Hyosung to launch new ‘creora Fresh’ elastane at Interfilière Lyon/Mode City

“In response to the continued growth of sports underwear, we have developed creora Fresh using our proprietary ingredient technology to chemically bond to substances that cause body odour and to neutralise them,” explained Hyosung President Yong Seup Kim.

“creora Fresh has been demonstrated with nylon and polyester fibres to last longer than traditional antimicrobial finishes. This technology will also enhance sportswear garment and fabric versatility by giving consumers added confidence. It is the latest addition to our creora speciality product portfolio and a demonstration of our commitment to excellence through innovation.”


“Globally sports participation is on the rise as consumers continue to be concerned about wellness,” said Ria Stern, Hyosung Textiles Global Marketing Director.

“As a result we see growth in demand for sports bras and underwear. creora Fresh adds comfort, fit, and confidence for consumers. We have a number of brands interested as they want to move away from antimicrobial chemicals next to the skin.”
