During this time, of social distancing, and with almost all spas and salons that offer HydraFacial treatments closed, the HydraFacial Company, is shifting its focus to support small businesses who are on the frontlines of COVID-19.

The company is selling and distributing reusable, washable masks made of CuTec material for those working in healthcare, public safety, and emergency personnel environments. Although these masks are not N95, they are made with proprietary copper fiber known to have powerful antimicrobial properties, making them sufficient for those exposed, though it should be noted these masks have not been approved by the FDA.

Additionally, HydraFacial’s engineers and regulatory teams are working with a local company to build ventilators to help with the shortage throughout the U.S. They are also utilizing the extra space in their warehouse to help store and establish these devices.
