Microban International announced two of its non-antimicrobial technologies, Scentry and Scentry Revive, have earned ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX certification, an independent testing and certification system for chemicals, colorants and auxiliaries used to manufacture textiles.
To receive this accreditation, a three-stage verification analyses is completed and based on whether chemical products and each individual ingredient meet specific requirements with regard to sustainability, safety and compliance with statutory regulations, said the company. The combined process ensures there is no harmful effect on the human and environmental health of the textiles treated.
“Having both Scentry and Scentry Revive meet the strict requirements of Eco Passport confirms our commitment to provide not only best-in-class performance for consumers and value for our brand and manufacturing partners, but also to the highest standards for sustainable and safer chemical products,” said Pablo Perella-Berdun, President, Microban International.
Scentry’s key sustainability benefits include water and energy savings through the reduced need for laundering. Most significantly, because it prevents the odor build-up that causes consumers to discard apparel, footwear and gear prematurely, Scentry Revive effectively extends the usable life of any product treated with it, keeping items out of landfills.
