The Turtleback black fabric face mask have a Cotton Pocket and a Non-Rusting flexible metal insert to create a seal around your nose. The adjustable ear-loops are made of elastic for a snug fit around your face. Our masks are made here in the USA. If you're a non-medical professional looking to reduce the risk, we recommend using our Turtleback masks. Although these are NOT N95 or rated for medical use many are saying that the protections afforded by a simple fabric mask are enough to justify their use.
Here are the benefits of the Turtleback face mask:
- Prevent you from touching your nose and mouth.
- Better dispersion of air outflows (you must still cough into your elbow)
- Some filtration of air inflow to reduce the risk of inhaling germs
- Hand or machine washable with Soap and Water - must air-dry
- Creating an alternative to the N95 masks that are desperately needed by medical personnel
