Mask Defender is completely alcohol-free!
It won't irritate or dry your skin - quite the opposite. Mask Defender's proven active ingredient soothes, hydrates, and is effective against bacteria, viruses, and fungus/mould.
It is gentle enough for the most sensitive of skin and will not worsen existing mask-caused irritation.
Mask Defender is completely safe - it won't harm you, in any way (or your children or your pets!).
Regarding your skin, Mask Defender's active ingredient is used in consumer products for over-the-counter treatment of acne.
'Maskne' is a very real thing, and YES, Mask Defender will help combat it!
When you wear a mask, it quickly collects dirt and oils, which creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria from your nose and mouth.
Unfortunately, many people then turn to acne-treating products that contain harsh chemicals. This can make matters worse. Wearing a face mask already leaves your face dry and irritated from extra heat and friction. Adding a harsh acne treatment only exacerbates the problem.
Mask Defender targets 'maskne'-causing bacteria (as well as the dirt and oils that attract them) to significantly reduce breakouts. Use Mask Defender before and after wearing your mask and throughout the day for maximum impact.
Mask Defender won't irritate or dry your skin; it is actually soothing, hydrating, and effective against bacteria, viruses, and fungus/mould. It also reduces inflammation.
Unscented: Purified Water, Stabilized Oxychloro Compound (OxyPure brand).
Mask Defender's active ingredient, Stabilized Oxychloro Compound (SOC, OxyPure brand), is effective against bacteria, viruses, and fungus/mould, which is why it’s used in many consumer products, including acne-targeting products. It is also approved for use in the treatment of drinking water, as well as being approved for the treatment of fruit, vegetables, meat, and seafood.
It leaves no residue and provides no opportunity for the development of bacterial resistance.
SOC is a broad-spectrum biocide (operating similarly to tea tree oil, oregano, and other herbal remedies, but more effectively) with strong oxidizing properties that give it a unique ability to eliminate bacteria, viruses, and fungus/mould - including any spores. It's also an effective deodorizer for the same reason.
It has been proven to be safe for contact with all skin types, even the most sensitive.
Mask Defender’s active ingredient is safe, non-toxic, leaves no residue, and is suitable for frequent use.
Mask Defender uses the same active ingredient that is used in over 50 US EPA registered products, a number of which have been recently approved for use against COVID-19.
Remember that the best form of protection from any virus, including COVID-19, is keeping your exposure limited, your viral load down, and your immunity up - please refer to Public Health Guidelines for up to date information regarding the Best Practices that you should follow to keep yourself and others safe.
The beauty of Mask Defender is that it can be used by anyone, anytime, anywhere. Spray it on both sides of your mask and wait until it’s dry.
For skincare and acne benefits, we recommend using Mask Defender right before and after each mask use and every few hours when wearing a mask for a prolonged period of time.
Use Mask Defender when you simply need a boost of cleansing and protection. Spritz before and after social gatherings, spritz after doing your shopping, and spritz after exercise to decrease your viral load and keep you safe.
Yes! Mask Defender is alcohol-free, hypoallergenic, pH neutral and is suitable for use on even the most sensitive skin. It is perfectly safe to use for children.
You should still continue to wash your masks using other methods, such as in the washing machine, whenever possible. Mask Defender helps to provide a portable option when cleaning your mask in a washing machine or other methods are not available.
Our unscented products may smell briefly of our active ingredient (see above). Mask Defender is sometimes described as smelling somewhat like sea water or a swimming pool (note that Mask Defender is not a chlorine product!). This smell is very faint and subsides almost immediately without lingering.
At Mask Defender, we (and all of our suppliers) go through rigorous assessments to ensure that all our products are cruelty-free.
Our product is also 100% vegan and made using sustainable ingredients.
