Tencel fiber finds new applications in cancer-care
Oct '09
Tencel, which is a natural raw material made from wood pulp and is 100 percent biodegradable and the wood that is used to produce the Tencel fiber comes from tree farms that practice sustainability, has found a new taker.

RoyallWear dba Jazzy Johnnys, is a organisation dedicated to providing cancer and long term care patients with an attractive, well designed garment that is comfortable, stylish, easy-to-use and accessible to healthcare professionals.

Lenzing Fibers, the producers of Tencel and RoyallWear dba Jazzy Johnnys have announced a marketing tie-up. Royall has chosen Tencel for their new line of cancer patient wear for its anti-wicking, anti-moisture and temperature-sensitive properties that keep moisture off the skin and inhibit bacterial growth.

Tencel contains no toxic substances and is suitable for baby's wear as well as adults. In addition to the medical benefits of the fabric it is also as strong as polyester but eco-friendly and suitable for sensitive skin, soft to the touch, and easy to maintain.

According to recent dermatological studies, patients wearing clothing made from Tencel experienced a markedly improved sense of comfort and a feeling of well-being. Royall recognizes the significance of improved patient-wear.
