Researchers at the Hohenstein Institute in Germany have developed a textile finish that provides a sensory cooling effect, which is based on p-menthane derivatives or also called agonists such as N-ethyl-p-menthane-3-carboxamide or L-menthyl lactate and icilin, and is different from the cooling effect normally achieved by physical processes.

“These substances have the advantage that, when spread in very low concentrations on small areas of the body, they have a lasting mild cooling effect throughout their period of activity,” Hohenstein said.

This kind of sensory cooling textile finish was tested on different textile substrates made from natural or synthetic fibres and blends, and in concentrations of the active ingredient ranging from 0.1-1 per cent.

According to the German textile testing agency, these substances trigger a stronger cooling sensation, are odour neutral and have a longer-lasting effect and so, can be used for therapeutic purposes. (AR)
