Long Haul Spa launches PPE for long haul
Australian travel retail beauty specialist Long Haul Spa is now launching ‘Saving Face,’ a new range of personal protective equipment and products designed for international travel and work commutes.
The products are packed in a black vegan leather case from Louenhide - the Australian fashion accessories expert. The Long Haul Spa Saving Face mask is unisex and made of a light, soft silk. It has one layer of silk and two layers of breathable cotton voile, allowing airflow while reducing transmission of respiratory particles. It can be hand washed and left to hang.
Designed to cover the mouth and nose, in compliance with World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations, the gently curved silk-cotton mask rises up over the nose and swoops around the cheeks with lycra ear stays to give maximum cover and comfort.
“With the focus on wellbeing and wellness, our personal space has never been more precious - we are all hyper-sensitive to what’s going on outside the mask but we also need to think about what lies beneath,” said Long Haul Spa founder Christine Keeling, in the announcement of the new products. “An unfortunate side effect of mask wearing is acne breakout from the skin over-heating with pores getting congested and also at key friction points such as on the bridge of the nose and cheeks. So the choice of fabric was an essential start point for the Long Haul Spa face mask design. Silk has electro-static properties – binding aerosols to the threads rather than allowing them to pass through the mask, while the cotton voile glides smoothly across the skin, it’s naturally hypoallergenic and gentle on sensitive skin types and it’s so light and easy to wear, giving the wearer confidence at all levels. We are also actively developing new skincare solutions to counter the effects of mask-wearing.”
Complementing the mask is Long Haul Spa's Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel, which is 70 percent ethanol and kills 99.9 percent of germs. It is made in Australia with Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil and Aloe Vera.
Long Haul Spa Moisturizing Crème Balm is made from New Zealand and African Botanicals including Mafura Butter, Kalahari Melon Seed Oil, Rooibos and Kiwi Seed Extract – to soothe over-cleansed hands.
