Powered by the bacteria-killing ionic field Copper is known for, our Copper Membrane Insoles inhibit the growth of odour-causing bacteria. We crafted a unique copper membrane design for the first of it’s kind Copper membrane shoe insole. The Copper hexagon plate design is fitted to the centre of a breathable fabric insole, which can be cut down to size for virtually any shoe, skate, or boot.
how does copper work?
Wikepedia Says: Copper and its alloys (brasses, bronzes, cupronickel, copper-nickel-zinc, and others) are natural antimicrobial materials. Ancient civilizations exploited the antimicrobial properties of copper long before the concept of microbes became understood in the nineteenth century. In addition to several copper medicinal preparations, it was also observed centuries ago that water contained in copper vessels or transported in copper conveyance systems was of better quality (i.e., no or little visible slime or biofouling formation) than water contained or transported in other materials.
The antimicrobial properties of copper are still under active investigation. Molecular mechanisms responsible for the antibacterial action of copper have been a subject of intensive research. Scientists are also actively demonstrating the intrinsic efficacy of copper alloy “touch surfaces” to destroy a wide range of microorganisms that threaten public health.
