I used to think all masks were created equal but I have been proven so wrong! I had to attend a medical appt today, turned up in my new Acala mask and was asked to replace it with their own surgical mask…

If you’ve been suffering from acne due to wearing cheap masks with poor breathability, we have good news for you.
The inner filling of our masks have an antibacterial activity (antibiosis) of greater than 99%*. In simple terms, the anti-bacterial properties of the lotus microfibre means it not only prevents bacteria from forming, it actually kills it within 24 hours. This is big news for our face masks, and for your skin.
We recently re-invested thousands in clinical testing of our own face masks to curate the perfect mask for the Australian summer. Acala Stem mask’s inner layer of lotus microfibre has been clinically tested at world renown Nelson Laboratories in the USA for their Breathability (Differential Pressure, or Delta P) and Particle Filtration Efficiency (PFE).
The ultra-thin, breathable layer of lotus microfibre between the organic cotton is trapping an extra 63% of microns at 0.3 in size. With the breathability result of 0.54, that’s 8-10 times more breathable than the plastic disposable variety. See more findings in summary below:
• Breathability (pressure differential) of 0.54 (mm H2O/cm2) i.e. 8 - 10 times better than medical-grade face masks #.
• The ability to filtrate nearly two-thirds of sub-micron particles ^.
Our Raw Lotus Microfibre traditional unisex face covering is designed with 3 breathable layers and adjustable straps. The outer layer is a soft organic cotton and the middle layer panel contains lotus microfibre. The fibres are soft, silky, light-weight, ultra-breathable and super absorbent.
We are a 100% Australian-owned, female-lead team. We have a strong partnership with a textile social enterprise in Cambodia, empowering women to work from home with their children and to be financially independent.

Upon reading the review of ACALA STEM face masks I was intrigued so I had a look on the website for more information. Although I am not a fan of wearing masks at all, Acala Stem face masks are so beautiful on my face. Upon receiving my parcel I was excited to finally see these masks in the flesh. Immediately, I was very pleased I bought the three pack. Acala Stem face masks are so beautiful on my face. Also, your packaging is absolutely gorgeous - all of it! The pouch, the thank you card and the bookmark with your story. Thank you so much, for your values, the contribution you give your workers, your well considered products, your story and the luscious fabric you use. And thank you for your wonderful customer service.
By far, the most comfortable mask I’ve bought so far. I don’t feel suffocated.
Love my new masks. Most comfortable I’ve tried, smell lovely, easy to wash and dry. Hoping it helps my mask related breakouts but haven’t had them long enough to know for sure. Existing breakouts seem to be healing though, so that is a good sign. Would recommend.
I absolutely love this product!!! I have very sensitive skin and even cotton face masks were leaving me with red marks or rashes... highly recommended! Am able to breathe on my walks again
Really great Masks, stylish looking light and finally a mask that you can breath through. Wanted to give it 5 stars but when I click on them it only allows 3 to highlight.
We are attending a wedding in 2 weeks and we did not want to wear unattractive blue masks. These sit very comfortably on your face.
The most comfy and breathable face covering that I have ever own!
It is the most breathable and comfortable mask I have used so far. With the plain material, I was able to do a little customization to make the mask uniquely mine. If the strap is made of a more comfortable material, it would the perfect mask to recommend to everyone.
Beautiful masks, simple but super chic. Breathable and comfortable, great product! Nice pocket to keep them, excellent delivery service.
