This innovative new yoga collection is made from a blend of cotton, elastane and SeaCell, a patented fiber from seaweed which has long been used in spas for its beneficial effects on the skin. Natural body moisture helps release seaweed’s nutritional minerals and vitamins, including Vitamin A and E, cartinoid and amino acids to promote skin renewal. In addition, because the fabric contains silver, the porous SeaCell fibers help neutralize odors and wick sweat. And the pieces are comfortable and durable to boot. A great way to treat your skin while working out your body.
