  2. Where To Buy Surgical Masks Online

    March 25, 2020 by barbara

    The world is gripping with the pandemic Novel Coronavirus that has infected over 400,000 people worldwide and recorded over 18,000 deaths todate.  Hospitals and government are desperately searching for masks to protect these frontliners.

    The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

    • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
    • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

    These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

    If you are healthy, only wear mask when you only need to wear mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected 2019-nCoV infection.  Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing.  Masks are only effective when used in combination with frequent hand washing with alcohol-based hand sanitizes or soap and water.

    Panic buying has resulted in a shortage of face masks in the market. Some people even resorted to diy their own face masks. A normal face mask cannot protect against the coronavirus.  A more specialized mask, known as an N95 respirator, can protect against the new coronavirus, also called SARS-CoV-2. The respirator is thicker than a surgical mask.  These masks are available at this online store –

    Also available is this KN95 Particulate Filtering Face Mask.

    FFP2 Mask 5 Pack, Safety Face Mask Disposable Anti Pollution Mask 5 Layer Air Filter

    3-ply breathable face mask which can be shipped in 24 hours.

    Hurry and check out now to get the protection you need.  Remember to wash your hands always with soap and water or hand sanitizers.  Be safe, everyone!

  4. 3 Benefits of Castor Oil

    March 24, 2020 by barbara

    Many companies across different industries use some sort of oil. Industrial castor oil, for example, works well in soaps, cosmetics and manufacturing. The oil comes from castor beans and is a renewable resource, which is useful as the world runs out of other forms of oil. In the coming years, more companies will have to switch to using renewable oils. If you’re considering using castor oil, consider this and other benefits that it offers.

    1. It’s Renewable

    With the decline of the natural oil supply, renewable sources are becoming more important. Since castor oil comes from the growth of castor beans, it’s a renewable source of oil. You don’t have to worry about the supply suddenly going away. Whether you need a little or a lot of castor oil, you just have to worry about sourcing it from a farmer.

    2. It’s Easy to Grow

    While castor beans primarily grow in a small region in India, they’re easy to grow. Of course, that means you don’t have to worry about it dying out. However, the production has to keep up with the demand. As the popularity castor oil increases, this may change as it can be hard to grow in certain climates.

    3. It’s Useful

    You can use castor oil in a variety of products and manufacturing methods. Whether you make soaps or need a way to smooth out machinery, you can use castor oil. While it’s not the most popular vegetable oil, it works well for many things. It also works well in industrial products like paint, ink and coatings. The oil can even blend with diesel fuel for a biodiesel alternative.

    Castor oil may not be a household name, but it offers plenty of uses and benefits. Whatever industry you work in, you can find a way to incorporate the renewable oil. Then, you won’t have to worry about using up a resource.
