Biofunctional textiles are a new discipline in the scientific field. This field of research has evolved very much as a result of the need to create materials that function biologically on the human skin.

With the advance of investigation in this area, the development of nano-technology to handle this task has been highly promising.

Specialists in textiles and medicine have shown that biofunctionality is possible in the production of textiles specifically in the area of dermatology.

As textiles interact with the skin very intensively, the microorganisms of the skin can be influenced by them, and vice-versa.

The current interest in biofunctional textiles is thus focused on their use for therapy and prevention in dermatology.

The textiles of the future will be woven with transporter molecules capable of absorbing substances from the skin and freeing therapeutical composites or cosmetics to the skin.
