ABOUT POLYGIENEWHAT WE DO AND OUR IMPACT
We supply treatments for different materials. Our treatments make sure garments, footwear, gear and textiles stay fresh longer. Because they don’t have to be washed as often as regular products, they last longer. We do not manufacture fabrics or products.
Currently, we work with three technologies. Polygiene® BioStatic inhibits bacterial growth and reduces the incidences of body odor caused by sweat. Polygiene OdorCrunch ‘crunches’ odor molecules to eliminate odors like cooking fumes and cigarette smoke that come from the outside. Polygiene ViralOff is a treatment for materials and products that reduces tested viruses by over 99% as per the international standard ISO18184:2019 (SARS-CoV-2, H3N2, H1N1).
We want to change the way we view products – from fast consumables to durables.
We have two broad objectives that drive everything we do – To be the leading global brand in stays fresh technologies, and to champion a sustainability initiative towards less waste through changed consumer behavior.
The apparel industry is among the most environmentally demanding on the planet. The clothes we wash each week are responsible for environmental pollution. Every time, we launder clothing, detergent residue and microfibers wash right out into our rivers and oceans. Washing clothes is also resource intensive – it takes a lot of water and power. And frequent washing also shortens the life of our clothes.
Around the world, consumers are becoming more environmentally conscious. They want to support brands that are aligned with their personal values. To stay relevant, more and more brands are now embracing environmental responsibility. The Lifestyle and Sport & Outdoor industry are no different. They too have tuned in to consumer conversations around sustainability and are stepping up their game to offer eco-friendlier alternatives to conscious consumers who want to pick ‘clean and green’.
This is great news for us. Because our technology and products help apparel and footwear brands make their products viable for conscious shoppers. Our ‘Wear More. Wash Less.’ concept promotes sustainability by significantly reducing water and energy use. It’s a win-win-win situation – for our customers, for the planet and for us.
