Odor Control provides all-day comfort
The Bata Innovation Lab (BIL) has come up with an Innovation series. The focus is to highlight footwear innovations that are both anchored in comfort and helping Bata achieve its 2020 innovation rate of 10%. Bata Industrials worked with scientists from Life Materials to launch “Odor Control”, a solution that not only eliminates odor, but is also completely eco-friendly. The Life Materials technology is a 100% natural antimicrobial based on a completely natural plant extract, derived from peppermint. The technology has the innate ability to kill 99.9% of bacteria and even maintains its effect at temperatures of up to 240°C. Odor Control has been rigorously validated and meets international regulatory standards. Of all the smells in the air, stinky, sweaty feet rank highest on the “Most Smelly” list, edging out bad breath by a sliver. This was the top complaint heard by consumers wearing safety shoes.
