The world was a much different place from when we first started our journey in 2018, but our mission remains concrete: build the world's best face mask for kids, period.
Living in California, we're subjected to annual wildfires that rapidly degrade our air quality with harmful particulates, lasting weeks at a time. As a dad to three young kids, two in elementary school, I grew increasingly desperate to find a solution.
But as a product development professional, it was clear to me the mask industry forgot about kids when they created N95 masks. This mission suddenly became deeply personal and that's when the idea for Flo Mask was born. We were on our way to creating an air pollution mask, then COVID-19 hit and we had to rethink everything. We needed Flo Mask to protect against both.
The Flo Mask team is made up of award winning product designers that who dedicated our lives to creating real world solutions focused on the user experience. We have expertise in developing products around human factors and Flo Mask proved to be one of the most challenging we've ever done.
Our two year journey to scan little faces using an industrial grade 3D scanner, design, prototype, learn, scrap, start over, redesign, refine, prototype again and again is what's required to build what we believe to be the world's best face mask for kids.
Flo Mask is crafted with the very best materials and tested to the highest standards. We've obsessed over every detail as if our own kids are wearing them, because they are.
And now, we'd like to share Flo Mask with the world.
