Odegon's DeoTags pass another test with flying colours!

Vartest Laboratories Inc. in New York recently completed testing Odegon’s odour absorbing DeoTags in accordance with ISO 17299-2 ‘Determination of Deodorant Property, Detector Tube Method’ and the results are in!

The chemical tested was Ammonia and the Odour Reduction Method was an incredible 98% successful which just reinforces how effective our technology is.

These results compliment testing already carried out including in-situation wearer trials and various lab tests using isovaleric acid (strong cheesy feet odour) and butyric acid (unpleasant smell found in body odour and stink bombs).

Tom Rawlings, Director of Odegon Technologies says “Another test and another convincing result for our technology. We now have the full range of testing proving efficacy in lab conditions both before and after washing and dry cleaning, the all-important ‘in situation’ wearer testing and of course great feedback from our clients.” He goes on to say “Odegon is superior to anti-microbial products that claim to tackle odour because our technology works in the real world and not just under ideal lab conditions. It doesn’t wash out and harm the environment when washed into the water table, and most importantly it does not kill helpful bacteria indiscriminately on the skin and damage the local microbiome.”

More product launches are set for 2017 in the uniform, sportswear and retail high street areas so keep checking in for updates.

Likewise their Anti-Odour Footwear Cell ensures well used trainers or hiking boots do not spread the ‘used-shoe’ smell throughout other luggage.

Greg Wilson, Kathmandu’s Product Manager of Equipment - says. “At Kathmandu we’re always looking for ways to innovate within our packing cell range of products. We wanted to solve damp, dirty gear infiltrating your entire gym bag or travel luggage with odour. We needed the expertise of a technology partner and we found it in Odegon. Through this partnership we were able to innovate in an area of our business we wanted to grow. We have developed an innovative product that really works. We hope customers love it!”

Steve Rawlings from Odegon Technologies recently gave an interview to Fibre2Fashion.com. Read it here!

Nov 05

a) Mr Rawlings, can you explain how the need for designing products that absorb odours came into existence? What did you have in mind when you designed it?

a) Mr Rawlings, can you explain how the need for designing products that absorb odours came into existence? What did you have in mind when you designed it?

Chemical odour suppressant finishes tend to kill all bacteria, both good and bad. During the wash cycle, these finishes can leach out onto the body and the environment and some cause untold damage to aquatic and marine life yet to be researched fully. Thinking this is not an ideal solution, I cast my mind back to earlier in my career.

A number of years ago whilst working in the defence industry I came across a material which absorbed not just odours, but was also used (and still is) for life saving breathing filters against chemical warfare agents. I realised what a powerful tool it was for odour absorbing when placed correctly in a garment. It was the head of quality and innovation at a Global retailer who saw the unique advantages of Odegon over chemical finishes, he said "All finishes are like using a sledgehammer to crack open a nut, whereas Odegon is so much more incisive and targets just the areas that need odour control with no unpleasant side effects such as environmental contamination."


b) How many brands have agreed to use the product till now and what are your plans for 2015-16? How do you plan to expand your business?

We have at this moment over 15 major brands worldwide with a number still trialling Odegon and more coming on board. Being a relatively new and expanding company we have targeted the major brands first. With executives moving to different companies they tend to take good ideas and concepts with them such as our Odegon products. Recent major names include UMBRO, Ted Baker, Carrefour Clothing, Pretty Polly and Raymond of India.


c) How do the products actually work? What are the chemical processes involved? Are they safe when the person wears them?

It is important to emphasise that unlike many other anti-odour products, we do not use chemicals. Instead our technology relies upon a physical attractive force which works on a very small scale. Our material has countless 'micro-pores' and when odour causing molecules come into contact with these micro-pores, they become trapped. There is a huge internal surface area present in our material which means the odour absorbing capability is vast. We do not aim to kill bacteria because we know this can have a detrimental effect on the environment and potentially also on the garment wearer's skin. Instead we focus on solving the problem in hand, and eliminate the odour rather than unselectively killing both good and bad bacteria.


d) What are some of the challenges associated with brands - as in did you encounter any issues after you tied up with several brands?

The biggest challenge is getting across the concept of not using any chemicals and the acceptance of the product working. Even though we have proven tests from a variety of institutions and even wearer trial tests from such respected companies as Boots the Chemist and Marks and Spencer, each potential customer wants to carry out their own field trials. It's very reassuring when clients come back with glowing reports as to the effectiveness of the products. A number of international airlines are now using Odegon in their cabin crew uniforms and we are getting many repeat orders through their uniform suppliers. We find we usually have to go in at senior level to get noticed and those most receptive to new technology tend to be Garment Technologists but also Marketing Directors. These people can see the potential of Odegon and want to offer their customers something new and genuinely effective.

e) What is your next big project? What are you researching on currently?

