Hologenix, inventors of Celliant infrared textile technology, has partnered with Kelheim Fibres to introduce a sustainable fiber alternative for performance fabrics.
Celliant is a proprietary blend of natural minerals that gives any textile-based product the ability to capture and convert body heat into full-spectrum infrared (IR) energy, which has been clinically validated to increase local circulation and improve cell oxygenation. This has a number of wellness benefits: including increased energy, strength and endurance, faster recovery from physical activity, better sleep and improved body temperature regulation.
Celliant itself is not a new product, it currently can be found in a number of brands across a number of industries, including Under Armour, Levi’s, Lunya, Bear Mattress, Tecnica, Amazon’s Rivet brand, and many more — Designtex even has a line of upholstery featuring Celliant. What is new is embedding Celliant into a sustainable viscose fiber. Hologenix achieved this breakthrough in partnership with Kelheim Fibres, a leading manufacturer of specialty viscose. The fact that the Celliant is in-fiber is the key to this innovation as it creates a unique fiber that provides full functionality without the need for any additional processing step.
Celliant Viscose promises to be an extremely versatile fiber innovation as it blends well with cotton, micromodal, lyocell, wool varieties (including cashmere), and other fibers. It has Celliant’s core versatility of having many applications across industries and is a natural match for performance wear, luxury loungewear, casual wear and bedding products. Celliant Viscose promises to provide all the benefits of a viscose fiber — lightweight, soft, highly breathable, excellent moisture management — as well as fiber enhancements from the Celliant infrared technology, such as odor-inhibiting and quick-drying.
Nature-based Celliant Viscose is certified by FSC or PEFC, which guarantees the origin in sustainably managed plantations. In addition, Hologenix’s partner, Kelheim Fibres, was awarded a green shirt in Canopy’s 2020 Hot Button Ranking.
3 key features of Celliant Viscose:
- Celliant Viscose is a unique fiber that provides full infrared functionality without the need for any additional processing step, which is environmentally and cost effective.
- Certified by FSC or PEFC, which guarantees the origin of the viscose material in sustainably managed plantations.
- Celliant Viscose captures and converts body heat into full-spectrum infrared energy, which has been clinically validated to increase local circulation and improve cell oxygenation. This has a number of wellness benefits, including increased energy, strength and endurance, faster recovery from physical activity, better sleep and improved body temperature regulation.
