The science of silver coatings

  • Silver stops microbes from growing on the mask
  • Microbes survive on the outside of conventional masks - transferred by touch
  • Folia’s antimicrobial coating releases silver into microbe-laden water droplets
  • Silver antimicrobial preservative inhibits microbe colonization
  • How silver stops microbes from growing
  • Breaks down microbe machinery, inhibiting microbe colonization over time
  • Silver pokes holes in germs, their insides spill out
  • Silver also stops microbes from functioning and from replicating

Folia’s face mask is sold as a non-filtering mask under the non-surgical FDA Emergency Use Authorization. Our silver antimicrobial preservative is a low dose that limits microbial growth in order to keep the mask clean. It is not intended to offer antimicrobial or antiviral protection to the wearer, nor is it intended to reduce or prevent infection. Regulatory disclaimer details can be found here.
