Polygiene reported its “best quarter ever,” with sales rising by 11.7 percent to 22.9 million Swedish kronor (€2.27m - $2.63m) and the gross margin rising by 0.5 percentage points to 70.4 percent. The results led to a financial turnaround for the Swedish ingredient brand company, which posted an operating profit of SEK 2.4 million (€233,459 - $275,745) as compared to a loss of SEK 2.0 million (€194,539 - $229,788) in the same period a year ago. The progress was largely due to the success of Polygiene’s patented ViralOff®, a brand for a treatment of textiles and other products that reduces tested viruses by 99 percent in two hours.
