How did Guard My Face
begin and where are we at now?
Our Founder and CEO
Guard My Face
“I found the company because I was working in China and I saw a lot of young kids get sick from air pollution. They were growing up kind of thinking the sky should be coloured in grey in pictures and coughing all day was normal. I felt no child should believe that as a normal experience. So I developed a mask that can help protect children and adults from air pollution.”
“I believe everyone should be able to get out and enjoy life, without having to worry about bad air or the way they look. That’s why we have developed a high-function, high-fashion mask that gives you the best chance of [respiratory] health.”
Guard My Face Co start with
A Quest for Breathing a Better Air
After researching academic publications, health studies, news sources and historical pollution data, our Founder and CEO, Christopher began to realise the scale of the pollution issue in China and other big cities in the world. This was a problem that was claiming the lives of literally millions of people around the world every year.
A curiosity turned into a passion, which morphed into an obsession – a quest for breathing a better air.
Therefore, all of 14 components that make up the mask have been carefully sourced, with quality being at the forefront of every product development decision.
We’re Growing and Continuing to Protect.
Soon after its founding, Guard My Face gained investment from Y Combinator (YC) via their Fellowship Programme.
