We use pure cotton gauze for the inner material of our eco-mask.
Do you know how to choose the right inner gauze?
There are 2 types of gauze:
1. Single layer - this is thin and lighter to wear in very hot places
2. Double layer - this has 2 layers of cotton, which is more protective
Here you can see the thickness comparison of Single and Double gauze:
For double layer gauze, we have "standard double" and "Cool Touch double".
So what is "Touch Cool"?
The official name of this fabric is "コンフォートクール冷感Wガーゼ" (Comfort Cool (R)) and is made in Japan.
What is “Cool touch” treatment?
This fabric is made with 2 special treatments:
- The fiber is treated to make you feel cooler when you the fabric
- When your skin is in close contact with the fabric, your sweat and moist will trigger a chemical reaction with the processed fiber. It absorbs both heat and vapour, which lower the temperate and make it more comfortable to wear.
