HOW DOES IT WORK ?

This face cover offers protection in three ways: 
#Inhalation of Propolis particles from the propolised filter 
of the mask inhibits  intracellular replication of the virus 
This process stop the virus cells reproduction and infection

# It prevents the virus from entering the human host cell  - when Propolis gets directly in contact with the virus

# It stimulates the immune system to combat the infection

--FREE  NEXT DAY UK MAINLAND DELIVERY INCLUDED

Velcro dot to indicate the side that it was worn the previous time

preventing you from accidental contact with a contaminated surface

by positioning the rough side of the velcro on the outside part of the covering

Everybody is unique and no face shape is the same therefore we created our face covering in different sizes and lengths, for example, if your face shape is small and oval/round/heart shape 

a small/medium size is recommended.

What is Propolis?

Propolis is a complex mixture made by bee-released and plant-derived compounds. In general, raw propolis is composed of around 50% resins, 30% waxes, 10% essential oils, 5% pollen, and 5% of various organic compounds

Propolis and its extracts have numerous applications in treating various diseases due to its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antimitotic, antifungal, antiulcer, anticancer, and immunomodulatory properties

It was utilised by ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations for everything from fighting infections to treating abscesses.

Its literal Greek translation is ‘in front of the city’ – the bees recognised that and they used to protect bee colonies from the elements.

How it works ?   The science behind the mask

The face cover consists into three layers, one of its being a propolised filter.

Propolis is a substance made by the bees from tree and plant resins collected by bees and mixed with their enzymes .

Propolis word comes from the Greek language and it means: " Defender of the city,"

The bees use Propolis to kill and protect their hives from any pathogens by coating their hives with this substance resulting in a sterile environment thanks to its antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.

With this model in mind, the proposed filter face covering was designed to protect you as bees protect their hive.

The second way how the propolis filter protects you is by inhalation of Propolis particles.

SARS-CoV2 human to human transition occurs through contact with mucous membranes of the month, nose and eyes, considering the mode of transmission and pathogenesis,Propolis inhalation is an effective way to prevent viral activity because

it affects directly the sites of viral accumulation: respiratory system.Once a virion ( a single virus cell) gets attached to the human host cell in the mucus,it will replicate and reproduce itself occurring into an infection.

If propolis particles are present, the highly active flavonoids like Chrysine and Kaempfoul will inhibit the replication :

reducing intracellular replication activity contributes to suppress the growth of the virus.

This process stops some specific enzymes disabling virus capacity to synthesise their RNA or DNA

The third-way Propolis has antiviral properties is by being an immune system booster,

Propolis contains Bioflavonoids and Poliphenoids that support the immune system to reduce oxidative stress
