Project: Production of Body Care Textiles for Aromatherapy Applications

The AROMATERATEX project builds on the commercial interest of SME Ps in producing and selling of new textiles promoting well-being, by immobilization of biologically active compounds at the substrate surface and development of an efficient environmentally-friendly functionalization bioprocesses for health care and stress management. The target applications are textiles used in close contact with human skin and that could benefit in terms of life quality, by being made of natural products & ecological processes. As a project result, technological knowledge of aromatherapy, biologically active compounds compatible to the textile fabrics and technological way of immobilization will be explained by laboratory simulated industrial process, up to pilot scale application and end-products developments. Application methods of the selected polymer-bioactive compound systems will be optimized from technological, quality, ecological and therapeutically point of view.
