In the 2000s, masks in Vietnam were sewn very crudely, limited in size, simple in design, unable to filter smoke, dust, and polluted gas. For the health of herself and her family, Ms. Hue Nuong - Founder of Kissy Activated Fiber Mask Manufacturing Enterprise has had many concerns, with the hope that Vietnamese people can make a mask that can overcome all the above disadvantages.
But it took four years for her idea to come true. That's when she was fortunate to meet Professor Le Ngoc Khanh, to hear him talk about his invention of lipophilic fiber as well as his research on active-fiber. This is a very special fiber capable of filtering out unburnt gasoline vapors, filtering out microscopic dust particles. The function of the active-fiber is the complete technological piece to make a new type of mask, capable of preventing harmful pollutants and fine dust from entering the body.
With the support of the investment fund ABS Foundation (Europe/Norway), Ms. Nuong has researched, tested and created many different designs for different masks with active-fiber as the main material. Kissy mask brand was born as a result of scientific progress combined with kindness. Kissy is the only patented active-fiber mask, a product recommended by the Ministry of Health of Viet Nam. Over time, Kissy active-fiber masks have become more and more popular with domestic customers, and are quickly available in a number of foreign markets such as Japan, Norway and the United States.
During its development, Kissy has received many employees who are deaf, disabled, vocationally trained and brought them jobs, helped them build families, and integrate into the community.
