Cognis Honors Skintex Team With Innovation Award

International specialty chemicals supplier Cognis Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG, Germany, has presented one of three 2006 Cognis Innovation Awards to company employees who developed Skintex® encapsulation.

Developed three years ago, Skintex technology enables apparel manufacturers to treat their products with microcapsules that contain active naturally derived ingredients that are released to the skin at a controlled rate over a fixed amount of time, providing benefits that consumers can feel. The award-winning team has developed this technology to the point where it can be mass-produced in large batches. Skintex is already found in jeans, pants, underwear and T-shirts produced by certain apparel makers.

“Many textile producers regard cosmetotextiles and medical textiles with added, long-lasting functionalities as one of the most important products of the future,” said team member Oliver-Daniel Bogatu, director, business development textile technology. “Our aim is to help them open up new markets through specialty chemicals that combine health and beauty benefits. Skintex is the first branded, effective technology that successfully allows manufacturers to create textiles with lasting functionalities that consumers can really feel.”
