needessentials wetsuits are manufactured with the highest quality materials and are committed to minimising our impact on the environment. All needessentials liquid taped thermal wetsuits use 360° stretch limestone neoprene offering a more thermally efficient and environmentally sound neoprene compared to traditional petroleum-based neoprene. This is combined with Carbon black recycled rubber derived from recycled rubber from car tyres. This helps to reduce energy consumption and Co2 emissions and ultimately reduces landfill waste. The wetsuit lamination glue is water based and free from harmful chemicals. The whole product process is also overseen by BLUESIGN ensuring the trust and transparency of needessentials product.
