Polygiene® Odor Resist Technology

Give your gear a workout–it'll stay fresh and clean.

Polartec Fabrics with Polygiene® effectively combat body odor by inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria in the fabric. Polygiene® Odor Resist Technology is a silver-salt treatment that permanently binds to the fibers of a fabric. It is nonleaching and safe. Polygiene is bluesign approved and qualifies for Oeko-tex 100 certification. The silver in Polygiene is 100% recycled, recovered from recycled electronics.

This system differs from yarn-based silver ion delivery systems which extrude silver ion containing particles into the yarn. Those leave a majority of the active ingredient (silver chloride) trapped inside the yarn where it cannot perform. The silver-salt in Polygiene works because silver physically disables the growth of bacteria. Silver salt technologies require a tiny amount of silver to be highly effective. This differs from chemical products to which bacteria can build a tolerance.
