Devan R-Vital treatment meets Oeko-tex Standard 100

The technology is part of the company’s range of microencapsulated active ingredients and consists of vitamin C, vitamin E and ginger

Devan’s R-Vital Multivitamin textile treatment meets the requirements of the Standard 100 by Oeko-tex (Class II).

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused people to think about how they can become more resilient and lead a healthy lifestyle. A balanced immune system is crucial and depends on how healthy we are, both mentally and physically, Devan suggests. To that end, providing products and services which allow consumers to become healthier is key. In a McKinsey & Company survey, 75% of respondents in China want to eat more healthily after the crisis.

The multivitamin blend is part of the R-Vital range. R-Vital is a fabric treatment that enables textile manufacturers to boost their textiles with a patented range of microencapsulated active ingredients. The technology was first launched at Heimtextil in 2018 with active ingredients including Q10, Thyme oil, Aloe Vera, and more. Active ingredients are encapsulated and applied to the fabric. When the treated textiles touch skin and the friction causes the microcapsules to break, the active ingredients are absorbed by the skin, Devan says.

Since its launch in 2018, the company has added ingredients such as CBD, Avocado and Echinacea. The latest blend contains vitamin C, vitamin E and ginger and is designed for immunity-boosting properties. Recently, the treatment has been found suitable for Standard 100 by Oeko-tex.
