Fogged glasses, ear loop irritation, and large gaps from ill-fitting face masks are now a thing of the past!
Sealed Gaps Save Lives!
Los Angeles, Ca – Cabeau Inc, a travel comfort + accessories brand, is excited to announce the launch of Cabeau Tape™, a medical-grade, FDA and dermatologist approved tape that increases both the safety and comfort of government mandated face masks. Cabeau Tape™ was launched July 20th, 2020.
The FDA and dermatologist-approved, medical-grade Cabeau Tape has multiple patents pending and is compatible with all face masks. Cabeau Tape is available in a compact case containing 200 pieces to seal gaps around the edges of a face mask. These gaps cause eyeglass fogging and significant loss in mask filtration efficacy. Users simply peel off a piece of tape and secure it to the gaps to the right and left of the nose bridge, along the sides of the mask, and if needed, any other exposed gap. It is recommended to apply on a dry, clean face and is ideal on faces without facial hair. Once the Cabeau Tape is secured to the mask, the ear loops become optional for non-medical users and can be removed to prevent irritation at the back of the ears. Each Cabeau Tape piece can be reused up to 3 times, should the user choose to take off and put back on their mask.

“Cabeau Tape is the best solution I have found that provides a secure seal around any face mask, to ensure the highest level of protection. It can be reused several times and is gentle enough for everyday use. It’s also the perfect protection for kids who have smaller faces and are prone to pulling off their masks.”
Dr. Deborah Goddard, Harvard University trained dermatologist
David Sternlight, founder and CEO of Cabeau Inc. was stunned after reviewing hundreds of studies on face mask efficacy and sought to create a way to both improve the efficacy of face masks and fix the pain-points of wearing a face mask. According to a study run by the National Library of Medicine, ACS Nano, Aerosol Filtration Efficiency of Common Fabrics Used in Respiratory Cloth Masks, “Studies [also] imply that gaps (as caused by an improper fit of the mask) can result in over a 60% decrease in the filtration efficiency.”
Another study found that more than 80% of virus-sized particles penetrating face masks come through gaps at the faceseal according to Performance of an N95 Filtering Facepiece Particulate Respirator and a Surgical Mask During Human Breathing:Two Pathways for Particle Penetration.
Face shapes vary widely, especially between different aged users. Cabeau Tape seals the always-present gaps in a face mask that expose users to germs. Additionally, the gentle adhesive is strong enough to keep the mask securely positioned on one’s face, so that the mask will never fall beneath the user’s nose. Runners, cyclists, and athletes as well as professionals like food and beverage employees, hospitality staff, and hair stylists can rejoice in a mask that will stay put without the constant rubbing of their ear loops.
“I use Cabeau Tape on both my customers and myself. I use a few pieces of the tape and snip off their ear loops, so I don’t have any strings in the way. Hair tends to fall into my customer’s masks during haircuts and it’s always difficult to get behind the ears. It helps keep out the falling pieces of hair, so customers don’t end up inhaling their own hair. I love using it during my workday, it prevents my mask from slipping while working. I don’t get red marks behind my ears and most importantly it keeps my masked sealed for maximum protection.” – Tiffany Nales, hairstylist, @TiffanyNalesHair
