Dutch cycling apparel brand AGU is dedicated to improving the experience of cyclists, whatever the conditions, the distance, the roads, or the bike you ride. 🚴
The company focuses heavily on innovation, developing new fabrics, searching for more sustainable alternatives, improving designs, and applying the latest technologies.
All of the base layers in its latest collection are treated with Polygiene BioStatic™ Stays Fresh technology. Polygiene’s job is to eliminate odor using methods that are gentle to people and the environment. Thermo-regulating, breathable and fast-drying undershirt is a fall wardrobe staple.
We can sweat over one liter per hour in warm conditions. Sweat is natural and odorless, but when in textile, it creates a moist and warm environment which is ideal for odor-causing bacteria to multiply and thrive. The bad odor is released as bacteria break down proteins and fatty acids present in sweat. Bacteria love big surfaces and fabrics provide that. But fortunately, Polygiene sticks very well to textiles as well. Polygiene BioStatic technology stops bacteria growing in the fabric and does not affect the skin's natural bacterial flora. So you can wear more and wash less.
Philippines-based healthcare brand Imperia has launched Genus, a range of hemp fabric facemasks treated with Polygiene ViralOff. The company is on a mission to help transform the healthcare system in the Philippines by developing an array of innovative products.
“We decided to partner with a company having a great purpose and an advocate for a better world,” it states. “Polygiene ViralOff technology is revolutionary and outstanding. It not only helps with the current situation we’re all in, providing antiviral protection, but it also requires less washing, which is beneficial to the environment.”
