Sustainable Products & Practices
OZ-ONE POWDER: It is an advanced product for garments treatment to give bleached, distressed, and worn or acid wash look, but in a more eco-friendly way.

As a chemical company, Offcina+39 believes that they are responsible for contributing to the reduction of our own environmental impact. That is the reason their job has changed a lot in recent years. While innovation and upcycling are part of their identity, they now know that is not enough.
With that in mind, their daily challenge is now also focused on turning these ideas into exciting sustainable denim collections, creating unique garments that can inspire designers, brands, and product developers alike.
The RE-ACT! collection is a contribution to softening what has been a tough moment for all of us. For the collection, they let ourselves get carried away by their imagination and creativity to be enraptured by the beauty of finishing.