Because we have invested a lot of resources in securing our intellectual property internationally (such as Patents), our product offering is expanding and we can become more flexible in coming up with 'bespoke' odour absorbing solutions. Garments such as shirts, jackets and blouses are our bread and butter however we are now expanding to include all garment and accessory classes. New projects which we can talk about include bespoke solutions for hosiery, sports bags, footwear and headwear. There are many others but confidentially prevents us from divulging more details.

Odegon Technology is now in tights! Sweet Step Your Way To Fresh Feet With Pretty Polly

Oct 08

For the very first time, Pretty Polly incorporates Odegon’s patented odour removing technology within its hosiery.

For the very first time, Pretty Polly incorporates Odegon’s patented odour removing technology within its hosiery.

Keeping feet fresh can be a challenge... from everyday usage of your favourite pair of shoes, to the common problems associated with being on your feet all day; foot odour is a situation everyone will be familiar with.

In a bid to tackle this, Pretty Polly is proud to introduce Sweet Steps – a uniquely innovative hosiery range guaranteed to significantly reduce unpleasant smells, designed especially to keep feet feeling fresher for longer.

Pretty Polly Sweet Steps Using a patented technology never before applied to hosiery, Sweet Steps features a lightweight heart-shaped odour control patch, cleverly fused to the sole of the foot. The patch works to destroy odour, using micro-porous technology to target and capture smelly sweat molecules, trapping them before neutralising them, leaving nothing but fresh air.

Developed exclusively by Odegon Technologies Ltd for Pretty Polly, the discrete Sweet Steps patch incorporates carbon-based materials to remove and neutralise smells.

Thanks to their cute heart shape, the patches (which are suitable for sensitive skin) are as attractive as they are effective.

David Donnelly, Managing Director of Pretty Polly, Courtaulds Brands Ltd. said: "We know that women lead increasingly busy lives and are on the go all day, often in shoes made from synthetic fabrics – an ideal environment for unpleasant smells to penetrate. Sweet Steps is the perfect solution to this, giving women a comfortable and simple solution to what can be an embarrassing issue.

We are constantly looking to bring new and exciting innovative products to the hosiery market and Sweet Steps offers an unrivalled solution to the common problem of foot odour."

Director at Odegon Technologies, Tom Rawlings said: "As leaders in odour absorbing products, we believe our patented technology will bring a new dimension to the hosiery market.  Our partnership with Pretty Polly, is a huge step forward in tackling common problems associated with foot odour. Consumers benefit from a technologically advanced fabric which is chemical free, does not wash out, lasts as long as the garment and contains no harmful anti-microbial additives."

Pretty Polly’s Sweet Steps range will hit shops in September 2015 for further details; full stockists and pricing please visit www.prettypolly.co.uk.

Umbro includes innovative odour destroying technology in new Pro Training jacket range

Mar 30

International sportswear and football equipment giant Umbro is the first global sports brand to integrate Odegon protection, a technology that traps and destroys underarm odour molecules, into a clothing range. 

Odegon DeoTags® have been incorporated into three jackets from Umbro’s Pro Training range, which are used by professional athletes and footballers across the world. 

The small fabric tags, which use micro technology to attract and destroy the molecules responsible for body odour (BO), are discreetly integrated into the underarm area of the training jackets, offering a unique solution to unwanted smells caused by sweating during sports and exercise. The tags remain in place for the lifetime of the jacket and retain their odour capturing capabilities wash after wash.

Unlike deodorants and modern clothing treatments such as nanosilver, which is a biocide and subject to product labelling regulations, Odegon is chemical-free, odourless, inert, non-allergenic and environmentally-friendly.

Robin Dunn, head of apparel at Umbro said, “We are always looking for innovative ways to enhance our performance product and Odegon’s DeoTag technology offers a clear benefit to athletes.”  

Steve Rawlings, CEO of Odegon says, “It is clear that odour is a big issue for those who play sports, both recreationally and professionally, and it was apparent to us early on that DeoTags have a key part to play in the sportswear industry.”

“We are really pleased to announce that Umbro is the first global sportswear manufacturer to incorporate our technology and we are seeing our products beginning to get noticed in this sector as manufacturers identify the added value they offer consumers with very low additional manufacturing costs,” he says.

The surface area of the DeoTags’ ‘active’ inner material comprises multiple peaks and troughs, which, if stretched out would equal the dimensions of a full size tennis court. Polarised molecules from BO are absorbed and permanently trapped within the material’s structures until the garment is cleaned, either by hand or machine, and the odour molecules are flushed out.

In addition to Odegon being incorporated into a number of manufacturers’ clothing lines, the company has also developed retail products based on the technology. Odegon’s DeoSole®, a stick on, discreet pad, using the same technology to eliminate odour in shoes, has been sold through Boots, Aldi and independent footwear retailers throughout the UK.
