Why did we at UPENDS decide that a vaping solution with antibacterial properties was important?
A recent quote from UK academic Dr Suzi Gage has highlighted this particular issue, focusing on the potential for vape mouthpieces to become a breeding-ground for bacteria.
According to our research, antibacterial technology has been adopted and well accepted in many other products that we humans have close contact with, especially the hands and mouth. As we know, vaporizers always have frequent and direct contact with our mouths. However, until now no brands have tried to introduce this technology into vaporizers. To solve this problem, we decided to introduce antibacterial technology into our product Uppen.
To address the antibacterial process, we naturally turned to silver ion. The antimicrobial properties of silver have been known about for centuries. Currently, silver and silver nanoparticles are widely used in items for the medical and food industries.
Today's innovative Uppen mouthpiece is the result of months of careful research, development and independent testing.
It is manufactured from a food-grade plastic material with nanometric silver incorporated, and has been laboratory testedagainst three common bacteria (Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans). The tests showed that the antibacterial rate within 24 hours was over 99.9%.
With its ability to significantly reduce the risk of bacterial contamination or infection in daily use, this breakthrough in vaping technology provides users with a little extra peace of mind.
