Reusable Face Masks
We all came across a heart-wrenching moment between a mum and her son that was shared by a doctor – ‘Mummy doesn’t blame you for bringing home Covid-19. Don’t blame yourself if I don’t end up waking up.’
It shows that the covid cases in Malaysia have been surging high, taking many lives, and besides staying at home, the government urges the public to double-masking as a way of protection.
Fits better on your face because some masks allow the escape and entering of air through the sides. So, double masking reduces the number of respiratory droplets that could go through them. They could filter up to 95% of the Covid-19 virus.
So, as a way of protecting our mother nature and ourselves, The Kind Helper thinks the masks listed below are your best friends every time you leave the house.
Curating niche collections in-house, Whitesoot has reusable and washable face masks apart from their lovely dresses. They are made with 3 layers of pure, 100% cotton material and adjustable elastic straps. Each collection here is tailored lovingly in small production runs, so be quick!
