Choosing a natural yoga mat doesn't mean you are 100% safe, as some parts of the mat might still be made with these toxic materials. It also could have been manufactured using harmful chemicals that are then released into the environment. Fortunately, Sharklet provides the newest innovation, producing sustainable, chemical-free, non-toxic yoga mats.
Introduction to the Sharklet Materials
Sharklet’s goal is to reduce the use of toxic chemicals in antibacterial applications, and to prevent the evolution of antibiotic-resistant bacteria by applying a nature-inspired strategy that has been effective in antifouling for millions of years. Inspired by the patterns of shark skin, Sharklet alters surface texture to achieve microbial control. Sharklet technology helps prevent microorganisms from colonizing and growing on the surface. Sharklet inhibits bacterial contamination with advanced micro-patterned surface technology. Aside from its ability to inhibit bacteria growth and even limit transfer of viruses by touch, it can also reduce the transmission of harmful microorganisms. Different from chemical disinfectants and antibacterial products, Sharklet protects users from bacterial infections by design only. Sharklet is particularly suitable for medical devices and consumer products, especially those with frequent and direct contact with hands and fingers.
No Harsh Chemicals
The hygienic properties of Sharklet are purely structural, which is now applied to yoga mats to ensure clean and enjoyable workout sessions. Its surface, made up of an array of ridges so tiny that they appear flat to the eye, is designed to keep microorganisms from latching on. It can help you stay clean with a naturally designed protection for all your fitness exercises. It is highly durable, flexible, and gives you a natural-feeling.
