tips ooia heating pad
You can heat the heating pad of your Brief Hugs either in hot water for 4-5 minutes or in the microwave at a maximum of 800 watts for an initial 10 seconds and then another 5 seconds if required.
The gel in your heating pad is not toxic. So if the heating pad breaks, you don't have to worry, but can simply dispose of it in the waste.
Please do not heat the heating pad in the oven. Remove the heating pad before you wash your panties.
By the way, the heating pad can also be refrigerated without any problems, protecting a cesarean scar from pressure and friction from the waistband, as well as cooling it.

Your health is our top priority
Gynecologists confirm that a bacteria inhibiting coating on period underwear is indispensable.
This prevents odors and the multiplication of pathogens.
We at ooia are the only period underwear brand worldwide 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 § 28 paragraph 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 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 substance is silver chloride
Nano particles are not used

still have questions?
Depending on the model the ooia period panty is designed to hold 1-6 tampons or 10-30ml of fluid. How many and when to use ooia period panties depends on your needs - your preferences, your plans, the heaviness of your menstrual flow, and many other factors. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. If your period is light to medium, you can most likely use ooia period panties without additional period products. If you are bleeding heavily, you may want to use additional protection (tampon, cup).
If you treat ooia period underwear well, it will retain its full bacteriostatic effectiveness for about 2 years. After that, you can of course continue to use them as "normal" underwear - although studies say that underwear is rarely used for longer than two years. But we are happy if ooia is used for longer.
