American public benefit corporation Kickstarter has launched the UV Mask, the next generation reusable face mask, successfully on June 25 that crossed the $1 million mark, one more month to go. This is the most funded mask of Kickstarter, also the first antiviral and anti-pollution face mask with powerful UV-C air purification in the world.

“The records we’ve broken over the past few days demonstrate the importance of our mission – to develop next-generation masks and tools to ensure safety and security at this uncertain time,” said Boz Zou, Inventor of UV Mask.

Unlike conventional reusable face masks, UV mask is the first with ultra-high UV-C enhancement and it ensures dual way protection for both users and those around the user.

The key component of the UV mask is the real-time dual disinfection process, equipped with passive filtrationsimilar to N95 respirator masks, and a patent-pending Sterile-Vortex active protection.


The combination of disinfection and purification increases the efficiency level of UVMask to 99.99%, enough to remove any contaminants, bacteria, viruses, or allergens, 10x faster than you breathe. The air is sent through the vortex and purified under two 25,000μW/cm2 UV-C LEDs.

As the glass components reduce UV-C light transmission, the sterile-vertex of the UV mask uses the highest quality bluish crystal optics and high-precision chip production to receive each UV-C light.

“We have developed UVMask with the safety of our users in mind, therefore UVMask has been independently tested and certified by the FDA-approved and ISO 17025 accredited SGS Labs,” sums up Boz.

The UV-C active protection has been tested against E.coli and Staphylococcus to have an average efficacy rate of 99.93%.
