Research is conducted by the first European laboratory in this field, Labo C & T. So far this project which started in 2006 and has as of today a 3-year deadline has managed to set up a protocol of verification - a label of quality is needed - researched new methods of micro-encapsulation, and succeeded in finding the right dosages lasting through a definite number of washes that can be immediately used in commercial cosmetotextiles.
These improved smart textiles will be able to help you slim, hydrate, firm your skin, tan sunless and perfume yourself thanks to active ingredients diffused through the textiles. The clothing afterwards can be used as a standard fashion accessory.
