Layers in Copper Infused KN99 Mask Explained.

How Many Layers Are There in the Copper Infused KN99 Face Mask?

There are four layers which make up the copper-infused kn99 face mask for maximum protection and comfort.

What is the Role of the First Layer?

The primary layer of cotton is infused with copper ions for anti-bacterial and anti-viral protection. Coronavirus has been reported to live on the outside of medical face masks for up to 7 days. This unique innovation using Copper ions is to help enhance the level of protection and help reduce the risk of spreading the infection that normal face masks (single-use and reusable) cannot provide.

What is the Role of the Second Layer?

The secondary filtration layer is designed to block finer particulate matter for maximum protection. Lab tests conducted on the filtration material highlighted that more than 99% of fine particulate matter was blocked equivalent to KN99 standards. Which is the Chinese equivalent to N99 or FFP3 in the US and Europe respectively.

What is the Role of the Third Layer?

The third layer is made up of a cotton filter lining. The 3D space between them allows superior ventilation and improved moisture absorption.

What is the Role of the Fourth Layer?

The fourth final layer in the Copper KN99 face mask is made of 100% pure, high quality, skin-friendly cotton fabric for comfort.

What Should You Consider When Choosing a Face Mask?

The World Health Organisation recommends the following features should be taken into consideration for non-medical masks:

  1. Numbers of layers of fabric
  2. The breathability of material used
  3. Shape of mask
  4. Fit of mask

Why Infuse Copper into a Face Mask?

Copper alloys have been used throughout history as a natural, safe and long term anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral material. There is a substantial amount of scientific and clinical evidence to now showcase the power of copper ions in the fight against infections.

In 1852 Victor Burq discovered those working with copper had far fewer deaths to cholera than anyone else and did extensive research confirming this. In 1867 he presented his findings to the French Academies of Science and Medicine, informing them that putting copper on the skin was effective at preventing someone from getting cholera.

The anti-microbial effect of Copper ions have since been documented, in peer-reviewed published scientific & medical journals, to destroy the HIV-1 (virus) by more than 99.9% in only 20 minutes, Cytomegalovirus (CMV) by 99.9% in only 20 minutes, 99.9% of aerosol viruses such as Influenza (H1N1 / H9N2) as well being known to destroy Coronavirus.

Not many people are aware of how much technology has advanced, we are able to now infuse copper ions into various materials including cotton and rubber. Therefore transferring the power of anti-microbial copper into everyday items – making them the first layer of defence for you and your loved ones.

What’s The Secret To A Perfect Night’s Sleep?

 

Whether you are at home in your own bed, staying in a hotel or on a flight – sleep is an extremely rare commodity in today’s over-caffeinated, over-worked and gadget-addicted society. Studies show that just one night without proper rest quadruples your risk of catching a cold.

Dr Sara Gottfried, a Havard trained M.D. says artificial light has a hugely disruptive effect on our body clocks. Linked to our circadian rhythm, which regulates cell regeneration, brain wave activity, hormone production and the regulation of glucose and insulin levels, it naturally adjusts to daylight and darkness.

Sleep masks allow your brain to sense complete darkness which increases the production of Melatonin – the chemical of sleep to increase the amount of rapid eye movement sleep for a deeper and more relaxing sleep.

Harley Street cosmetic dermatologist Dr Sam Bunting says copper is vital for healthy skin and promoting collagen, a protein produced by cells to ‘hold’ the skin together that we make less of as we get older‘. Copper has important antioxidant properties,’ she says, which is good because antioxidants are substances that prevent cell damage.
