The Power of Seaweed in a fiber or The "sea and feel" - Idea
The sea – the origin of life full of interesting secrets. A whole host of substances which are nowadays used to promote human health come directly from the sea. Seaweed, for example, is full of valuable ingredients used to promote good health.
This is where the idea of using natural substances to develop a fiber with a beneficial effect came from. This incorporates, of course, active elements from the sea.
Following a period of intensive research, this idea has now been turned into a veritable innovation: cellulose combined with seaweed. What’s amazing about this development is how the seaweed has been permanently incorporated into the fiber, locking the effects of the marine substances into the fiber for good. And that’s great news for you.
The idea behind SeaCell® is really rather simple: a cellulose-based fiber is manufactured using the so-called Lyocell process. This Lyocell fiber then serves as the “functioning substrate” for the seaweed.
Seaweed is added as the active substance for a very good reason. The fact that this marine plant is rich in trace elements has been well known since the times of Chinese medicine, and seaweed has also been proved to protect the skin and have anti-inflammatory properties. It is seaweed which forms the basis of the SeaCell® fiber.
SeaCell® amounts to a great deal: an innovative fiber, forward-looking technology, a modern brand and a progressive company. As a result, the SeaCell® brand is synonymous with top-quality products and modern living. The fiber also stands for the “healthy combination” of perceptible comfort, a wide array of different processing possibilities and the versatility of being combined with other fibers in knitted fabrics, weaves and non-wovens.
Furthermore, the structure of SeaCell® facilitates the active exchange of substances between the fiber and the skin – nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and vitamin E are released by the natural body moisture when the fiber is worn. In addition, the textile’s properties provide other advantages such as breathability and softness. Which means clothes made of SeaCell® stand for well-being through and through.
At one with nature
The SeaCell®-fiber – both the base material and the active substances – is made of wholly renewable raw materials. Cellulose, for example, is the most common natural substance. Seaweed is one of the world’s main sources of oxygen, and all other living marine organisms depend on it for their existence.
Cutting-edge technology is applied to further optimise and refine this excellent basis, to incorporate as many positive properties as possible. This is why the cellulose is extracted by means of the Lyocell process, which is known to be considerably more environmentally friendly and economical than conventional methods. The very latest techniques are used to protect the raw material’s valuable ingredients and the environment.

The good thing about the SeaCell®-fiber is that it comes in two versions with different properties. The pure version stands for the unadulterated effects of the seaweed. The active version with added silver delivers improved effectiveness.
SeaCell® pure - pure pleasure
“Pure” always means unadulterated. And that’s exactly what the SeaCell® pure fiber stands for – the unadulterated effects of the seaweed. Because seawater ingredients are enriched in the seaweed, which explains the high levels of various minerals, trace elements, carbohydrates, fats and vitamins in the fiber.
The seaweed extracts also promote the production of glucosaminoglycans, which not only accelerate the healing process of skin inflammations, but also protect the skin from free radicals (acc. to Alban Muller International).
The seaweed therefore has an activating effect, helping to keep the skin fresh and smooth. Meaning SeaCell® pure is packed with goodness.
SeaCell®-Products - Covering all options
The pure-fiber also has some pleasant surprises up its sleeve and has a proven effect as a cellulose fiber with active seaweed elements. Numerous tests at a wide array of institutes and establishments have examined and verified the long-lasting benefits of the „SeaCell®-effect“.
Whether used as a yarn for clothing or for filling duvets, SeaCell® contributes to a healthy awareness. The “feel-good factor” is virtually inbuilt, and the wearer’s personal well-being regime is activated each and every time they come into contact with the fiber. Many well-known manufacturers use SeaCell®, in some cases even creating whole collections using the well-being fiber. So not only does the fiber feel good; the products look great too.
