Our Purishade® is created from polypropylene fibres. This material is a synthetic thermoplastic polymer made from oil and natural gas production. Propylene gas was a waste product from oil and gas plants. In the late 1950s the Italian scientist, Giulio Natta, polymerised propylene gas and produced a plastic polypropylene at commercial cost.
