TECHNOLOGY.

Do you have to struggle with feet infections, irritations or other unpleasant conditions, such as smelly feet? Did you know that these ailments are caused by germs that live on your skin?

Did you know that copper can kill germs? And zinc can help to speed up the skin´s healing process? 

Our socks are certified to eliminate up to 99% of bacteria, viruses and fungi by using a certified formulation of copper and zinc - Copptech® - that keeps bad odours, irritation, and skin infections away.

Copptech® is a patented technology that consists of a scientifically balanced combination of copper and zinc. Both elements have widely proven antimicrobial properties against viruses, bacteria, fungi and mites. 

Upon contact with humidity, such as sweat, Copptech® technology releases copper and zinc ions, which penetrate microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, and fungi), altering and eliminating their vital functions.

COPPER (oxides)

Copper has a biocide property, capable of killing viruses, bacteria and fungi. Copper is the only metal that has been certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its antimicrobial properties, which permanently sanitize the products in which it is incorporated.

 

ZINC (oxides)

Zinc has antimicrobial properties and it helps to speed up the skin’s healing process.

 

 

Technology

Copper and zinc salts are incorporated in the yarn at molecular level.

Bacteria and the 500 ml of sweat that is produced daily, on average, by every foot (Australia DHHS, 2015) are the causes of smelly socks. The bad odour impregnated in clothing, especially socks, is caused by a bacteria that breaks down the sweat and releases the bad odour.
