Our job is to eliminate odor in different ways, using methods that are gentle on people and the environment, either by stopping the growth of bacteria or by capturing and breaking down odor molecules – so you get fresh-all- day confidence, can use your products more and wash them less. This is part of the solution to one of the big environmental challenges. With no odor and less washing, you save water, energy, time and waste – and not least, the product itself.
We want you to wear clothes more than once before washing. We know it works – try it!
Today we have two different technologies, as well as a combination of the two. We are constantly working on new and developed solutions to fulfill and broaden our overall promise of Polygiene Stays Fresh® and Wear More Wash Less. More technologies are on the way.
1. Polygiene BioStatic™ Stays Fresh technology – Odor control based on a silver salt solution. Put on a t-shirt and bacteria soon start thriving and multiplying which makes the t-shirt smell. Any attempt to hide, delay or absorb odor will fail unless you deal with the basic problem: bacterial growth. This odor-control technology inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria and stops the odor at the source, permanently.
Polygiene BioStatic™ Stays Fresh technology inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria and, stops the odor at the source, permanently.
2. Polygiene OdorCrunch™ Stays Fresh technology – natural odor control based on sand. A product that consists of the main ingredient in sand (silica) and stops odors from environmental factors, such as cocking fumes etc. The odor molecules are efficiently captured and permanently eliminated – keeping the product fresh, reducing the need to wash, and therefore making it last longer. *
3. Polygiene BioStatic™ and Polygiene OdorCrunch™ Stays Fresh technologies combined. Combining these two technologies – stopping the growth of odor-causing bacteria and cracking environmental odors to stop the smell – is truly providing a full coverage stays fresh effect and a sustainable solution to today’s environmental issues of products. Products and garments will feel fresh and clean despite sweaty conditions and smelly environments.
