Presentation: the campaigns for both fibers of smartfiber AG ensure emotion and attention
One particular highlight of smartfiber AG´s trade fair presence at the Heimtextil is the presentation of the new customer campaigns for the fibers SeaCell™ and smartcel™ sensitive.
The campaign "The SeaCell™ effect" relies on a combination of expressive images and customized slogans. The individual motifs have been selected to combine key messages of the fiber with appealing illustrations of the fiber's applications. Therefore, each individual customer is being "spoken to" by a specific motif and subject, and can instantly be transported to experience the "SeaCell™ effect". The communication campaign with the slogan "It will surprise you ..." garnered much attention at the New York Home Fashion Market Week in September 2014. The campaign is implemented as a movie, as a brochure, and on posters. It helps the retailer in providing fast, informative, and image-focused advertisements to the customers. The campaign highlights: SeaCell™ is a sustainable fiber with added value, thanks to the very best properties of natural seaweed embedded in it. It offers wellness and anti-aging effects. The fiber is both regeneration and lifestyle, and brings some quality of life back into everyday life. SeaCell™ corresponds to the expectations of modern, active consumers.
The smartcel™ sensitive campaign also corresponds to the expectations of a new generation of consumers who are looking to buy textiles with added value. This is the point of approach for the campaign, under its special slogan: "smartcel™ sensitive – 'The beautification fiber'". Anyone who is conscious of their body, who prefers a sustainable and environmentally friendly way of life, and who expects more from his home textiles, should get to know smartcel™ sensitive! The message of the campaign, presented as a film, shows that smartcel™ sensitive is the natural fiber with the essential trace element zinc. It is modern, patented, awarded with a prize for innovation and developed in Germany. The high-tech fiber combines regenerating and skin-protecting properties through the embedding of the high-quality, natural, and medically approved zinc oxide. The zinc oxide in the fiber also allows for the wearer to be naturally protected from UV radiation and harmful environmental influences. In addition, the fiber reduces unpleasant odors.

SeaCell™: the natural, skin-caring fiber with seaweed addresses an active generation’s modern sense of life
SeaCell™ is well-being for the skin. It provides for protection against environmental influences thanks to the high proportion of health-promoting elements in the seaweed. SeaCell™-fibers contain finely ground Icelandic seaweed from a unique ecosystem. The seaweed is particularly rich in minerals, proteins, trace elements and vitamins. The vital substances of the seaweed are released by the natural skin moisture while wearing the garment. They provide skin care and protection against free radicals. SeaCell™ provides for an unmistakable soft and smooth touch in all textiles. Whoever wears textiles made from SeaCell™ feels the typical wellness effect on the skin and does not want to miss it anymore. SeaCell™ is made of sustainable raw materials and is 100 % USDA organic certified.

smartcel™ sensitive: the cellulose fiber with zinc transforms home textiles into real skincare products
smartcel™ sensitive with the essential trace element zinc offers a cosmetic, regenerative and odor-reducing effect in combination with soft hygiene. The cellulose fiber is characterized by the skin-caring and protecting properties of the inserted zinc oxide. This zinc oxide offers also protection from harmful UV radiation, similar as used in sun blockers. In ointments, powder, baby creams and cosmetic products it supports the natural processes of the skin, fosters the wound healing and fights skin inflammation. In addition, it is effective against bacteria and fungi – like this, it is ideally applicable in home textiles.
