Coenzyme Q10 was discovered in 1957 at the University of Wisconsin and for years was considered a miracle cure in the battle against cell ageing. New studies have now found, however, that the body needs to convert the coenzyme before it can actually make use of it. Ubiquinol is precisely this converted form of coenzyme Q10 and is it therefore much quicker and easier for the body to exploit its benefits. Devan Chemicals, a Belgian textile technology and chemicals company has celebrated a world premiere at Heimtextil in 2018: The company is now able to coat textiles with Ubiquinol using its new R-Vital product.
To do this, the enzyme is added on or in the textiles in microcapsules and the fabrics are then made into bed linen or outerwear. Movement, for example rubbing, causes the microcapsules to burst and release Ubiquinol, which enters the body directly through the skin – our biggest organ – and can then perform its task. Coenzyme Q10 is found in the human organism, in particular in the heart, liver and kidneys. In healthy people, self-synthesis ensures that the body has the required amount of Q10. As we age, however, this dynamic declines and the ageing process accelerates.
Devan Chemicals promises that treating textiles with R-Vital offers an ‘extra dose of protection’ against free radicals, the ageing process, damaging environmental influences or the effects of UV. Giving you some real beauty sleep!
The Devan Group develops and produces highly specialist chemicals for making ‘intelligent’ textiles: fire-resistant, antibacterial, heat-regulating, anti-allergenic or scented are just some of the attributes that these textiles can have.
