product details

Opposites attract: the wide, strong waistband of the Brief Lace Leaf meets delicate Italian lace in a leaf design. Our lace is made out of recycled polyamide and spandex. Production is carried out in compliance with certified recycling standards, which, among other things, ensure the traceability of the material. A wonderful side effect: the use of recycled materials makes the lace even softer on your skin!

The ooia Brief Lace Leaf is delicate and loves to be handled gently. Please use a laundry net when washing your ooia Brief Lace Leaf and do not put any other garments in it. They can damage the lace. Your ooia Brief Lace Leaf will thank you and stay with you for a long time.

The ooia period underwear Brief Lace Leaf holds up to two tampons of liquid while feeling completely dry. This makes it ideal for your light to medium menstrual period days. Plus, the ooia Brief Lace Leaf is washable, making it reusable. You can wear the ooia Brief Lace Leaf alone or as a back-up to other period products.

ooias are produced ethically and ecologically fair in Portugal, Lithuania and Croatia with fabrics from Europe.

Our model Liz wears a size 36 and our models Marie and Mikaela wear a size 38-40.

technology

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 soaks up liquid and prevents it from leaking 

  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.
  1. The middle layer consists of specialized fibers that absorb moisture very quickly. This layer is also equipped with an anti-bacterial agent. More info: click here.
  1. The outermost layer is a liquid-impermeable membrane that doesn't let any liquid through to the outside, protecting you from leaking. In addition, this layer - just like all the other layers - is breathable and thus ensures that you do not sweat.

washing

Wash your ooia once before the first use.

After wearing your ooia, it is best to wash it by hand in 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 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 a no-go, just hang ooia on the clothesline and it will soon be ready to wear 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.

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 for this purpose.

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 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 certifications.

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

material

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

Furthermore, our wool comes from merino sheep that are treated fairly (mulesing free). The polyamide of the outer fabric consists of recycled material.

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

material composition:

Outer fabric: 83% recycled polyamide, 17% recycled spandex

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

Midlayer: 80% cotton, 20% polyester

Membrane: 100% polyester base fabric, 100% polyurethane membrane

bacteria inhibition

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.

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 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

Nano particles are not used
