The Confitex story starts back in 2013 on the pure alpine snow slopes of New Zealand, when two young endurance ski racers came up with the ingenious idea of creating high-performance absorbent sports underwear to give them a competitive edge during downhill races. But they quickly realised that leakproof underwear would also be life-changing for the one in three women and one in five men who live with light to medium urinary incontinence. And so, in 2015 Confitex was launched at New Zealand Fashion Week and made international headlines as the world’s first fashionable range of incontinence underwear. Fast forward to 2020 and, with the development of its superior second-generation absorbent textile, Confitex has launched its Just’nCase range of absorbent period-proof and pee-proof underwear and nursing pads for women, as well as a new range of trunks under the Confitex for Men label.
