HeiQ Allergen* Tech is a 100% biobased, proprietary textile finishing technology that reduces exposure to allergens such as house dust mite matter, and pet allergens with the help of active probiotics.

(*Inanimate allergens)

HeiQ Allergen* Tech is an innovative probiotic textile technology utilizing the combination of prebiotics and probiotics (= “synbiotics”) that cleans up allergens. The probiotics colonize textile surfaces with good bacteria, effectively reducing common inanimate aero allergens such as dust mite matter and pet allergens (pet hair, dander, saliva).

HeiQ Allergen* Tech provides a biotechnical solution for allergen reduction in home textiles such as fabrics for mattresses, mattress toppers, bed linen, pillow covers, but also carpets, rugs and upholstered furniture – whatever is in reach of dust mites and your beloved pets: your pillow, bed, sofa, carpet and all textiles in cars, offices and hotel rooms…
