    WONDERING HOW TO PROPERLY WEAR A UPF 50+ SUN PROTECTIVE FACE MASK TO OPTIMIZE FIT, COMFORT AND UV SUN COVERAGE?

    Every face shape is different! For our three-pleat masks, here are the steps to get the best mask fit and sun coverage for your glowing cheekbones and jawline:

    • First, tuck the unique pleats under your chin then secure mask behind your ears.
    • Gently adjust the nose wire and smooth fabric towards your ears.
    • Next, make adjustments to the elastic loops by gently sliding or pulling the silicone beads or adjust the knots.
    • Scrunch or widen the fabric gathers by your ears. This helps with fit as well as provides much needed UV ray sun coverage on your driver's side face.
    • For style points, you might like a little fabric tuck along your cheeks (see video)!

    Follow these steps to optimize the fit to your unique face shape and provide the best sun coverage to protect your glowing skin on your cheekbones and jawline.

    Video Tutorial ⬇️

    Hand wash before first use and after each subsequent use, and lay flat to dry. Refrain from touching the mask or your face once you have put it on.

    To extend product life, we recommend hand washing your fabric face mask with a gentle liquid soap.

    • Hang dry
    • No iron
    • No Bleach

    The CDC recommends fabric face masks be washed prior to first use, and each time after wearing.

    We're a slow fashion indie brand.

    We make in small quantities or make to order.

    And we're committed to building safe for you, environmentally friendly, sun protective products that are attractive, comfortable and useful.

    Hi, I'm Sharone, your designer.
    My commitment to you, my children and the world is to do my best to leave the world in a better place. Comfort and aesthetics is so important to me, and delivering products that will keep you and your skin healthy while doing good for the planet is my goal.
    What's in it for you?
    This is a clean product that’s safe for your body.
    Everything from the heat transfer tags, logos, thread and fabric is independently certified to be free of harmful chemicals and heavy metals including substances not yet regulated, and is rated safe for prolonged contact on skin.
    For all of us, and especially the immuno-compromised, this is important for your long term health.

    This means nothing nefarious absorbs into your skin (and therefore your bloodstream). Here's more info and the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 list of chemicals and heavy metals.

    How this helps you and the environment.
    Our OEKO-TEX certified partners utilize sustainable manufacturing practices to offset the global impact fashion has contributed to waste and pollution (especially our waterways).
    My partners set goals to reduce carbon, water and energy footprints by using renewable resources such as recycled water and solar energy with no dumping of chemicals into the waterways.

    I'm going to link to a reference chart of the PEF label(s) for the fabrics I use to make this product (Product Environmental Footprint) at the bottom of this page.

    Attractive, comfortable, useful designs that are beneficial to your health as well as the environment.
    Functionally, this permanently sun protective product blocks more than 98% of UVA and UVB rays from reaching your skin.
    When I’m designing I think about friends with skin sensitivities, folks who may be immuno-compromised, recovering from chemo, radiation treatments or biopsies, people using vanity as a motivation to stay healthy (100% no shame there). 
    I want to create designs that are aesthetically interesting and useful.
    I believe it's got to feel comfortable.
    Whenever possible I try to incorporate unsewn edges into my designs.
    These "raw edges" feel 'naked' against the skin - an important comfort feature for people with skin sensitivities.
    Raw edges have the added benefit of invisibility, too. They won't create lines when tucking into clothes or around your arms (our UV Sun Gauntlets - arm sleeves).

    Aesthetics do matter, because you’ve got to feel confident wearing your UPF clothing that’s oh so good for you. And our planet.

    In the end, it’s a big circle and we just want to do our small part to keep crap out of the global supply chain, reduce the carbon footprint and make interesting designs that are good for you and your skin's health.
    Thanks for reading!

          • Scrunch or widen the fabric gathers by your ears. This helps with fit as well as provides much needed UV ray sun coverage on your driver's side face.
          • For style points, you might like a little fabric tuck along your cheeks (see video)!

          Follow these steps to optimize the fit to your unique face shape and provide the best sun coverage to protect your glowing skin on your cheekbones and jawline.

          Hand wash before first use and after each subsequent use, and lay flat to dry. Refrain from touching the mask or your face once you have put it on.

          To extend product life, we recommend hand washing your fabric face mask with a gentle liquid soap.

          • Hang dry
          • No iron
          • No Bleach

          The CDC recommends fabric face masks be washed prior to first use, and each time after wearing.

          We're a slow fashion indie brand.

          We make in small quantities or make to order.

          And we're committed to building safe for you, environmentally friendly, sun protective products that are attractive, comfortable and useful.

          Hi, I'm Sharone, your designer.
          My commitment to you, my children and the world is to do my best to leave the world in a better place. Comfort and aesthetics is so important to me, and delivering products that will keep you and your skin healthy while doing good for the planet is my goal.
          What's in it for you?
          This is a clean product that’s safe for your body.
          Everything from the heat transfer tags, logos, thread and fabric is independently certified to be free of harmful chemicals and heavy metals including substances not yet regulated, and is rated safe for prolonged contact on skin.
          For all of us, and especially the immuno-compromised, this is important for your long term health.

          This means nothing nefarious absorbs into your skin (and therefore your bloodstream). Here's more info and the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 list of chemicals and heavy metals.

          How this helps you and the environment.
          Our OEKO-TEX certified partners utilize sustainable manufacturing practices to offset the global impact fashion has contributed to waste and pollution (especially our waterways).
          My partners set goals to reduce carbon, water and energy footprints by using renewable resources such as recycled water and solar energy with no dumping of chemicals into the waterways.

          I'm going to link to a reference chart of the PEF label(s) for the fabrics I use to make this product (Product Environmental Footprint) at the bottom of this page.

          Attractive, comfortable, useful designs that are beneficial to your health as well as the environment.
          Functionally, this permanently sun protective product blocks more than 98% of UVA and UVB rays from reaching your skin.
          When I’m designing I think about friends with skin sensitivities, folks who may be immuno-compromised, recovering from chemo, radiation treatments or biopsies, people using vanity as a motivation to stay healthy (100% no shame there). 
          I want to create designs that are aesthetically interesting and useful.
          I believe it's got to feel comfortable.
          Whenever possible I try to incorporate unsewn edges into my designs.
          These "raw edges" feel 'naked' against the skin - an important comfort feature for people with skin sensitivities.
          Raw edges have the added benefit of invisibility, too. They won't create lines when tucking into clothes or around your arms (our UV Sun Gauntlets - arm sleeves).

          Aesthetics do matter, because you’ve got to feel confident wearing your UPF clothing that’s oh so good for you. And our planet.

          In the end, it’s a big circle and we just want to do our small part to keep crap out of the global supply chain, reduce the carbon footprint and make interesting designs that are good for you and your skin's health.
          Thanks for reading!
