Three Layer O Canada Mask?

Available now, Polypropylene Non-Woven Filters, sized to fit inside O Canada Masks.  Add this fitted Polypropylene Filter inside the mask's filter pocket to achieve a three layer mask.  Sold as pack of 10 filters.  

Available in three sizes, Adult Cup, Surgical, Small Adult/Kids Cup.

Public Health Agency of Canada is now recommending Canadians choose three-layer non-medical masks with a filter layer to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Fortunately, we anticipated the possible need for additional protection when we designed an integrated filter pocket into our original two layer masks.  When used together our two cotton layer O Canada Masks + the filter layer will achieve the total 3 layer mask structure to satisfy the latest Public Health Canada recommendation. 

As Canada's top doctor suggests, let not waste our existing masks:  "Tam stressed that Canadians currently using two-layered masks do not need to throw them in the trash, but should instead purchase a disposable filter to insert between the layers. "  Existing OCanadaMasks customers can keep using their favorite masks and add the filter layer to achieve a 3 layer mask.

Mask fit is also a very important factor in mask effectiveness according to Infectious disease specialist Dr. Brian Conway. "He stressed a two-layer mask is still effective if it fits as closely as possible against the face."  We have many customers commenting on how they love the fit of OCanadaMasks.  Many are repeat customers like yourself.

It is important for customers to have a choice in how they use their masks.  A 3 layer mask may offer more protection in certain situations but will be less breathable.  A 2 layer mask is more breathable and can still offer satisfactory protection.  Additional protection can be added in the filter pocket when necessary.  

These Polypropylene Non-Woven Filters are washable and re-useable.  Sold as pack of 10 filters.

Cotton vs Polypropylene?

Our Non-Medical reusable fabric face masks are made using 100% cotton fabrics. We have chosen to use cotton over polypropylene as it is more comfortable, breathable and usable. Polypropylene can makes for a good masks due to the fabric's properties but is uncomfortable against the skin during prolonged use.  Two layers of 100% cotton fabric for comfort plus our filter pocket feature gives O Canada Masks the best of both worlds.  

Public Health Canada recently recommended use of a 3 layer mask.  Fortunately, OCanadaMasks' integrated filter pocket anticipated the need for more protection and future proofed our masks.  We have available a polypropylene third layer filter designed to fit inside the integrated filter pocket of our two cotton layer masks.  When used together our two layer O Canada Masks + the filter layer will achieve the total 3 layer mask structure to satisfy the latest Public Health Canada recommendation.  

As Canada's top doctor suggests, let not waste our existing masks:  "Tam stressed that Canadians currently using two-layered masks do not need to throw them in the trash, but should instead purchase a disposable filter to insert between the layers. "   Existing OCanadaMasks customers can keep using their favorite OCanadaMasks and add the 3rd filter layer to achieve a 3 layer mask if they choose to do so. 

Where are these Reusable Face Masks made?

Our masks are designed and manufactured in Toronto, Canada.  Major input materials are sourced from Canadian fabric suppliers whenever possible.  We have been manufacturing apparel in Canada for over 25 years.

How do I wash my Reusable Face Mask?

Our fabric Face Masks are washer and dryer friendly. 

** Note, a few customers washed their mask with hand/body soap which resulted in some "bleeding" of the Red flag color into the white.  Turns out that hand soap or body soap or other scented soaps can have oils and these oils can cause breakdown of fabric dye resulting in the color bleed.   Hand/body soap often add essential oils to give the soap a pleasant fragrance which is good for selling soap.  Nice for hands + body, not good for washing fabrics.  Please wash your masks in normal laundry detergent and preferably cold or warm water to keep your Canadian Masks looking great!
