Swedish company Polygiene supplies treatments that ensure that garments, footwear, gear and textiles stay fresh and last longer. Currently, Polygiene provides three main technologies: Polygiene BioStatic™ an antimicrobial technology that inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria created from sweat, heat or humidity; Odor Crunch™ which removes any environmental odors such as cooking fumes or cigarette smoke; and Polygiene ViralOff™ an antimicrobial treatment that reduces over 99% of microbes in a treated material or product.
In November 2021, Italian denim brand Diesel® launched a new project designed to extend the life of its products by allowing consumers to keep them in active use for years.
It is becoming increasingly clear how important changing consumer behavior is to achieve reductions in the environmental impact of textile and apparel products. Many brands are now turning to the Swedish firm Polygiene® for technologies that help provide a solution.
