Consumers’ sustainable use of resources. Antimicrobial-treated products provide two advantages – they require less laundering and at lower water temperatures. These highly wash-resistant products promote a reduced use of water and electricity. With its built-in deodorant effect, customers may wear the clothing items several times before washing them. As a result, these clothing items last longer – a benefit to the consumer and to the environment.
Impact on the environment. At the beginning of product development, SANITIZED AG determines and evaluates any air pollution emission values and waste water contamination for its final formulation. These values serve as the basis for the recommendations given to the textile finishers and mills. In addition for manufacturers, low application concentrations are needed which translates into reduced packaging and waste volumes as well as lower transportation and storage costs.
Safety for man and the environment. Sanitized TH 22-27 carries bluesign approval, the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 (class I-IV), and is Allergy UK registered. These indicate it has undergone stringent quality tests and has met the highest requirements.
