We are glad that NZICC recently published an article featuring ActivLayr technology in the lead up to the innovation annual event Techweek19. The theme for 2019 is ‘Innovation that is good for the world’.
“The Iguana is a electrospinning machine which manufactures ActivLayr, a skin care product made by Auckland nanofibre producer Revolution Fibres.
The Iguana is a fantastic collaboration between the best Kiwi minds from the science and engineering worlds. It allows Revolution Fibres to increase production to meet demand, but it also means we can grow the production of ActivLayr in New Zealand.
The nanofibre manufacturing process starts with fishing company Sanford supplying hoki skins, from which pure collagen is extracted. Using the process of electrospinning in the Iguana, Revolution Fibres transforms the collagen into nanofibre. During the electrospinning process natural ingredients such as kiwifruit and grapes, and hyaluronic acid (an ingredient to help the skin retain moisture), are infused to create rolls of anti-aging ActivLayr. Needless to say our team here are VERY interested in trying out this new technology!”

Revolution Fibres has already been chosen as keynote for Techweek 2018 as we post here before.
