Face Blok Shark Tank Update (Season 1)

A face block is a surgical mask that prevents germs etc. from entering the body through the mouth and nose. Founder Irina Blok entered Shark Tank Season 1 Episode 5 with this face mask product and asked for $50k from the sharks for 30% equity.

She needs investment from sharks in Shark Tank so that she can grow her business. Unfortunately, this business did not get any kind of investment in Shark Tank. We do not think this is a product in which anyone would want to invest.

What Is Face Blok?

A face block is a designed Fashion Surgical mask that works to prevent germs etc. She sells this mask in different fancy designs. All hospitals have a normal mask, so she feels that this could be a better product for them.

How Was The Shark Tank Pitch of Face Blok?

After entering Shark Tank, Irina asked the sharks for $50k for 30% equity. She explained to the Sharks about her surgical face mask product. Within a few weeks of the product launch, the product website received 700,000 visitors.

Due to this, Irina got a few hundred dollars in sales. Barbara Corcoran said that this product is freaky so that is why she is out. Kevin Harrington said that there is no need for this product in the market and that is why he is out. Daymond John also said he is out.

Robert Herjavec said this is a side business with a job, so he is out. Kevin O’Leary said that it is a unique idea but if it is not an investable product then he is out. This was a small pitch in this episode of Shark Tank.
