Graphene face masks

Health Canada has authorized the sale of an additional face mask containing graphene: the Zen Guard Disposable Face Mask With Biocidal Coating, by Trebor Rx Corp. Please see the updated table below. Aside from the products listed in the table, no other graphene face masks are currently permitted for sale in Canada.To get more news about famous type I mask factory, you can visit official website.

Companies wishing to sell graphene masks must first provide evidence to Health Canada demonstrating the safety and effectiveness of their models, as the risks with using graphene masks may vary depending on mask design. Health Canada continues to encourage Canadians to submit a complaint if they find graphene masks being sold in Canada other than the ones listed in the table below.

Health Canada will continue to update the permitted products table below if it authorizes any other face masks containing graphene. Consumers are encouraged to check back for updates.Health Canada previously advised Canadians not to use face masks that contain graphene after a preliminary assessment identified some potential for inhaled graphene particles to cause early lung effects in animals (e.g., early signs of inflammation). As a precaution while a risk assessment was ongoing, Health Canada directed all known importers and distributors of these masks to remove four mask models from one manufacturer, Shandong Shengquan New Materials Co. Ltd., from the market.

Health Canada has reviewed the available scientific literature along with data provided by Shandong Shengquan New Materials Co. Ltd., related to the biomass graphene contained within its four models. The review found that biomass graphene particles are not shed from these masks in quantities that are likely to cause adverse lung effects.

Health Canada also determined that the filtration performance of these masks meets the performance standard listed on the label. The Department did not find evidence that biomass graphene provides any added antimicrobial, or antiviral protection.

As a result, given the evidence supporting the safety and effectiveness of these products, Health Canada is permitting the sale of the four Shandong Shengquan New Materials Co. Ltd. mask models to resume in Canada (see models listed below).

No other graphene face masks are currently permitted for sale in Canada. Consumers should notify Health Canada by submitting an online complaint form should they become aware of other graphene masks being sold in Canada.
