OrganoTex® textile and shoe care products have been developed for several years and designed to provide good water repellency while being biodegradable. The technology is based on OrganoClick's patented and award-winning technology for modifying textile fibers and is completely free of problematic perfluorinated substances (PFAS), cyclic siloxanes or isocyanates that are often used in today's textile impregnations. Several of these substances are suspected to be carcinogenic and endocrine disrupting and are extremely long-lived in nature.
"We are very much looking forward to starting the collaboration with XXL, which with its stated environmental ambition is in line with OrganoClick's vision of a nature and water, free from plastic waste and chemical pollution. Via XXL's broad distribution in Norway, we are taking a significant step in this direction, as we reach a broad target group of consumers with our biodegradable garment and shoe care products, "says Susanne Karlsson, Sales Manager for OrganoTex® at OrganoClick.
The first delivery of products will take place in June 2021, after which XXL will start selling the products.
