Polygiene in
Sport & Outdoor

Innovative antibacterial sportswear technology

Intense workouts and sustained physical activity create the perfect conditions for bacterial growth. The combination of sweat, heat and grime can result in significant problems with odor-causing bacteria, leaving users uncomfortable, unconfident and dealing with unpleasant smells in their sportswear. 

Polygiene Freshness solutions are the perfect odor-eliminating sportswear technology. By targeting the sources of odor directly, they keep sports clothing fresher for longer, enabling athletes to go harder, further and longer without worrying about smelling.

    Polygiene tech stops smells at the source, so you enjoy odor-free confidence.

  • Wear more, wash less

    Odor-control means less washing, saving consumers water, energy, money, and time.

  • Freshness for life

    Because it is IN textiles, not on them, Polygiene tech lasts for most products’ entire lifetime.

  • From consumables to durables

    Long-lasting textiles are more sustainable. And that’s what we all want, right?

Benefits

Sustainable sports clothing technology

Our odor-eliminating sports clothing technology means users can wash their sportswear less frequently, saving them time, money, water and energy. Less frequent washing also extends product lifespan, resulting in better value for consumers. As well as delivering extensive performance benefits, Polygiene antibacterial sportswear technology reduces your products’ environmental impact, enabling you to position your brand as a sustainable choice.

The technology

Tested and certified. Polygiene is scientifically proven!

Polygiene StayFresh™ and Polygiene OdorCrunch™. Polygiene StayFresh™ prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria and microbes, reducing unpleasant odors. Polygiene OdorCrunch™ is a natural odor-absorbing treatment that eliminates nasty smells like body odor, cooking fumes, and smoke. Polygiene technologies can be combined and used together safely to further enhance odor-control performance.

We are accredited by bluesign®, an organization that promotes consumer safety, low-impact manufacturing and responsible resource use. We also received the Oeko-Tex Eco-Passport certification recognizing we utilize responsible manufacturing and supply chains. Finally, we are compliant with REACH, the EU’s chemicals legislation. Polygiene has received several accolades from the Scandinavian Outdoor Group Awards.

Odor-control technology means textiles stay fresher for longer and consumers don’t have to wash them as frequently. Less washing means products last longer and don’t need replacing as often. Long-lasting garments are more sustainable and represent better value for end-users.

Additionally, because our technologies are added during manufacturing, application requires no additional energy or water, minimizing Polygiene technology’s environmental impact. When you partner with Polygiene, we help you communicate that message to consumers, ensuring your brand benefits from being more sustainable!
