Wellbeing might not be found only in pills, potions and lotions, it could also be in the clothes you wear. Everyone knows that the right clothes make you look good. But now they can make you feel good too – and it’s not just the fleeting sensation of retail therapy either. SKINTEX® active care from Pulcra Chemicals means clothes that provide a sense of wellbeing that you can really feel, from your nose to your toes.

A highly sophisticated fabric ingredient, SKINTEX® helps take gentle care of your tired feet, release your body from the stresses of everyday life with invigorating aromas, and give you velvety soft skin. In fact, it can even banish the mosquitoes when you’re on holiday. And that’s not all. If washed according to instructions, SKINTEX® lasts several washes.



SKINTEX® insect repellent contains highly effective and well proven ingredients that have been successfully used as mosquito repellent for decades. The slightest change in the weather and they are there in swarms: mosquitoes and midges. Scented candles, creams and electric zappers are barely enough to deter them from eating us alive. And if you like being in the great outdoors, then you have little choice but to keep reapplying cream from tip to toe – or be bitten. Until SKINTEX® fabrics containing SKINTEX® insect repellent mean you don’t have to worry about a cream wearing off. In fact, everywhere that your body is covered by SKINTEX® fabric you are protected against the annoying little pests. SKINTEX® protection can be applied to a variety of materials and is effective against mosquitoes and more.



  • Protection against mosquitoes built into your clothes
  • Safe and well tested repellents
  • Contains well-known effective ingredients

How does it work? The principle is simple: The SKINTEX® microcapsules are embedded into the fabric.These are lled with high-grade ingredients and, over time, they are slowly released onto your skin.
The contents of the microcapsules include well-known skincare ingredients and aromatic fragrances. This means that as long as you are wearing your clothes, your skin will be looked after and you’ll feel good too. Every fabric, be it a natural or synthetic material, can be  tted with SKINTEX®. What’s more, this can be achieved through existing manufacturing processes – so there is no need to buy additional machines to incorporate SKINTEX® into your fabrics.



A study conducted in Hamburg showed that after only two days of using SKINTEX®, the appearance of the skin is visibly improved. Twelve testers wore SKINTEX® socks for eight hours and two days. Each time they wore a SKINTEX® treated sock on one leg and an untreated one on the other. The research found that 67% of the test subjects loved the product and 56 % would buy it immediately. (The test was conducted using knee-high socks equipped with SKINTEX®made of a mixture of cotton, polyamide and elastane.)
