Scuba Fabric Reusable Face Mask

The material is a layered, lightweight stretch fabric. The mask can be washed over 100 times depending on everyday use. Masks are multi-coloured and depending on supply during lockdown changes daily.

The ‘Snug Fitting’ of the masks protects the airways from airborne germs which otherwise could be inhaled.

The layered scuba handmade protective reusable face mask does not have any medical certificates. Face masks are considered protective equipment and do NOT require medical certification unless they are meant for medical use. 

The mask provides a soft and very comfortable fit that works better than normal material masks. Ideally when washing to steam iron out any potential pathogens.

On receipt of your mask, handwash with normal washing soap, allow to dry and wear. 

Attention

After every use don’t forget to wash and iron with steam (no less than the 2nd ironing setting through protective cloth) to destroy the bacteria that might have collected on the mask!

The well know Centre for Disease COntrol in the USA has put out a statement that all should wear masks in any public area. See more here.

The Benefit of Wearing a Mask

 

“Everyone in SA should wear a cloth mask in public.”
– Health Minister Zweli Mkhize, 10 April 2020

 

 

These non-surgical fabric masks are made from a woven double-layer of fabric. These face masks are not guaranteed to prevent you from contracting the Coronavirus however studies have shown they minimise your risk. Their purpose is to prevent coughing and sneezing onto other people thereby contaminating others; to lessen hand-mouth contact, and to respect social distancing. The masks:

– will help you not to touch your face

– will protect from others’ sneezes

– will deter spontaneous, unwanted kisses

No return policy and refunds accepted due to hygiene factors.

Masks are multi-coloured and depending on supply during lockdown, patterns could change.
