Bamboo Charcoal is known for its inherent antimicrobial and anti-odor properties. This natural fiber is woven
into our wetsuit lining to provide hygiene benefits.
Anti-bacterial & Anti-odor
Bamboo Charcoal contains a unique agent called “bamboo kun” that is resistant to bacteria (bamboo grows in the wild without any pesticides). This is a natural property without adding anti-bacterial chemicals that may cause allergic reactions. The effects of “bamboo kun” are validated by the Japan Textile Inspection Association. Bamboo Charcoal prevents soiling and growth of odor causing bacteria in your wetsuit caused by body oils, sweat, and saltwater.
We still recommended washing your wetsuit after every use to prolong the lifespan and avoid aging of the neoprene.
Due to its porous nature, Bamboo Charcoal absorbs infrared light – the so-called “rays of life” from the environment and passes it through to the body. Far infrared is part of the spectrum of light emanating from the sun. It is not visible to the eye, but you feel it as heat penetrating into your skin. Far infrared warms your body, improves blood circulation and speeds up metabolism and cell growth.
Bamboo Charcoal is eco-friendly and sustainable. It is one of the fastest growing plants which re-grows without replanting.
Bamboo Charcoal feels silky and comfortable against your skin.
