probiotic based aLLERGEN CONTROL TECHNOLOGY
Purissimo®NTL is a 97% biobased allergen control technology that cleans up pet dander, pollen and dust mite allergens in textiles throughout the home. The technology is based on encapsulated probiotics, which are natural microorganisms similar in kind to those you can find in food like yoghurt and cheese.
As the probiotics consume the allergens, exposure in the environment is gradually reduced below the threshold levels. Therefore, individuals with respiratory allergies will be exposed to fewer ‘attacks’ and perceive a better well-being.
HOW IT WORKS
1. Firstly, dormant probiotic bacteria (spores) are encapsulated. The microcapsule product is then integrated into textiles.
2. Friction opens the capsules and releases the spores.
3. The spores absorb humidity, self-activate and start to multiply.
4. The probiotic bacteria start to consume the allergens that cause allergic reactions and asthma.
5. Due to lower allergen concentration, individuals with respiratory allergies such as house dust mite matter, pet allergens and pollen allergens will have milder to no symptoms and hence a better well-being feeling.
What makes Purissimo®NTL unique and
different from the standard Purissimo range is
the shell of the capsules that is now biobased
as well. The shell of the new capsules is based
on a natural crosslinked biobased polymer.
The capsules are up to 97% biobased and
readily biodegradable (OECD 301B).
The probiotics range and mechanism of
release has not been changed.
