What are Nano-Silicon Face Masks?
The photocatalytic antimicrobial surface of the mask has 25 nanometers diameter of nano silicon on each of the three mask layers which absorb light and produce Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). These powerful microbiocides can kill viruses and bacteria and other harmful pathogens by breaking down the bacteria cell wall and attacking their DNA, ensuring they die and cannot reproduce.
Each mask has 3 layers of nano-silicon fabric with the antibacterial surface to prevent cross-contamination each time the mask is put on or removed. Made from 100% cotton which means it's comfortable and breathable. Cotton is biodegradable and recyclable reducing the environmental impact that disposable masks can cause. The mask can kill 99% of bacteria on contact and the masks can be worn for up to 24 hours or for several hours per day over 3-8 days and there are no bad odours due to the bacterial coating.
One mask can last at least 6 months so they are a highly cost-effective solution. Test proves bactericidal effective after 50 washes. 10 cm x 19 cm ( h x w).

Why are Nano-Silicon Face Masks more protective than other masks?
Whilst most other cotton and reusable face masks need to be washed after every use, the Nano-Silicon face mask can be worn for up to 24 hours or for several hours per day over 3-8 days and there are no bad odours due to its self-cleaning properties. It is also tested to be 99.9% bactericidal effective after 50 washes.
Safety & Cross-Contamination
Whilst most other face masks gather bacteria, viruses and pathogens on their surface which can then spread to your hands and other key touchpoint areas, Nano-Silicon antibacterial coating provides a self-cleaning surface as bacteria is being killed on contact with the mask which also helps to prevent cross-contamination when the mask is removed.
Most disposable masks are made from polypropylene which is hard to recycle and takes decades to decay. The Nano-Silicon face mask is 100% cotton which is biodegradable and recyclable and reduces the environmental impact that single-use masks cause. The masks have no added bleach, fluorescent agents or chemical additives. One mask can last at least 6 months.
