Football & lacrosse players wear foam-lined plastic chin cups which become hot, sweaty, dirty, oily, smelly, and harbor bacteria & fungi. Because chin cups/straps never get washed, wearing them several hours a day, six days a week, often leads to problem/irritated skin.
ChinSavers’ Super Hydrophobic drymax® fibers move sweat off the skin keeping players drier and more comfortable in hot & cold weather. ChinSavers are breathable and their stretch fit conforms to the shape of your chin & chin cup. Increased comfort allows for better concentration.
The drymax fibers that rest against the skin are enhanced with Cupron® Copper Technology. These special fibers release millions of copper ions (Cu+/Cu++) that help improve skin appearance. Clinically proven Cupron Copper provides documented performance for a wide range of applications. When worn regularly against the skin, Cupron Copper has been shown to improve the skin’s elasticity, flexibility, suppleness, and softness as well as appearance in tone and texture.
ChinSavers are washable, helping ensure oil, bacteria, dirt and dead skin cells do not build up on the product, clog pores or irritate skin. To help problem/irritated skin, wash ChinSaver after each use. Use scent & color free detergent and no fabric softener.
Cupron Copper technology inhibits growth of odor causing bacteria, helping keep ChinSaver odor-free.
During the 2010 Fall football season we introduced and tested our ChinSaver product with High School, College and Professional Football with tremendous success. Since then, ChinSavers have become the ‘asked for product’ at all levels of play.
In hot weather, players wearing ChinSavers are more comfortable, and in cold weather they are warmer because their skin is dry. Increased comfort leads to a higher level of concentration.
Cupron Copper Technology has been independently tested in laboratory settings against generally accepted clinical test protocols, using standard test conditions. Under these conditions, Cupron Technology is consistently found to be non-toxic and non-irritating to the skin, with no adverse events reported. There are no toxicity issues because the body metabolizes copper very well. Copper oxide is the basis for Cupron Technology and is made from recycled copper. When Cupron Copper Technology is integrated into textile fibers it is typically non-leaching or minimally leaching so it has no negative environmental impact. The copper does not oxidize, and protection is permanent.
