Ingeo literally means ingredients from the earth. It is a balance of humanity nature and technology. The process of creating Ingeo starts with the harvesting of the carbon that plants remove from the air during photosynthesis. Carbon is stored in plant starches which can be broken down into natural plant sugars. The carbon and other elements in these natural sugars are then used to make a series of polymers called polylactide or PLA. The development and manufacturing of PLA relies on basic fermentation and distillation as its core chemical process followed by simple polymerization. Once the resin is converted into a fiber it becomes Ingeo. Ingeo fiber is the worlds first commercially viable synthetic fiber derived entirely from annually renewable natural resources. Ingeo fibers combine the comfortable wear and feel of natural fibers such as cotton wool and silk with the ease of care and specialty performance of synthetics.
The fibers perform as well or better than their conventional synthetic alternatives and offer the added advantage of reduced dependence on fossil fuels. It takes 50% less energy to make Ingeo fiber than to make polyester.
Ingeo provides superior insulation and does not support bacterial growth under normal use conditions. It has a naturally low odor retention and wicks away moisture. It is also very durable with a comfortable lasting loft.
