Cupron is the developer of a proprietary and patented technology that transforms regular products into extraordinary ones by introducing into them the unique properties of copper. Based in Richmond, Virginia and Israel, the privately held company licenses its technology to global companies that, in turn, integrate the technology into different applications, particularly those that benefit from copper's natural anti-microbial effectiveness and skin-enhancement qualities.
Cupron's technology starts with the powerful, natural properties of copper, a mineral that has been used to improve health and wellness for centuries. Cupron's patent-protected technology embeds finely ground copper into different polymers, which are then extruded into fibers and produced into yarn. The Cupron-infused yarn is then converted to a textile fabric from which different Cupron products are made. Manufacturers that use Cupron-enhanced fabrics need not change their existing manufacturing process nor need any special equipment.
Cupron's early commercial applications have been focused on products that enhance the skin. Cupron's Cosmetic Satin Pillowcase and Cosmetic Sleep Mask, for example, reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles and are recommended by leading dermatologists. Cupron's pillowcase and sleep mask don't require a daily application; the products go to work while a person is sleeping. Similarly, Cupron's Cosmetic Gloves can help reduce the unsightly effects of "skin creeping," the wrinkly folds that tend to appear on the back of our hands as we get older.
The effectiveness of Cupron's breakthrough technology has been clinically proven by many studies, and the Cupron Cosmetic Pillowcase has specifically demonstrated its capabilities in four independent double-blind studies, all of which showed a statistically significant reduction in wrinkles and fine lines as well as an overall improvement of the skin. Users of the Cupron Cosmetic Pillowcase, for example, found these same skin enhancement benefits within the first four weeks of everyday use. Cupron's proven benefits have been the subject of at least 30 articles in scientific journals.
The copper ions present in Cupron's technology are activated by the moisture in our bodies and in the air. These ions are the driving force behind copper's natural skin enhancement and antimicrobial properties. Products like the Cupron Cosmetic Pillowcase allow these ions to work in conjunction with your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Cupron fibers are high performance fibers with properties that can be affected by silicone. It is recommended not to wash Cupron products with fabric softener or laundry detergent that contain silicone, as silicone plates the fibers thus minimizing the effect of the copper ion release. Therefore, we suggest using Woolite for long term care. Other than the detergent used, Cupron products could be washed like any other textile product.
