Purifas has won two Gold Stevie Awards in the 2021 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards for its patent-pending hygiene solution for massage and allied health therapists.

Our award entries were based on our flagship product, the FaceShield ― a patent-pending 3D hygiene barrier for the face hole and head rest of massage tables. It is recyclable, soft and durable, and is the only product to provide 100% coverage of the inner face hole ― an area which has shown to house nasty pathogens.

FaceShield Stevie

Purifas was named:

  1. 2021 Gold Stevie Winner for Excellence in Innovation in Health Care Industries — Up to 100 Employees.
  2. 2021 Gold Stevie Winner for Most Innovative Startup of the Year — Business Product Industries.

The FaceShield is the only protective barrier for the face that is fit-for-purpose in the allied health, massage and beauty industries and is scientifically proven to reduce the risk of bacterial transmission by 86%.

More than 900 nominations from organisations across the Asia-Pacific region were considered across all award categories. Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 100 executives around the world acting as judges in March and April.

According to some of the judges:

“Fabulous! As someone who comes from a similar industry, having to resort to layered tissues on my therapy tables for 26 years, I applaud you for this innovation. I can definitely understand the timesaving and hygienic factors of your product, especially in these times. Well done on another amazing invention from Down Under.”

“Purifas has innovatively resolved a key hygiene issue for therapy settings. Way to be responsible!”

“Much-needed innovative product. Impressive Growth statistics. I expect to see this in every single clinic in every single industry across the globe. Fabulous entry. Congratulations.”

The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the only business awards program to recognise innovation in the workplace in all 29 nations of the Asia-Pacific region.  The Stevie Awards are widely considered to be the world's premier business awards, conferring recognition for achievement in programs such as The International Business Awards® for 19 years.

Nicknamed the Steviesfor the Greek word for “crowned,” the winners will be celebrated during a virtual (online) awards ceremony on Wednesday, 14 July.

WORLD'S FIRST RESEARCH ― A significant amount of government funding is consistently allocated to research into infection risks and prevention in hospital environments, however, the same can't be said for therapy environments. This lack of research prompted us to commission our own preliminary research into the infection risks associated with therapy beds, with a focus on the transmission of both bacteria and saliva. The results are in and they will shock you!
