Overnight skin care

BekaertDeslee introduces SKIN+, a revolutionary biotechnology that turns any mattress or pillow into a skin care product. Just like cosmetic products, SKIN+ repairs and beautifies the skin. The SKIN+ development is the result of an intense co-creation effort by BekaertDeslee Academy, Devan Chemicals and ProDigest.

Today BekaertDeslee introduces SKIN+, a game-changing technology in skin care. SKIN+ is a novel treatment for mattress fabrics that, like lotions and creams, rejuvenates the skin and makes it healthy. SKIN+ takes no effort at all. You go to sleep and your mattress does the job. Anti-aging ingredients help promote firmer skin and a brighter, smoother appearance. The SKIN+ treatment works for you 24/7 and as long as the lifetime of the mattress.

The secret of the treatment is a patented probiotic technology, tested and certified by ProDigest, a Belgian biotech company. The mattress fabrics are treated with specific probiotics, encapsulated in microscopically small bulbs. The SKIN+ probiotics produce carotenoids, anti-oxidants that are also found in the skin of fruit and vegetables. However, the SKIN+ carotenoids are 10 times more active and stable than those found in vegetables and fruit. Substantial amounts of SKIN+ carotenoids go airborne and effortlessly reach your skin through sheets and nightdresses.

The patented SKIN+ technology is the outcome of an intense co-creation effort by BekaertDeslee Academy, Devan Chemicals and ProDigest. ProDigest tested and certified that the SKIN+ probiotics produce substantial amounts of carotenoids and that these reach our skin, even if layers of textiles separate the mattress textile and the skin.


About carotenoids

Carotenoids are natural color pigments and anti-oxidants, known to protect our skin from ultraviolet light and to prevent skin damage caused by aging. They stimulate rejuvenation of the individual skin cells and this has a beneficial effect on the moisture level, softness and smoothness of the skin.
