WHY ARE ANTI BACTERIAL CHEMICALS USED IN POLYESTER TEXTILES?


Now that some experts have described anti-bacterial chemicals in consumer products as a public health threat. How about some transparency from leading textile brands who treat polyester with anti-bacterial chemicals? Polyester is a durable fabric making it suitable for sports wear. However polyester also retains body odour when used, even after washing, which necessitates treatment with anti-bacterial chemicals to reduce the smell. Consumers need to be informed of the chemicals used in sports apparel, especially polyester apparel marketed towards women and children.

If concerned, just ask your sports apparel brand.
