Reusable face masks and coverings

Available in a variety of colours and sizes, reusable face masks are more environmentally friendly than disposable face coverings, as these washable face masks can be used again and again. Read our guide to find out how to properly care for your reusable face mask.  

Disposable face masks

Our disposable face masks are anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-pollution, with our EN149 (N95) masks filtering out 94% of particles. Choose a 3-ply face mask with a 3-layer construction to help efficiently filtrate particles and bacteria when you’re out and about. 

Kids' face masks

Look after the whole family with kids' face masks and coverings. Designed to offer a snug and secure fit on smaller faces. Children’s face masks come in a range of fun styles to keep them smiling. We can help you find the best face mask and face covering for your little ones, plus don’t forget hand gel and sanitisers for school bags.  

Essentials for the whole family

As well as making sure everyone has a face mask you can also use antibacterial hand sanitisers to keep germs at bay. Keep hand gels and tissues in your bag, so you can stay clean when you can’t wash your hands with water and soap. When you’re at home use hand soap to refresh hands, as well as a range of cleaning products including antibacterial wipes to keep surfaces clean too.
