Lately, the new buzz word in environmentally friendly materials is Bamboo. So what’s the deal with Bamboo? Here is the scoop from our friends at Dr. Comfort labs:

Bamboo Charcoal was discovered during the Ming Dynasty in 1486 A.D. Today Molecular Nano Bamboo Charcoal is made when bamboo charcoal powder is refined by temperatures over 700 degrees. Nano Bamboo Charcoal Fiber (NBCF) is able to release FAR Infrared Rays that may promote blood circulation and increase Anion production.

NBCF is also a natural deodorizer which has innumerable hole structures to absorb and decompose benzene, phenol, methanol sulfides, and nitrides. Bamboo also helps reduce odors from NH3 gas, adjust for moisture, release Anions and restrain microbial growth. The ability for NBCF to regulate skin temperature will also assist in thermoregulating your feet more effectively than traditional materials. As a sustainable natural resource over hardwood charcoal due to its rapid growth cycle, NBCF will protect the environment as no chemicals are required for this product.
