And right now, you can find mask packs for up to 60 percent off, with single masks starting at $20.
Copper has always been thought to have major health advantages, and it's even been recognized as the first antimicrobial metallic surface approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The company states that the copper woven into its nylon mask is used to help cut down on unpleasant odors that may develop over prolonged use.
These adjustable masks work like any other reusable face mask to prevent bacteria, dust, and other liquid droplets from entering your respiratory tract.
