Germ-Resistant Scarves Introduced as MARFS to protect against bacteria, viruses and airborne contaminants.MARFS, a wearable, germ-resistant product, was introduced in the health and wellness market earlier this month by Wrall LLC. Marfs function as both a mask and a scarf. When pulled over the mouth and nose, Marfs help to improve health by eliminating airborne contaminates by filtering the air. There have been growing health concerns among travelers and other health-conscious individuals who are looking for ways to avoid sickness, especially during air travel and other close-contact situations. Recent studies have indicated that viruses and bacteria such as MRSA and E. Coli are capable of living in the back of airport seat pockets for several days, making them a haven for germs. Marfs’ function to reduce the spread of germs and ultimately eliminate the hazard of harmful bacteria, making them ideal for travelers, commuters, students, and those prone to sickness.
Marfs fibers are made from bamboo charcoal, active carbon, and are infused with elemental silver, resulting in a specific design to protect the body from bacteria, viruses, molds and yeasts. The natural properties of bamboo charcoal and active carbon allow the Marfs to have humidity and thermal regulating mechanisms that keep wearers feeling comfortable in any weather. The combination of these natural elements also produce negative ions, which are tasteless, odorless and invisible molecules that we inhale. Negative ions are abundantly found in environments such as the mountains or beaches, and have been said to improve blood flow and circulation, help alleviate stress, and increase energy levels.
Marfs have been thoroughly evaluated by an independent laboratory under ASTM standards to ensure optimum protection and longevity.
Comprised of organic elements and minerals, Marfs’ engineering process is completely natural and environmentally friendly, whereas other antibacterial and deodorizing fabrics rely on chemicals and dyes. As one of the fastest growing plants in the world, bamboo is eco-friendly and grows without the need of any pesticides or fertilizers.
Edward Jones, inventor of Marfs, stated, “We all know it’s impossible to completely avoid germs, but research shows the key to good health is avoiding and eliminating those germs as much as possible.” With more than 30 years of experience as a Tribologist and COO, Jones’ area of expertise includes research, formulation, development, manufacturing, and marketing of sustainable, safe and environmentally friendly products.
Marfs are an official product of Wrall LLC that operates out of Mantua, NJ and is run by Edward Jones. They can be purchased for $28.46 from their on line store. Marfs will be exhibiting this September at the Green Festival at the LA Convention Center.
