We understand that our prices are higher than similar masks during normal times. Many cheaper 3-ply disposable face masks are currently backordered for months, provide ineffective protection, or are downright fake. Our number one priority is to deliver safe and effective face masks and PPE. Production costs are high from increased raw materials pricing, increased shipping costs, and the costs of building brand new manufacturing equipment and facilities. As our costs decrease, we will continue to decrease our prices.
