Never has there been a time for consumers to be complacent with their own personal hygiene and safety regimes. There is no avoiding the fact that the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we live almost overnight from lockdowns to social distancing to wearing of face coverings. Consumers are becoming savvy and the need to protect ourselves is broadening to include wanting cleaner homes and antimicrobial products that can provide this. The use of antimicrobial textile products is an effective first line of defense against the spread of bacteria and other pathogens – from face coverings, to bed linen and towels. The antimicrobial properties of SilverGuard also mean that both acne-causing and odour-producing bacteria are also eliminated which means healthier skin and textiles that smell fresher for longer.
SilverGuard antimicrobial products help protect you, your family, and your home against the spread of infection.

Face coverings to suit your individual needs
Health organisations and governments are increasingly recommending the use of face coverings when outside of the home, and it has been acknowledged that any face covering that covers the nose and mouth will be of benefit in reducing the spread of Coronavirus and other airborne pathogens. As of early May 2020, 88% of the world’s population live in countries that recommend or mandate the use of face coverings in public.
Masks should be used as part of a comprehensive strategy of measures to suppress transmission and save lives – WHO, 2020
SilverGuard face coverings allow for healthier skin by tackling maskne (mask acne), redness, and skin irritations as the silver thread technology eliminate acne-causing bacteria working to reduce breakouts on the skin.
Face Masks: SilverGuard’s IONIC+™ three-layer face masks offer three distinct layers of protection:
- Inner IONIC+™ layer: has received clinical confirmation on its non-woven fabric, metallised with silver, with laboratory results revealing a reduction in Human Coronavirus between four and six times faster than the unmetallised control fabric,
- The middle polypropylene filter layer,
- Cotton outer.
SilverGuard offers two styles of face masks – cupped or pleated – in two sizes – Regular and Large - and four stylish colours – Black, Navy, Red, and Grey. Every face mask has been designed with comfort in mind with a strengthened nose bridge that allows for a fit that shapes to your individual face, soft elastic ear loops, and an adjustable head extender if you prefer to not use the ear loops around your ears.
Snoods: while snoods are not intended to be used as medical-grade face masks, SilverGuard’s IONIC+™ snoods are using silver thread technology which provides an added antimicrobial layer of protection. They also offer both a stylish and versatile alternative to a face mask and are an ideal alternative for outdoor activities. SilverGuard offers three sizes of snoods – Small, Regular and Large – in two colours – Charcoal and Navy.
On unprotected surfaces, microbes can double in number every twenty minutes. Specifically, in the bathroom, the wet and humid environment provides ideal conditions for bacteria and mould to flourish. It also shouldn’t come as a surprise that beds are also a breeding ground for bacteria.
Humans shed around 15 million skin cells each night which provides a perfect setting for bacteria to thrive. One study has shown that after just one week of use, pillowcases were found to have 17 thousand times more bacteria than a toilet seat. In order to prevent this growth, regular cleaning and laundering is vital. So making the switch to SilverGuard's self-sanitising antimicrobial towels and bed linen is an obvious choice, even more so during this time.
Aprons, table linens and more, SilverGuard textiles can offer a variety of textile products.
