Frequently Asked Questions:
How does the silver in SCENTURION® work?
When the silver nanoparticles in SCENTURION® come into contact with moisture,they release very low levels of silver ions that prevent microbial growth that causes odor. Sweat ACTIVATES SCENTURION®
The more you sweat,the more it works®!
Why is SCENTURION® so effecive in eliminating odors?
SCENTURION® offers both antimicrobial and anti-odor benefits. Bacteria are only one cause of foot and body odor. SCENTURION® with Ionic Shield® contains a particle size and concentration level of pure silver which is proven to kill odor-causing bacterial and fungal organisms on porous surfaces. SCENTURION® also contains odor capture technology which encapsulates ammonia and urea from sweat and the smelly fatty acids,and steroids which are excreted from the skin and sweat glands.
Will SCENTURION® prevent odor permanently?
Once the odor is gone, SCENTURION® will continue to provide antimicrobial protection until it wears off. When this happens,simply apply SCENTURION again and clothing,footwear and gear will once again become odor and microbe-free. Once the odor is gone, protection should last for 3 to 4 months.
How is SCENTURION® different from the Other Anti-Odor or Antimicrobial Products for athletic clothing, shoes, and personal gear?
SCENTURION® does not alter the breathability, washability, wear profile, or feel of the treated material and is hypoallergenic, non-toxic, non-caustic, non-flammable, and odorless. SCENTURION® will not emit chemicals that may be harmful to people with allergies or multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and contains no volatile organic compounds (VOC), chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), or ozone depleting materials.
SCENTURION® is formulated to treat shoes, sneakers, cleats, skates, boots, pads, gloves, hats & helmets, shin guards, clothing, sleeping bags, tents, pet bedding & crates, home furnishings, carpeting, mattresses, auto carpet & seats.
What is the expeded yield (number of treatments) per 16 oz. of SCENTURION®?
SCENTURION® will treat several pairs of shoes and a whole bag of gear! The age of the items and depth of microbe burden will impact the number of treatments necessary to completely remove odor. Once odor is gone, protection should last for 3 to 4 months.
Should I apply SCENTURION® to new footwear, clothing or gear?
Absolutely! The antimicrobial performance of SCENTURION® provides highly durable odor control to new footwear and clothing. It is clear and flexible and doesn't compromise performance features or comfort. So whether the shoes,clothing or gear are for running, skating, working, hiking, competing, exercising, hunting, or just for everyday life, SCENTURION® keeps on protecting. And since it controls odor,washing will be required less often - extending the useful life of your purchase!
Why does SCENTURION® need to dry overnight?
Treated shoes need to be completely dry before wearing to prevent the socks from absorbing the SCENTURION® coating, which could result in reduced effectiveness. In addition, the drying allows the coating to attach to the individual fibers of the lining of the shoe and clothing. For that reason, clothing should also not be worn until it is completely dry.
What about shoes that have leather uppers and insoles, like dress shoes and cowboy boots, will SCENTURION® bond successfully in leather footwear?
While we don't normally think of leather as being porous, it is relative to the size of water molecules and the pure silver particles in SCENTURION®. So there is plenty of surface area to attach to. Another way to look at it is that, if the leather wasn't permeable,there wouldn't be an odor.
