Simply put, an evolvetogether™ mask is one of the safest and most comfortable masks you can wear. Designed in NYC with cost, performance, and design in mind, evolvetogether™ masks are made in an FDA and CE certified factory by workers in full PPE utilizing technologies to ensure an entirely sterile, production-to-doorstep process.
Our medical grade, Type IIR face masks offer >98% bacterial filtration efficiency and >95% particle filtration efficiency using a 3-ply technology including a water-resistant non-woven outer layer, melt blown center, and an absorbent non-woven inner layer. These three layers work together to make a lightweight, breathable mask that is good for all day wear for even the most sensitive skin.
Our masks are Type IIR, meaning they meet the following criteria during rigorous testing:
- Extremely high BFE (bacteria filtration efficiency) of >98%, ensuring better protection from bacteria - Extremely high PFE (particle filtration efficiency) of >95% (0.3μm; NaCL; 32 l/min), ensuring better protection from particles - Excellent breathability measured by a Differential Pressure of <60 (Pa/cm2) (Airflow 8 l/min), ensuring the mask feels cooler and easier to breathe through, maintains its shape better, and has less unfiltered air escaping around the mask. - Superior microbial cleanliness of <30 CFU/g (CFU-Colony Forming Units), ensuring a cleaner mask.
Our masks are designed with three layers that all perform very specific functions — a water-resistant outer layer to block airborne contaminants, a melt-blown fabric center to filter bacteria and particles, and a moisture-absorbing interior. These layers work together to protect both yourself and others. Both 2-ply and cloth face coverings (usually made from polyester or cotton), just can’t measure up because they are not constructed the same way. They may block some expulsion of airborne contaminants but offer minimal protection against pollution, viruses or bacteria.
Yep! We are one of the only consumer masks that is FDA registered. Additionally, our masks are made in a FDA registered factory that has long specialized in PPE production. The workers wear full PPE within the factory and utilize technology to ensure a fully sterile process from the production line to your doorstep.
Bacterial Filtration Efficiency or BFE is a measurement of a respirator material's resistance to penetration of bacteria. Results are reported as percent efficiency and correlate with the ability of the fabric to resist bacterial penetration. Higher numbers in this test indicate better barrier efficiency.
evolvetogether™ masks have a BFE greater than 98%.
Particle Filtration Efficiency or PFE is a measurement of a respirator material's resistance to penetration of particles at sub-micron levels. Results are reported as percent efficiency and correlate with the ability of the fabric to resist particle penetration. Higher numbers in this test indicate better barrier efficiency.
evolvetogether™ masks have a PFE greater than 90% (0.3μm; NaCL; 32 l/min).
When shouldn’t you!? Our evolvetogether™ masks can be used daily to protect from bacteria, dust, pollen, smoke, debris and germs from seasonal cold and flu. Plus, our masks are super breathable and lightweight, making them easy to wear for long periods of time.
Step 1: Wash your hands before touching your mask. Step 2: Pull the mask straps around your ears with the evolvetogether™ logo facing outwards. Step 3: Stretch the mask across your face so it snugly covers your nose, mouth, and chin. Step 4: Pinch the upper edge of the mask so that it presses gently on the bridge of your nose. Step 5: Avoid touching your face or the mask once it’s on, and use the mask keeper to store your mask when you need to safely stash it between uses. Step 6: Dispose of the mask properly after its 8 hour use.
With proper care, a single evolvetogether™ mask can be used approximately 8 hours. To keep it clean during its daily use, use our mask keeper to stow your mask safely when not in use (no more stashing in dirty pockets and purses).
Those numbers on your mask? Those are global coordinates representing different parts of the world. It’s our subtle nod to the idea that we’re all connected regardless of gender, race, religion, or geographical location. And that when we wear masks, we’re doing our own small part to take care of each other.
Safety and sustainability are incredibly important to us, and we will always prioritize minimizing waste and impact wherever we can safely do so. All evolvetogether™ packaging and mask keepers are made from either recycled paper, cane sugar or vegetable-based materials that are 100% biodegradable and/or compostable. However, due to its high efficiency melt blown filter, the evolvetogether™ mask itself is not recyclable and should be disposed of responsibly in regular trash bins with the ear loops up and folded.
