Buy Canadian and stay safe!

Wearing a face mask has become a critical part of Canada’s campaign to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and protecting yourself from infection. But not all masks are made equal and there are many poor quality and homemade options flooding the market.

What your family needs during this time is:

  1. Accurate information.
  2. A trusted Canadian supplier.
  3. A reliable, top quality mask.

 

Just the facts

There is strengthening evidence that three-ply surgical masks are far more protective in preventing infection than reusable ones. In a recent study, scientists looked at the most and least effective masks to use their recommendations were clear.

The experiments showed that “bandanas, handkerchiefs, fleece balaclavas) and neck gaiters offered very little protection, while N95 respirators, surgical masks performed better.

 

What to look for in the RIGHT mask?

  1. Breathability – the mask should be easy to breath in.
  2. Comfort and scent – the mask should be soft to the touch and have no scent.
  3. Fit – the mask should have no gaps around your nose, mouth, and chin.
  4. Flame resistant – the middle layer should not catch fire if lit.
