MisfitMasks are made here in the UK. Although it would be a lot cheaper if were to manufacture our masks in other countries, we believe in supporting British jobs and the economy.
MisfitMasks are made of 3 individual layers.
The Corona/Covid19 virus can't move through the air by itself. Instead it "catches a ride" on droplets from a cough, sneeze - even your breathing. Even if you don't have symptons, the virus can be transmitted from person to person very easily. Unless you wear a mask.
Wearing a mask makes it much harder for those droplets to travel far enough to infect other people. In fact, according to Science News, wearing a mask can reduce virus particles by up to 80%. Another study, this time by the American Institute of Physics shows that an uncovered cough has its droplets travel an average distance of 8 feet whilst wearing a mask can reduce it to a mere 2.5 inches (6.4 centimeters).
Crucially though, it is now the law in a lot of countries to wear a mask in the shops, on public transport and even whilst merely walking down the street. Most airlines insist you wear a mask and won't let you fly unless you do. For a full list of countries that require you to wear masks - updated daily - click here.
For a really great understanding with lots of data on why masks are so beneficial to stopping the spread take a look at this.
MisfitMasks are not medical-grade Facemasks such as the type typically described as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). That means that buying a MisfitMask does not take away from the priority stock for medical and emergency personel. Our Facemasks may still provide a high-degree of protection from the spread of Corona/Covid19 thanks to their design of the highly technical 3D foam spacer material that prevents and disrupts the movement of airborne particles.
Our masks are specifically designed to solve the number one problem all other facemasks have - misting, steaming or fogging. Hundreds of hours were spent designing the physical structure of the mask and selecting the right combination of fabrics to greatly reduce your glasses clouding up. The results speak for themselves!
Yes. They can be washed and reused.
MISFITMASKS are fully washable and reusable. You can wash them up to 50 times. We always recommend a very light handwash with just a touch of detergent. Let the mask soak for a time if you can always air dry never tumble dry!
We accept Visa, Visa Debit, Credit Card, Paypal, Amazon and Shopify payments. Hopes and prayers are - whist appreciated - not accepted.
Our payments system is provided by some of the world's largest payment providers and is PCI-compliant, using HTTPS. So yes!
Unfortunately we are unable to accept any returns of MisfitMasks except where there is a manufacturing fault. As you can imagine, safety and hygiene is our top priority.
