“Our business socks are made from cotton, elastane and elastic for extra softness, stretch and breathability. The ribbing is thicker for more support. The toes are reinforced for more support. They are very comfortable to wear all day, every day. The nano particles of silver will help maintain healthy, bacteria free feet even when you have been at the office all day.” “AgActive socks are truly perfect socks. They have been designed from the ground up to provide maximum comfort and support and have also been treated with SilverSure - our patent pending process that infuses them with with billions of particles of silver, rendering them permanently anti microbial and anti fungal so that your feet feel and smell fresher for longer.” “One nanomaterial that is having an early impact in health care products is nano-silver. Silver has been used for the treatment of medical ailments for over 100 years due to its natural antibacterial and anti fungal properties. The nano-silver particles typically measure 25nm which means that a relatively small volume of silver gives an extremely large relative surface area, increasing the particles contact with bacteria or fungi, and vastly improving its bactericidal and fungicidal effectiveness.” “When the nano-silver comes in contact with bacteria and fungus it will adversely affect cellular metabolism and inhibit cell growth. The nano-silver suppresses respiration, basal metabolism of electron transfer system, and transport of substrate in the microbial cell membrane. The nano-silver inhibits multiplication and growth of those bacteria and fungi which cause infection, odor, itchiness sores and smelly feet.”
