The technology


Polygiene StayFreshBio™ is a groundbreaking, 100% plant-based antimicrobial finish for textiles that is proven to inhibit the growth of microbes by up to 99.99%. ​ ​

Polygiene StayFreshBio is not only highly effective in reducing odor in textiles and garments, but it also contributes to reducing the environmental impact of garments as wearers can wear them more and wash them less. ​


The science

Taking sustainability to new heights

Polygiene StayFreshBIO keeps products fresh and hygienic for longer. Products treated with our antimicrobial and antibacterial finish can be washed less frequently, enabling them to last longer. A prolonged lifetime is the major contributor to a reduced environmental footprint and a more sustainable product.​

The active ingredient in our antimicrobial textile technology is based on a natural organic acid that is widely used in the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries.

Yes, repeatedly. The functionality of PolygieneStayFreshBIO is tested to various standards such as ISO, AATCC, IBRG, and JIS-L. All tests are
performed at independent laboratories around the world. We also undertake ongoing quality control tests and environmental and wearer trials.

Yes. It can be effectively recycled together with other textiles.


Mindful Living is inside everything we do

With reduced washing frequency and the use of gentler detergents, there’s a notable decrease in water consumption, CO2 emissions, energy usage, and time invested.

Moreover, there’s no need for premature disposal of textiles due to odor or microbial concerns. This approach also curtails the amount of detergents and microplastics finding their way into our oceans.
