Healthguard PL Treatment
Coolmax is a high-tech fibre which has been specially developed for dry and comfortable wear - the Coolmax fibre transports the moisture away from the skin to the outside layer of the sock where it can evaporate quickly.
Bamboo is a highly breathable fibre - this helps when it is warm as the bamboo preserves its natural freshness through the absorbtion and transpiration of moisture, and when cold the bamboo fibre micro-structure functions as a base layer that helps keep your feet warm. Bamboo also has natural anti-bacterial properties - this means that the Bugsox keep your feet fresh and odourless for longer - leaving them healthy and hygenic.
Bugsox Against Mosquitoes
Some strains of mosquito are known to particularly favour the feet of their hosts - it is believed that it is the smell of human feet that can draw the mosquitoes in. Bugsox fight this attraction in two ways -first the Bamboo fibres of the Bugsox have a natural anti-bacterial affect and help to reduce any smell and attraction - secondly the Healthguard impregnation of the Bugsox will act to repel any mosquitoes that are still attracted. Tests have shown that wearing Bugsox can lead to a 90% reduction in the number of mosquito bites in the protected area.
Bugsox Against Ticks
Ticks can be a real hazard for walkers throughout the UK, Europe and North America, they feed on blood and can pass on the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. Ticks live in the long grasses and latch on to their hosts as they pass by – this makes Bugsox Adventure an excellent first line of protection as the ticks will be deterred from climbing the socks to reach somewhere they can feed.
