Carnation Silversocks contain pure silver, a naturally occurring element. The textile fibres incorporated in the sock have been completely and universally coated with pure silver. This construction means the silver is on the outside of the fibre allowing its many natural benefits and properties to perform at their optimum.

  • Thermodynamic

Keeping feet warm in winter and cool in summer

Anti - Odour
Eliminates odour by neutralising its principle causes

Antimicrobial
Eliminates the Growth of odour causing bacteria

 

Anti-Static
Reduces Static Electricity

 Thermal Conductivity

The silver within the socks has the best possible thermodynamic properties, regulating the temperature within the shoe.

Carnation Silversocks make it possible to use the existing energy generated by the feet and the environment to actively regulate temperature through heat transfer.

Maintaining a regulated temperature can help reduce the risk of blistering caused by excessive friction and heat build up. Silversocks will keep feet cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.


Antimicrobial & Anti - Odour

Silver is recognised in the medical community as a very effective antimicrobial agent, proven to kill over 400 different types of bacteria. The X - Static Silver fibres use pure silver to inhibit the Growth of odour - causing bacteria and fungi in the socks.

Bacteria are only one source of foot odour. Ammonia and denatured proteins are also significant causes of odour in hosiery products.

Carnation Silversocks neutralise ammonia and denatured proteins because both bind readily to silver resulting in instant odour reduction.

X - Static Silver eliminates 99.9% of bacteria in less than one hour of exposure.

Silver Socks for Foot Odour

Healthy and agile feet are important to support our entire body weight in our day - to - day lives. Our feet contain 250,000 sweat glands that constantly secrete moisture to keep feet moist, supple and healthy. However, many feet are prone to excessive sweating, which can lead to irritable feet. Sweaty and smelly feet are a common problem that many people encounter at some stage in their lives.

Carnation Silversocks are breathable and constructed using a high percentage of cotton for comfort. As the sock is completely and universally coated with silver it has both excellent thermodynamic and antimicrobial properties keeping feet cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter while inhibiting the Growth of odour causing bacteria.

X - Static silver eliminates 99.9% of bacteria in less than one hour of exposure.

Bacteria are only one source of foot odour. Ammonia and denatured proteins are also significant causes of odour in hosiery products. Carnation Silversocks neutralise ammonia and denatured proteins, because both bind readily to silver resulting in instant odour reduction.

Carnation Silversocks' hydrophobic yarn system allows a greater amount of moisture to be drawn through the fibres for subsequent evaporation. As a result moisture is transferred away from the foot faster, creating a more comfortable environment.

 

Silver Socks for Diabetes

Feet are a high - risk area of the body for diabetic sufferers and care is a high priority.

General examination of diabetic feet should be a daily routine, checking for mild problems that if left unattended could cause much more significant problems. Blisters, dry skin or cracks on the feet should not be overlooked as ultimately they could lead to skin damage and ulceration. With around one in ten diabetic patients suffering a foot ulcer it is important to take extra care of diabetic feet.

Other general principles that should be followed are to wash feet daily, taking special care to dry gently with a towel especially between the toes. Always check the temperature of a bath before putting feet in and avoid other items that could burn like hot water bottles or electric blankets or sitting close to fires. As diabetes can have reduced sensation in the feet it is important to ensure that the shoes and hosiery selected are a comfortable correct fit.

Carnation Silversocks are breathable and constructed using a high percentage of cotton for comfort. The seam of the sock, over the toe area, is manufactured so it is on the outside of the sock to avoid unnecessary friction or pressure that could occur with traditional hosiery. The welt of the sock, that keeps the sock in place around the ankle, is designed to be a soft contact hold so as not to restrict circulation.

As the sock is completely and universally coated with silver it has both excellent thermodynamic and antimicrobial properties keeping feet cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter while inhibiting the Growth of bacteria.

 

What is Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB)?

The skin condition Epidermolysis Bullosa causes skin to blister and tear even under the slightest friction.

Epidermolysis Bullosa is characterised by the lack of adhesion of the skin either above or under the basement membrane. There are several variations of EB, the most common form causing blistering to the hands and feet. Rubbing and heat build up tend to be the main causes of blistering. This is worse in warm weather.

Carnation Silversocks were designed by Carnation Footcare when asked by Dr Tariq Khan, Consultant Podiatrist for EB at Great Ormond Street Hospital, to help find a way to reduce heat build up in the shoes of Epidermolysis Bullosa sufferers.

As silver has great thermodynamic properties it was the material of choice. The challenge was then how to keep it in the shoe and in contact with the foot. X - Static silver was used and bonded completely and universally to the textile fibres constructing the sock.

The result is a textile sock coated with pure silver for everyday wear just like ordinary socks, but with thermodynamic properties, regulating the temperature in the shoe to help reduce the risk of blistering caused by excessive friction and heat build up.

Additionally the seam of the sock, over the toe area, is manufactured so it is on the outside of the sock to avoid unnecessary friction or pressure that could occur with traditional hosiery.
