Recent consumer research shows that 72% of shoppers are interested in odor control technology in active wear. As social animals we want to be close to others without having to worry about bad smell on our apparel.

Avoiding unwanted odors has been a constant source of innovation and new technological advances throughout the ages. Thus inspired, HeiQ has developed innovative textile technologies that control various sources of bad odors ranging from polyester smell to hormones, food, smoke and sweat, delivering market-leading odor control performance and durability.

On top of a general overview on existing and traditional odor control solutions, we introduce more sustainable but equally or more effective technologies. Get an update on the latest breakthroughs in the industry, which include a bio-based solution against sweat odor and other non-silver technologies that tackle not only sweat but also environmental odors.
