Our snoods are made from super lightweight, biodegradable bamboo treated with ViralOff® virus reducing technology. Comfort and breathable was the key for our snood design and our lightweight snood is perfect for protecting your ears, nose and mouth against viruses. The antiviral coating stops 99%* of viral activity. Part or our pledge to the planet our Sciin products can be reused, re-washed and recycled to help sustain a healthy planet.
Pull the snood over the top of your head and position the material so it sits comfortably across your nose and mouth. If you wish to cover your ears simply pull the material up and position so your ears are covered. If you require the fitting to be tighter you can clip the back of the snood with a hair clip.
How does the ViralOff coating work?
ViralOff stops viral activity through interaction with key proteins. It shows a 99% reduction of many different viruses, on a treated material, within 2 hours. It is shown by test ISO18184:2019, on two different Influenza A strains, ATCC VR-1679 (H3N2) and ATCC VR-1469 (H1N1).
Does it help against all viruses?
ViralOff have tested the active ingredient against Influenza A, BirdFlu, Norovirus and Corona (SARS) over the years, and in all cases, we have achieved 99% levels of reduction. What ViralOff brings with the ISO18184:2019 is a standard test for the determination of the antiviral activity of textile products in a two-hour timespan, where it has to reduce the virus by 99%, to pass. This test uses viruses of the Influenza A strain, but more and other virus strains will be tested as they become available.
How long does it last?
It is a durable and always-on treatment. For best performance and sustainability, wash less and only when needed.
Can ViralOff be used next to skin?
Yes it can be used next to skin, it does not affect the skin as it doesn't interfere with the skin's natural bacterial flora.
The mask is classified as a face covering.
