Main characteristics of CRABYON
a. The CRABYON underwear,
which 11 testees wore during the clinical
test, is made of 30% CRABYON / 70% cotton
fabric. Treatment and sewing were done by
the process now commercially available on
The test period of January to March,
1996, was dry and cold when people were
susceptible to cold, so we must admit
that the time was rather unfavorable for
us to determine whether the underwear
served to alleviate the symptom of atopic
All 11 testees were selected from among
those who have relatively stable, slight
to less symptomes to atopic dermatitis
and who can see the doctor regularly.
b. Among the 11 testees, there
was one testee whose symptom subsided
considerably, one testee whose skin conditions
improved, four testees whose skin conditions
improved and two testees whose symptoms
of atopic dermatitis could not be evaluated
accurately because (1) one of them developed
the sympto, of ashtma, being in bad physical
condition, (2) one of them changed medicines,
making it difficult to determine the effectiveness
of the CRABYON underwear and (3) a mother
who was too conscious of her child's atopic
dermatitis overdosed her child, hoping
it might improve the skin condition.
Even after considering the existence of
such a mother, more than half of the 11
testees somewhat improved in skin conditions
and one testee improved considerably;
we think that the underwear is effective
in improving the patients of atopic dermatitis.
c. All the CRABYON underwear used
in clinical tests was dyed with fluorescent
dyes and made with conventional sewing
process. Some of the 11 testees parents
said that, since the CRABYON underwear
was soft to the skin even after repeated
washings, they were able to use it without
of plant disease-resistance
Moistened cucumber seeds were planted on rock
wool bed, bark block bed, CRABYON-non-woven
fabric bed in a glass-house.
After two weeks plant disease bacteria, Phytophorame
Langeae, was inoculated into cucumbers and
resistance was checked one week after inoculation.
As is shown in the photograph, CRABYON bed
proved to be more resistant to the disease
than other beds.
So long as CRABYON is made of organic material.
Chitin/Chitosan and cellulose, its biodegradability
is excellent. It begins to be decomposed by
bacteria 2 weeks to 2 months after being buried
underground, which is almost the same as in
the case of natural fallen leaves.
