Facemasks > Powerplant Design
Based on the WHO three-layered recommendation, our masks are made using a tightly-woven 100% cotton for the outer material. We use a softer and lighter cotton lawn fabric for the lining for the masks to feel comfortable against your skin. Within these layers our masks include a double layer of chiffon which serves as a light-weight electrostatic barrier. It is the combination of these three layers working together that the American Chemical Society has found could filter out 80-99% Covid-19 aerosol particles, depending on their size. However, this percentage only holds true if the fit of the mask is good and fully covers the nose, mouth and chin. Therefore, our masks include a soft and flat nose-wire that adjusts to each wearer to reduce any gaps around the nose.
**These masks have been made by the incredibly talented, Ania Zydron, founder of PPEast London. We are selling these masks at cost price so not making a single penny from them so any discount codes will not work with this product. Yes, you can find some cheaper ones online BUT they are not as comfortable, they are not as fit for purpose as these and they aren’t supporting independent business. If you are looking for some for your business please get in contact with us and we can hand you onto Ania.
(Disclaimer: These masks have been made with the best information we have in producing protective re-usable face masks, however, they are non-surgical and we have to make it clear that they cannot prevent or treat Covid-19. We advise you follow social distancing recommendations when in public)
