Mask up with comfort in 2021

Happy New Year! We all picked up some survival strategies in 2020 to get through one of the most stressful years many of us will experience in our lifetimes. With the rollout of vaccinations, we will start to see some normalcy in 2021. Until then, we will need to continue to follow health protocols. That means masking up, social distancing, and staying at home as much as possible.

One of my survival strategies in 2021 was finding a mask that was comfortable. I work in a medical setting, so I wore a N95 when I worked on clients. By the end of the day, my skin would often be irritated. That’s why I searched for a cloth mask that would give my skin a break and meet the federal government’s recommended standards for non-medical cloth masks. After trying many different types of masks, I fell in love with the copper-infused face mask by enVy™.

Some of you may already be aware of the antimicrobial properties of copper. enVY drew on the research and development that went into enVy’s copper-infused anti-wrinkle pillow. enVy met the gap in the marketplace for a copper-infused, triple-layer mask made with natural fibres. It does not feel heavy or scratchy.

Made in Canada, enVy’s copper-infused face mask is powered by a copper-ion technology called NatuVerex which provides 100 per cent copper coverage. The mask also meets breathability standards. Some of the features that sold me on the mask include:

  • AATCC-100 tested at a 99.9 per cent microbial kill rate even after 25 washes

  • Breathability tested (Delta P test) in compliance with ASTM F2100-19

  • Triple-layer design made with natural fabrics

  • Soft ear loops that hold mat in place without irritated ears

  • Adjustable nose piece

You can read the studies posted on about the anti-microbial benefits of copper. It is important to note that this mask is not intended for medical use. eNvy make no medical claims about the efficacy of preventing the transmission of COVID-19 and assumes no liability. The edge that this mask has over regular cloth masks is that copper ions are always killing germs. It has a self-sanitizing effect, but you still need to wash your masks.

After wearing the copper-infused face mask by enVy, I can’t wear any other. Goodbye maskne and raw skin! I reached out to enVy and told them I was so impressed with the masks that I want to make them available for my clients. Click here toorder a two-pack of the masks for $59.95.

As always, I am here to answer your questions. I can’t wait to see you in 2021!
