Frequently Asked Questions 
 
 

What are Skins™ and how do they work? 
 
 Skins™ is body-molded gradient compression performance equipment with built-in BioAcceleration Technology™ which 
will enhance your performance in training, competition and recovery. 
The future of technical wear is engineered gradient compression. When compression is engineered to apply a balanced 
and accurate surface pressure over specific body parts, it triggers an acceleration of blood flow. This increases oxygen 

delivery to working muscles to enhance their performance. 

The circulation improvements also help the body to eliminate lactic acid and other metabolic wastes. The combination of 

these effects allows you to work at a higher rate for longer. 

The improved oxygenation is most marked in recovery from exercise. As a result, muscle repair is accelerated, with a 

greater effect if your Skins™ are worn for longer, The best effects on delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), which 

can last for more than 48 hours, are seen after 8 hours during which time pain, muscle weakness and alertness are 

dramatically improved. 

Why are Skins™ different? 
 Skins™ are unique in their combination of features, which work better than any single component. 
The key is in Skins™ revolutionary BioAcceleration Technology™ and the features that are built into the smart fabric of 
all Skins™ products. 
Benefits include: 

• reducing lactic acid build-up, increasing muscle oxygenation and enhancing circulation; 

• focusing muscle power; 

• drawing moisture away from the skin; 

• optimizing body temperature in warm or cool conditions; 

• preventing odor through antibacterial treatments; 

• providing sun safety with 50+ UV protection. 

The benefits that only Skins™ provide are backed by independent testing. Skins™ are the only compression and 

therapeutic sportswear that conducts independent scientific testing. 

What is BioAcceleration Technology™? 
 BioAcceleration Technology™ is a term trademarked by Skins™ to refer to the benefits incorporated with engineered 
gradient compression. 
The future of technical wear is engineered gradient compression. When compression is engineered to apply a balanced
