Bamboo - can it really cure athletes foot?
There are a couple of things we would like to mention here
that help to support the notion of bamboo socks having a positive effect on
athlete’s foot. The first item we came across was a case study on just that. We
found it on the Utah State University website. It was in the form in of an
answer to a question. In any case, the author was Karen Biers, Utah State
University Extension Clothing and Textiles Specialist. She writes; “Fifty
individuals suffering from athlete’s foot were asked to wear socks made from
the anti-bacterial bamboo. All individuals reported that the burning and
itching associated with the condition disappeared within one to two days after
the test began. Within two to six days, the blistering and sores characteristic
of the condition disappeared and the skin returned to normal.”
After we had
come across the Utah State University article, we had our personal, informal
case study…so to speak. You can read all about our case study on Bamboo Socks
on our Bamboo Products page or on any of our Bamboo Socks product pages.
Additional information on just how miraculous viscose from bamboo fabric really is, is this scientific test "Study of antimicrobial behavior of socks from bamboo fibers."
