Lenzing launches lyocell fibres with Dry technology

The VEOCELâ„¢ branded lyocell fibres are soft to touch and provide a dry feeling when applied within top sheets in personal care products. They provide hydrophobic characteristics whilst being biodegradable and compostable.

Lenzing, Austria

The VEOCEL brand
from Lenzing announced the launch of lyocell fibres, with patented Dry
technology, which is naturally smooth and gentle on skin, ensuring comfort for
sensitive skin. The new VEOCEL branded lyocell fibres can provide a high level
of comfort, softness and dryness when applied within top sheets in personal
care products.

While most
hydrophobic fibres are fossil-based, Dry technology by Lenzing allows
cellulosic VEOCEL branded lyocell fibres to achieve similar liquid-controlling
properties built on biodegradable, botanic-derived material. The fibres are
beneficial for applications that have direct contact with skin, such as in
femcare and period care products, adult incontinence products and baby diapers.

Jürgen Eizinger,
Vice President of Global Nonwovens Business, Lenzing, said, “We have observed a
growing trend of consumers who are mindful of product ingredients, so we
created a product that can offer both sustainability and performance. Our new
VEOCEL Lyocell fibres with Dry technology are certified biodegradable and
compostable – therefore, offering an eco-friendly and quality alternative to
fossil-based materials. The VEOCEL brand is continually expanding its
capacities and innovations for wood-based speciality fibres as a means to
reduce the industry’s reliance on fossil-based materials in personal care

The sustainability drive comes from the rising number of
eco-conscious consumers, who are acutely aware of the environmental impact of
disposable products and are searching for products that are better for the
environment. Consumers are increasingly favouring products that are
eco-friendly in baby and femcare products. To meet this growing demand and
lessen the impact on the environment, VEOCEL
branded fibres
are certified biodegradable and compostable under various
