Composite Fiber of Chitin 'Chitosati and
Cellulose: Only one in the world
Chitin/Chitosan, natural substance, nowadays
attracts a lot of attention in the field of
medicine and food for improving human health.
We, OMIKENSHI, have established a commercial
process to produce Chitin/Chitosan solution
without using organic solvent and commercialized
production of fiber under the brand name of
CRABYON by co-extruding with cellulose viscose.
One point is its high function. It is known
that Chitin/Chitosan is biologically produced
on the earth in large quantities and that
Chitin/Chitosan has many excellent properties.
Major and basic function is activation of
LYSOZYME and CHITINASE, enzymes which decompose
cell membrane and inhibit growth of disease
bacteria. Through this function natural bio
system is kept well balanced and human body
is protected against disease bacteria and
The other point is its safety. So long as
Chitin is 100% natural, it is quite a safe
substance and safety is well verified through
oral intake and dermal absorption tests. This
is quite and dermal absorption tests. This
is quite different from the other organic
and inorganic functional materials now in
These two points are key elements bar Chitin/Chitosan.
In the worsening environment of the earth,
it is quite essential to rely on the natural
substance such as CRABYON for improving human
