Super soft and lightweight - perfect for summer.
Raw Lotus Microfibre traditional unisex face covering
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.
The Production process of our lotus microfibre requires no water, electricity, oil or gas to produce, preserving our planet's precious resources, making it the most ecological fabric in the world.
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. We’re proud of Acala Stem’s values, which are Community, Natural Beauty, Sustainability and Transparency.
For centuries eastern philosophers have documented the Lotus stem (also known as lotus root) and its symbolic importance. The health benefits of lotus root are endless. We encourage you to undergo your own research in discovering its incredible benefits for the body and soul.

This mask is comfortable due to the pleats, and the lovely soft material. The pleats allow more movement when talking so the mask doesn't slide down. The ordering process was easy and the delivery quick!
I bought this mask on the promise it was effective and breathable. I am not disappointed! It is certainly my most comfortable mask to talk and sing in hours at a time. Highly recommend. I bought the same mask for my husband, he finds the ear loops a little tight, but for me they are fine
Super comfortable mask that fits well and is breathable. Would have liked a metal strip to bend over my nose so I added one in myself.
Soft, breathable and connecting to nature through lady lotus.
A very comfortable mask. Wonderful customer service and super fast postage. A great company that clearly values the Earth and it’s people
Smells wonderful and is really light and comfortable to wear, albeit a bit loose on my freakishly small face. But I made an ear-extender thing for another mask that has the bonus of fixing the sizing for me on this one. Win win!
Face Mask is comfortable to wear and easy to wash and dry
I have a couple of different brands of facemasks, but this one is definitely my favourite. Comfortable to wear for an extended time, and also very breathable. I love it!
Quality: Very comfortable. Soft and easy to breath. Service: Excellent Delivery: Excellent Happy customer
