    Nikwax BaseWash® effectively cleans, deodorises, inhibits the build-up of body odours, accelerates drying and improves the cooling efficiency of synthetic base layers.

    Why do technical base layer fabrics dry quickly and cool you down?

    Synthetic base layers are designed to be worn next to the skin, providing user comfort by maintaining body temperature and controlling moisture. The fabrics used are highly wicking (they will spread moisture out over a large area), fast drying and breathable. It is therefore essential to maintain these properties when caring for base layers.

    Do base layers need to be cared for properly to avoid odour build-up?
    Synthetic base layers are fantastic for regulating your temperature and controlling body moisture, but over time a build-up of bacteria and body oils can lead to them smelling. To keep synthetic base layers functioning properly, care must be taken when washing. Using conventional household detergents or fabric conditioners can impair wicking properties by causing the fabric to retain moisture. This leads to reduced wicking capabilities and slow drying of the fabric. Additionally, odours will not be adequately removed, instead, they are masked by perfumes which will fail quickly, leaving you with smelly base layers!

    Anyone who is active outdoors will benefit from wearing a base layer.
    All active people should use base layers to effectively manage body moisture and regulate temperature. Hillwalkers, runners, cyclists, and mountaineers are among those who utilise base layers to maintain their comfort whilst active.
