Did you know, metals such as silver and copper can tarnish, even when applied to fabrics? This means they lose their efficacy and end up meaning money down the drain.
ecoZinc is the environmentally and economically friendly option for those who don't want to use metals next to their skin. It never tarnishes, and when it is embedded into yarns and fibers, lasts for the life of the garment.
So, what is ecoZinc?
ecoZinc is a technical yarn that is functionally produced for its' powerful antibacterial and UV protection purposes. Dubbed by the FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) it can be confidently used without compromising human health, safety, or the environment.
In order to create these protective textiles, we undergo a meticulous nanotechnology process, grinding Zinc-Oxide into micro particles that are permanently embedded into yarns and fibers, so the technology never rubs off.
Benefits of Zinc Oxide (ZnO) Nanoparticles:
Inhibits Odor caused by Bacteria
Inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi, mold, mildew and algae
Essential element needed to maintain health and well being
Designed for a cleaner environment
Fun Facts of Nano Zinc Oxide:
Nano-sized zinc oxide is a very diverse element and has been used for decades in sunscreen as a UV blocker to help protect people from harmful sun damage.
Scientific studies have demonstrated that Nano-sized ecoZinc poses no health risk and in terms of toxicological properties is authentically similar to Zinc Oxide.
The TGA (The Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration), and The German Federal Health Institute conclude that Nano Zinc Oxide remains on the surface of the skin in the outer dead layer (stratum corneum) and does not penetrate into the living skin tissue therefore its healing and protective properties are very effective.
