MICROBAN EARNS ECO PASSPORT BY OEKO-TEX® CERTIFICATION (9/10/18)
Microban® International, the global leader in odor control and prevention solutions, announced two
new, non-antimicrobial technologies, Scentry® and Scentry Revive®, have earned ECO PASSPORT by
OEKO-TEX certification—an independent testing and certification system for chemicals, colourants
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. The combined process ensures there
is no harmful effect on the human and environmental health of the textiles treated.
“Microban is as dedicated to finding solutions that meet real consumer and industry needs. 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.
Easily integrated into existing dyeing and finishing processes, both Scentry and Scentry Revive are
market leading odor neutralizers that fight the problem of permastink.
Scentry, one of Microban’s original and most-used odor capture technologies, reduces odor in clothing
and footwear made from polyester, Spandex and poly elastane blends more than 90 percent for more
than 50 typical home launderings by capturing and neutralizing odors within the fabric and releasing
them when the apparel is laundered.
Introduced at the Spring 2018 Performance Days event, Scentry Revive’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.
