorders. Revitalizing 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 night’s sleep.
Originating from ancient civilizations 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 body’s largest organ, it is ideal for transporting these ingredients, adding comfort, care and well being to the body while sleeping.
Argan oil from the Moroccan Desert enhances hair care
Berber women in the Moroccan dessert have harvested argan oil for the last 3,500 years, but it has only been discovered by the rest of the world. Especially for Muslim women who wear hijabs, argan oil is an important element in their hair care.
Devan has recently added argan oil to its Health & 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 develop its own blend for specific and unique solutions, including for pillow covers, bed sheets, cover sheets and sleepwear.
Devan’s Q10 blend aids sports recovery through textiles
During the recent Performance Days fabric trade fair in Munich, a specific member of Devan’s R-Vital™ range of functional finishes –– a blend of “Ubiquinol (Q10), sea kelp and thyme oil” –– earned praise from the jury, which awarded it a “100% Jury Like” stamp. That designation means that all members of the jury selected the sample, a recognition granted to only a handful of the 1,400 applications.
The Q10 blend offers sports recovery through textiles. It reinforces the body’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.
The Devan booth in Hall 11 attracted a great deal of interest.
