We offer 100% Copper Coverage on all the natural Triple fabric layers and surfaces of our anti-microbial mask (non-medical cloth mask). 🚫 We do not use nylon or neoprene. This cutting-edge technique adheres the COPPER ions to the fabric with excellent stability and durability, complete coverage leaving no gaps or areas untreated with Copper. This also allows continuous release of COPPER ions to do their germ killing job!
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 100 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.
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.
