We are constantly iterating on our products at Cactus. Following customer feedback, we have designed a new Cactus facemask that's washable, with replaceable filters (while doing our best to keep all of the goodness from our previous mask).
Replaceable filter pack:
5 filters in a pack
The wool-filter is designed to be more than twice as easy to breathe through than standard masks.
The filter media filters 99% of particles down to 0.3 microns in size - for reference, to meet N95 standard, a filter must block 95% of these particles.
Made in NZ.
As mentioned above, the filter is tested in-house to exceed P2/N95 levels.
Do not wash the filter. The face mask is washable, but without the filter. Check care tab for further information.
Check the care tab above for when to replace your filter.
Wearing the mask cannot fully remove the risk of infection or contracting a disease.
Due to Filters & Face Masks being a sanitary product, wecannot accept them for return, refund or exchange for any reason. We recognise this is quite different from the regularCactus stance on returns/refunds/exchanges but unfortunately the nature of this product gives us no other option.
Stop using the mask immediately if breathing becomes difficult.
This Face Mask is a consumer product. It is not a respirator. It is not a medical device.
Care Removing the Filter:
As with any mask used to filter out germs and viruses, care needs to be taken when removing the mask and the filter. Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly after touching the mask or filter.
Taking Care of your Mask & Filter:
Store below 30 degrees in a dry place. Keep separately in a sealed bag.
The filter cannot be washed. To wash the filter makes it less effective.
Remove and dispose of your filter before washing mask.
Lifetime of your Filter:
Filter life primarily depends on air conditions, daily user usage (hrs) and rate of breathing. The filter is said to be at the end of its life when it is noticeably harder to breathe through but, with normal use, we expect a pack of 5 filters to last the lifetime of the mask.
Replacing your Filter
If you are removing the filter from your mask, we recommend disposing of it and replacing it.
The wool, fluffy side of the filter is to face away from you (face down when you insert it into the mask.

For hygiene purposes, we’ve had to package these Mask Filters in a plastic bag. We’re not fond of this solution and will be looking for other methods, but in the meantime, let’s find as many ways as we can to ensure this bag is not single use.
