Antiseptic effect of chitosan

Cellulose fibre Tencel® C containing chitosan is very fine, soft and velvety-bright. The fibre is able to absorb sweat and moisture by its internal structure.  The fibre is naturally antibacterial and 100% biodegradable.

how does chitosan get into cellulose fibres?

Cellulose is extracted from the wood  and chitosan is added during further processing, i.e. wood pulping phase, but before spinning.  Chitosan comes from the seas, from exoskeleton of crustaceans (such as crabs and shrimp), nowadays it is produced commercially from chitin.

  • anti-inflammatory 
  • biodegradable 
  • antimicrobial, antiseptic
