Many of the cheap masks contain formaldehyde!
Evidence shows that some face masks which are on sale and being used by members of the general public are laced with toxic chemicals. Professor Michael Braungart, director at the Hamburg Environmental Institute, conducted tests on masks which had caused people to break out in rashes. 'What we are breathing through our mouth and nose is actually hazardous waste,' Professor Braungart said. These used masks were found to contain formaldehyde and other chemicals. Formaldehyde is the chemical which gives the 'clean' smell when a new pack of masks is opened. He also found aniline, a known carcinogen.
'We found formaldehyde and even aniline and noticed that unknown artificial fragrances were being applied to cover any unpleasant chemical smells from the mask,' he said. 'In the case of the blue-coloured surgical masks, we found cobalt – which can be used as a blue dye. 'All in all, we have a chemical cocktail in front of our nose and mouth that has never been tested for either toxicity or any long-term effects on health.' ~ published in Mail Online
