Many people can certainly agree that we are currently living in very uncertain times. As the world is struggling with the coronavirus pandemic, many are facing both economic and emotional difficulties. The last thing someone wants to worry about is whether or not they can acquire proper personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect themselves and their families with. Just a few months ago, masks, along with hand sanitizer and even toilet paper, were almost impossible to find. Fast-forward to today, masks are a staple in almost every store and even supermarket. However, a closer look at the masks will show that almost all of the masks are made in China, where proper sanitary laws and manufacture regulations are lacking, to say the least.
Many will agree that the best PPE should be provided to both healthcare workers fighting the virus at the forefront of this pandemic as well as the general public. Fortunately, many governments are focusing on the safety of medical personnel and staff. However, for the general public, there are few PPE products out there other than masks. This led the owners of BOHO Shield to create a company dedicated to the research and development of suitable equipment and products for viral and bacterial protection for the general public.
BOHO Shield is a JTP Partners company that is headquartered in New York and works with many manufacturers and suppliers to develop innovative protective equipment. The BOHO Shield team spends countless hours devoted to practical research and design in order to provide high quality, innovative products. By utilizing the power of zinc and copper, two elements well known for their anti-microbial properties, products were developed that significantly inhibited bacterial growth rate within a 24-hour period.
The full list of products provided by BOHO Shield can be seen on the BOHO Shield website, but include face masks, face shields, gloves, hoodies, masks pouches, films, adhesives, bags, and even phone protectors – all of which are anti-microbial and most are reusable and washable. Because the zinc and copper are infused into most of the products, there is no worry about it wearing off. All products are made with care in Korea in clean, state of the art facilities and have been tested and certified to be effective in killing bacteria and viruses. Individual testing reports and certifications for products can be viewed on BOHO Shield’s webpage.
