The enVy™ COPPER infused Face mask (Non-medical Cloth mask with Natural Breathable Fabrics)

When the pandemic hit we were already using this amazing anti-microbial COPPER fabric in our COPPER line of pillows.  Creating a non-medical cloth mask with Copper was an easy pivot. You won’t see Nylon or Neoprene in any of our products including our COPPER infused Face Masks.  Because we use the advanced germ killing COPPER  by NatuVerex™ we are able to obtain a 100% COPPER infused maximum coverage into the matrix of our super soft natural fabrics ( NO nylon or neoprene here).  NatuVerex™ (a Canadian Copper fabric company) has developed this next generation anti-microbial science that uses a specialized COPPER nanoparticles technique which is able to be permanently grafted to the entire surface and interlace our natural fabric using a unique bonding technique.  Perfect for our enVy COPPER anti-microbial mask.

The result is a comfortable, protective, droplet blocking and breathable anti-microbial mask we can easily wear when we need to social distance.  Our Copper Infused Face Masks offer a TRIPLE layer of natural fibres with our exclusive insanely gentle SoftEAR™ loops and adjustable Nose Wire.

Our enVy™ Copper infused face mask is a 3 layered PPE Masks are available in 3 colours with TENCEL™ (White)  or a Cotton Blend (Black or Grey) . All our mask colours come in S|M (suitable for 6 yrs to petite adults) and the Grey and Black mask comes in S|M and M|L (see dimensions below) or for assistance with sizing click on the sizing icon above.

All of our masks are available in S|M which are suitable for most youth as young as 6 years to petite adults.  Our M|L is slightly longer from nose wire to chin and fits most average to larger adults. Below is some help with picking the best size for you and yours.

Our Exclusive Anti-Microbial Mask with Insanely gentle SoftEAR Loops and Adjustable Nose Wire

Aside from the natural soft fabrics we use, our COPPER infused Face Masks all come with the new SoftEAR™ loops which are made from super soft stretch material as well as our adjustable nose wire. If you are needing to adjust the loops you can do so by sliding the cord through the loop channel, finding the attachment, cutting to your length, adding a new stitch or tying a knot and sliding back into the channel.

Our COPPER Technology is a Game Changer

According to Michael Schmidt, a professor of microbiology and immunology at the Medical University of South Carolina, who has studied the use of copper in medical products says that the advantage of copper in a mask is,

“As the viral particles go out of you through the copper mask into the environment, they will die.”

BUT he also warns about how much copper is actually in many copper mask out on the market who may only have a few threads of copper yarn woven into the fabric,

 “The effectiveness of a mask depends on how much copper is in it. Virus particles are very small, so they would need to actually encounter the copper to be deactivated. The best copper masks would have copper incorporated into every fiber, rather than just on one single layer embedded inside the mask.”

Schmidt believes that if a reputable copper mask company offers  these types of masks, it could be a game changer.

“If we begin to incorporate copper masks into our strategy … we may be able to short-circuit a second wave that’s coming.”

And that’s exactly what we do with our Copper infused face mask with anti-microbial power!!

Why Copper Infused Masks are better than masks without Copper?

One way the virus can be transmitted is if someone touches an infected surface—like a doorknob—then touches their mask to adjust it. In this situation, the copper in our non-medical cloth mask would kill these viruses, whereas they would linger on a traditional cloth or non-woven (surgical/ medical) mask, potentially contaminating the wearer.

“The outside of a mask can pick up the virus. You can pick it up with your fingers, rub your eye, pick your nose, lick your finger, and voila, you’re contaminated.”~ Michael G. Schmidt, Ph.D

A Copper treated natural fibres may be better than a the non-woven surgical/medical masks

New research out of University of Illinois by Science and engineering team: When a natural common non-medical cloth mask uses 2 layers or 3 layers, the droplet efficiency was 98.6% compared to the 96.3% efficiency of the 3-layered medical mask made with synthetic materials or nylon.  Yet, the 2-layered cotton mask still has comparable if not better breathability compared to the medical mask (non-woven material and nylon / synthetic material). Breathability is a critical parameter for any mask design. A high efficiency mask material with low breathability will have air flow through the sides allowing droplets to enter or exit the respiratory system. This is a function of the fact that fabric masks are hydrophilic (moisture retaining) vs surgical masks are hydrophobic (moisture repelling).

The enVy™ COPPER infused Face Masks are made from Cotton or TENCEL™ (both natural fibres used in our non-medical cloth mask)  provides the optimal balance of ‘breathability‘ and ‘droplet resistance’ and most importantly this gives this anti-microbial mask the opportunity for the COPPER ion technology in the mask to go to work on the potential pathogens within these droplets that have been trapped in or filtered through the mask.

 

COPPER has long been studied for its Anti-Microbial Benefits

📌 The Copper infused TENCEL or  Cotton blends fabric on our masks have been proven to eradicate 99% MRSA, Staphylococcus Aureus and Klebsiella Pneumoniae.
 
📌 COPPER impregnated fabrics have potent biocidal abilities as shown in this 2006 study published in The Journal of Industrial Textiles
 
📌 According to a 2015 Study in Health Environments Research and Design Journal, some common germs proven to be killed by Copper include E. Coli, Influenza A, Norovirus and C. Difficile.
 
📌 Coronavirus is inactivated within hours of coming into contact with Copper alloy surfaces.
 
📌 AFTER 25 washes our enVy Copper face anti-microbial mask continue to offer the exceptional anti-microbial testing results of testing  AACTT-100 at 99.9% … so we stopped doing laundry!
 
