Cork has a beautiful natural feel under foot and hand and has a unique cellular structure that allows it to easily compress and expand, which helps with shock absorption and comfort.
Cork also contains a substance called suberin, which has a waxy, rubbery texture and is released with moisture. So when moisture hits the cork (like sweaty hands in yoga) it increases grip.We recommend using our Australian made yoga mat sprays which use our signature blends of Australian essential oils to lightly moisten your mat before practicing, to infuse your mat with amazing scents and initiate the suberin for the ultimate non slip experience.
Cork is naturally antimicrobial which means that it suppresses the growth of micro-organisms such as mould or bacteria. Because most allergies are caused by particles found in mould, dust and dirt, cork products are also non-allergenic, because the microbes can’t enter the cells and it doesn’t absorb dust and dirt.
