Geethadevi R and Maheshwari V

Increasing global competition in textiles has created many challenges in finishing criteria. The impact of UV rays on human skin leads to skin cancer, skin inflammation and sunburn. An innovative approach was made to introducing new novel eco-friendly herbal oil treated UV protective finish on Bamboo 100%, Tencel 100% and Bamboo/Tencel 50:50 fabrics. The three herbal oils were selected and treated on all the three fabrics. The fabrics are taken for UV test using a spectrophotometer. The untreated and treated fabrics are then evaluated. The result showed that Grape fruit oil enhance the UV protective property when compared to other oils in Bamboo & Tencel fabrics.
