Men's Copper Boxer Shorts
These innovative, super-comfy men’s boxers are infused with natural copper. This helps promote healing in cases of eczema and destroys odour-causing bacteria as well as fungal spores and viruses.
Designed with health and hygiene in mind, the copper-infused fabric is located in the genital area and has been tested to EN ISO 20743 to kill candida. This luxuriously soft, comforting, self-cleansing underwear is perfect for long periods of wear, helping to keep you fresh and comfortable all day long.
Copper will not leach during laundering so these boxers will retain their copper benefits throughout the useful life of the garment.

Copper is a safe, natural, essential trace element required for the functioning of all living organisms (plants, animals and humans). It has been used for centuries for its anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating properties.
How Do Copper Ions Destroy Bacteria, Fungi and Viruses?
Copper ions destroy pathogenic microbes by the Oligodynamic Effect. This is the process by which the copper ions, regardless of what material they are infused in, utilise electrostatic forces to puncture the outer cell wall membrane or viral coat.
This rupture then allows the copper ions to destroy the DNA and RNA inside the cell, preventing it from replicating, making it nature's tool to protect and prevent the spread of infection. Pure natural Copper is a completely safe, chemical free, non-drug and non-invasive solution.
Promotion of Healing (Angiogenesis)
Copper is known to promote healing through the development of blood vessels and to rejuvenate skin through the synthesis of collagen and elastin. This is very important for people living with eczema as they may be prone to broken skin which can become infected.
Copper ions are bonded on a molecular level, meaning they will not leach. Our wash tests highlight that the benefits of copper will last the lifetime of the product.
Copper is able to destroy the bacteria and fungi that typically cause foul smells and bad odour.
Copper Outperforms Silver
All forms of Silver are non-selective toxic biocides, making them potentially poisonous to humans. In addition, they exhibit anti-microbial activity only in the presence of moisture and humidity. Copper is not poisonous and works across all temperatures and humidities.
Copper has been shown in published studies around the world to destroy 99.9% of bacteria, fungi and viruses within minutes of contact. It is also toxic to dust mites and is known to repel them.
To prolong the life of your boxers wash them on a gentle 30 degree cycle using non-biological detergent. Do not bleach. Do not use fabric conditioner. Do not tumble dry and dry in the shade. Washing inside out helps rinse away dead skin cells which can be unhelpful to eczema-sufferers if they remain inside the underwear.
