TENCEL®Skin – Feel nature pamper your skin

ANEX Korea, June 2012 – Lenzing announces the first product made of TENCEL® which is specifically designed for the application in face masks.

The use of face masks is well established in Asia, being an indispensible part of a skin care regime for millions of men and women. This trend is now spreading globally with consumers in the U.S. and Europe also becoming aware of the benefits. Top international brands are developing extensive product portfolios featuring advanced skin care products. The key to any face mask application is the mask substrate. That is why Lenzing launches TENCEL®Skin.

Wolfgang Plasser, Vice President and General Manager Business Unit Nonwovens, says: “We are constantly seeking exciting new end uses for our sustainable fibers, as well as developing new fiber types. Lenzing, as a leader in fiber innovation, makes considerable investments each year in research and development. TENCEL®Skin resulting from our R&D work is the choice for the next generation of face mask products.”

TENCEL(R)Skin is a natural product which is bio-degradable and compostable. The cellulose fibers featuring the highest possible level of purity are made from the renewable raw material wood which is sourced from responsibly managed forests. The unique nano-fibril structure of TENCEL®Skin provides optimum compatibility with lotion.

“TENCEL®Skin is the quality choice in face mask application. Its gentle and smooth surface provides unrivalled comfort to end users,” says Elisabeth Stanger, Global Marketing Director Business Unit Nonwovens. “Lenzing is delighted to offer this new innovation to the health and beauty industry. Feel nature pamper your skin!”
