To create a skin-soothing textile, fabrics can now be impregnated with aloe vera treatment. These are microscopic, airtight and water-resistant. They open to release the gel only when the cloth is touched or rubbed. Basically, every time an infused garment is worn, aloe is applied to the skin. Apart from the skin benefits, aloe vera also adds some interesting features to the fabric itself. It is naturally anti-bacterial; so it not only keeps clothes clean, but also combats body odor.
