With face masks becoming a part of our everyday lives, the task of choosing the right one can be daunting. You want safety, ease of wear and the peace of mind that your choice provides the best protection for you and those around you. This is where a face mask that leverages Nano-Silver Technology comes into play — but why are they so effective?
This article will explain Nano-Silver Technology, the multiple benefits that these masks provide, and the success they have yielded for users in S. Vietnam.
What is Nano-Silver?
For more than a century, silver has been used to treat many medical conditions because of its natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. And through the science of nanotechnology, nano-silver is created by reducing silver to nano-sized particles (approximately 1 billionth of a meter). Although silver naturally kills bacteria by stopping the exchange of oxygen, nanotechnology increases that capability. Given the growing consumer need for antimicrobial and antibacterial protection, nano-silver offers great promise in this arena.
Because of its excellent antimicrobial properties, nano-silver has been used in numerous products, such as clothing, linens, baby bottles and cosmetics, as well as medical applications like bandages, catheters, and even hospital door handles.
Benefits of Face Masks Made With Nano-Silver
In recent years, Nano-Silver Technology has begun to be incorporated into protective face masks that can be worn everyday, including those made by us here at Boomer Naturals. Here, we explore a few of the benefits of wearing a nano-silver face mask.
In addition to the benefits of nano-silver outlined above, nano-silver particles release ions that slow down the growth of bacteria and fungi. As a result, nano-silver kills viruses and bacteria, a vital attribute for face masks.
According to testing conducted by Hong Kong Polytechnic University, “the bacteria content of [nano-silver masks] is lower than that of a standard mask.” In these tests, the masks were proven to be effective and safe to use for eight hours a day, for nearly seven days.
Success of Nano-Silver Masks in S. Vietnam
While demand for face masks continues to escalate around the world, Vietnamese manufacturers have been pioneers in the production and deployment of nano-silver face masks. The features of their masks are the key to the protection they provide and the low rate of COVID-19 infection in the country, and are why Boomer Naturals sources all face masks from Vietnamese factories.
Key Features of Vietnamese Face Masks
According to a report compiled by ABC, “Protection provided by cloth masks may be improved by selecting appropriate material, increasing the number of mask layers.” The face masks we produce in Vietnam are made up of three layers, each of which are infused with nano-silver and other antimicrobial properties,, consistent with the data that design can significantly improve protection.
In addition, these face masks are water-resistant. Because they absorb water and droplets from the wearer, the masks stay dry longer, allowing them to be worn for more hours.
Lastly, the nano-silver masks have a modified shape that is “optimized for better comfort during extended use.” As a result, the user is more likely to wear them longer.
Simplify Your Choice: Boomer is Best Source for Nano-Silver Face Masks
Boomer Naturals Nano-Silver Face Masks are tested and approved by the birthplace of the nano-silver face mask — the Vietnam Textile Research Institute and Textile Testing Center. Their construction is consistent with the World Health Organization (WHO) guidance on the attributes of cloth masks. The WHO recommends masks consist of at least “three layers of different materials”: an absorbent inner layer (such as cotton), nonwoven materials for the middle layer (such as polyprene, like you might see in a filter) and an outer layer that is made from a material that is not absorbent, such as polyester.
Boomer face masks are very comfortable because they are lightweight and made of soft materials. The nano-silver also provides additional antimicrobial protection so users can easily wear them for 30 days. Leveraging the technology that has been so successful for Vietnam, Boomer Naturals is the trusted source for Nano-Silver Face Masks.
