Using CottonX technology, copper oxide is infused into the cotton fibers with ultrasonic (sound) waves. This creates a permanent attachment at the molecular level. This proprietary process is the only technology that delivers antimicrobial effects to 100% cotton.
Silver coatings chip and wash off with every use, leaching into our waterways and losing its effects after as few as 10 washes. But because our EPA-approved manufacturing process sonically infuses copper into cotton, there's no risk of that with OURA towels. Instead, the copper in Alta stays attached to the cotton fibers even after 100 washes - all with no loss of antimicrobial efficacy.
