CDC Recommended Face Masks ; so we made a superior one JUST FOR YOU!


Wondering what we have been up to during the Covid-19 Pandemic?

After weeks of doing our part by staying home and baking every pizza and cookie recipe we could find (I'm sure most of you can relate) we decided to take a more active role in flattening the curve!

We originally started with donating our proprietary Luminology Technology® fabrics to any and all organizations donating masks to front line workers

After the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received and in response to CDC's recommendations that EVERYONE wears a mask while out in public, we decided to take an even more active role.  


We have now re-engineered our sun-protective clothing company to create Protective Face Masks using the same chemical-free, UPF 50+ Luminology Technology® fabrics. For every one purchased we donate one to a front line worker in need.

According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a simple face covering can reduce the spread of the Coronavirus by blocking outgoing respiratory droplets from coughs or sneezes of an infected person.

However, there is variation in how much masks might protect the wearer from incoming germs, depending on the fit and quality of the material used.

The biggest challenge is finding a mask that is made with a fabric that is tightly woven to protect you from respiratory droplets, but breathable and comfortable to wear for prolonged periods.
Here is where our mask which is made with our proprietary, all-natural, Luminology Technology ® fabric comes to the rescue.

The yarn is infused with a plant-based oil, derived from forsythia, which gives the fabric its performance and functional properties. Never treated with chemicals, our fabrics are ideal for making single-layered masks that are protective, soft, elegant, and hypoallergenic.


We believe our single layered masks are superior to other multiple layered cloth masks because they have been tested in the laboratory to contain all the following properties:

Antimicrobial (odor resistant)
- Moisture impermeable (protects from respiratory droplets) 
Temperature regulating (allows for comfort no matter the climate)
Soft and lightweight (allows for comfort and ease)
Breathable (you can breathe comfortably)
UPF 50 + (blocks 98% of harmful UVA/UVB rays)
Quick drying (air dries in less than 30 minutes)
Fade resistant (looks new wash after wash)
- 46% Filtration efficiency (over twice as much as a 3 layered cotton mask)


In addition to being comfortable and protective, we strive to make our masks as fashionable and sleek as possible! Thank you Allure magazine for agreeing with us and featuring us in your May issue!

 

It is worth noting here that although our masks are not intended for medical use, they have been tested in a lab to have a 46% filtration rate (NaCl filtration efficiency) which is over twice as much as a 3 layered cotton mask and approaches the filtration efficiency of a surgical mask.
