The scientific community is constantly learning about the remarkable health benefits of copper, many of which have been common knowledge for years. Copper fabrics are proven to be:
Heat-Retaining: Copper fabric is highly efficient at trapping heat, making these gloves ideal for cold hands and Raynaud's disease sufferers Antimicrobial: Fabric infused with copper ions has been proven in medical journals to kill 99.9% of many types of bacteria (more on this below) Anti-Ageing: A common ingredient in anti-ageing beauty products, copper has been shown to promote production of collagen and elastin in the skin Anti-Inflammatory: Copper is commonly believed to soothe aching joints and muscles, making copper-infused fabrics a common treatment for arthritis Which Size Should I Choose?
These gloves are available in four sizes to suit the majority of hands. To choose the correct size for you, measure the width of your palm (excluding your thumb) and choose the closest size based on the sizing guide below.

These gloves are designed to provide a slight compression to your hands, which is great for staying warm and promotion circulation. As your hands make their natural movements, the compression of these gloves will gently stimulate blood vessels, helping to boost your circulation and keep your hands warm.
Are the Copper Compression Gloves Warm?
These gloves make use of the heat-retaining properties of copper to trap all of the warmth of your hands inside, helping to keep you warm when other gloves fail. This makes them ideal for those suffering from Raynaud's disease, as well as those who simply often find themselves with cold hands.
Are These Gloves Suitable for Arthritis?
These gloves aren't only useful for the warmth and bacteria reduction they provide, their natural copper properties also work as a homeopathic remedy for arthritis and inflammation. Copper-infused fabrics have been found to have thermal regulating properties, increasing blood flow as they heat up your hands, wrists and fingers. This increased blood flow relieves multiple arthritic symptoms, including joint inflammation, making the gloves helpful for pain related to rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
What Kinds of Bacteria Can Copper Kill?
antimicrobial properties of copper are well-known in the medical field, and copper-infused fabric have been shown to be effective at killing a wide range of bacteria and viruses. Published medical journals have proven that copper fabrics can kill a range of viruses including Influenza (H1N1 / H9N2) in under 20 minutes, and a 2014 study by Copper Clothing Ltd showed that copper-infused fabric achieved a 99.9% reduction and destruction of a coronavirus within 10 minutes. Please note that copper fabric has not yet been tested against the current COVID-19 strain of coronavirus. How Do These Gloves Improve Skin Health?
Studies have shown that copper-infused fabric reduces the tell-tale signs of ageing in the skin by promoting blood flow, collagen and elastin. This helps to keep the skin on your hands fresh and vibrant, and these properties have also been shown to drastically reduce dry and itchy skin.
Do These Gloves Fight Odour?
Yes they do, as copper's remarkable antimicrobial properties make it ideal for use during sport or physical activity because it kills odour-causing bacteria before they form. For this reason, these gloves won't constantly need to be washed, as even after prolonged use the copper ions will keep them smelling fresh.

Where Else Are Copper Fabrics Used?

Do These Gloves Work With a Smartphone?
While these gloves will allow finger taps on a touchscreen to be read by most devices, their grippy material makes it difficult to swipe across a phone screen while wearing them. Also touchscreen performance may diminish after repeated washes of the gloves. This means we would recommend taking the gloves off for optimal use of a touchscreen device.

This makes them possibly the best natural, drug free and non-invasive solution to these problems on the market.
