Recently you may have seen the word Tencel® popping up on the labels of your clothes more and more, and yet find yourself wondering what exactly is it?
Tencel® is a sustainable botanic fibre, made from the harvesting of Eucalyptus Trees, using the collected wood pulp in a “closed-loop” manufacturing process. Eucalyptus is fast generating and grown without the use of harmful chemicals, making Tencel® both ecofriendly and safe for you.
Tencel® vs. Organic Cotton
While cotton may feel beautiful on your skin, during manufacturing it can be exposed to up to 2000 chemicals. Tencel® by Lenzing, however, is free from these harmful chemicals, adhering to much stricter regulation, produced using only non-toxic organic chemicals.
Tencel’s soft and light fabrication also absorbs up to 70% more water than cotton allowing a dry and comfortable fit. The fibres of Tencel® make it near impossible for bacteria to grow and are more hypoallergenic than cotton. No static charge also means the fabric does not attract dust, dust mites, and other particles.
