Supremely soft, lightweight and designed to be worn whilst practicing social distancing measures, Blackpop's double silk masks are made for domestic and not medical grade usage.
They come with a pocket to allow for the inclusion of additional filters if you wish and are hand washable in cool soapy water [current research advise is that cloth masks should be washed after each use].
There are numerous positive advantages to using reusable face masks...
Surgical grade respirators offer the highest grade protection but they are difficult to come by, uncomfortable to wear and contribute to landfill, also they are in short supply so ideally they should be reserved for high risk health workers.
The evidence on the protective value of reusable cloth coverings is less clear, but still suggests that face masks can contribute to reducing transmission of Covid-19 when worn alongside practicing social distancing measures and regular hand washing in luke warm water with a small amount of detergent.
