product details

The sporty ooia Shorty with its subtle shiny detail on the waistband, is the most absorbent ooia style to ensure maximum security on your strong menstrual days. It holds up to six tampons of liquid! The ooia Shorty has a soft, wide waistband.

Through an innovative design technique, the ooia  Shorty does not show under your clothes and  is super comfortable and reliable.

The ooia Shorty feels completely dry despite the high absorption of liquid. In addition, the ooia Shorty is washable and therefore reusable. You can wear the ooia Shorty on its own or in combination with other period products. Also, the ooia shorty provides wonderful support during postpartum and pregnancy.

ooias are sewn exclusively with fabrics from Europe in sewing factories in Portugal, Lithuania and Croatia, which work according to audited ecological and social standards.

Our model Liz wears a size 36 and our model Lisett wears a size 42.

technology

An ooia period panty is as beautiful and comfortable as your favorite underwear, but it can do so much more: it has a built-in membrane system in the crotch that soaks up the liquid, and keeps it from leaking out.

  1. The layer closest to the body is made out of soft merino wool. It quickly wicks moisture away from the body. So you feel dry at all times. In addition, it is equipped with a bacteria-inhibiting agent, so that no bacteria can multiply and no unpleasant odor develops. More info: click here
  2. The middle layer is made out of specialized fibers that absorb moisture very quickly. This layer is also equipped with a bacteria-inhibiting agent. More info: click here.
  3. The outermost layer is a liquid-impermeable membrane that doesn't let any liquid through to the outside, protecting you from leakage. In addition, this layer - just like all the other layers - is breathable and thus ensures that you do not sweat.

washing

After wearing ooia, it's best to wash it out by hand with cold water

Then you can put it into a laundry net and into the washing machine and wash it at 40 degrees ideally in the easy-care wash cycle - you can also do this along with other dark laundry.

Please don't wash your ooia with full strength detergent, as this is too aggressive for the wool. Instead, ideally use wool detergent.

Please do not use bleach or fabric softener, as this will reduce the effectiveness of ooia.

Please also do not dry clean - but who takes their underpants to the dry cleaners?

Ironing is also a no-go, just hang ooia on the clothesline and it will soon be ready for use again.

If you treat your ooia 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.

bacterial inhibition

Because your health is our top priority, we've sought the opinion of gynecologists on the requirements for bacterial growth inhibition.

These gynecologists confirm that it is fundamentally important that period underwear inhibits bacteria growth- and that high-quality, tested fabrics are used to do so.

Our membrane system has bacteria-inhibiting properties at key points -so that bacteria can neither multiply nor develop unpleasant odors. 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. Of course, we do not use any nanoparticles that are controversial to health.

The bacteria inhibiting effect of the silver chloride takes place directly in the fiber.

The Hohenstein Institute carried out elaborate testing on our ooias to ensure its antibacterial activity.

The Hohenstein Institute is a very renowned German textile testing and research institute that awards various certificates.

ooia is the only period underwear in the world whose function is certified - we are proud of that!

material

ooia is made out of carefully selected, specialized fabrics made in Europe. The ooia Shorty is certified and tested for harmful substances according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® [21.0.46579 HOHENSTEIN HTTI]. Thus, the ooia Shorty is certified skin-friendly and harmless to health.

In addition, our wool comes from merino sheep that are treated fairly (mulesing free).

Some raw materials which enter our fabrics cannot be sourced from Europe, as this is not possible for climatic reasons.

material composition:

Upper fabric: 93% cotton, 7% spandex

Lining: 100% wool (merino wool: mulesing - free)

Mid-layer: 80% cotton, 20% polyester

Membrane: 100% polyester backing, 100% polyurethane membrane

bacteria inhibition

Your health is our top priority

Gynecologists confirmed 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 diseases. Already in ancient Greece and Rome it was used to disinfect water.

The bacteria inhibiting effect of the silver chloride takes place directly in the fiber.

It is very important to us that we communicate transparently in this regard

EU Regulation No 528/2012: biocidal active ingredients is silver chloride

No nano particles are used
