Fabrics that enhance and deliver sun's therapeutic rays

SunSoul Inc, a Toronto-based company, has developed fabrics - and clothing - that enhance and deliver the sun's therapeutic rays to the skin, treating acne and providing skin rejuvenation as well as delivering ultra-high (50+) UV protection.

The patent pending technology fuses fluorescent compounds to the micro-fibre of the material, resulting in the conversion of harmful UV rays and broad spectrum sunlight into amplified narrow bands of beneficial light when exposed to the sun. The transmitted light can be adjusted to different wavelengths by simply changing the colour of the SunSoul fabric's pigment system. Clinical trials have yielded significant results.

Blumod helps improve the appearance of troubled skin due to acne and yelomod helps rejuvenate damaged or aging skin. Both SunSoul collections offer casual, sports-oriented shirts, tops, caps and visors that deliver their therapeutic benefits when worn in the sun a few hours a week.

"The technology," says Toronto cosmetic plastic surgeon, Dr. Stephen Mulholland, "is revolutionary. It's opening a door to a new realm in the treatment of skin concerns and providing simple solutions that people can take charge of themselves." Dr. Mulholland is a part of the team that created SunSoul.

Using light energy to treat skin disorders is common practice among dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons worldwide. SunSoul's new technology means many more people will now have access to healthier-looking skin without the high cost and inconvenience of time-consuming physician office visits and medical procedures.
