Ocean Day Capsule
The 8th of June marks Ocean Day and this year, we’ve been looking at the great big blue from a different perspective, examining the beauty of its natural resources and how we can integrate them into our collections.
Made from conscious materials
PYRATEX® cosmetic VI is a new fabric made of crushed, ground seaweed and eucalyptus wood cellulose. It is a 100% organic fiber, free of toxins, completely biodegradable, carbon neutral, and OEKO-Tex® 100 certified, with amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for the skin.
Developed by PYRATEX®, the seaweed used is harvested in a selective sustainable process from the fjords in Iceland, in locations with no waste or pollution from ship traffic. The process is gentle, using blades that do not cause damage, and only remove the part of the seaweed that regenerates.
