Sciessent Announces NOBO™ Anti-Odor Technology as Newest Addition to Product Portfolio

January 13, 2022

Beverly, MA – (January 18, 2022) – Sciessent, a global leader in antimicrobial, anti-odor, anti-pilling and water repellent technologies, announced NOBO™ anti-odor technology as the newest addition to the company’s product portfolio today.

Specifically formulated to reduce odor in natural and synthetic fabrics, NOBO™ adsorbs compounds responsible for body odor without the use of an antimicrobial. The technology harnesses the power of benign, non-biocidal, highly porous minerals. The complex structure creates a high, active surface area that bonds with odor compounds, readily adsorbing them into the porous surface. Once adsorbed, the odors are washed away in the laundry and the receptor sites regenerate – ready to adsorb new odors.

“NOBO™ is a major addition to our product portfolio,” said Sciessent CEO, Paul C. Ford. “This technology perfectly encapsulates our continued commitment to innovation and sustainability by giving brands an inexpensive way to enhance and add value to their products, while reducing the laundering frequency for consumers. In addition, NOBO™ does not require any biocidal registrations, so it will be the perfect odor control solution for wherever brands sell their products.”

"NOBO™ does not require any biocidal registrations, so it will be the perfect odor control solution for wherever brands sell their products."

Applied via pad or spray applications, NOBO™ can be incorporated into virtually any fabric and is ideal for daily-use garments. It is effective on recycled polyester, as well as on synthetic cellulosic fibers.

Sciessent’s Agion®, Lava X2®, Agion Active X2®, Pilltec™, and now NOBO™ products are all bluesign® approved and listed on the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Foundation ZDHC Gateway, complying with ZDHC Level 3 requirements.
