smartcel sensitive

smartcel sensitive 


smartcelsensitive: developed to the state
of the art – usable in all textile sectors

The antibacterial effect is triggered when the skin gives off moisture (sweat), and an active exchange is produced between the fibers and the skin. The same applies during the washing process. As zinc is a component of skin building enzymes, it acts directly on the skin and does not have to be transported to the skin first – thanks to the smartcelsensitive fibers. smartcelsensitive is also wash fast, effective over a long period and meets international standards on purity.

The advantage of smartcelsensitive at a glance:
  • The first antibacterial natural fiber with the essential trace element zinc
  • Protects and cares for the skin
  • No nanotechnology, no aggressive chemicals
  • Even works with wool blends!
  • Washes very well and can be dyed in all colours, including white
  • Patented technology, effective in the long term (functional permanence)
  • Constant release of zinc onto the skin

Zink oxide properties
smartcelsensitive contains pharma grade 4 zinc white – a pharmaceutically pure zinc oxide produced from metallic zinc. It meets DAB 10 purity requirements and other international regulations
for the preparation of pharmaceuticals. It is used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, dental chemistry and nutritional supplements, among others.

The University of Jena Clinic for Dermatology and Dermatological Allergy, quality certified to JIS L 1902:2002, confirmed in test report no.: 2/2009 „… the highly antibacterial effect…“ of smartcelsensitive fibers.


smartcelsensitive: the sheer sensation
of gentle purity – thanks to zinc

Natural zinc fibers: gentle care for the skin

The largest organ in the human body is the skin. Its many tasks include sensory perception, but also protection from cold and heat as well as forming the boundary between the body and the environment. As the body‘s protective barrier, the skin is particularly susceptible to conditions such as neurodermatitis, psoriasis or allergies. In order to support the skin‘s protective function, special
care and the correct textiles are important. smartcelsensitive fibers administer health-promoting care, cosmetic maintenance and antibacterial effects in one. They contain the essential trace element zinc, which protects the skin in the long term even when textiles containing smartcelsensitive are just worn.

Zinc: an ubiquitous mineral with vital importance for the skin

Zinc is a real elixir of life. It has a decisive influence on our well-being like few other nutrients. It is present everywhere in the body and is of critical importance for the core functions of the body. It strengthens the immune system (the body‘s defenses) but also sensory functions and fertility.

The decisive role of zinc in nutrition is well-known: As an essential component of over 100 enzymes, it contributes to the digestion and utilization of fats, proteins and carbohydrates and is closely involved in energy production. Oysters, for example, offer an elegant extra portion of zinc. They contain ten times more of this „body fuel“ than other foods. As an important component of other nutritional supplements, zinc prevents symptoms of deficiency in the long term.

However, zinc also has a vital function for the skin. It helps to defend against infection in the long term and to heal inflammation and wounds. Zinc-containing creams and cosmetic care products which are applied to the skin often promote healing. Skin like pearl is the result of the natural elixir of beauty – as zinc is the substance which naturally makes pearls shine. This is where smartcel™ sensitive fibers take effect. Textiles containing these novel zinc fibers allow natural, soft and pure skin care with an additional antibacterial and odour-reducing effect – which can be used in all textiles.

The antibacterial and protective effects of zinc – incorporated in one natural fiber


smartcelsensitive – the antibacterial, protective fiber the textile industry has been waiting for!

Because the zinc fibers promise pure luxury for the skin. Ideally, this totally natural fiber can be used in all textiles. This is because the patented fiber production method completely dispenses with chemicals which would otherwise be necessary to make the effect of the zinc on the skin possible. The snow-white zinc oxide used allows the textiles to be dyed in all colours, including white!

The incorporation of zinc elements in the smartcelsensitive fibers also means that the build-up of odour and bacteria is kept decisively at bay. The antibacterial effect of zinc is based on the „oligodynamic effect“, which describes a disruption in the bacterial metabolism. The cell membrane is altered and the exchange of substances with the environment is made more difficult.

the intelligent world of smart polymers directly to your business. 

We combine our unique, self developed functional fiber with various different functional polymers to manufacture products with out-of-the-ordinary and astonishing properties. The functional fiber is made from cellulose using a modified ALCERU® production process*. Both the biogenetic raw material and the production process are environment-friendly, and the fibers are biodegradable. The ALCERU ® technology is the result of scientific research and development by the Thüringische Institut für Textil- und Kunststoff-Forschung (Thüringen Institute for Textile and Plastics Research - TITK) in Rudolstadt. This innovation combines the familiar advantages of cellulose fibers, such as wearing comfort and optimal moisture absorption, with functional properties such as bioactivity and comfortable temperature adjustment. Overall, smartcelTM functional fiber is characterized by high ecological quality and resource conservation, excellent suitability for textile processing, wide versatility in application and high efficiency combined with an extremely good cost/performance ratio.

*The ALCERU® process is a protected registered trademark of the Thüringen Institute for Textile and Plastics Research (TITK) and is the name of an original and patented manufacturing process. For further information on the ALCERU® process please refer to the website www.titk.de .
