Want to feel smelly or fresh? Buff® fabrics keep bad odours away

Imagine having something smelly around your face.

Buff® fabrics prevents this. Permanently.

The smell of your T-shirt is caused by bacteria. The better the living conditions the quicker it starts smelling. That’s why it’s always your armpits that smell first. Wonderful warm and moist. The perfect environment for bacteria.

Buff® uses the best technology money can buy – Polygiene. On contact with the fabric they die. Simple & effective.

Here is a nice review from Gearjunkie. It’s for a shirt but the results are pretty much what we experience.

Sweaty gunky helmet? A Buff® as helmet liner keeps your helmet fresh and clean
