During the Covid-19 outbreak, medical organizations strongly recommended that people avoid touching their faces in order not to spread germs. A very difficult task that puts us to the test. According to one professional organization, the average person touches his or her face 23 times an hour. It can be difficult to break this habit, but fortunately, there is a new type of face mask that can really help, while being a beautiful design accessory. The mask created by Blocc is a stylish face shield that makes the task much easier.
Ben Kim, co-founder of Blocc, came up with the idea to launch this project after reading a study from 2015 that shows that 44% of facial touching involves mucous membranes that can cause disease if germs spread in the area. More than ever, this innovative idea resonates with current events by combining public health and design.
