4 x Reusable Black Face Masks
We’re going to tell you a bit about the masks. Actually, we’re going to tell you a lot about them (trust us, this is the stuff you need to know).
Ok, first, you can reuse our masks...
- They’re designed to stop ‘droplet projection’ which basically means droplets of moisture carrying the virus from being breathed in or out.
- They have a water resistant barrier that is guaranteed to last 15 washes.
- They’re made from two layers of 100% organic cotton.
- They are treated to be Anti Bacterial & Anti Static.
- They come in one size, which is suitable for everybody.
- They’ll help protect you and others – but they’re not designed for professional medical use.
Even if you don’t end up buying one of our masks, please make sure you look out for these kinds of features to make sure you’re getting a mask that will actually work.
- We treat the fabric of our masks to make it anti-bacterial.
- We also make the fabric anti-static so it’s more comfortable to wear.
- There’s a 100% waterproof barrier, guaranteed up to 15 washes, that prevents water particles carrying the virus from getting through – while also making it easier for you to breathe.
- Our masks are made according to AFNOR/AFNOR recommendations (SPEC S76-001). You can find out what that actually means on our blog.
Only wear your mask for four hours a day – then you’ll need to wash it in the washing machine before wearing it again.
Oh, and while our masks do a great job of keeping you safe – you still need to stick to the social distancing guidelines in your country.
Wash and reuse your mask. Simply pop it in the washing machine on a 60°c wash and make sure it runs for at least 30 minutes.
You should also dry them in a tumble drier for 20 minutes at 80°c rather than letting them dry in the air.
And, because no one wants to put on a crumpled face, you can even iron the mask at 120-130°c.
5 STEPS TO PUTTING ON YOUR MASK
We know, five steps seems like a lot for putting a mask on your face – but this is the best way to make sure you’re protected.
- Before you touch the mask, wash your hands with soap & water or an antibacterial solution.
- Hold the mask by the elastic bands and get it in the right place.
- Fully cover your mouth and nose with the mask – you can make sure it’s in the right place by doing a big breath out.
- Do a funny Darth Vader voice. Everyone does.
- Every time you change your mask, make sure you go back to step one.
WHEN DO YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR MASK
- When it gets wet
- After four hours of wearing it
And when you need to take off your mask, make sure you only touch the elastic bands.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL STUFF
There’s no need to compromise between looking after your own health and keeping the planet healthy too.
The organic cotton we use to make our masks is an all-natural fibre. It’s totally free of GMO and uses a lot less water than ordinary cotton.
Best of all, there are absolutely no chemicals, fertilisers or pesticides involved in the growing and our farmers regularly rotate their crops to keep their soil healthier and more fertile.
Finally, all the waste that gets generated from the ginning of the cotton is recycled for the animal food industry.
