Permanent odor control that treks far and wide

Independent tests demonstrate the high efficacy of Polygiene Odor Control Technology against microbes, such as bacteria, viruses and fungi, which makes textiles stay fresh and odor free.

Stay fresh and hygienic
Polygiene neutralizes odor by stopping the growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi.

Effective and permanent
The odor-free effect is guaranteed for the normal lifetime of the product and has been verified through field tests by leading brands as well as independent laboratory tests.

Thanks to the company’s heritage in the healthcare sector, Polygiene Odor Control Technology meets the highest standards for skin safety and hygiene. It does not interfere with the skin’s natural bacterial flora and is approved for use on bandages for open wounds. Polygiene Odor Control Technology is a nano-free solution, with particle sizes several times bigger than the international standard for nano particles.

Climate smart
Polygiene makes clothing, footwear and gear last longer because fibers live longer without bacteria and excessive washing, and treated products are not discarded prematurely due to odor. Because Polygiene-treated apparel and gear stay fresher longer, they require less washing at lower temperatures. Plus you can pack less luggage when you travel, which is also good for the environment.

Polygiene is bluesign® approved, which is the textile industry's demanding environmental certification with a life-cycle approach, and is on the Oeko-Tex® list of approved products. Based on silver salt (silver chloride) made from recycled silver, Polygiene is registered under the EU Biocidal Product Directive and the US Environmental Protection Agency.

How it works
Sweat is odorless but helps create the perfect environment for odor-causing bacteria to multiply. When sweat mixes with odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, odor results.

Polygiene uses naturally occurring silver salt (silver chloride) made from recycled silver, a highly effective antimicrobial agent, to safely inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi. However, Polygiene does not affect the natural bacterial flora of your skin. And without odor-causing bacteria, you stay fresh.

Odor-causing bacteria settles into the material and multiplies
