Retra Products LLC Launches kickstarter Fundraising camaign for a new type of breathing mask

Press Release: June 12, 2020



Retra Products LLC announces the launching of a Kickstarter campaign for M.E HoodTM, the all-in-one mask, eye shield and hood combo. The newly designed hood is made of a four layer mask and eye shield all integrated into a torn-resistant waterproof synthetic outer layer and a breathable inner layer covering the head completely. Retra Products LLC is so happy to announce the launch of a fundraising Kickstarter campaign through https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/retrastrap/me-hood?ref=atrbw0, the official Kickstarter link to support M.E Hood. This Kickstarter is aimed at supporting the official launching of the M.E Hood MaskTM.


The product is patent pending and will be subjected to a clinical test in the future. As a brand that supports clean environment, Retra Products LLC made M.E. HoodTM reusable. This is to ensure a cleaner environment. 


In addition, The M.E. Hood is Adjustable one size fits all thanks to two adjustment buckles. To safeguard people against breathing in or exhaling harmful particles, Omar designed M. E. Hood. To cover the whole head and face thus improving the efficiency of the breathing mask by covering the gap between the breathing mask and the skin. According to studies, This problem of improper fit has been an issue with other masks and eye shields found on the market either reducing filtration efficiency or causing skin irritation and discomfort due to requiring a tight fit. 


Even though the mask is not considered medical, it has yet to be subjected to clinical tests, it is a better choice when compared with usual face masks in the market.  With M.E. Hood breathing mask, users get a chance to have an eye shield, a full head covering and a mask that is made of four layers for even more filtration while keeping it easy to breathe. The filtration layers of this mask are made mostly of natural fabrics.


The Breathing mask integrated in the M.E Hood  has: 

  • Outer Layer: water-resistant non-woven Polypropylene 
  • 600 thread count natural cotton
  • Natural silk known for electrostatic filtration
  • Inner layer: 600 thread count natural cotton for more filtration and moisture control.  

Unlike other masks, the choice of materials used in designing of M.E. Hood breathing mask was inspired by a series of research, especially the one recently conducted and published on the American Chemical Society. The study proved that “filtration efficiencies of a combination of layers such as cotton–Silk was over 80% (for particles 300 nm). It has been assumed that this enhanced performance is likely due to the combined effect of mechanical (Cotton) and electrostatic-based filtration (Silk)”. With that, Retra Products LLC went extra miles to create masks that allow easy breathing and, at the same time, keep particles and germs at bay. ACS Nano 2020, 14, 5, 6339–6347 Publication Date:April 24, 2020.


Omar Abass, the project creator of M.E Hood Breathing Mask, while responding to questions asked by a group of journalists, said, “I have always had a passion for solving problems and finding better ways to create helpful things by thinking outside the box and while keeping it simple. I ask for everyone’s support to bring this M.E. Hood breathing mask to life.” Omar Abass is also the creator of RetraStrap.
