Sigvaris Debuts Tencel® C Recovery Socks

Sigvaris Group — a Switzerland-based manufacturer of compression socks and stockings — now offers
Tencel® C Recovery socks with controlled graduated compression to help athletes recover after
running or other high-exertion activity.

Sigvaris’ Recovery socks are designed to help dissipate lactic acid buildup in the legs and
reduce muscle swelling after exercise. The company’s new socks feature Austria-based cellulosic
fiber producer Lenzing AG’s Tencel C fiber, which allows the skin to retain moisture while
stimulating skin cell regeneration. The fiber also regulates body temperature, inhibits odors, and
is hypoallergenic, Lenzing reports.
