The Power of Silver

Sweat is a natural response to any physical activity. The cooling and heat dispersing actions of up to 2.6 million sweat glands in the average human body are essential to help us perform and keep us comfortable. Sweat is natural, but mixed with textiles, the sweat creates an environment which is ideal for bacteria and fungus to multiply and grow. To combat this, our towels are treated with Polygiene “Stays Fresh” technology, an antimicrobial fabric treatment that uses low concentrations of silver salt to prevent the growth of bacteria at the source. The benefits of using Polygiene are as follows:

  • Antimicrobial – Prevents the growth and spread of bacteria, fungi and mould
  • Odour resistant – Prevents odours caused by bacteria
  • Stays fresh – No need to wash after every use
  • Long Lasting - Does not wash out and remains effective on the towel for its lifetime. 
  • Safe for all skin types - Polygiene is only active on the surface of the towel and does not interfere with bacteria naturally found on the skin, even after long periods of time.
