Meet Mäsksup - the perfect stylish alternative to the standard preventative mask.
Mäsksup is perfect for summer with the ultra lightweight breathable microfiber outer layer.
Why Mäsksup masks?
Comfortable: Each mask is shaped for maximum comfort with a built-in metal nose bar and adjustable straps for a perfect fit. They are lined with a skin-friendly cotton cloth inner layer.
Eco Friendly: Each mask can be reused up to 60 times (providing 600hrs of protection) and is designed with eco-friendly material: NATURAL LATEX to minimize our impact on the environment while promoting ethical responsibility.
Design: Each mask created by Mäsksup is designed with a bold print or colorful on-trend pattern that captures your unique sense of style perfectly.
Mäsksup reusable masks have four layers with a microfiber outer layer, a skin-friendly cotton cloth inner layer and most importantly, two layers of filter media sewn into the middle of the mask: a highly efficient particle filter composite and natural latex layer. Mäsksup is also printed with safety for respirator inks and dyes.
Caution: This product contains natural rubber latex which may cause allergic reactions.
Mäsksup masks have been tested and certified at a FFP2 Level, indicating that they can prevent greater than 95% against particles as small as 0.1 microns (0.1PM) (Ref: Lab Report on BFE & PFE). Because of this, Mäsksup masks can keep you safe from harmful particles that are larger than 0.1 microns. Specially crafted to effectively filter out PM 2.5 particles, Mäsksup masks offer a high level of prevention from dust, pollen, shavings, mold, biologics and other microscopic airborne contaminants found in poor air quality.
How to use:
Before your first use, completely wash the mask using any soap and immerse it in boiling water for a few seconds. Allow to fully dry before using.
To wear, extend the two straps of the mask and place them behind the ears with the white cotton layer facing inwards and adjust the metal nose bar, fitting on the chin. Adjust the tension of the straps if necessary.
After 10 hours of continuous usage, gently wash the mask by hand or scrub with a soft brush and clean it by immersing it in boiling water for a few seconds. Hang it up to dry and do not wring water from the mask.
Usage: Daily antibacterial prevention and fully hand-washable. Benefits: The natural latex mask effectively prevents and blocks any respiratory secretions. It has a bacteriostatic effect, offers insulation from dust and is suitable for daily prevention. Other Notes: Natural latex is a pure natural product. It will turn yellow under sunlight and in boiling water, but still maintains its antibacterial effect. Storage Conditions: This mask must be kept intact during transport and should be stored in a cool and dry place to avoid high temperatures.
All About Natural Latex
With the rising popularity of Mäsksup stylish and versatile face masks, we have received many questions in regards to our use of natural latex in their construction, as some customers do have sensitivities or allergies to this material. We are more than happy to address these questions and provide more information about the material itself!
1.5mm Natural Latex Layer
While it is used it to produce our FFP2 level tested and certified masks, it is not a primary material. Rather, it is a 1.5mm layer insert in the center of the mask, resting between a skin-friendly cotton cloth inner layer and the filter and outer layer. This way, the natural latex is never in direct contact with the skin when you wear any of the face masks, lowering the risk of an allergic reaction if you do have a sensitivity or allergy.
Use of Natural Latex
Natural latex is a material commonly used in medical practices and the creation of medical-grade masks, such as surgical masks. This is because natural latex is impermeable, which means that no liquids or gas can pass through it. In other words, natural latex helps keep out allergens and other particles.
Additionally, natural latex is more environmentally friendly to source and produce than synthetic latex. Rather than being produced in a lab or factory, natural latex starts as a milky white liquid that comes from the Hevea-Brasiliensis tree, also known as the rubber tree. It is then thickened before being used in production of various products. No chemicals are involved in the creation of natural latex, minimizing the impact on the environment.
Why use Natural Latex
Because natural latex has amazing antibacterial and protective properties, we’ve included it in all of our protective masks. Not only does it protect you from bacteria on the outside of the mask, it also helps to purify your breath and contain the bacteria within your mouth. Additionally, natural latex is long-lasting, highly elastic and breathable, making our masks comfortable for children to wear for long periods of time without respiratory issues or distress.
