What is CRABYON?
Composite Fiber of Chitin 'Chitosati and
Cellulose: Only one in the world
Chitin/Chitosan, natural substance, nowadays
attracts a lot of attention in the field of
medicine and food for improving human health.
We, OMIKENSHI, have established a commercial
process to produce Chitin/Chitosan solution
without using organic solvent and commercialized
production of fiber under the brand name of
CRABYON by co-extruding with cellulose viscose.
One point is its high
function. It is known that Chitin/Chitosan
is biologically produced on the earth in
large quantities and that Chitin/Chitosan
has many excellent properties. Major and
basic function is activation of LYSOZYME
and CHITINASE, enzymes which decompose cell
membrane and inhibit growth of disease bacteria.
Through this function natural bio system
is kept well balanced and human body is
protected against disease bacteria and toxic
The other point is its safety. So long as
Chitin is 100% natural, it is quite a safe
substance and safety is well verified through
oral intake and dermal absorption tests.
This is quite and dermal absorption tests.
This is quite different from the other organic
and inorganic functional materials now in
These two points are key elements bar Chitin/Chitosan.
In the worsening environment of the earth,
it is quite essential to rely on the natural
substance such as CRABYON for improving
