 Oxidase
An "oxidase" breaks down unwanted elements within the human body and makes them easier to discharge.  This oxidase protects person's health from various factors within areas such as liver.  There is a substance that functions the same way as this oxidase, which is the phthalocyanine.
 
 
 
Artificial Enzyme
 

 

Phthalocyanine
The phthalocyanine is a blue/green pigment compound that was accidentally synthesised over 100 years ago, which is widely used in road signs and Shinkansen carriages (bullet trains) as organic pigments owing to its rigid non-fading colour characteristics.  Since natural enzymes are delicate and fragile, therefore unsuited for use as product developments, whereas artificial enzymes that utilise metal phthalocyanine are capable of being processed into various manufacturing applications.
 
 
Benefits of artificial enzyme (phthalocyanine)
Furthermore, certain types of phthalocyanines have chemical properties as reactive catalysts.
Proven benefits include:
* Deodorant, antibacterial deodorant
* Anti-allergic substance

Artificial enzyme bound non-woven fabric

There is a fibre that fully exert the functions of artificial enzymes.
A fibre named "AllerCatcher"* was created following an extensive research and development by Daiwabo Co., Ltd based on the study of artificial enzymes carried out  at Shinshu University.

The AllerCatcher actually adsorbs and traps allergens to its fibres on the non-woven fabric.
 
The AllerCatcher have been used in medical and healthcare sectors due to its proven functionality of improving skin problems caused by sensitive skin, and antibacterial deodorant.
 
* AllerCatcher is a patent of Shinshu University and Daiwabo Co., Ltd
