We have created a new way to administer essential oils, vitamins and cosmeceuticals. Our approach embeds essential oils into any fabric, which releases actives into the skin on contact—yet not into the wash during laundering of the fabric. Our first product, the Nufabrx pillowcase is made of bamboo and infused with clinically proven natural remedies to treat skin blemishes.
There are no current methods to deliver drugs through fabrics while maintaining washability. We have filed two provisional patents and strong patents are likely due to the sophistication of the materials required for delivery. Delivery that is convenient, private, and integrated into everyday clothing and fabric is a natural step in the evolution of pharmaceutics and cosmeceutics. “Dosing” for compliant-problematic groups such as teens, the mentally ill, and elderly can be as automatic as lying down on a pillow.
• No pillowcases on the market have active ingredients designed to treat blemishes.
Our solution is based on proprietary technology utilizing state-of-art nanoparticles combined with temperature-responsive hydrogels. Several layers of IP protect the potential product, which can be designed to release drug at a constant rate even through multiple hot-wash cycles. There is nothing like it currently on the market. A prior art search has been performed. Strong patents are likely.
The first version of the Nufabrx pillowcase is made overseas using different microencapsulation technology and our proprietary essential oil serum. The product will be switched over to our novel hydrogel technology once we have the capital. There are no current pillowcases embedded with essential oils for the treatment of blemishes/acne.

Our company was founded in late 2012 to help make the world just a little better.Together we are leveraging our own unique combination of talents to break ground in the world of Textile-Based Delivery. We have created a new way to administer medications, vitamins, and cosmeceuticals. Our approach embeds medications into any fabric, which releases actives into the skin on contact yet not into the wash. Our flagship product the Nufabrx Pillowcase for Blemish Prone Skin was launched in late 2013.
