Supracor's Stimulite® honeycomb featured in Parisian fashion line

SAN JOSE, CA, August 3, 2006—Combining fashion and function, the innovative Rykiel Karma Body and Soul collection debuts Supracor's Stimulite honeycomb bath and footwear products in Sonia Rykiel boutiques in Paris.

Created by Sonia's daughter, Natalie, Rykiel Karma Body & Soul features Yoga mats, towels, swimming goggles and other accessories for promoting health and well-being. Visually attractive, tactile and engineered for comfort, Supracor's honeycomb bath products and massaging flip-flops are the perfect fit for the new collection.

"Supracor captures the artistic and functional nature of flexible honeycomb in its lifestyle products to relax the body," said Susan Wilson, director of Research, Design and Development. "Rykiel demonstrates that technology can be both functional and beautiful."

Sonia Rykiel, crowned "The Queen of Knitwear", was the first to design a dress without hems, use fabrics inside out, write on her sweaters, and set many other ongoing fashion trends. Supracor technology you can get comfortable with® is the first to give flexibility to aerospace honeycomb, starting a new trend of applying honeycomb to lifestyle products. Fashion follows function in Rykiel Karma Body & Soul, a new collection built for comfort.

Designed to exfoliate and rejuvenate, Supracor's Stimulite honeycomb Bath Mitt, Body Scrubber and Spa Cells® Facial Sponge stimulate blood flow to promote cellular renewal. The flexing action of the honeycomb cells exfoliates the skin while their massaging action helps to eliminate the toxins that produce cellulite.

Stimulite honeycomb bath sets are available in Rykiel's signature black color in a striped, black and white pattern. Naturally antibacterial, antifungal and mildew resistant, they give freshness and glamour to the bathroom. Rykiel's stylish black flip-flops rely on Stimulite honeycomb to stimulate and exercise feet while keeping them cool.

Supracor is the originator of flexible, fusion-bonded honeycomb, a revolutionary new technology applied to products that ensure the health and safety of people and animals. Initially applied to wheelchair cushions and hospital mattresses for pressure sore prevention, Supracor's Stimulite honeycomb is the basis of revolutionary line of personal care products that are clean, safe and uniquely comfortable. All of Supracor's products are made in San Jose's Silicon Valley from American-made, recyclable materials.
