Copper Compression Restocks First-of-its-Kind Copper-Infused Face Mask

Copper Compression, a designer, manufacturer and provider of a wide range of copper-infused recovery wearables and self-care solutions, has announced the largest restocking of the brand’s copper-infused filtered face masks, after selling out within minutes of its online debut in mid-April 2020 and again twice thereafter during the few weeks following.

Copper Compression is now offering greater quantities of its anti-bacterial, reusable and washable copper ion-infused face mask to the public for sale on its website.

“Copper is broadly recognized for its natural ability to destroy bacteria and the mask’s dual filter is among the highest protection available today,” according to a press release.

A two-pack of the copper-infused masks will be available for $22 during the first week of June. Consumers are encouraged to register on the Brand’s web site to receive an email notification once the masks are restocked and available for purchase at The non-medical mask, embraced by doctors, nurses and emergency medical technicians, has also been favored among fitness, fashion and foodie elites.

The mask features a four-layer structure with a protective copper-infused cotton outer layer. Its middle layers include a high efficiency bacterial filter and supportive lining creating dual filters, which block greater than 95% of fine particulate matter, allowing it to collect particles down to 0.5 microns in size, over a five-year period. The interior of the mask is made with a soft 100% cotton-lining and provides extra space for ventilation and moisture absorption, making it extremely comfortable for extended wear. The copper protection infused within each fiber maintains its hygienic potency throughout the lifespan of the product and never washes out. Each mask comes with a certificate of conformity, ensuring its standards meet the consumer product and safety commission.

The restock comes on the heels of the company donating and delivering its initial complete inventory of 18,000 masks to frontline health care professionals across several leading and respected New York/New Jersey health systems in early April.

“As the country opens up and the demand for PPE continues to dramatically increase, Copper Compression is committed to keeping its masks in stock and available for purchase. Our team is making every effort to keep our site stocked with masks to help consumers navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19. We value the trust our customers continue to place in the Copper Compression brand,” explained Copper Compression Brand Director Joey Braha.

“Looking ahead, the face mask will be a staple within our new hygienic travel line, which will be introduced in the coming months through broader availability. Copper Compression is well-known throughout the country for its wide array of unisex copper-infused products, all of which are guaranteed to contain the highest copper content. We remain dedicated to developing and offering a full line of health and wellness products that truly make a difference in the lives of our customers,” noted Bobby Cohen, Copper Compression president.

Among Copper Compression’s top-rated products which have more relevance now than ever is its full-finger copper-infused glove, boasting all the same features as the mask, with the added benefit of targeted compression relief. The glove delivers enhanced protection for consumers striving to defend themselves against COVID-19 and resists bacteria on commonly touched surfaces, such as door handles, elevator buttons, credit card pin pads, gas pumps and much more.
