The Manta sleep mask is the world’s first blackout eye mask that prioritizes comfort in any environment. It’s constructed with durable but gentle materials that adjust to your needs. Feel free to move your eye covers’ position, angle, and the tightness of the straps until you’re comfy.
Just a pinprick of light can disrupt REM sleep; thankfully, the Manta sleep mask blocks out 100 percent of light. It manages to do so with zero eye pressure, so you can forget you’re even wearing a sleep mask.
We recommend this eye mask for long haul flights or time spent as a passenger during a lengthy road trip. Of course, they’re perfect for restorative naps at home, or in hotel rooms while you adjust to a new time zone. Whether you sleep on your back, belly, or side, this uber-comfy sleep mask won’t slip.
With your Manta sleep mask, you’ll also get premium ear plugs and a mesh wash and storage bag. You can rest assured (pun intended) you’re placing high quality materials on sensitive parts of your skin, because the Manta sleep mask is made with cotton, soft foam, and plush cotton velour.
These premium materials not only help you get the perfect fit, but they mean your sleep mask will last through many nights of sleep.
Manta sleep masks are 100 percent machine washable. Machine wash cold in included mesh bag. Do not bleach. Dry flat. Do not iron.
To get the most from your sleep mask, always use your mesh pouch when machine washing your Manta, otherwise your eye covers may be damaged.
Good sleep hygiene is an imperative. Unfortunately, sleep can be hard to get when hormones are imbalanced, or we’re otherwise out of sorts.
Light can disrupt REM sleep — the deepest, most restorative stage of sleep — even if it’s artificial. In fact, artificial light — especially blue light — from phones, laptops, lamps and more disrupt the body’s circadian rhythm. This affects brain wave patterns, hormone production, and cell regulation.
Poor sleep has been linked to health issues like:
- Breast and prostate cancers
- Cardiovascular disease
Fortunately, high quality sleep masks and ear plugs have been scientifically proven to promote healthy sleep. It’s true: Chinese researchers conducted a study in 2010 where subjects were meant to sleep in a well-lit, simulated hospital unit. The subjects using eye masks and ear plugs experienced deeper and longer REM sleep, among other things.
The science is clear: Adequate sleep is essential, and all the forms of light in our lives can interrupt healthy sleep patterns. Block it all out with the Manta sleep mask.
