Use Only Once / Disposable mask

Use Only Once
Use Only Once

Disposable masks are discarded by users after use.It is inevitable that criminals will collect used masks,sterilize them in a substandard way,and sell them again.Once these masks are used again by people,they are very susceptible to infection.Some users use scissors cut out the used masks,but this process has the risk of infection and increases the step of use.We design disposable seal on mask.The seal will break after use.When the user uses the mask, there is a natural action of opening the mask,which naturally destroys the seal.Compared with traditional masks,there is no need for the user to have extra steps.
