Made from copper and alloys like brass and bronze, these colorful and stylish masks are breathable and comfortable on the skin and face, and contain antibacterial properties to protect wearers from developing while staying active.
Over a year and a half has passed since the pandemic started, and Filipinos have been inseparable with face masks since then. Indeed a health necessity of the highest, most urgent kind, face masks have become a part of our daily essentials.
But the importance of wearing face masks also comes with the encouragement to maintain an active lifestyle during the pandemic, as it is necessary to boost immunity. However, for many, if not most people, wearing face masks while carrying out daily exercise still proves to be a burden.
Many gym-goers, sports enthusiasts, and fitness buffs who have carried out their routine in the pandemic claim that wearing masks during exercise is a struggle. The common complaint is that covers readily available are not comfortable to use, aren’t breathable enough for strenuous or rapid activity, and are not suitable for people who work out.
Thankfully, a breakthrough product from Philusa Corporation’s Mediplast has entered the market, introducing a new mask that addresses the struggle of pandemic-era individuals who want to stay active while staying protected.

Available in three sizes, the copper mask is a versatile cover that fits perfectly to any face shape and size. With its custom fit and ensured breathability, one can comfortably work out while being protected.

Mask acne or “maskne” is also a cause for concern from individuals who profusely sweat inside their masks. Aside from its washability, this mask is highly protective against bacteria, with its 99.9 percent antibacterial property, as well as antifungal and antiviral properties ensured by its copper and alloy material, backed up by quality test results from reputable and authorized testing centers.
