There are many different types of face masks and face coverings available to buy all over the internet, from the disposable surgical type, to homemade fabric masks, and even designer labels have created face masks for their customers to wear in style. But what are the pros and cons of these masks, and what makes the performance of our snood design stand out against the rest?
The snood shape of our face coverings has no side gaps and contours to the face, providing the wearer and those around them with better protection.
Comfort Is Key
This snood design is also much more comfortable than other types of face coverings, and it offers two-way protection! It provides maximum comfort whilst covering the contours of the face, stopping the escape and entry of virus-laden fluid aerosols and droplets and ultimately slowing down the rate of infection. This element of comfort makes the Shields perfect for long hours of use without the chance of irritation or skin damage and it is much easier to breathe when on the move, working or exercising.
If you do notice that the Virustatic Shield has gaps around the top of your nose, there’s no need to worry. The air you breathe in and out will always opt for the path of least resistance, which is directly through the lightweight, breathable fabric around your nostrils and mouth and combined with the naturally occurring protein coating the shield delivers natural aerosol filtration.
Single Use Masks
When comparing the Virustatic Shield to single use surgical face masks, it’s important to bear the words ‘single use’ in mind. Disposable masks usually cost about £2.50 each and can only be worn for four hours before you need to change them and throw your old one away. They have contributed to a high amount of water pollution since the start of the pandemic, with many marine biologists warning of a hidden danger when the pandemic begins to slow.
The Virustatic Shield is machine washable so it doesn’t have to be thrown away.
Having said this, it is important to keep your hands as clean as possible as they will be coming into close contact with your face, so please bear that in mind when you do so.
So, whether you’re looking to protect yourself from infection or to protect the environment from disposable masks, the Virustatic Shield has many benefits that are very hard to overlook and ignore.
