ViroMasks are made in the United Arab Emirates following ISO quality controls and Swiss technology.


An estimated 1.5 million anti-viral masks are being produced every month using revolutionary HeiQ Viroblock technology, the first textile technology in the world to be proven effect against the SARS-CoV-2 virus following a detailed study by Peter Doherty Institute for infection and immunity at the University of Melbourne, Australia. The masks were also tested on European EN149 standards for respirators by ISO 17025 accredited lab in UAE and proven compliant with high European requirements.


ViroMasks with its innovative design of one-way air-flow are comfortable and provide fresh filtered air with every breath.

Usman Khalid, CEO and Co-founder of ViroMasks, said: “Having spent a large part of my childhood in Saudi Arabia; I always have a soft corner for the country and its people. Even with the high demand elsewhere; I wanted to ensure that my childhood homeland gets its hand on the safest daily use mask in the world first.”


He added, “We can all help by ensuring we wear reusable and washable masks. Our masks not only neutralize virus but are healthy for our environment. I do not want to see pristine deserts and beaches with disposable mask trash. What we wear for couple of hours and throw takes 450 Years to degrade in natural environment. Let us preserve the beauty of Arabia and save it for our children to enjoy as well.” 

“With respect to creating jobs in the region”, Usman adds, “we have added more than a thousand jobs in United Arab Emirates directly and indirectly. We would like to double this number in Saudi Arabia through our eCommerce, retail and distribution partners.”
