INVISTA, IFF Enter Consumer Textile Alliance

INVISTA Apparel, Wilmington, Del., recently entered into a non-equity alliance with New York City-based International Flavors and Fragrances Inc. (IFF), a designer and producer of flavors and fragrances. The companies plan to develop well-being and cosmetic benefits in apparel. The alliance specifically will target Invista's Body Care by Lycra® brand a year-old line of fibers and fabrics that enable massaging and moisturizing benefits and freshness to be incorporated into clothing by merging IFF's encapsulation and delivery knowledge with Invistas fiber and fabric resources.

"By converging textile science with other technologies, we will be able to offer consumers significant new benefits," said Bill Ghitis, president, Invista Apparel.
