The copper ion technology helps, to restore skin cells for healthier looking skin texture, tone and skin wellness for the wearer. Copper is in fact an essential nutrient in all plants and animals. The human body normally contains copper at a level of about 1.4 to 2.1 mg for each kg of body weight. In addition to being a vital nutrient for humans, copper is fundamental for the health of animals and plants.
Unlike Silver which is commonly used in antimicrobial yarns, Copper is essential to human life. Copper can be found in most foods fit for human consumption and is part of a healthy balanced diet. Because copper is a natural substance, the human body has evolved an extremely effective and well-developed internal regulatory mechanism to ensure that the copper we ingest is put to use and that any excess is harmlessly eliminated.
