MaskNow, a UK based start-up has brought a revolutionary face mask to the UK and its neighbouring markets. This mask manufactured by a Swiss hygiene company, Livinguard Technologies, has been creating waves around the world with its scientifically proven technology that can directly inactivate bacteria and viruses, including 99.9% of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
Most face masks that you wear today, be it a cloth mask or a surgical mask, are preventive in nature, MaskNow’s Livinguard face masks are protective and prevent bacteria and viruses from spreading. The principle underlying this Technology is really simple: The textile surface is treated with a strong positive charge. When microbes come in contact with this treated fabric, the microbial cell lining which is negatively charged, is destroyed leading to permanent destruction of microbes.
MaskNow’s masks can be used for extended periods and reused before washing because the fabric covering the filter layer continuously destroys microorganisms upon contact. This significantly diminishes the risk of transferring them to the user and to other surfaces. These masks easily replace about 210 disposable masks, making them not only cost effective but a sustainable choice against the daily disposable ones. Masknow’s Livinguard masks retail at £24.99 and offer savings up to 20% on combo packs of 2 and 5. These are available for purchase at their eCommerce store masknow.co.uk
The technology used in the livinguard face mask has been scientifically proven at The University of Berlin, one of the world’s leading centres of Virology, to destroy 99.9 per cent of Sars-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
The mask is proven to be non-toxic and safe for use and is being very well received in the European markets.
