Sanitized® - ION ANTI_SMELL
Sanitized® is a certified antimicrobial material treatment that prevents bad odor caused by bacteria or mildew in moist or sweaty environments. ION’s ANTI_SMELL products fight a very unpleasant problem many people are familiar with from their sports gear: Foul sweaty smell caused by bacteria or mildew. Forget the smelly times when heading back home from a ride by car. No smell: Laundry cycles can be reduced massively, which helps to keep the garment’s physical properties for longer. Your ION ANTI_SMELL product will last for more sessions than ever before.
The Sanitized® freshness treatment is proven by strict tests that meet the highest requirements and is certified by OEKO-TEX 100 – Class I-IV as well as blue sign®.
