“For brands like Maloja it’s of great benefit to collaborate with ingredient brands, to face the tension between sustainability and higher performance orientated products. Their experience and technical innovation strength merge perfectly with our way of acting and thinking. It’s a perfect match!”
Founded in 2004 near Lake Chiemsee in Bavaria, Maloja has become a true pioneer in combining fashion and lifestyle-oriented design with functional activewear in just a few years. Whether on the slopes, hiking trails or cross-country skiing tracks, in the forest, in the mountains or on the streets, the brand combines original designs with sustainable materials, high-tech with nature and mountains with cities. The brand’s particular source of inspiration is its respective annual theme, which shapes the collection across all sports and seasons.

“The relationship between brands and ingredient brands is a true representation of symbiosis. The ingredient brands can focus 100% of their energy and resources on creating innovative, relevant products that add value to their brand partners’ products. The aim could be longevity, a better wearing experience for the customer, improved functionality, circular design integration or an increased point of difference compared to the brands’ competitors. If you let two partners focus on what they are really good at and then add that expertise together, you get 200% effort and input and what’s not to like about that equation.”
At Polygiene, we believe that everyone should be able to contribute to living a more mindful life. Our vision is to become the leading ingredient brand partner for anti-odor, antimicrobial and antibacterial solutions that allow our customers and their consumers to easily and actively participate in our brand vision of Mindful Living®.In short, we want to change how the world views products while helping people stay fresh and protected. It’s good for people and good for the planet.
