“A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.” – William Arthur Ward
We should never underestimate the power of a smile, especially during these challenging times. The world is currently filled with fear and uncertainties and sharing a random smile could easily make a person’s day. At the same time, however, we need to wear face masks to protect ourselves from the threat of the pandemic – and that has made smiling practically obsolete. To combat this “issue”, Steve Tsao and his wife created the transparent Jelli M1 face masks.
When the couple realized that there weren’t a lot of decent options for transparent, anti-fog, breathable, and safe masks in the market, they worked with their kids to come up with an initial design and collaborated with talents all over the world to come up with the Jelli M1 masks.
“Being an innovative product, the Jelli M1 transparent mask can seem unusual at first but we’re breaking the norm to let the world see your smiles again. Wearing a transparent mask brings back a sense of normalcy with being able to see faces again after over a year of this pandemic. Today, we’ve shipped thousands of masks all over the world and are racing to meet the demands!” – Founder Steve Tsao
According to Steve, there were many iterations and prototypes before finalizing this product. The main considerations were breathability, safety, comfort, and style. To achieve this, engineers from California came up with the Jelli M1 for all-day comfort. It has also been tested by third-party labs (Intertek) to have a particle filtration efficiency of over 97% – even higher than the 95% standard of an N95 mask!
Furthermore, these masks provide more security and protection than other masks in the market. They have an adjustable fit that minimizes air gaps and two-way filtration to protect yourself and others. The masks are completely reusable and come with replaceable filters, too!
The filtration material used in these face masks is in the same family of materials used for surgical and N95 masks, while the parts that touch your skin are made with food-grade polycarbonate. (This is the same material used for food preparation – that’s how safe it is!)
These anti-fog and transparent face masks will also help you communicate with people better and showcase your beautiful smile! They also allow you to be more inclusive of the hard-of-hearing community, who rely on lip-reading and have been greatly affected by the wearing of face masks.
Other perks of these masks include unlocking your phone with Face ID with ease, showing off your lipstick, and elevating your OOTDs. 😉
The Jelli M1 is loved by several doctors (even Doc Adam has given it his seal of approval!) and has already been spotted on celebrities such as Billy Crawford, Alex Gonzaga, Gelli de Belen Rivera, Sam YG, and more!
