The people behind:
The original idea for nowadays concept was born from us- Andreas Jan and T. Georg- the two founding CEOs. We both worked as academics in leading positions, living business life style ourselves for more than a decade. Doing this we were confronted with the daily practice of being well and professional dressed. We know what counts while performing in meetings, working long hours, traveling and having important dinners.
We all have to prove style and taste, feel confident and be absolute apparently comfortable to be the best version of ourrself. At the same time getting dressed shouldn´t be a time-consuming issue.
We asked our selves “What to wear underneath white business shirts? Or really under any shirt? And if there is a need to wear something underneath, what would it be? We couldn't find the right answer: a t-shirt is such a turn off, it´s visible, leaves marks and isn´t body fit. Worst case it comes with visible brand logos and a cut, that makes it not only shine through but actually visible at the shirt collar. Even white t-shirts leave clear marks and are visible, shining through, being to short and slide easily out from trousers when moving. So thats the first nogo! Other opportunity yesterdays boring, outdated and immediate showy stigmatizing and unsexy fine-rip. You better not! So going without underwear? The whole day? Leaving sweat marks on the shirt, leaking body hair and flaws and especially tattoos. That wouldn't be a solution either.
So we did some serious research, talked to fashion experts, fabricants, designer and consumers. 1,5 year later we came through with our product. The perfect underwear collection- including our undershirt, boxer briefs and socks, providing a holistic solution for the demanding customer: A undershirt that is invisible, body fit and never slips. A undershirt that works in any climate, that covers tattoos, body hair and flaws. We are proud that Schaufenberger is known for the invisible undershirt since 2014. Our company and its products represent premium quality underwear, providing the perfect solution for any occasion- business, celebration, dinner, wedding. For stylistic confidence it is the perfect part of the wardrobe for any man. It is a high quality brand known for innovation and exclusivity.

We offer our collection now the the revolutionary treatment Polygiene- making it odor free. You will never smell of sweat. We see tremendous potential in our products. Being innovative and actually providing a better life standard for our customers— The opportunity to stay fresh and feel comfortable 24/7.
The Polygiene-treated of Schaufenberger® fabrics prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria at the source. Polygiene uses low concentrations of silver salt (silver chloride), which has antimicrobial properties. The treatment is applied at the finishing stages of textile production. Field and lab tests show a high level of odor control beyond the usual lifespan of a garment. Polygiene silver salt technology is only active on the textiles itself. Polygiene is not nanosilver.
The silver salt (AgCl, silver chloride) in Polygiene inhibits and guards against the growth of odors from microbes such as bacteria, fungus and mildew. The Body’s Sweat is a natural response to any physical activity. The cooling and heat dispersing actions of up to 2.6 million sweat glands (20% is located on your feet) in the average human body are essential to help us to perform and keep us comfortable. Sweat itself is natural and odorless, but mixed with textiles it creates a moist and warm environment, which is ideal for odor causing bacteria to multiply and grow. The bad odor is released as bacteria break down proteins and fatty acids present in sweat.
POLYGIENE FAST FACTS
Polygiene antimicrobial treatment offers 24/7 protection and works around the clock without adversely affecting other product characteristics.
Polygiene is based on silver salt produced from recycled silver. Silver chloride is naturally present in water and soil.
Polygiene has its heritage in the healthcare sector and has undergone extensive skin sensitivity testing. Polygiene particles are more than 100 times larger than nanoparticles and therefore are too large to penetrate to the skin’s barrier. Polygiene-treated fabrics have received Medical Class 1 approval in Europe, the same class that includes bandages for direct contact with open wounds.
No interference with bacteria naturally occurring on the skin – Polygiene is active only on the material’s surface and does not interfere with bacteria naturally found on the skin, even when used for long periods of time. Tests also conclude that there is no identified risk from dermal and oral contact with silver treatments. Polygiene is not nano silver.
That means it is eco friendly and has no negative environmental impact at all.
Washing and drying accounts for two thirds (2/3) of the environmental impact of a product. Polygiene treated textiles do not need to be washed as often, which saves water, energy, time and money as well as improve the lifespan of a product. With Polygiene you can wear more, wash less and be climate smart!
Climate-smart and eco-friendly, Polygiene will make Schaufenberger Underwear fresher and last longer. Less washing or dry cleaning is required. Let nature freshen up your garments instead. Hang them to air out to avoid unnecessary washing. You can also pack less and travel lighter and in that way reduce your ecological footprint in many ways. Our care-label serves as a friendly reminder.
