WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - March 28, 2022 - (

Protect yourself with ELoMed's bio face masks, a sustainable PPE option suitable for healthcare and capable of protecting against different COVID variants. Made of renewable resources, these sustainable face masks were created to provide a thoughtful alternative to more traditional masks, products ELoMed claims have contributed to rampant pollution.  

Providing a solution to the consequences of traditional PPE usage during the pandemic is a core mission for ELoMed, and through their new line of sustainable face masks, they hope to support personal health in an environmentally friendly way. ELoMed masks feature three layers and are made from renewable plant resources such as corn, sugarcane, cassava, and sugar beet. Each individual face mask is made using a unique biobased nonwoven fabric that breaks down over time, providing soil conditioners via decomposition. 

To demonstrate the product's power and effectiveness, a recently conducted study on Aerosol Filtration Efficiency of Common Fabrics Used in Respiratory Face Masks, unearthed some surprising results. The study found that multi-layered masks with an N95 classification were effectively superior when compared with other cloth and homemade masks. Research from the study indicates that cotton quilt is the most effective filtration material at a BFE of 80% for particles smaller than 300nm, and 90% for particles greater than 300nm. The value of these results is particularly illuminating when considering EloMed's biodegradable alternative is measured much higher, yielding a >98% lab tested BFE.

Much of this effectiveness comes from the layering process. According to the study, two and three-layer masks are vastly superior to one-layer masks, but the specific materials must be engineered accordingly. Many indications seem to suggest that inner layers and outer layers should be composed of different materials to better maximize the mask's effectiveness.

With ELoMed's biodegradable face masks, individuals can receive some of the best lab tested protection, while simultaneously supporting a better environment. An ELoMed face mask allows individuals to reduce waste while still adhering to Covid safety policies, and that goes a long way in the fight for a more sustainable future.

Readers interested in ELoMed's biodegradable, three-layer face masks are advised to contact the company directly for any questions, comments, or inquiries.
