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
High quality face covering made of waterproof medical grade fabric
middle layer containing the propolised filter and an inner additional
sheer muslin cloth layer to absorb the humidity inside the face covering
sheer muslin cotton
medical grade fabric
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.
Designed and developed by a Hampstead local fashion designer who is the inventor of Api-textiles and holds a Diploma in Microbiology
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

one outfit - endless ways to wear !
"The Convertible Collection is a revolutionary fashion concept that offers women freedom, comfort and confidence. It covers all fashion needs as one outfit can be transformed from daywear to evening wear, casual to business attire to classic elegance.
Indeed, two models (including a twelve-year-old girl) first appeared in a Renaissance-like garment. The model suddenly stopped and unlaced a part of her top, making of it a skirt or a dress. One outfit was declined in three versions thanks to double-faced pieces of clothing. As a result, the new outfit had another style and allure. It was incredibly ingenious and smartly organised with a nice mise-en-scene. In the heart of the sustainable issue ,Convertible Fashion proved fashion can adapt itself to any challenge."
