COMPARISON

5log masks are safer? Yes, and this is why.

Ordinary masks filter airborne particles like dust and dirt, but for smaller forms of microbial life, they can represent a risk for increasing infection. Pathogens like bacteria and also viruses, that are even smaller than the smallest bacteria, can easily slip through. If they don’t and they stay on the mask, viruses will survive and bacteria will even multiply on the mask.

Our 5log mask on the other hand is able to actually destroy microorganisms! This is absolutely revolutionary. It sets a completely new standard in hygiene and gives the maximum protection a face mask can offer. 

5log offers a triple protection: bacteria, viruses & fungi get inactivated on the in- and outside layer that is treated with Livinguard® technology, whilst an additional non-woven industry standard filter in between offers additional protection for other and larger airborne particles in our 5log PRO and 5log ULTRA Mask.

As if this wasn’t enough, there are many more benefits:

5Log Face Masks are infinitely better and cheaper
than conventional N95 masks
