Polygiene All Natural Silver Salt
What is Polygiene?
Polygiene® antimicrobial fabric finish is the industry leader in bacteria control technology which uses silver salt made from recycled silver to treat high-performance textiles and other materials. Engineered to give wearers fresh-all-day confidence, Polygiene is perfect for active people who demand natural, long-lasting odor protection. This Scandinavian product is already popular in Europe and North America and has been adopted by prominent brands.
How Does Polygiene Work?
The natural silver salt in Polygiene active odor control treatment inhibits and guards against the growth of odors from microbial causes such as bacteria, fungus and mildew. It gives treated fabrics an odor-inhibiting effect that lasts for the lifetime of the garment and keeps it fresh. Polygiene also prolongs garment and gear lifetime, since the products are treated to resist deterioration by mold fungus and odor causing bacteria.
Is Polygiene Safe Next to the Skin?
Active only on the fabric surface, Polygiene does not interfere with bacteria naturally occurring on the skin. Textile-based products including apparel, footwear and accessories treated with Polygiene are safe to use next to your skin**. Polygiene particles are also many times bigger than nano-silver particles and therefore too large to penetrate to deeper skin levels.
** In accordance with extensive human skin irritation and sensitization studies conducted using OECD, FDA and EU standards.
Is Polygiene Safer for the Environment?
Innovative and eco-conscious, Polygiene uses extremely low concentrations of natural silver salt made from recycled silver to minimize impact on the world’s natural resources.
