Climate change and pollution are the main battles led by the Nations nowadays. The pollution of the atmosphere is progressively compromising the protection of the ozone layer, facilitating the pas-sage of ultraviolet rays, reducing the possibility of absorbing the precious FIR, instead increasing the harmful effects on human health.

Based on these needs, Resistex® Bioceramic has created a yarn able to guarantee total well-being to the body. By analyzing in depth those features, weare going to see that two of them in particular are very useful to protect the body from the pollution.

UV Factor

Prolonged exposure of the skin to ultraviolet rays increases the risk of skin cancer and can cause erythema and burns. The UV-A rays penetrate through the epidermis in good percentage and, reaching directly the dermis, they damage the fibrous tissues causing drying and premature aging of the skin.
The UV-B rays instead are totally absorbed by the epidermis subjecting it to the risk of burns, stains and irritations. The epidermis produces, in fact, an important protective pigment: melanin.
Because of the damage caused to the cells that produce this substance we can experience the appearance of permanent spots on the skin.

The range of Resistex® Bioceramic yarns can be used in various sectors due to their extraordinary qualities. Resistex® Bioceramic, thanks to its characteristics of protection from UV-A rays (main cause of damage to fibrous tissues, drying and premature aging of the skin) and UV-B rays (absorbed by the skin and subjecting it to burns), and its extraordinary characteristic of reproducing FIR (far infrared rays), able to stimulate the micro circulatory system, finds multiple ap-plications in:

  • Socks and sportwear;
  • Underwear;
  • Blankets;
  • Mattresses;
  • Casual clothing;
  • Knitwear;
  • Bed sheets.
