✅ ENJOY SUPERIOR FILTRATION TECHNOLOGY
Join the group of people who have done their homework and know that only 3 layers face masks with a polypropylene filter really work.
Most reusable face masks offer little protection because they don't use the right filter materials. Let alone that they have been tested. With our 3-layer reusable KandyMask face mask with a filter made of melt-blown polypropylene and activated carbon, you know you're getting the best protection possible.

✅ PROVEN 99.8% VIRAL FILTRATION EFFICIENCY, 99.76% BACTERIAL FILTRATION EFFICIENCY
Nelson Labs tested our reusable face masks and proved that they filter particularly well. This gives you all the protection you need. Among other things, we achieve the following:
- 99.80% Viral Filtration Efficiency
- 99.76% Bacterial Filtration Efficiency
- 99.30% Particle Filtration Efficiency
- 97.14% NaCl Particle Filtration Efficiency
KandyMask uses the same high-quality filter material (non-woven melt-blown polypropylene) as the well-known N95 disposable face masks or medical face masks. Because a KandyMask uses a double layer of this filter material, a KandyMask achieves higher scores than the N95 face masks, such as a 97.14% score on the NaCl Particle Filtration Efficiency Test versus the 95% of N95 face masks.
A KandyMask protects you excellently against all kinds of airborne contaminants such as pollen, allergens, smoke, aerosols, viruses, and bacteria. Read more about the tests and see our test results for yourself here.
✅ MAXIMUM WEARING COMFORT
This model with two breathing valves is unique because it offers you maximum protection and wearing comfort. The two valves expel the warm, humid air quickly. This keeps it inside the mask cool and dry. The exhalation resistance remains low, so you can continue to breathe comfortably. Furthermore, the ergonomic design, the soft and breathable materials, and the soft ear straps provide that extra comfort. That makes this model very suitable when you have to wear your face mask for long periods of time (e.g. all day).
Do you wear glasses? The two valves will give you extra wearing comfort, because your glasses won't fog up anymore (or at least much less). The warm air, which is responsible for fogging up the glasses, escapes quickly and easily through the front of the face mask. Your glasses remain clear and clean. Face masks without or with only one breathing valve, force the air to escape upwards, leading to contact with your cool glasses, which results in the fogged up glasses. Read more on our blog post here.
Do you want to work out with a face mask? You will also benefit from the two valves, because of the low breathing resistance. Through the effort of exercising you will breathe deeper and heavier. The double breathing valves with their low exhalation resistance, helps reduce the hinder of wearing a face mask during exercise. Exercise is lighter and you sweat less than when wearing a face mask without breathing valves.
Please note: the exhaled air leaves your face mask unfiltered. If you want to protect yourself and your surroundings, please take a KandyMask without breathing valves. The wearing comfort of this model without valves is a bit lower than the model with breathing valves.
COMPARISON BETWEEN THE MODEL WITH AND WITHOUT BREATHING VALVE
- Protects yourself
- Extra wearing comfort because warm moist air is quickly discharged
- More suitable for athletes, because of its low exhalation resistance
|- Protects yourself
- Protects your environment as well
- Doesn't protect your environment
|- A little less wearing comfort
- Glasses wearers more affected by fogged glasses
✅ PERFECT FIT DUE TO 4 SIZES
A tight fit of your face mask is crucial for proper filtering. After all, no air should flow through the sides unfiltered. Because of the different sizes, the flexible nose clip and adjustable ear straps (available free of charge if needed) ensure that your KandyMask fits your face perfectly and airtight. This prevents unwanted leaks and ensures proper filtration.
We have developed 4 different sizes, so you are assured of a perfect fit. The 'small' is designed specifically for children.
Our rule of thumb to choose the right size is based on body weight:
- Small: for kids between 20 and 35 kilograms
- Medium: for everyone between 36 and 75 kilograms
- Large: for everyone between 76 and 105 kilograms
- Extra Large: for everyone between 105 and 140 kilograms

✅ WASHABLE BY HAND WARM WATER AND SOAP
We advise you to wash the outside and inside of your KandyMask by hand and warm water with soap, and then let it dry on a rack. Don't wet your KandyMask through and through with soapy water. Don't put your KandyMask in the washing machine or dryer either, as this will damage the polypropylene filter and your KandyMask will lose its superior filtration qualities.
The main reason that other masks can be washed in a washing machine is that they do not use advanced filter materials (and therefore do not have superior filtering properties such as a KandyMask face mask ).
✅ FILTER LIFE EXPECTANCY OF 6 - 12 MONTHS
We advise you to replace your KandyMask every 6 to 12 months, depending on how often you use it. The filter in your KandyMask will then have filtered so many particles from the air that the filter material begins to clog up and loses its superior filtering qualities. The good news is that all these particles are in the mask instead of in your lungs!
An indicator that you need to replace KandyMask is when breathing starts to get more difficult. The filter material is then so clogged that the breathing resistance becomes noticeably greater. If you want to understand exactly how the filter material works, read our background article here.
✅ ALL EYES ON YOU
Look your best with this stylish premium face mask, without sacrificing filter performance. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the quality and finish of your KandyMask. So be prepared for people to ask you questions about your face mask, like. "Where did you buy it?", "Does it work well?" and "Is it comfortable?" It happens to us almost every day.
