HOW IT WORKS

Our products are treated with Polygiene®, who makes one of the most advanced and sustainable silver fabric treatments available, and which safely prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria at the source. Silver salt is naturally found in both water and soil. 

The sustainable treatment consists of a low concentration of recycled silver salt (silver chloride), which effectively kills bacteria, fungi and other microbes. Allowing you to use more, wash less and save time.

The treatment is applied at the finishing stages of the textile production, and field and lab tests show that it lasts the entire life-cycle of your product.

Polygiene® is OEKO-TEX® and Bluesign® approved and is not a nanosilver.

The antimicrobial properties of silver has long been known. Even NASA uses it as a way of purifying their water in space.

 

  

BENEFITS

The Polygiene technology applied to all Nordifakt products eliminates 99.9% of all bacteria and makes the product stay fresh and odor-free.

Our products will help save water - as an example the Nordifakt towel needs less washing and will save you an average of 1800 liters of water/year, not to mention all the time you also save.

Nordifakt products can be washed cold without compromising the hygiene. This makes a positive impact on the environment because you can eliminate the high energy use a warm/hot wash is.

Because you can wash less, you can also tumble dry less, enabling more time and a greener eco-system for your family and home. On towels alone, that will save you close to 2000 kg of CO2 a year (the same as a flight from London to Berlin).

 

 

CREATING CHANGE

We are adding technology to our products because we believe that it is the future!

There are so many amazing technologies available that can help improve the way we use and care for our products, while giving them a longer life-cycle.

Nordifakt knows that eco-friendly and antibacterial technologies can go hand in hand. Eco-friendly does not mean we need to go back to the time of horse drawn carriage technologies to protect the environment. Instead, Nordifakt is finding ways to use technology in a positive way, to improve and make the products we surround ourselves with healthier, more efficient and smarter. Nordifakt is using eco-technology to create products that help the environment by the concept; use more, wash less -saving both water and CO2.
