http://www.certex.ro/images/bullet1.gifGENERAL OBJECTIVES:
The main objective of AromaTex project is to produce aromatherapeutic garments (sports and leisure wear) and skin/body care products (dresings and facial masks for microbial infections treatment and cosmetic pads for skin hydration and anti-acne) by using biologically path for essential oils and apiculture products.

http://www.certex.ro/images/bullet1.gifSCIENTIFIC CONCEPT:
The AromaTex project builds on the commercial interest of SME partners in producing and selling of new textiles promoting wellbeing, by immobilization of biologically active compounds at the substrate surface and development of an efficient environmentally friendly functionalization bioprocesses for health care and stress management. The target applications are textiles used in close contact with human skin and that could benefit in terms of life quality, by being made of natural products & ecological processes. As a project results, tehnological knowledge of aromatherapy, biologically active compounds compatible to the textile fabrics and technological way of immobilization will be explained by laboratory simulated industrial process, up to pilot scale application and end-products developments. Application methods of the selected polymer bioactive compound systems will be optimized from technological, quality, ecological and therapeutically point of view.

http://www.certex.ro/images/bullet1.gifTECHNOLOGICAL CHALLENGES:

  • Development of polymer bioactive compound systems with tailored properties to be used for development of aroma therapeutic and skin/body care textiles;
  • Optimization of the polymer bioactive compound systems adapted to an up-scalable technology for depositing on textile fabrics, with a particular focus on therapeutically desired effect and controlled release of essential oils;
  • Prototype pilot scale up and validation of immobilization technology;
  • Production of aroma therapeutic garments and skin/body care end-products.


  • http://www.certex.ro/images/bullet1.gifEXPECTED EXPLOITABLE RESULTS & DELIVERABLES:
  • A set of essential and fixed oils containing active substances & extraction protocol;
  • A set of microparticle systems with controlled release of bioactive compounds & synthesis;
  • A set of hydrogel and emulsions / dispersion systems containing essential oils & synthesis methods;
  • Knitted and woven textile structures compatible to the selected application field.
  • Optimized bioactive compound systems in form of emulsions and microparticles;
  • Optimized technologies for immobilizations of polymer-bioactive compound systems on textile materials;
  • Prototypes of aroma therapeutic microparticles obtained for pilot scale application;
  • Prototypes of emulsions for skin/body care obtained for pilot scale application;
  • Woven/ knitted textile materials prototypes containing aroma therapeutic microparticles and/or emulsions for skin and body care.


  • http://www.certex.ro/images/bullet1.gifRESULTS:
