Integrated Solutions for the Covid-19 Situation


Nowadays, consumers wear face covers daily, as well-known research institutes such as the WHO recommend to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These face covers offer a line of protection during the pandemic but can subsequently lead to several skin issues with its frequent use. 


Especially the friction, pressure and rubbing of the face mask combined with the humidity beneath, creates perfect conditions for skin irritation resulting in blemishes and high sensitivity of the skin.
