For the man who prefers a brief that is styled for comfort and support with close fitting sculpted panels and seams.
Inspired by the clothing that has brought relief to thousands of eczema patients around the UK, this revolutionary new fabric has been especially developed to meet the needs of today's lifestyles.
DermaSilk® Intimo briefs require no additional elastication either around the waist or legs and their seamless design make them ideal for use under close fitting clothes. They fit most figures thanks to the elasticity of the knit and the absence of side seams which allows the garments to stretch comfortably to almost twice their size.

Treat DermaSilkIntimo garments with care and they will last as long as normal underclothing. Wash by hand or in the washing machine at 30°C using non-bio (enzyme-free) detergent.
DermaSilk® is made from animal protein very similar to human hair so it can also be washed by hand with a little neutral shampoo (without conditioner or other additives).
Do not use bleach, fabric conditioners, stain removers or disinfectants. It is important to rinse repeatedly in plenty of water. Do not spin-dry or tumble-dry, or dry in direct contact with sources of heat (radiators).
To remove any stains, steep the garments in warm water and bicarbonate (2 spoons of bicarbonate per litre at 60°C) for 2-3 hours before ordinary washing.
In clinical trials 83% of children with atopic dermatitis using DermaSilk® showed an improvement in their condition.
DermaSilk® is made of a special knitted medical grade silk which has been stripped of its outer coating and bonded with Microbe Shield technology*. It is far superior to cotton for sensitive skin, retaining up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp. The special knitted construction of the fabric makes it breathable promoting faster healing, in essence a second skin. "Normal" silk fabrics used for clothes are not recommended for dressing of subjects with atopic dermatitis, as these fabrics reduce transpiration and therefore may cause worsening of disease activity.
*DermaSilk® is specially bonded with an antimicrobial shield, called AEM 5772.5, which has been used in hospitals for over thirty years and has proven ability to inhibit bacterial and fungal growth on fabrics such as operating theatre gowns. It acts by puncturing and electrocuting bacteria and fungi, causing their death. There is no chemical poisoning of the cells and no chemicals or nano-particles are released onto the skin. No other antimicrobial is capable of protecting silk in this way.
