What Is It?
ecoUV/ecoZinc is the safest and most effective way to protect yourself from the sun and inhibit bacterial growth. ecoUV/ecoZinc is an efficient light absorber and acts as a barrier against UV rays. The technology penetrates deeply into bacterial cell walls and help inhibit growth, limiting odor and fungus.
Classified and registered by the FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe), with over 100 patent claims registered with the USPTO and proven results in 3rd party tests with universities around the world, ecoUV/ecoZinc is the smarter alternative to metals for a cleaner textile.
The UV absorption of ecoUV covers nearly the full UVA and UVB region demonstrating broadband protection characteristics.
ecoZinc is an efficient antibacterial textile product. Proper inclusion of ecoZinc in textiles resulted in a reduction of more than 99.9% of E.Coli and MRSA bacteria count after 24 hours. Equal activity levels have been observed for other bacteria, such as Staphylococcus Aureus, Salmonella Typhimurium and Klebsiella Pneumoniae.
This also contributes to reducing odor.
