Why? Odor Resistant
Because of hemp’s natural ability to be antimicrobial, it allows it to be odor resistant as well. As feet sweat, the warm wet conditions are the perfect conditions for bacteria to thrive. Bacteria will grow wherever it can, even if you can’t see them. But just because you can’t see them, doesn’t mean you can’t smell them. Foot odor is a direct results from that bacteria growth. Luckily for you, hemp socks fight back. While not an and all be all by any means, hemp sock’s antimicrobial properties hinders the ability for those bacterias to grow. Hindering that growth provides less smelly feet and less smelly socks when you take them off. For anyone, or anyone who knows someone, with smelly feet, this can be a very stinky situation. By switching from socks made with other materials to hemp or hemp blend socks, it will help to decrease foot odor problems. The more hemp in the sock, the more likely it will be to aide in your odor battles!
Odor fighting isn’t the only benefit to consider with hemp socks either. If you have any issues with rashes, athletes foot, or other bacterial foot issue, the antimicrobial properties of hemp socks will also help to battle those. Being antimicrobial allows hemp to hinder the growth of these type of conditions rather than incubate it like non hemp socks would do. The added strength and durability of hemp compared to other fibers allows hemp socks to last longer to other comparable socks.
