Microban is committed to protecting the environment. Our technologies are not only registered with the EPA and proven to be safe, but they also contribute to the sustainability of the products that utilize them. Because our antimicrobials inhibit the growth of damaging microorganisms and our odor-capture technologies absorb smells, they extend the useful life of clothing and other products. The products ultimately require less washing, which leads to less energy and water consumption.
Importantly, because of our unique carrier systems, there is minimal antimicrobial loss when those products are washed. So unlike hand soaps and some other products that incorporate antimicrobials, the compounds in our technologies don’t end up in the water system.
