An ooia Period Panty is as beautiful and comfortable as your favorite underwear, but it can do so much more: it has an integrated membrane system in the crotch that pulls fluid away from you, soaks it up, and prevents it from leaking
After wearing ooia you wash best with cold water by hand from
After that, it goes in the laundry net off into the machine at 40 degrees easy-care wash cycle - gladly also together with other dark laundry - it will not carry any damage from it, really!
Please do not wash your ooia with heavy-duty detergent, as it is too aggressive for the wool. Instead, ideally use wool detergent.
Please do not use bleach or fabric softener, as this limits the effectiveness of ooia.
Please also do not dry clean - but who takes their underpants to the dry cleaners?
Ironing is also taboo, just hang ooia on the clothesline normally and it will soon be ready for use again.
If you treat ooia this well, it will retain its full bacteria-inhibiting effectiveness for about 2 years. After that, of course, you can still continue to use them as "normal" underpants.

We sought the opinion of gynecologists on the requirements for inhibiting bacterial growth because your health is our top priority.
These gynecologists confirm to us that it is fundamentally important that period underwear prevents bacteria from growing - and high-quality, tested fabrics are used for this.
Our membrane system has bacteria-inhibiting properties at the crucial points -so that neither bacteria can multiply nor develop unpleasant odors. Our active ingredient silver chloride is tested under the strictest conditions and may be used in Germany according to Article 89 of the Biocide Ordinance in conjunction with § 28 paragraph 8 of the Chemicals Act. Of course, we do not use any nanoparticles that are controversial in terms of health.
The silver chloride used consists of non-migrating silver. Non-migrating means that the bacteria-inhibiting effect of the silver chloride acts directly in the fiber and not on your skin. Thus, this active ingredient is absolutely skin friendly.
We have had the Hohenstein Institute perform an elaborate test procedure on ooia to ensure the antibacterial activity of ooia.
The Hohenstein Institute is a very renowned German textile testing and research institute that awards various seals.
Incredible, but ooia is the world's only period underwear whose function is certified - we are proud of that!
ooia is made of carefully selected, specialized fabrics manufactured in Europe. All fabrics are certified tested for harmful substances. In addition, our wool comes from merino sheep that are treated fairly (mulesing free). The polyamide of the outer fabric is made from recycled material.
Upper fabric: 83% recycled polyamide, 17% spandex
Mesh fabric: 90% polyamide, 10% spandex
Lining: 100% wool (merino wool: mulesing - free)
Midlayer: 40% cotton, 40% modal, 20% polyester
Membrane: 100% polyester backing, 100% polyurethane membrane
Your health is our top priority
Gynecologists confirm to us that a bacteria-inhibiting coating on period underwear is essential.
This prevents odors and the multiplication of pathogens.
At ooia, we are the only period underwear brand in the world to have this effect certified - by the renowned Hohenstein Institute! Our active ingredient silver chloride is tested under the strictest conditions and may be used in Germany in accordance with Article 89 of the Biocide Ordinance in conjunction with Section 28 (8) of the Chemicals Act. Silver has been used for centuries to protect against disease. Already in ancient Greece and Rome it was used to disinfect water.
The silver chloride used consists of non-migrating silver. Non-migrating means that the bacteria-inhibiting effect of the silver chloride acts directly in the fiber and not on your skin. Thus, this active ingredient is absolutely skin-friendly.
We attach particular importance to communicating transparently here.
