Biobased allergen control technology launched

What's New? | January 23, 2023 | By:

Belgian producer Devan Chemicals has announced its biobased and readily biodegradable allergen control technology, Purissimo NTL. Allergies have an impact on the quality of life and are associated with other medical conditions. World Bio Market Insights reports that Purissimo NTL is designed to clean up pet dander, pollen and house dust mite allergens in textiles typically found throughout the home. The technology is based on encapsulated probiotics, which are natural microorganisms similar in kind to those found in probiotic food.

The product is based on Devan’s probiotics, which are natural microorganisms, and has now incorporated this technology into a new microcapsule shell. The shell is based on a natural crosslinked biobased polymer, which results in microcapsules that are up to 97 percent biobased and readily biodegradable. Friction opens the capsules and releases the spores. The spores absorb humidity, self-activate and start to multiply, consuming the allergens that cause allergic reactions and asthma. 

The company reports that 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 feeling of well-being. The product can be used on a range of textiles. such as mattresses, pillows, bedcovers and blankets, but also upholstered furniture, carpets, curtains, public transportation and pet items such as bedding.
