Celliant is a natural blend of IR-generating bio-ceramic minerals, which, when embedded into textiles, allows them to convert body heat into infrared energy, returning it to the body and temporarily increasing local circulation and cellular oxygenation. This aids significantly in muscle recovery, increases endurance and improves overall performance in healthy individuals, among other benefits.
Repreve recycled performance fiber consists of high-quality fibers made from 100% recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and pre-consumer waste. It is also certified and traceable with Unifi’s U Trust verification and FiberPrint technology, which provide assurance that the product comes from recycled materials. Compared to virgin fiber, Repreve helps to offset the use of petroleum, conserving water and energy and emitting fewer greenhouse gasses.
