New independent test results show that the allergen control technology from the supplier of specialty chemicals Devan Chemicals NV, Ronse/Belgium, has shown high effectiveness against pollen. The technology, Purissimo, had already been proven to significantly reduce the amount of allergens from house dust mites and pets (cats and dogs).
Purissimo technology is based on encapsulated probiotics, which are naturally occurring microorganisms similar in kind to those found in probiotic yogurt, tempeh, kombucha, etc. Inactive probiotics (spores) are encapsulated and integrated onto home textiles. Friction opens the microcapsules and releases the spores. The spores absorb humidity and self-activate. They are transformed into probiotic bacteria that start to consume the allergens.
As the probiotics consume the allergens, exposure is gradually reduced to below threshold levels. Therefore, individuals with respiratory allergies will be exposed to fewer ‘attacks’ and perceive a better well-being.
