Have you ever heard of a mask that actively neutralizes disease-causing microorganisms, even the infamous Covid-19 virus, while it effectively eliminates the bacteria that causes acne? Yup, you’ve read it right.
This Israeli-made mask is proven to eliminate pathogens– bacteria, viruses, fungi, including the dreaded SARS-CoV-2. And, as if it wasn’t good enough yet, a recent test showed over 99% efficacy against acne-causing bacteria.
I’m talking about the SonoMaskTM, made from a breathable, poly-cotton blend fabric, embedded with zinc-oxide which gives it antimicrobial properties.
I first read about it on the news online. So, I started searching for articles related to it.
When Reader’s Digest listed it as the best basic face mask in the market right now, I did not hesitate to get one for myself and each for my family.
I ordered the SonoMaskTM via their website, they ship from Israel and deliver worldwide.
Ordering was a breeze. The website was easy to navigate. Customers are provided with a size guide so they can measure and compare which size best fit their faces (small, medium, large).
One SonoMaskTM costs $45, but they have a pricing system where the price per unit goes down as the number of your purchase increases.
I bought five, so I got them for $29 each, and paid a total of $145. They accept major credit cards, Apple and Google pay. Shipping is also free for orders $48 and up so yey for that! 🙂
The delivery was fast. I received my orders after only four days! Talk about express.
Here are my orders:
By the way, the antimicrobial properties of the mask last up to 55 washes. And, because it has already been embedded with a potent germicide, they recommend hand-washing it only once a week.
So, doing the math… if washed weekly, SonoMaskTM will be able to actively protect its wearer from pathogens for a year or so. Not bad.
I’ve been using SonoMaskTM for a month now and I think it’s worth the price.
It is breathable, the fabric is not that thick. My face fits perfectly on it, thanks to their size guide. The ear loops/head straps are adjustable, so I’m always comfortable.
It’s easy to hand-wash, too. I only use mild soap (I prefer SafeguardTM), never use bleach or fabric softener!
It’s also a greener alternative to disposable face masks.
So far, I haven’t seen any irritation or new pimples on my face, even when wearing it the whole day.
Do I recommend it?
It’s hard not to.
I think the far-reaching reason why I would recommend it to anyone is that it goes beyond what a normal mask would do (a passive barrier from infection). It’s proven to be effective against the Covid-19 virus (even the H1N1).
That information alone lessens the anxiety of going out, when one really has to.
There is so much uncertainty taking place around us now. Knowing that I have a reliable product such as this is quite comforting. It gives me a bit more peace of mind, to know that I’m doing what I can to protect myself and my loved ones from the virus (still waiting for that vaccine, though!).
Will I repurchase? Yes, I think I will. Even if the pandemic is over, it’s too good of a product not to have.
Any thoughts on this post? What do you do to protect yourself from pathogens? I would love to know. Share them in the comments section.
