OUR MEDICAL RESEARCH & SURVEY
Before we explore Oya's unique features, it's crucial to address an often-overlooked aspect of activewear: the balance of skin microbiota and its impact on our health. Skin microbiota consists of millions of bacteria living on our skin, usually in harmony. However, exposure to certain clothing materials or chemicals can disrupt this balance, leading to skin issues like allergies or irritations.
At Oya, maintaining skin microbiota balance is paramount. Factors like chemical exposure from clothing and poor fabric choices can disturb this balance. Chemical residues like PFOA found in some activewear can irritate the skin. Additionally, inadequate breathability and moisture management in clothing create a thriving ground for unwanted bacteria.
Ensuring balanced skin microbiota is the foundation of healthy skin and body. Oya's advanced features, toxic-free materials, and patent-pending innovations put us at the forefront of femtech.
Women's sportswear, most commonly constructed from spandex blends, frequently falls short in providing the necessary ventilation and moisture control. This deficiency in women's sportswear design increasingly contributes to numerous health concerns.
To address this vital issue, Oya embarked on a collaboration with over 80 professionals in women's health. The goal was to deliver a co-create a healthier and more accommodating line of women's sportswear.
Recognizing the glaring research gap with regard to the vaginal microbiome, Oya organizes annual surveys with the participation of 60+ physicians to gain a deeper understanding of the adverse effects of sportswear on feminine health.
The compelling insights gathered from our surveys reveal the crucial link between clothing choices and women's health:
These findings aren't just statistical data; they convey the real-life experiences and concerns of thousands of women. To further illustrate the magnitude of these issues:
These alarming statistics underscore the importance of our mission. At Oya, we are dedicated to researching, working with medical professionals, and refining our products continuously. We want to promote and provide healthier sportswear options for women.
Breathability in activewear is crucial for regulating body temperature and preventing the growth of bacteria. Traditional activewear brands often use synthetic fabrics, such as polyester or nylon, known for their quick-drying and elasticity features. However, these material tend to trap moisture against the skin and limit air circulation, hindering the body's natural cooling mechanism and fostering an environment conducive to bacterial growth.
Our Hypercool Mesh is engineered for maximum breathability, keeping you cool and dry during your workouts. This advanced fabric is light, airy, and perfect for high-intensity activities.
Elevate your performance in SoftStride, a brushed fabric that offers a smooth feel, just the right stretch, and moisture-wicking capabilities for your active lifestyle.
