The main causes of odour in textiles are organic carboxylic acids, which embed in fabrics causing persistent or permanent odour. Microban® odour capture technologies form a protective barrier on the fabrics that traps and neutralises body odour, preventing offensive smell during use and between washings. The odour is either washed out during normal laundering or is neutralised after extended use depending on the platform and the fabric is renewed, fresh and ready to be used again.
Are SCENTRY and SCENTRY REVIVE antimicrobials?
They are NOT antimicrobials. They are rather an odour capture technology that forms a protective barrier on fabrics that attracts and traps odour, preventing apparel from giving off an offensive smell during wear and in between washings. During laundering trapped odours are released allowing them to be rinsed clear of the fabric.
Are they sustainable?
Both SCENTRY and SCENTRY REVIVE are bluesign® certified. The bluesign system is the solution textile production, eliminating harmful substances from the beginning of the manufacturing process, setting standards for environmentally friendly and safe production. It unites partners in the textile industry worldwide through managing natural resources responsibly, reducing water and air emissions, improving waste water treatment and generally reducing its ecological footprint.
It might be a shirt, pair of shoes or gym bag. But because of frequent use – and, in some cases, infrequent laundering – those favourites are much more susceptible to developing a foul odour that renders them unwearable or unusable. Even those textiles that can be washed often retain a stench, because washing alone doesn’t effectively neutralise odours that permanently build-up in synthetic textiles. Unfortunately, many of the odour control technologies in the marketplace don’t solve the problem. From inadequate efficacy to production limitations, manufacturers – and ultimately consumers – face compromises related to article life and cost. With SCENTRY and SCENTRY REVIVE, however there are no compromises.
