HeiQ Materials based in Schlieren in the canton of Zurich has developed a new textile odor protection product together with Patagonia from Ventura, California. According to a press release, the HeiQ Mint textile technology is based on mint oil and keeps treated textiles fresh for longer. Even with regular textile use, washing can take place less frequently. HeiQ will be presenting HeiQ Mint at ISPO Munich trade fair from November 28 to 30.
HeiQ Mint blocks body odor in textiles, with the technology being refreshed with every wash. According to the company, HeiQ Mint is also ideal for textiles worn directly against the skin such as sports clothing, underwear, or bedsheets as it is made from natural ingredients.
