mediven cotton is a round-knitted medical compression stocking with a share of 27 percent genuine organic cotton. The noticeably soft natural fibre organic cotton is also suitable for sensitive and allergic skin. This has been dermatologically tested 3 for mediven cotton and given top marks. The optimal combination of natural and functional fibres provides a thermoregulating effect: cooling at higher temperatures and isolating warm in cold weather. 

For the sake of the environment: mediven cotton uses organic cotton

Make a difference.
With responsibility for people and the environment

The cultivation and processing of traditional cotton usually involves the use of genetically modified seeds, harmful pesticides and hazardous chemicals. In addition, the water consumption is enormous. That is why we chose for GOTS-certified organic cotton 4 for mediven cotton. Together with the use of GRS-certified recycled polyamide yarn 5 – for transparency and trust and a step towards more sustainability.
