Efficacy of Silver Ion Technology
Posted on December 07 2020
Majority of our customers are well-informed about the importance of wearing a good quality mask. They typically find us as they search with the keywords such as 'antimicrobial face masks in Canada', 'kids masks in Canada' and so on. And some of our customers are already well familiar with the Silver Ion technology and its use in medicine and sanitation. Therefore, one of the most frequent inquiries we receive from our customers is regarding the efficacy of our masks.
We do not want to unintentionally give a misleading indication that by simply wearing our masks you would be COVID-proof. Therefore we kept the test results conducted by independent third parties internal. It is very important to highlight that there are other factors that play a role in someone's falling ill, such as;
- not maintaining safe distance to others, especially asymptomatic people who are seemingly fine but carrying the virus unknowingly,
- getting in to the crowded places or
- indoors that are not well ventilated, or
- not washing your hands often or well enough, or
- not wearing (or taking off) your mask right.
We would like to ensure that our customers are well aware that our products are sold as non-medical masks, with no guarantees or claims that the wearer would be able to prevent contracting COVID-19 by simply wearing the mask.
Further, to educate Canadians and especially our kids, we have a Kids' Corner, specifically made for this purpose.
