For use when walking through the city, cycling, skateboarding, using a scooter, whilst on an airplane or day to day protection from hay-fever.
To achieve best possible protection, the rectangular filter needs to fit over the nose and mouth to ensure inhaled air goes through the nanofiber membrane. To ensure a tight fit adjust both the tightness of the elastic band at the back of your head and the shape of the adjustable metal clip on your nose.

What are you protected from?
Can the Face Guard Pollution Scarf protect me from influenza or airborne viruses?
The FaceGuard Pollution Scarf does not belong to the equipment for the medical or professional use that would be certified by official standards, but it can help shield against airborne particles. Nanofiber filter masks usually belong to a one-time equipment category. However, because the nanofiber filter used is covered by special textile layer, the FaceGuard is more durable in terms of wear and care and therefore is able to be washed.
The FaceGuard Pollution Scarf can provide guaranteed virus protection before washing. After washing it will still protect you but there will be some reduced effectiveness. For protection against viruses it is necessary to wash it after every single use. For protection from pollution, the scarf can be washed and you can still enjoy high levels of protection. We recommend up to 50 washes, naturally there will be some decline in effectiveness as you approach the end of the life of the product. Always hand wash without using aggressive substances like softener or bleach and refer to our care instructions found in the FAQs more more guidance and care instructions.
The FaceGuard Pollution Scarf can offer a comfortable and economic alternative to a traditional face mask.
