Why does Juzo use Silver in its products?

Patients with lymphological and phenological illnesses are prone to bacterial skin infections. This also applies to people with scars following burns or scalding, or with post-operative scars. In these cases, they can benefit from the antibacterial effect of pure silver.  X-Static silver thread is knitted into Juzo Silver compression products. It has a natural antibacterial effect. The silver filaments in the X-Static thread are much bigger than silver nano particles, and take effect on the skin surface.


Safe and Natural

Juzo Silver compression stockings are made using X-Static. Silver is safe, natural, and for centuries has been medically recognized for its antimicrobial properties. Juzo Silver garments do not use chemicals to provide antimicrobial properties.


Ionic Release

The antimicrobial effect of silver is generated by the release of silver ions. A release rate of at least one part per million (PPM) is required to offer effective antimicrobial efficacy. Juzo Silver products offer a release rate well above the minimum requirement for antimicrobial activity and solely protect the finished product from microbial growth


Heat Dissipating

Silver is one of the most thermally conductive elements in the environment. Heat between the skin and garment is dissipated into the environment via the silver fibers. This promotes a more pleasant wearing experience.


Laboratory Tested-Odor free

Juzo Silver compression stocking were tested by North American Science Associates (NAMSA) for antimicrobial activity. The tests show that Juzo Silver compression fabric protected itself from Staphylococcus Aureus in less than 4 hours4, helping to reduce odor from the garment.


Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) is a type of bacteria that is resistant to certain antibiotics. These antibiotics include methicillin and other more common antibiotics such as oxacillin, penicillin and amoxicillin. Laboratory tests show that Juzo Silver products are highly effective at protecting the finished product from MRSA.