📌 Human skin is not sensitive to COPPER and, in fact, is shown to improve skin texture, skin tone and skin wellness.
 
📌 Tests pending for COVID-19

 

The New Science Behind our enVy COPPER☄️Technology

enVy™ Pillow has been using this powerful natural element for years in our anti-aging enVy COPPER Pillow technology. So when the pandemic started, producing enVy™ COPPER masks was an easy addition to the Germ killing protection we needed.

We offer the best and latest Copper nanoparticle technology with superior efficacy, durability and powerful anti-microbial benefits which is completely infused on the natural fabrics we use on our enVy™ Pillow liners and PPE masks without losing the natural fabric’s true feel and breathability.  We are excited to partner with NatuVerex who has developed this latest COPPER anti-microbial science for performance fabrics that utilizes the next generation of technology. This new COPPER nanoparticle technology is grafted on the entire surface of the material using a unique bonding technique.  By using a specialize tethering system or “bridging”  between the fabric fibres and the copper ions, this technology  creates a concrete like bond.  Compared to other COPPER products that uses copper polyester yarn which is then woven into textiles with every  5 or more rows of fabric (therefore not covering the entire surface),Natuverex Copper technology has the Copper nanoparticles uniformly distributed and firmly bonded on the entire surface of our natural fabrics (not nylon or neoprene) we use for our pillow liners and enVy™ COPPER infused masks (every layer,  inside and out).   The various fabrics we use in our products are treated with the copper nanoparticles and has shown excellent and efficient antimicrobial activity against MRSA / Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and Kliebsella pneumonia with the same germ killing effects tested even after washing 25 cycles. The results show excellent laundering tolerance and durability.

The key cutting edge feature here is that the reinforced concrete-like antibacterial copper nanoparticles applied to our enVy™ COPPER materials are bonded to the fabric using this unique bridging system.  The result is a unique Copper stability even when the material is bent, stretched, rubbed and of course washed!

It is also important to note that the process Copper uses to kill bacteria requires the release of Copper ions.  Many traditional copper coating processes had the copper particles stuck in the matrix of the fabric which minimizes (or prevents) the release of copper ions rendering them useless.  Using the COPPER technology by NatuVerex where the Copper has a strong interfacial connection to the fabric, the copper ions release freely when required to destroy bacteria and other harmful pathogens.

Our “Masks Forward” Mission ?

We continue to use proceeds from the sales of our enVy COPPER Face Mask towards our initiative to put these non-medical cloth mask with copper on the faces of our essential workers in higher risk environments such as shelters and care workers.  Reserving the N95 masks for our frontline workers caring directly with COVID-19 patients.

As we begin to open up more business and services, wearing your COPPER infused masks has become a new normal.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, WHO and many regulating bodies are  now recommending (and in some cases making it mandatory) that everyone wear face coverings when in public in an effort to keep us safe and to avoid unwittingly spreading the COVID-19 virus .

Due to the continuous germ attacking nature of our fabrics, our COPPER infused masks address the common misuse of disposable face masks where the possibilities of mask surface contamination caused by our environment or  touching of our mask surface is minimized.

I Protect You. You Protect Me

Based on the newest data about COVID-19 infected persons being asymptomatic we all need to behave as if we ALL have the virus by maintaining social distancing, practicing hyper-vigilance in hand washing and now adding the additional layer of protection by wearing a mask when in the community. The WHO has always had the position that personal face masks worn by asymptomatic people are recommended in severe epidemics or pandemics to reduce transmission in the community.

“Where once we felt non-medical cloth masks were worn to protect ourselves, we are now aware that wearing masks will protect others.  Please continue to be diligent with hand washing and social distancing while using this mask. 
When we all wear masks we are saying: I protect you. You protect me.” ~ Kathy and Kim, enVy™ Pillow Nurses.
 
 📌 Avoid touching your face or your mask surface.  Before donning your mask WASH your hands.  Before removing your mask WASH your hands.  Remove from the ear loops only avoiding the fabric surface of the mask as germs may be on the surface and transfer to your hands (clean mask as recommended and hang to dry). Wash your hands immediately after removing and continue social distancing.

       *Your Mask only needs to be washed when visibly soiled as the COPPER is always at work killing invisible germs.

HOW TO WASH and CARE FOR YOUR MASK:

 

  • Because of the self-sanitizing characteristics of our copper mask, your mask is always killing germs.  How often you wash it is a personal preference.  For general public use, many people have their masks at the ready in their purse, car or at the front door for when needed allowing them to self sanitize between uses. Our AACTT testing shows shown a 99.9% complete germ kill).  Others in higher risk areas may wish to wash their masks daily.
  • The mask should be washed in warm water by hand or on a gentle cycle with a delicate liquid fabric detergent (we recommend a mesh lingerie bag). TAKE SPECIAL CARE of the bendable nose wire to avoid crimping and possibly breaking the wire. 
  • After washing we recommend to pat the mask dry with a towel and lay flat to dry. It may be tumble dried low on a gentle setting in a lingerie bag to protect straps and fabric. 
  • Iron on a low setting if desired.

 

Avoid touching your face or your mask surface.  Before donning your mask WASH your hands.  Before removing your mask WASH your hands.  Remove from the ear loops only avoiding the fabric surface of the mask as germs may be on the surface and transfer to your hands (clean mask as recommended below and preferably lay flat to dry). Wash your hands immediately after removing and continue social distancing.  “I protect you.  You protect me.”
