1Does my Snap Mask Sports face mask slow the spread of a virus, like COVID-19?
YES. Because the face mask material is layered, with two layers of fabric fused together with an interior layer of filter, it can prevent the spread of droplets from the mouth and nose.
2Is my Snap Mask Sports face mask sustainable?
All three layers that comprise a SMS face mask are completely reusable and recyclable. The elastic straps that keep a SMS face mask secure to the head are made with natural cotton and eco-friendly rubber. SMS does use KAM brand plastic snaps, which are considered the “gold-standard” of plastic snaps. KAM brand plastic snaps are made of polyoxymethylene (POM), a high-density plastic that is stronger and more durable than other types of plastic. These snaps are BPA-free and have been tested for lead and phthalate content to comply with CPSIA regulations for children's products.
3Is my Snap Mask Sports face mask safe?
Yes. SMS face masks are safe to wear during athletic and non-athletic events, and when combined with other preventive measures such as frequent hand-washing and social distancing, help slow the spread of viruses. They are non-toxic, reusable, and washable. Proper washing before reuse is always recommended.
4Does my Snap Mask Sports face mask meet and adhere to NFHS and USA Cheer guidelines?
Yes. SMS face masks are the only masks that meet all NFHS and USA Cheer guidelines for face masks. SMS face masks are snug fitting, do not impede vision or movement, are soft and pliable with no exposed metal, and provide adequate ventilation and protection from the spread of particulate matter. SMS face masks are held in place with over-the-head straps and use a PATENT PENDING breakaway type connection.
5Is my Snap Mask Sports face mask washable?
Yes. Care for your SMS face mask as you would any custom crafted delicate object. Hand wash in a solution of diluted dish soap and water. Submerge the entire mask, wash, and gently squeeze out the excess water. Rinse until clear. Gently squeeze excess water and lay flat to dry.
6Why use a Snap Mask Sports face mask when participating in athletics?
SMS face masks are crafted with breathable neoprene fabric. Neoprene is an activewear fabric. Unlike cotton which can become damp quickly and can promote bacterial growth, neoprene wicks away moisture and dries rapidly, maintaining breathability and comfort while you move.
7Is my Snap Mask Sports face mask custom fitted?
Yes. Every custom handmade SMS face mask is built to the measurements and specifications of the individual. Custom fitting masks allow for the best fit, most comfortability, and proper securing to the head.
