Face Guard FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Face Guard?
An anti-pollution filter and scarf in one, Face Guard provides protection from smog, dust, and allergens whilst keeping your neck warm. A nanofiber membrane is integrated into the scarf which filters particles and pollution.
Designed with comfort, utility and everyday use in mind; it has an adjustable nose strip and elastic closure to provide minimal air leakage for any face shape.
How does the Face Guard sit securely on my face?
When designing, close attention was paid to nose-cheek and below-chin parts. The construction of the scarf insures that there are no gaps, thanks to the overall shape, elements, length and other design characteristics.
Face Guard fits and sits well. It means the air goes only through the part with the nanofiber membrane, which is placed in the frontal area. The overall functionality and efficiency was tested by independent laboratories and those results are even better than for N95 masks.
Will the outer filter layer ever get "clogged up" my pollutants?
If this happens, the solution is easy. The whole scarf, including the nanofiber filter inside, is washable. Hand wash from time to time if you notice any build up, hang to dry and you're good to go.
Will the fabric's filtration properties wear down over time, or with washing?
You can hand wash Face Guard any time. The nanofiber filter is washable, which is one of its best benefits. The efficiency of the nanofiber filter will decrease over time depending on the environment and frequent you use it, and wash it. You can count on perfect pollution protection for 7-12 months with everyday use.
Do I need to replace the nanofiber filter? If so, how often?
You don't have to worry about buying any filters with Face Guard. The technology is washable so we recommend hand washing occasionally. You will be able to use it over and over again without needing to replace any external filters or other elements.
The filter's lifetime really depends on the environment and how often you use it. You can count on perfect pollution protection for 7-12 months with everyday use.
