Ghanaian Lawyer, and socialite – Sandra Ankobiah has taken her time to explain how dangerous the printed fabrics used in producing face masks can be to one’s health if not properly made.
In an advisory post, Sandra disclosed how the locally-produced facial mask could cause some serious health damage if not well-made.
Sharing her tips on her Snapchat handle, Sandra Ankobiah noted:
“There is a heightened interest in the use of printed fabrics in producing facial masks, which has been huge business sense for many. There has been a bit of research and engagement with some fabric production companies on possible health implications.
Reliable information from GTP indicates that there are chemicals in printed fabrics (which prevent it from quick fade etc) and that the chemical is not healthy to breathe in.
But since we want to be fashionable with nose masks and still want to use colourful fabrics, the advice is to please “line the printed fabrics with plain calico or any plain material without prints,” – Sandra said and continued.
Ghana, due to plans to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus has called for facial masks to be worn across.
The use of printed fabrics, especially the ones produced GTP has become very common in the market.
