Polygiene

How it works
Sweat is a natural response to any physical activity. Sweat is natural and odorless but mixed with textiles it creates a moist and warm environment which is ideal for odor causing bacteria to multiply and grow. It is the bad odor released by the bacteria which leads to the reduced self confidence in 90% of us and which causes 30% of us to discard clothes prematurely.

Polygiene Odor Control Technology
Polygiene prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi at the source, permanently. To do this Polygiene uses low concentrations of silver salt (silver chloride), which has antimicrobial properties and is naturally present in
water and soil, to safely eliminate the ability for bacteria and fungi to grow. The permanent treatment is applied at the finishing stages of textile production and field and lab tests show a high level of odor control beyond the usual
lifespan of a garment. This lifespan odor control is possible as the technology is bound and permanently integrated in the fabric and will not wash out. Polygiene silver salt technology is only active on the textiles itself and with a heritage in the healthcare sector Polygiene has applied its expertise and testing to ensure that there is no affect on the natural bacterial flora of the skin. Polygiene is not nanosilver.
