During recovery cold ambient air represents no overcooling risk factor because the warm air inside the InnerAirChannels form an insulating cushion. During recovery the cooling down process is interrupted by the lack of sweat. The air in both channles serves to warm and protect using the body`s own warmth to create a body aura: a protective shell that wards off the influence of cold. The 3D-BionocSphere System begins warming when sweat is absent.
During activity sweat forms a line of moisture on the skin. Drops are absorbed by the SweatTraps and conducted into the Evaporation Surface Expander. The evaporation occurs in three ways activated by body heat; On the skin for cooling In the SweatTraps to process excess moisture and in the Evaporation Surface Expander where the excess is finally evaporated.
SkinNODOR Technology The gradual release of ions which are activated by body heat is the key to the effectiveness of SkinNODOR. These ions inhibit the growth of microorganisms rather than eliminating them outright thus preserving the delicate balance of the skin`s ecosystem. In other words SkinNODOR is microbacteriostatic (i.e. it inhibits microbacterial growth) rather than bactericidal (bacteria-killing). Therefore allergic reactions do not occur. SkinNODOR is especially soft and breathable and provides superior fit. Reduce sweating. But don`t prevent it! Don`t waste a drop: sweat is too precious to dispose of completely. The skin requires a certain level of moisture in order to cool down. Evaporation cooling only starts to drive the body temperature down when moisture on the skin evaporates. Conventional functional underwear design has tended to ignore this vital fact by absorbing moisture completely and keeping the body as dry as possible. Big Mistake. Dry skin may feel good but it lacks the ability to cool naturally.
