Here's everything you need to know about these Hong Kong-made masks. 

Before we start, here are some lingo you need to know:

PFE - Particulate Filtration Efficiency (can filter particles from 0.1 microns upwards)
VFE - Viral Filtration Efficiency (can filter particles from 0.1 to 5 microns upwards)
ASTM - An ASTM standardised face mask can be categorised as level one (low protection), level two (medium protection), and level three (high protection).

“Scrambling for masks might be a struggle, scrambling masks for children is an agony”. Two Hong Kong dads who work in the education sector noticed the prevalent scarcity in children’s masks on the market and decided to take it upon themselves by launching a children’s mask brand. These two thoughtful dads also took the common discomfort children may encounter when wearing masks into consideration and brought out the ‘earsaver’, an adjustable plastic band, to alleviate the discomfort mask-wearing causes. Mask holders are also available for sale to minimise the use of tissues to wrap masks when eating as an environmentally conscious effort.

Masks are available in pastel blue, pink, green, and purple. Every Maskology mask complies with the highest classification of Type IIR for the EN14683 and ASTM Level one(BFE> 99%, PFB> 95%)
