Materials science company LifeLabs announced a $6 million Series Seed 3 financing round led by Asia Green Fund, bringing total funding to $13.8 million.
Based in Sunnyvale, CA, LifeLabs launched in October 2021 with body temperature regulating apparel.
The collection of sustainable everyday and outdoor wear, sleepwear, and bedding feature its patented fabric with recycled materials that cool body temperature or retain heat. LifeLab’s flagship line includes CoolLife, which rapidly releases up to 40 percent of the body’s infrared radiation, creating less need for air coolers, and WarmLife, which uses reflective technology to offer warmth with fewer materials.
“With LifeLabs, we aim to create a massive disruption to how we think about and use personal energy,” said Dr. Yi Cui, Stanford professor of Materials Science and Engineering and co-founder of LifeLabs. “Our patented fabric not only feels amazing on the skin, but it performs with the body to create a system of performance and design that regulates temperature. This is a game-changer in textile innovation.”
Earlier this month, LifeLabs added the Everyday Cooling T-Shirt to its line of CoolLife products.
Dr. Bo Bai, chairman and founder of Asia Green Fund said, “We strongly believe technology advancements will make a huge impact in the fight against the climate crisis by empowering the individual to reduce personal energy usage. AGF is pleased to partner with Dr. Cui and LifeLabs in such a mission-critical endeavor toward global carbon neutrality.”
