Black Face Mask
*Note; These are NOT Medical Grade. & come with white not black elastics as the digital mock up suggests.
Our Plain Black Face mask is 2 layers of fabric, with a pocket for a refillable filter & elastic bands to wrap around ears. See Photo. Nose tip has wire to adjust for better fit .
We will sell the filters also as soon as we can get our hands on them. The one you purchase will come with 1x filter PM2.5, & 1x spare.
So - to break it down, the Masks themselves are Cotton & not medical grade however the filter that we are providing with them is very helpful, it has 5 layers of filtration, see image provided: What is PM2.5?
These are tiny particles of atmospheric particulate matter (PM) that have a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers, which is about 3% the diameter of a human hair. Due to the fact that they are extremely tiny, for example bacteria, they do tend to stay longer in the air than heavier particles. This increases the chances of humans and animals inhaling them into the bodies. Unfortunately as they are so minute they are able to bypass the nose and throat and get deep into the lungs, some may even enter the circulatory system.
Studies have found a close link between exposure to fine particles likewise premature death from heart and lung disease may well result from breathing in PM2.5. These PM2.5 particles are also known to set off or make worse chronic disease such as asthma, heart attack, bronchitis and other respiratory issues.

Along with selling these I am donating 100 to nurses & midwives. The more we sell the more I will donate.
Please note. These don’t prevent you getting a virus, staying home on lockdown does that! I’m just trying to help! However they are a great reminder to not touch your face & to keep safe while you are are out,
If you want a medical grade mask, buy one. I never will claim they are medical grade, Please educate yourself on all the precautions to take to stay away from people at least 2 metres & wash your hands & sanitising regularly. For me personally wearing it over wearing nothing makes me feel better - that’s if I venture out.
