Our Active compress wear is made from a mid weight Cocona TM fabric providing evaporative cooling superior to any other product available.

All our garments are made with Cocona TM fabrics so they will absorb a wide range of odor molecules. Odors coming from the wearer or the surrounding environment are attracted to and trapped within the pores of the activated carbon. Odor molecules are released and the carbon refreshed with the heat from the washing and drying. Our garment will provide a natural UVA and UVB protection. The active carbon embedded within the yarns and fibers of the Cocona TM fabric absorbs the harmful rays and provides a shield between your skin and the damaging UV radiation. Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) can be provided. Because this is not a chemical treatment, there are no negative effects on your body.
