Dcore invests heavily in Polygiene Odor Control Technology

Publish date: 27 sep 2016

After a three-year test period, the Swedish fitness wear clothing brand Dcore is investing heavily in Polygiene Odor Control Technology while expanding its range of workout wear.

The focus on odor control means that the fitness clothing manufacturer Dcore now treats about 90 percent of its workout wear with Polygiene Odor Control Technology. Dcore is primarily known for its high quality gym and fitness apparel sold online. Now Dcore is expanding its product range and complementing online sales clothing with sales through traditional brick-and-mortar retail stores.

“I am really pleased with how well Polygiene works to make our workout clothes odor-free and how environmentally friendly Polygiene is compared to other alternatives,” says Dcore’s CEO Adam Tell, who has been convinced about the efficacy of Polygiene after extensive testing.

The treatment is permanent and lasts at least 100 washes despite the fact that only a very small amount of silver salt is used. Polygiene is the only odor-control supplier that guarantees functionality throughout the lifetime of the garment.

 In addition, Polygiene Odor Control Technology meets the requirements of European Union REACH regulations and certified according to the environment, health and safety standards of bluesign® and Oeko-tex for environment, health and safety issues. A positive environmental impact of using Polygiene-treated workout clothes is that they can be washed less frequently. This helps reduce water and energy consumption as well as fabric wear and tear, making garments last longer.

“Dcore’s investment in Polygiene speaks volumes for our company,” says Christian von Uthmann, CEO, Polygiene. “We value long-term customer relationships and appreciate the strengthening collaboration with a brand of Dcore’s high caliber.”

Polygiene is the global market leader within odor control and has more than 100 international premium brands as its clients, including Adidas, Patagonia, Athleta and Salomon.
