NovaBay Pharmaceuticals announced the availability of KN95 disposable air filter masks on the company’s website Avenova.com. The masks are being sold at a price of $59.99 for a package containing 10 masks, or $149.99 for a package containing 30 masks. KN95-rated masks are effective at filtering out at least 95% of airborne particles, including microorganisms, dust, pollen and air pollution.
“In light of the shortage of protective masks, we have tapped into our global health supplier network to procure and make available a high-quality, KN95-rated product at the most reasonable price possible,” Justin Hall, NovaBay CEO said in a company news release. “We received our first shipment of KN95 masks last week, which sold out online very quickly, and expect a second large inventory of masks to be available for shipment today. To meet the immediate need, we had the masks flown in on a rush basis. We have direct access to a large supplier of KN95 masks and encourage organizations ordering quantities of 50,000 or more to contact us directly at 1-800-890-0329 for special pricing.”
The NK95 disposable masks are constructed with a three-layer filtration system of nonwoven soft and breathable fiber for effective protection. The masks feature soft and comfortable elastic ear loops that will not apply pressure to the ears during use and have an adjustable nose bridge strip. The masks come in a single size that fits most faces. They are non-toxic, odorless, non-irritating, contain no dyes and are hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin. The disposable masks should be replaced daily for best hygiene and are ideal for one-time use in a non-medical setting.
“We plan to continue providing KN95 masks on Avenova.com for as long as the demand remains,” Mr. Hall added. “In these most unusual of circumstances, it’s gratifying for the NovaBay team to carry out our commitment to marshal all of our talents and resources to benefit the health and wellbeing of people everywhere. We will continue to be here to help accomplish this objective during and after this crisis is over.”
The KN95 air filter masks are manufactured by Earntz Nonwoven Co. and are CE certified for FFP2 protective mask (EN 149-2001) and meet KN95-level requirements (GB 2626-2006).
