The DreamSkin® polymer is based on the same technology used for contact lenses. The biomimetic copolymer matrix forms a multi-layered membrane around each individual strand of silk. This means that every individual strand yarn in DreamSkin® garments contributes to its ability to mimic healthy skin. The DreamSkin® molecule is applied to textiles by nano-sphere dispersion. DreamSkin® technology creates a firm bond between fibres and chemical at a nano level. During the drying process the molecules reorders into a lamella structure, which is similar in structure to the polar group of phospholipids in the human cell membrane.
The multi-layer lamella structure formed with these polymers is both hydrophobic and hydrophilic. The hydrophobic element provides an external barrier effect against irritants (effectively displacing other molecules from either attaching to the fabric or from dispersing through
fabric during use) and the hydrophilic provides a moisture retaining and enhancing property.
