Before we delve into the unique elements that make Oya Femtech Apparel unique, we find it essential to discuss an often overlooked aspect in the world of activewear: the balance of skin microbiota and its impact on our health, owing to different clothing chemicals and materials.
The skin microbiota refers to the various microorganisms, including millions of bacteria, that live on our skin. These bacteria typically live harmoniously with us. However, when there's an imbalance due to external factors, such as prolonged exposure to specific clothing materials or chemicals, these otherwise harmless bacteria can potentially lead to skin issues, such as allergies, irritations or infections.
Maintaining the balance of skin microbiota holds paramount importance at Oya.
Among the many factors that can disturb our skin's microbial balance, chemical exposure from clothing and negative stress due to poorly chosen fabrics stand out. Unwanted chemical residues, like PFOA found in many activewear pieces, can irritate the skin and disturb its delicate microbiota. Furthermore, lack of breathability and moisture management in many clothes can provide a thriving ground for unwanted bacteria.
Post a rigorous workout session or excessive sweating, harmful chemicals from clothing can excessively interact with skin, altering its pH balance and posing a threat to the skin microbiota.
Ensuring a balanced skin microbiota is the foundation of maintaining healthy skin and body. To successfully accomplish this, Oya incorporates its advanced patent-pending features, toxic-free materials and places itself 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 persist in our research, work with medical professionals, and refine our products continuously, ensuring we 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.
