Protection Meant to Last
Unlike silver or copper antimicrobial technology, Acteev’s zinc ions are embedded into the product instead of coated on*. Not only is this production more sustainable and safe for consumers, but it’s built to last. Even after 50 washes, our zinc ion technology is still just as effective as the first day it’s used.
*Acteev’s antimicrobial technology is embedded to protect the product. The product does not protect users or others against disease-causing bacteria, viruses, germs or other organisms.
