Nature abounds in fibrous materials -- many obtainable from animals, plants and mineral sources are used in our daily items. Cellulosic types such as cotton, wood, bamboo are common materials used in towels and other textiles.
Synthetic fibers generally come in plant-based and mineral-based. While mineral-based (eg.polyester, polypropylene) might take hundreds of years to decompose, plants-based are mostly biodegradable and recyclable.
Cotton Fiber (U-line products)
Cotton is widely used in various fields including textile products and medical supplies. As agricultural crops, it is eco-friendly for its high regenerability. For problematic skin, we recommend our premium facial towel for its safety since cotton fiber is time-tested in the medical field.
Viscose/rayon (D-line products)
Rayon is a regenerated cellulose fiber made from natural sources of cellulose, such as wood or cotton waste. It is a common and cheaper alternative to cotton. Comparatively, viscose fibers break more easily than cotton when out through wet conditions.
Soy fiber is a sustainable material made from by-products of soy food, and processed into fibre through a “closed-loop” system using organic chemicals. It is known as “vegetable cashmere” for its soft and drapeable texture. In turns of moisture absorption, it has similar performance, but with better moisture transmission than cotton. Moreover, it has antibacterial qualities, exhibiting great performance at microorganism inhibition.
Bamboo fiber is a cellulosic fiber that is regenerated from the plant bamboo. It is a great prospective green fiber with outstanding biodegradable textile material, having strength comparable to conventional glass fibers.
For any skincare routine, the cleaning tools are inevitable in touch with your skin on a daily basis. We believe that the ingredients of those tools should not be overlooked. After having carefully studied fibers and non-woven fabrics, especially their properties such as strength, pliability, elasticity, absorbency, permeability and antibacterial activity. We designed our products with the most materials for the respective functions.
