Natural Silver’s Properties
Natural Silver’s ion properties have a proven long-standing reputation as an effective way to resist and kill more then 650 kinds of harmful bacteria. Natural Silver works against bacteria only in ion form — it must lose an electron to become positively charged. Silver ions pierce through the external surfaces of the cells and damage their DNA, as well as the protein structure, halting their metabolism and reproduction until they die. After the cells have become inactive, silver ions leave but continue to act against microbes, delivering a constant antimicrobial performance with no toxicity or side effects.
How our masks work?
Our Highly Conductive Silver-infused fabric embeds the silver directly into the fibers rather than giving them a surface treatment this results in the use nanoparticles instead of conventional silver - nanoparticles release at the right rate to keep a thin silver film on the fabric, preventing a bacterial foothold. Nano-silver particles will not dissolve in water, but will increase their activity, and produce silver ions through slow-release, the bactericidal effect is even better.
Who should wear a mask?
If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected viral infection. Wear an Antibacterial face mask if you are coughing or sneezing to prevent the spreading of the Virus.
Disposable face masks cannot block all pathogens and do not kill them making a discarded mask a route for disease as the pathogens multiply in its fibers.
Washable , reusable masks with silver ions and anti-pathogen properties could provide a potent prevention tool against Viral Infections.
"The Highly Conductive Silver Particles continuously release ions, which are able to kill viruses and bacteria that comes into contact keeping our Silver-Nano face masks antibacterial and eliminating other possible hazards”

How did Asian Countries contain the Coronavirus so fast?
Asian countries that have been successful in containing the virus without locking down society, such as Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan, routinely use masks.
As of March 17, the three countries together claim to have fewer than 1,000 cases of the coronavirus — despite having close connections to China’s Hubei province, where the epidemic originated and exploded late last year. There are many explanations for this success, including the rapid recognition of the threat, swift application of lessons learned during the 2002 SARS outbreak, and widespread testing and strict isolation of confirmed cases. But masks are also used routinely for protection against infectious diseases in these countries, and universal mask use is part of their coronavirus guidance. In Taiwan, masks are such an important first line of defense that artificial intelligence is used to create live maps of local supplies of face masks so that citizens know where to get them
Who should wear a mask?
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, public health authorities have advised us that masks are not necessary and should not be used by the general public for protection against the rapidly spreading virus. While it is true that medical surgical masks should be prioritised for use by medical professionals at greatest risk for infection, the rest of us can and should wear other protective face coverings. There are compelling scientific reasons for this.
In the Media: THE GAURDIAN
Wearing a face mask is certainly not an iron-clad guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols, can penetrate masks. However, masks are effective at capturing droplets, which is a main transmission route of coronavirus, and some studies have estimated a roughly fivefold protection versus no barrier alone (although others have found lower levels of effectiveness).
If you are likely to be in close contact with someone infected, a mask cuts the chance of the disease being passed on. If you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, or have been diagnosed, wearing a mask can also protect others. So masks are crucial for health and social care workers looking after patients and are also recommended for family members who need to care for someone who is ill – ideally both the patient and carer should have a mask...Read more
