The pandemic sparked a genesis of multiple mask designs. From funky masks with floral print and Spongebob Squarepants to serious N95 respirators and face shields, we’ve seen it all. As long as you’re covering your nose and mouth, then you’re safe and good to go– right?
Well, sort of. If you’re wearing any type of mask out in public, you’re at least being safer. However, the type of mask you wear, how you wear it, and how well it fits are all factors to keep in mind when effectively protecting yourself and others.
A face mask is only as effective as its fit. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a face mask should cover the nose and mouth and “fit snugly against the sides of your face” in order to prevent getting and spreading COVID-19.
So, for those of us who are wearing masks that slip off or don’t quite fit right on our face, we might need to switch things up and find a mask that actually fits. No one wants to be that person!
The good news is our ORÅ Nano Masks address these requirements by using highly-developed designs. The masks include adjustable straps, a nose bridge to secure it to the top of the nose, and three different sizes (because one size does not fit all).
The material composition is made from poly-nylon spandex, so it has some stretch to it as well as mesh for breathability. A mask that fits comfortably and still allows you to breathe easily? You heard it here first.
ORÅ Nano Masks have a three-layer nanofiltration membrane. Sounds pretty scientific, yeah? Well, that’s because it is.
To get even more technical, the layers include polyethylene [PET] outer layers and a polyvinylidene fluoride [PVDF] nanofiber inner layer. Nanofiltration is mainly used in water purification and in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. This nanofiltration process is applied to ORÅ brand filters through electrospinning nanofibers which have been independently tested to achieve over 99 percent filter efficiency of 100nm particles.
So, not only is this mask lightweight and allows for easy breathing, but it actually works to filter out the scary stuff.
Another reason ORÅ Nano Masks might be a good choice for you is that they are environmentally conscious in both materials and processes.
Our brand works to decrease the amount of waste in the landfills and oceans by making these highly effective masks reusable and washable. The materials used for the masks have a low carbon footprint; as mentioned before, the filters are made out of polyvinylidene fluoride [PVDF] instead of polypropylene [PP], making them more sustainable to manufacture than most other masks.
Also, the filters are recyclable and all the packaging used is compostable. Therefore we’re not just taking care of the heath of ourselves and each other, but also the planet.
With all this, how do you know if our ORÅ Nano Mask is the right mask for you?
At the end of the day, everyone (hopefully) will wear the mask that makes the most sense for them. However, at this point, we’ve established how important it is to have the right mask that checks all the boxes.
If you want a mask that comfortably fits to your face, look no further.
If you want a mask that challenges an old archaic design with a new and improved one backed by scientific research and development, this is the one.
Finally, if you care about the environment and the legacy our carbon footprint leaves for future generations, go on and get yourself an ORÅ Nano Mask today!
