The Cool Face Mask was born with the vision to let users express something COOL about themselves through our cloth face masks. We are a UK (London) based company that distributes cloth face masks that are Made in Italy, produced with the highest advanced technology, to guarantee the perfect fit. The masks are made of an antimicrobial fibre and treated to be water repellent, breathable and odour blocking: they are washable up to 30 times, making them highly cost-effective.What Is the role of face mask in these recent times?

Face masks are becoming part of our life due to the COVID19 pandemic crisis. A lot has been said about them, so we will try to get some clarity to help you make a thoughtful decision when buying them.

A large proportion of the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) appears to be occurring through airborne transmission of aerosols produced by asymptomatic individuals during breathing and speaking. Aerosols can accumulate, remain infectious in indoor air for hours, and be easily inhaled deep into the lungs.

Given how little is known about the production and air-borne behavior of infectious respiratory droplets, it is difficult to define a safe distance for social distancing. A good comparison is exhaled cigarette smoke. The distance from a smoker at which one smells cigarette smoke indicates the distance in those surroundings at which one could inhale infectious aerosols. Ultimately, the amount of ventilation, number of people, how long one visits an indoor facility, and activities that affect air flow will all modulate viral transmission pathways and exposure.

For these reasons, it is important to wear properly fitted masks in-doors even when 6 ft apart. The WHO recommended universal use of face masks.

What types of face masks are on the market:

Surgical Mask: it's a face mask used by healthcare workers to prevent large respiratory droplets from reaching the mouth of the wearer; also reduce the spread of large respiratory droplets from the person wearing it.

Cloth Mask: it's a cloth face mask that includes various forms of self-made or commercial masks; they are not standardized and not intended for use in healthcare settings.

Personal Protective Equipment: it's a face mask used by healthcare workers designed to protect the wearer from exposure to airborne contaminants. 

Recent studies are showing that the aerosol filtering efficiency of different materials, thicknesses, and layers used in properly fitted cloth masks was recently found to be similar to that of the medical masks that were tested.

Cloth Face Mask that are properly produced will help protect the wearer and the society he lives in, reducing the spread of the virus: Wearing a mask is an act of solidarity!

Nevertheless, wearing a face mask should not create a false feeling of security and the wearer should follow some simple rules when using them.
