The Swiss textile innovator HeiQ has launched HeiQ Fresh FFL (Fresh For Long), a 100% bio-based odour control technology. The product targets the sportswear and intimate segment, with application especially suitable for seamless garments made of synthetics.

According to a press statement, HeiQ Fresh FFL is described as the world’s first bio-based, non-antimicrobial, non-silver-based textile odour control technology, which is based on a biopolymer derived from 100% renewable source. This wash-resistant, biodegradable textile finishing stops bad smells before it emerges on textile.

HeiQ Fresh FFL was launched at ISPO Munich on 28-31 January.
