How to Keep Reusable Face Masks Clean Between Washes
Material face masks – even homemade ones – can slow the spread of Coronavirus. They are especially useful in confined, busy spaces – buses, trains, and shops – and if you are sick or caring for someone who is sick. But re-usable cloth masks work by stopping potentially harmful droplets as the wearer breathes out – so can quickly become unhygienic and uncomfortable.
In response, Probiotic Group have developed a brand-new product specifically to keep reusable face masks clean between washes. EVAA+ Probiotic Face Mask Hygiene Spray refreshes your mask between washes. It works in a safe, natural way to eliminate unpleasant smells, including stale saliva and sweat, and break down organic dirt and grime. It is vegan, sustainable, non-toxic and non-irritating.
How does EVAA+ Probiotic Hygiene Spray Work?
EVAA+ Probiotic Face Mask Hygiene Spray works by introducing a natural, healthy microflora directly onto the fabric of the mask. This safely and naturally creates a protective barrier for the wearer. The spray has ingredients that actively benefit health: ‘good’ (probiotic) bacteria, naturally sourced from plants. These helpful probiotics work in a safe, natural and mechanical way using a process called bio-augmentation. They simply out-compete harmful (pathogenic) bacteria for space and organic food matter. This reduces the risk of harmful bacteria causing disease.
Chemical-Free and Anti-Allergenic Formula
EVAA+ Probiotic Face Mask Hygiene Spray has an anti-allergy formula, which helps reduce organic-based respiratory reactions to bio-allergens including dust mite, pollen and pet hair. Read our News Post to find out more: Hygiene Spray for Reusable Face Masks Helps Allergy Suffers.
In addition, the spray meets NF EN ISO 16000-9 and NF EN ISO 16000-11 (VOC) standards. That is to say, science validates the spray as not toxic to living organisms and is not harmful to the lungs. And it is not a disinfectant, as these can be harmful to the respiratory tract. You can also read the safety data sheet.
