What is Special about TENCEL™ ?
🌱 Botanical Origin: TENCEL™Lyocell is derived from sustainable wood sources and harvested from certified and controlled sources (*derived from sustainable managed wood sources/forests) under stringent Lenzing guidelines. TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres have gained a reputation for their environmentally responsible "close loop" production process This process recycles solvents and process water at a recovery rate of more than 99% and has received the European Award for the Environment and certified as Bio-based by the USDA
♻️ Biodegradable: TENCEL™ help to maintain the environmental balance by being integrated into nature´s cycle. The fibers originate from the renewable raw material wood, created by photosynthesis. The certified biobased fibers are manufactured using an environmentally responsible production process. The fibers are certified as compostable and biodegradable, and thus can fully revert back to nature.
💨 Breathability: TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres have a higher vapor uptake than cotton with a fibre structure that regulates absorption and release of moisture. This is what contributes to its superior breathability and natural body temperature regulation.
🖐 Gentle on Skin: TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres are naturally soft to the touch. Under an electron microscope the fibres exhibit a smooth surface area, giving the fabrics the soft feel and comfort for sensitive skin.
