ACTIVE SKIN PROTECTION means these briefs include Curly Fiber, which instantly converts the high pH value of voids to a skin-friendly pH 5.5; hypoallergenic materials, which have an extremely low potential for causing allergic reactions; superabsorbent polymer to lock-in fluids and maintain a healthy, dry environment; and cloth-like, breathable side panels for increased air-permeability and optimum skin health.
