Description

Itofinish LJSYF New is a chitosan basedbantibacterial finishing agent that is exceptionally kind to the skin and can be used to combat a number of skin ailments associated with bacterial infections and drying of the skin.

Chitosan is a natural product found in abundance in the shells of crustacean, such as crabs, lobsters and prawns. Chitosan is extremely safe and nontoxic. Chitosan films interact comfortably with the human body and experiments have shown that chitosan achieves the same or even greater effects than antibiotics against suppuration caused by antibacterial infection.

Chitosan is produced commercially by deacetylation of chitin, which is the structural elemet in the exoskeleton of crustaceans (crabs, shrimp, etc.). Chitosan has many positive properties including, anti-microbial activity, bio-compatibility, lowallergen, high moisture retention and is completely harmless to humans.

Chitosan’s antibacterial properties arise as the chitosan molecule has a strong electrostatic attraction to bacteria. This causes bacterium to become stuck to the chitosan molecule.

Chitosan has been shown to help increase the rate of moisture adsorption/retention of treated fabrics. Sufferers of atopic disease suffer a loss  in epidermal moisture that can be as low as 20% of the value of a healthy person. Chitosan helps to counter this and helps relieve these atopic diseases.
