Confitex is a specialist apparel company headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand. Confitex specialises in the design and manufacture of fashionable functional underwear and lingerie. Confitex’s main product range is washable absorbent underwear designed for the one in four women and one in ten men globally who experience bladder leakage or urinary incontinence.
Confitex products feature their patented three-layer textile technology, which is absorbent, breathable, waterproof and washable. Their innovation in this area allows their products to be plastic free, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly. The company was founded in 2012 by two New Zealand entrepreneurs – Dr Mark Davey, and fashion designer Frantisek Riha-Scott.
Confitex commenced trading in 2015 with their range of incontinence underwear for men and women. In 2015 Confitex, in a world first, launched a collection of incontinence lingerie at New Zealand Fashion Week. This was the first time incontinence underwear had ever featured on a runway.
Confitex products are available worldwide to consumers through Confitex’s online store, and also through various retailers and online partner stores, predominantly in North America, the United Kingdom and Australasia.
