Introducing SilverGuard Antimicrobial Beauty and Wash Bags



SilverGuard is pleased to announce the launch of versatile antimicrobial beauty and wash bags – perfect for use as make up bags, travel and wash bags and much more. Harnessing IONIC+ silver thread technology to ensure that the contents of your bag stays clean.


If the Covid pandemic has shown us anything it is how many germs are present on surfaces and passed on from things we touch. The last few years has made everyone acutely aware of hygiene and cleanliness, from washing hands to wearing face coverings to ensuring items we use are sanitary. So, whether you are delving into your make up or travel bag, the peace of mind that that you aren’t spreading germs to the contents of the bag and to yourself is invaluable. 

Why SilverGuard Beauty and Wash Bags?

  • Antimicrobial

Makeup, travel and wash bags are an obvious breeding ground for all kinds of bacteria and other microorganisms. When it comes to make up bags, how often does someone clean them? Not very often at all. Studies have shown that in-use make-up products such as mascara and lip gloss are contaminated with microorganisms such as E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus.i And when you travel, you come into contact with many more people and with surfaces that aren’t regularly disinfected. Whether you use SilverGuard’s new beauty and wash bag as a make up bag or a wash bag, the inner antimicrobial lining in them has been designed to keep you and the contents of your bag safe.

The IONIC+ silver thread is weaved through the inner lining of our beauty and wash bags which works to prevents the growth of bacteria, fungi and other germs, both on bag and the contents of the bag. 

  • Reusable and Washable

Our beauty and wash bags are also reusable and washable. You will be able to safely wash them without it losing its antimicrobial properties – which is handy for spillages that may occur with items in the bag. Also from an environmental point of view, the Beauty and Wash Bags are Made in Britain, making for a smaller environmental footprint.

  • Healthier Skin including Skin Health Alliance Dermatological Accreditation

The IONIC+ silver thread technology incorporated into the beauty and wash bag lining also works to eliminate acne-causing bacteria. SilverGuard has become the first ever textiles company to receive the internationally recognised Skin Health Alliance (SHA) dermatological accreditation. The SHA “dermatologically accredited” mark is an independent assessment that provides customers assurance that products have met a standardised set of skin safety requirements which have been agreed upon by leading international dermatologists and skin scientists.

  • Anti Odour

Say goodbye to musty smelling items when you use SilverGuard antimicrobial beauty and wash bags. The same silver thread technology which acts on acne-causing bacteria also works to eliminate odour-producing bacteria found on the fabric surface.
