LESS WASH. MORE GREEN.

The NanoFit Mask features a reusable mask skin that does not need to be washed because it has been infused with Polygiene ViralOff®, an antimicrobial treatment that protects the mask. ViralOff is made with recycled silver. Its main ingredient is registered with the EPA. It has no effect on the skin as it doesn’t interfere with the skin’s natural bio-flora.

ViralOff is environmentally certified by Oeko-tex® Eco Passports and in the process of being certified by bluesign®.

Disposable masks

are non-recyclable and must be thrown away after each use -- millions are discarded each month.

Other cloth masks

are not antimicrobial and must be washed after each wear -- adding to their environmental footprint.

The NanoFit Mask

has recyclable filters and does not need to be washed, which means more green for the environment and for your pocketbook.

PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT.

Not having to wash your NanoFit Mask also means using less energy and preventing harmful chemicals from entering your body and the environment. Many laundry detergents have ingredients that are toxic for both humans and our ecosystems, and some of them do not have to be listed on the label.

  • 1,4-Dioxane: found in paints and varnishes; classified by the EPA as a Group 2 “probable human carcinogen”
  • Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS): causes skin irritation and is classified by Health Canada as a “moderate human health priority”
  • Ammonia: corrosive to human tissue upon contact
  • Nonylphenol Ethoxylate: considered by the EPA as “extremely toxic to aquatic organisms”
  • Phenols and Phosphates

Many of these harmful chemicals remain on your clothes after each wash and can be absorbed into the skin, especially when your clothes become damp or wet (sweat, rain, etc). This can cause skin and throat irritation as well as disrupting the endocrine system and healthy microorganisms that live on your skin. In addition, these chemicals do not easily biodegrade and end up contaminating our waterways for generations.

ECO-FRIENDLY FILTERS

Filters for conventional masks depend on static electricity for their effectiveness. They significantly fail – and sometimes even cease to function – when exposed to any humid or wet conditions such as sweat, spit, rain, or regular breathing.

 

This is partially why typical medical masks are recommended to be changed and thrown out multiple times a day. Many cloth masks have no filtration at all, and others offer filters that must be thrown out regularly due to their reliance on traditional filtration. 

In comparison, our advanced nanofiber filters function via mechanical filtration. This means they retain their effectiveness  even after they come into contact with wet or humid conditions.

 

The NanoFit Mask’s replaceable four-layer filter incorporates nanofiltration technology and lasts significantly longer than most other filters, substantially minimizing waste.

 

We recommend changing the nanofiber filter after 15 days of wear. Additionally, our filters are recyclable.
