Confitex briefs to help Aussies with incontinence issues
Apr '15
Finally a remedy for 4.8 million Aussies suffering from poor bowel and bladder control problems has been found in the form of a newly launched beautiful line of incontinence knickers called Confitex.

Meant for mothers, sportswomen and men, the world’s first-ever aesthetically produced, affordably priced innerwear is not only replete with absorbent and waterproof properties but also is pad-free and machine-washable.

Available online, the life-changing stylish briefs and boxers are made using an innovatively designed hi-tech sports fabric that quickly wicks away moisture using the body's heat and can absorb almost a cup-full of fluids.

Devoid of plastics or harmful chemicals, the soft, comfy bamboo-based eco-friendly textile product has been developed by a pair of New Zealand entrepreneurs and avid skiers -- Mark Davey and Frantisek Riha-Scott.

“Our knickers help people go about their daily life with confidence -- hence the name Confitex. Women want to feel attractive, which is where our normal-looking pretty lace underwear comes in. One woman described them as ‘kind of sexy cute’. We’ve had people literally tell us the underwear has been life-changing for them, particularly the men,” says one of the innovators, Riha-Scott, while describing the benefits of their new innovation in a media statement.

Emphasising on the pollution created by plastic-incorporated slow-degrading nappies, diapers and pads, Davey said, “People don’t like using them either. They can be using four to six pads a day– that’s 1500 pads a year -- rather than seven pairs of our eco-friendly undies that make them feel good too.” (PB)
