This many-layered mask is highly functional. It has multiple protective functions that protect against bacteria, germs, dust, fumes, pollens and fine particles (PM 2.5)
The one-way valve removes all stale air from within the mask and stops any unfiltered air from entering. It also helps reduce moisture and bacteria growth. There are three protective layers between your face and the valve. It is not a direct valve that offers no protection. The air coming through the valve has to “breathe” or be filtered through these layers, including the two layers of special filtration material. These layers and the filtered layers particularly, act to filter the airflow in and out of the mask thereby protecting both the wearer and others. The natural cotton layer closest to the skin has an antibacterial coating for added protection.
This mask is comfortable and adjustable. The ear straps can be changed to suit your shape head, there is wire above the nose within the mask that can be adjusted to get a good fit and the mask comes with nose pads for added comfort and to stop glasses fogging up. It's eco-friendly as you can hand wash and reuse this mask.
And they look good! Designed in New Zealand these fabulous face masks feature the native trees of New Zealand - either the mighty Pohutukawa Tree, Native Trees and the Silver Fern.
Each mask comes with 2 extra filters in the bag. The use of these filters helps improve the effectiveness of the reusable face masks and increases their lifespan.
