The clothes of Cellulose and Zinc collection from Skintoskin have constituted a large proportion of textile fiber lyocell, produced from cellulose fibers.

Before describing in detail what are cellulosic fibers, it becomes imperative to identify and classify the textile fibers.

The textile fibers are raw materials which give rise to wires, which are then used in the manufacture of textiles, such as the meshes and the tissues.

There is a wide variety of textile fibers that are divided into 2 major groups: Natural Fibers and non Natural Fibers/Chemical.

The natural fibers are obtained from raw materials which exist in nature, being its origin animal, vegetable or mineral.

The large group of non-natural fibers/chemical is subdivided into other 2 groups:

artificial - are obtained artificial/chemically processed by man, from raw materials which exist in nature (mainly cellulose);

synthetic - produced synthetic/synthesized by raw materials derived from petroleum.

As previously mentioned, the clothes sintoskin have constituted a large percentage of lyocell, produced from cellulose fibers and, for this reason, belonging to the group of regenerated fibers.

The manufacturing process of LYOCELL is initiated with the preparation of the wood pulp (eucalyptus and beech), being this folder, dissolved in a solution of N-oxide metilmorfilina (NMMO) and water. In the next phase, the water of this mixture is evaporated being obtained a pulp very viscous.

Later, this pulp is subject to a passage in holes, fairly thin, a textile device called Spinerette, transforming themselves into filaments that correspond to the lyocell fibers.

The lyocell fiber is classified as a friend of the environment (high ecological nature), given that in the process of obtaining:

- more than 99.5% of the solvents are recovered;

- the resulting effluents are purified;

- the waste can still be used as fertilizer.

The LYOCELL is also a fiber 100% biodegradable!

In addition, this fiber combines the main properties and benefits of various natural and synthetic fibers. Thus, the fiber of lyocell, can be as soft and smooth as silk, as fresh as the flax, as hot as the wool, as tough as the polyester and still has a capacity for absorption of moisture higher than cotton.

The reasons described above justify the choice of lyocell the manufacture of skintoskin clothing!

Through the yarns produced with the fibers of lyocell, get yourself a mesh with an extremely smooth surface, for which reason is guaranteed a touch too soft.

In addition to its smoothness (ideal for sensitive skins atopic, reactive, allergies, etc.), the structure of the LYOCELL is formed by microscopic fibrils with hydrophilic characteristics, causing the moisture of the skin is easily absorbed and transported inside the fiber, allowing either a greater capacity for absorption of moisture, whether excellent properties of cooling.

With the excellent moisture management capacity prevents the development of bacteria on the skin of a completely natural.

The combination of properties of smoothness and moisture management provides users of skintoskin clothing a positive environment for the health of your skin and promotes a sense of well-being!
