Microban has formed a new partnership with Cosmo, a world leader in eco-friendly and sustainable footwear textiles. Cosmo is now the exclusive Microban Approved Component Supplier (ACS) partner in the footwear category, providing materials treated with Microban antimicrobial technology to all global footwear brands.  
Footwear is unavoidably subjected to sweat and heat on a regular basis, and is difficult to keep clean, providing an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive and generate odors. Cosmo, Byfield, MA/USA, has adopted the new Microban Fresh Fabric System, combining Microban antimicrobial technology and quality control with its own superior fabric finishing capabilities to deliver high quality footwear textiles that consistently meet stringent odor control and antimicrobial performance standards.
»We wanted to use a non-metal solution compatible with sustainable textile manufacturing processes, in line with our company ethos and to match the recent shift in the textile industry.«
Josh van Dernoot, President, Cosmo

Built-in product protection for textile applications from Microban International Ltd., Huntersville, NC/USA, shows high antimicrobial efficacy, inhibiting the growth of bacteria and fungi by up to 99.9 %, keeping footwear fresher for longer. This helps to prevent odors, stains and premature disposal, prolonging the useable lifetime of the product and reducing textile waste.
