Mask Your Face
Not Your Smile!
Did you know that communication relies on both verbal and non-verbal language?
Facial expressions, micro gestures, and intonation are critical to be understood.
Traditional masks eliminate those essential cues.
This makes a traditional mask an obstacle for the hearing impaired and deaf, who make up 5% of the world’s population.
Believing that masks are just as essential as being understood, Rafi Nova created the Smile Mask to protect and connect people.
Want to help us make it even better?

Our mission at Rafi Nova is to support communities, both near and far, so we have shifted our focus to support the community where they need it most: safety and protection. We began manufacturing face masks in March and continue to donate one mask per order to frontline workers.
We created the Smile Mask to meet the needs of the deaf and hearing-impaired community that has been greatly affected by mask mandates around the world. We hope to make communication easier for anyone that relies on lip-reading and to allow everyone to see each other’s smiles.
