Reusable Copper-Infused Face Mask for Virus Protection
Face masks are becoming a regular part of everyday life, and choosing the proper mask to provide the greatest protection and peace of mind is crucial. The Reusable Copper-Infused Face Mask for Virus Protection is made with copper fibre that is proven to kill over 99.9% of many types of bacteria and viruses, providing an advantage when compared to particle-filtering masks made of standard cotton and other materials.
This mask is available in two sizes. The larger size is suitable for most men, while the smaller size is suitable for most women.
Why Choose a Copper Face Mask?
This copper mask has been designed to filter 99% of airborne particles, but is particularly effective thanks to its use of copper fibre. Copper fibres are proven to start killing viruses and bacteria on contact, providing an extra layer of virus protection when compared to masks made of standard materials.
What Kinds of Bacteria Can Copper Kill?
The antimicrobial properties of copper are well known in the medical field, and copper-infused fabrics have been shown to be effective at killing a wide range of bacteria and viruses. Published medical journals have proven that copper fabrics can kill a range of viruses including Influenza (H1N1 / H9N2) in under 20 minutes, and a 2014 study by Copper Clothing Ltd showed that copper-infused fabric achieved a 99.9% reduction and destruction of a coronavirus within 10 minutes.
Please note that the copper fabric used in this mask has not yet been tested against the current COVID-19 strain of coronavirus.
Which Size Should I Choose?
This mask is available in two sizes. To determine the correct size for you, measure from the bridge of your nose to your lower chin, as demonstrated with the graphic below.
|Mask Size ||Face Measurement (cm) |
|Small / Medium ||Up to 13cm |
|Medium / Large ||13cm or greater |
How Many Layers of Protection Does the Mask Provide?
The Antimicrobial Copper Face Mask is made with four layers, with copper-infused fabric used for the outermost layer. These layers provide the mask with remarkable filtration efficiency, while the copper fabric layer has been shown to destroy bacteria and viruses, including the the bovine coronavirus, with 99.99% efficiency.
Can This Mask Improve Skin Health?
Studies have shown that copper-infused fabric reduces the tell-tale signs of ageing in the skin by promoting blood flow, collagen and elastin. This helps to keep the skin on your face fresh and vibrant, and these properties have also been shown to drastically reduce dry and itchy skin.
