SKIN+ is a game-changing technology in skin care, a novel treatment for mattress fabrics based on a patented probiotic technology. No need to spend time in front of the bathroom mirror, applying multiple lotions and creams. Just go to sleep and your mattress does the job, night after night!
How does SKIN+ work?
Our SKIN+ textile contains small capsules with the proprietary probiotic Bacillus indicus PD01. Friction between body and mattress opens the capsules, the probiotics multiply and produce so-called carotenoids, found in tomatoes and watermelons as well. These carotenoids are of the Lycopene type and are ten times more effective as the ones found in the fruits. Caratenoids get airborne and are attracted by our skin, even through sheets and night dresses.
The dosage of SKIN+ is calculated to match the effect of applying a carotenoid skin cream daily. Once the technology is activated, the production of carotenoids keeps going. The microcapsules with the probiotics connect strongly to the textile fibers and withstand up to twenty washings at 40 °C, thus covering the entire lifespan of the mattress.
SKIN+ is a patented technology
SKIN+ is the outcome of an intense co-creation effort by BekaertDeslee Academy, Devan Chemicals and ProDigest, a biotech spinoff company of Ghent University. ProDigest is the winner of the prestigious Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Award for technology companies active in Life Sciences.
The role of carotenoids in human skin is documented in many scientific studies. ProDigest tested and certified that the SKIN+ probiotics produce substantial amounts of carotenoids and that these reach our skin, even if layers of textiles separate the mattress textile and the skin.
