Actipro Probiotic Finish combats allergens in textiles
Jan '11
Actipro Probiotic Finish is a natural solution for combating pathogen bacteria and allergens in textiles, without being destructive for the positive micro-organisms and necessary skin flora. Actipro is something new, safe and effective against undesired growth and reproduction of allergens.

According to Dick van der Schans, Marketing Manager of Vendor Washroom Hygiene, based in Tilburg, Netherlands: “The use of Actipro for our scrim reinforced paper towel will further distinguish our unique continuous hand drying system from the competition. It will revolutionise the washroom hygiene market”.

A lot of textiles (e.g. matrasses, carpets, filters etc.) trap dust and debris during their use, creating an ideal growing place for unwanted pathogen bacteria and allergens. Anti-bacterial products kill the bacteria, but the resistance to those mechanisms is growing and strengthening them even more.

There is a need for a positive approach. Actipro is a probiotic concept and means 'for life', not against it and is not harmful to humans, flora and fauna. On Actipro treated textiles bad bacteria and fungi get no chance to grow or reproduce. It reduces bad smells and allergic effects of house dust mite allergens.

Johan Cleyman, Global Project Manager at TANATEX Chemicals states: “Anti-bacterial products are not the solution to the problem, they are more often reported to create super germs or anti-biotic resistance. The possibilities for using Actipro are endless and beyond all our scientific imagination”.
