Silvon Home integrates Ionic+ across its range

Safe, natural, and chemical-free solution to fighting and eliminating bacteria build-up in bedrooms and bathrooms.

Ionic+ fabric treatment developed by Noble Biomaterials, based in Scranton, Philadelphia, is being integrated across Silvon Home’s bed, bath, and mask products.

Ionic+ is engineered with positively charged silver ions that provide natural self-cleaning of microbes on fabric to offer unmatched protection. Permanently embedded into the fabric, the introduction of Ionic+ in Silvon’s products means towels, sheets, pillowcases and more will require fewer washes in between use and result in a significant reduction of microbes.

Already widely adopted as an odour eliminator and microbe-fighter in fabrics for the outdoor, athleisure and medical markets, the success of Ionic+ in bedding and bath is due to its effectiveness at repelling harmful bacteria. While traditional fabrics collect bacteria only to transfer it back to the skin, Ionic+ fights bacteria while sleeping and long after a towel goes back on the rack. Silvon Home’s line-up of products featuring Ionic+ are chemical-free and dermatologically tested to fight bacteria at the source.

“The problem with fabrics in the bedroom and in the bathroom is that they collect a lot of bacteria from moisture, but present it back the very next time the item is used,” says Alex Szpakowski, Silvon co-founder. “Ionic+ addresses this problem and delivers a safe, natural, and chemical-free solution to fighting and eliminating bacteria build-up, and we’re thrilled to partner with Noble Biomaterials to provide this solution to consumers.”
