DAWODY, The worlds smartest face mask?
Dawody smart mask is a high quality reusable face mask designed for the general public in introduced April 2020. While the world was in a global mask shortage, our aim was to integrate technology in masks to extend the durability and reuse of community masks, resulting in our First generation mask.The mask has hydrophobic technology integrated that repells liquids and droplets. In addition the Dawody smart mask has the smartest antimicrobial technology integrated that ONLY releases its antimicrobial components when moisture is on the garment of the mask. Providing long lasting antimicrobial efficacy with unique smart release technology that has proven effectiveness against microbes (bacteria and viruses) up to 99.99% .

Bleusign approved antimicrobial technology
The antimicrobial technology applied in the mask is Bluesign® approved. The bluesign system is the solution for a sustainable textile production. It eliminates harmful substances right from the beginning of the manufacturing process and sets and controls standards for an environmentally friendly and safe production. 

How is it washable when it is hydrophobic
The mask is adopted to repell small and medium size droplets. When large amounts of moisture or liquids are poured on the mask or the mask is dipped in water for more than 20 seconds, infiltration of liquids of the hydrophobic layer is possible. After washing the DAWODY mask dry it normally. Our hydrophobic effect stays untill a few washing turns, the antimicrobial layers untill 30. Improvement on the hydrophobic durability are in progress.To extend the hydrophobic effect, wash the mask gentle inside out and dip it into the water. Kindly only handwash the mask to enjoy the most durable effect of the mask. Excessieve long washing, bleaching, can reduce the durability of the hydrophobic layer. Tumble dry or machine wash, bleaching or ironing the first layer can damage the mask or reduce its integrated technology. 

What is the integrated technology based on?
The mask has a thin layer hydrophobic technology integrated that is liquid repellent (from sneezing, coughing) on the outher layer of the mask. 

In addition 2 layers are integrated with patented antimicrobial technology that is designed to automatically release its antimicrobial components when the mask comes in contact with moisture.

Leveraging copper and silver the antimicrobial technology, the smartest antimicrobial on the market in integrated in Dawody masks. Utilizing a zeolite carrier to provide its active ingredients such as ionic silver which fights micrbobes by preventing respiration, inhibiting cell division and disrupting cell metabolism.

How long can I last with one pack?
Each pack contains one mask. It is a reusable, eco-friendly and skin-friendly product that can be used up to 30 washing turns with antimicrobial efficacy. The hydrophobic durability depends on how excatly the masks are washed.

What is the benefit of this mask compared with disposable masks?
The Dawody mask has integrated antimicriobial technology, it is reusable and offers 24/7 protection against microbes. In addition the mask blocks harmfull UV rays and is breathable. Especially in the the summer season, Dawody smart mask is comfortable in its use. The mask is sustainable and reduces the waste of disposable masks with minimum impact on the environment.

Is this smart mask suitable to use in medical facilities?
DAWODY smart mask is designed for the general public. We do not encourage the use or reuse of our mask in facilities where international standard protocol is do dispose them after use.Out masks are not intented for medical use

When do I have to wash the mask?
For the general public we advice to wash it daily direct after use.

How do I wash the mask?
Handwash with soap. Do not bleach. Do not dry clean. Do not tumble dry. Line dry.

Soap and warm water are the first line of defence to remove the viruses  from surfaces. Soap interferes with the fats in the virus shell and lift the virus from surfaces and this is then rinsed off by water. Ofcourse, you also need to wash your hands with soap and water after washing the mask.

The best antimicrobial Technology
Only the best antimicriobial technology is suitable for the Dawody mask. We found the smartest antimicrobial on the market, with up to 99.9% efficiency and durability. In addition the antimicrobial effeciency against bacteria and viruses is tested and published.This made it the perfect antimicrobial solution for the Dawody The Worlds Smartest reusable mask.

For distributors have lab results of the antimicrobial efficacy including whitepaper of the integrated technology that outlines the following:

- Test data against SARS coronavirus

- Test data against coronavirus 229E

- Test data against h5n1 influenza
