TECHNOLOGY

All LABFRESH products are made with our FreshCore™ technology. Learn more about it HERE and check out the most frequently asked questions below. Read more about our 1 Year Performance Guarantee HERE.

What is FreshCore™?

FreshCore™ is a unique treatment mix developed by LABFRESH that combines several performance enhancing technologies in one: hydrophobic, antibacterial and easy care. The combination of these 3 properties allow our products to be stain and odour repellent and stay fresh longer.

Does FreshCore™ compromise the look and feel of the clothing?

FreshCore™ is both invisible to the eye and untraceable when touching the fabric. When applying the treatment mix, we completely preserve the natural texture, softness and breathability of the 100% premium cotton used.

Is FreshCore™ a safe technology?

The treatments are individually used in the military and medicine for years, but only on synthetic fabrics. We have succeeded to combine the 3 technologies on 100% cotton.

We made a decision to only produce within the EU, which mean every partner we work (Portugal and Switzerland) lives up to the REACH regulations set by the European commission, which is the harshest rules for use of chemicals in textiles. All our fabrics and yarns are also STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® and BlueSign™ certified. We can achieve these certifications because we chose our suppliers, treatments and fabrics carefully. We don't do nano-coatings on the surfaces of the fabric - we only treat the yarn. This allows us to use very tiny amounts of silver and chemicals - typically less than what is used to e.g. dye a shirt. There are indeed bad chemicals out there, that's why we care a lot about getting the right certifications.

What is the environmental benefit of clothing made with FreshCore™?

1. Our customers wear their LABFRESH products 3.5 times before washing it (based on a survey of 1000+ responses). Modern washing machines use around 20L of water for a regular cycle. Every time you are able to wear your shirt one more day, you save a significant amount of water.

2. 25% of all energy usage in an average household is washing and cleaning. If you can reduce that by 30%, you don’t just save on your energy bill, but also reduce the carbon footprint of you and your home.

3. Frequent washing is the main reason clothing wears out. That’s why our products last on average 3 times as long as their average counterpart. Buy less, wash less, wear longer - the easiest way you can save money and reduce waste.

Will the FreshCore™ technology last after washing the shirt?

Yes, we guarantee the stain repellency for 30 washes, the odour repellency for 100 washes. Keep in mind you don't need to wash the products after every wear, so you can enjoy the properties for a long time! Click HERE to read more about our PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE.

How does the FreshCore™ technology work?

The products in the LABFRESH collection are treated around the yarn, without creating a coating which makes the fabric repellent but still keeps the natural feeling and breathability of 100% cotton. This invisible technology allows LABFRESH products to help fight perspiration, avoid unpleasant odours, and repel water based liquids such as wine or coffee. Visit this page for more information.

Where are the products made?

All LABFRESH products are made in Europe,  specifically Switzerland,  Portugal and Romania.

We personally visit all mills and manufacturers we partner with and ensure working conditions as well as minimum salaries live up to our expectations. One of the reasons why we insist on only producing with the EU is to ensure the best working conditions for the fine people creating our LABFRESH products. 

How come the shirt stays dry?

When you sweat in a LABFRESH shirt, the sweat is not absorbed by the fabric. The temperature difference between your warm body and the outside temperature enables the sweat to evaporate through the fabric, thereby leaving your body and shirt dry while maintaining breathability.

For the t-shirts it works differently. The inside of the fabric absorbs the sweat and spreads it over a wider surface so it can dry quicker. On the outside the sweat will stay invisible and will repel all liquids.

What does wrinkle-free mean?

The testing method used to determine wrinkling is called the "Durable Press rating". Our casual shirts are tested at a DP rating of 3.0 and the wrinkle-free shirts at a DP rating of 3.5, which is the commonly accepted definition of "wrinkle-free" fabrics. There is however always limitations when one choose natural products made of 100% cotton. The wrinkle-resistance is guaranteed for 30 washes, which is in line with industry standards from brands like Eton and Suitsupply.

To remove stains

If you get a liquid stain on the shirt DO NOT touch it because you will end up rubbing it in. Instead, put it under running water immediately to remove the stain drops from the surface. If a stain does get into the fabric, just wash it at 40°C with some stain remover on the spot .

Non-liquid based stains

The fabric will probably not repel it, however most spots are easy to wash off in the wash after. So far we got almost 100% of non-water based stains off with some stain remover and washing it on 40 degrees.

How to wash your shirt

Wash on standard setting at no higher than 40 ℃. Use the lowest setting for the centrifuge and don't tumble dry. Take the shirt immediately out after the wash. The shirt dry quicker than normal and otherwise it's easy for wrinkles to set in the fabric.

DO NOT put it in the dryer.

You can also dry clean your shirts, it won't affect the technology.

When should I wash my shirt first?

That is completely up to you! The feedback we get is that customers wash it after three wears on average.

Will I have less sweat stains?

You will have it significantly less! The fabric of the shirt doesn't absorb the sweat but repels it. Our shirt is not 100% hydrophobic because it would then lose the natural breathability. If you have an actual sweat problem it might help a little bit but won't solve it. 

The t-shirts works the best against visible sweat stains from all our products. There the fabric absorbs the sweat from the inside but it remains invisible on the outside.

Will it repel black stains on the collar?

No unfortunately it won't. This is not a liquid stain and because of the fabric rubbing against the neck, the stain will still enter the fabric.
You can spray it with some stain remover and wash it on 40 degrees to get the stain out.
