How Far Out Hygiene started
When the COVID-19 pandemic was heating up in January 2020, our Managing Director (Pierre, see below) wanted to learn about it as much as possible (what little we knew back then) and how to protect himself and his family. Back then, Amazon sellers were price gouging, with one N95 mask was selling for £75 per mask.
As the pandemic progressed and reached us in the UK, the PPE shortage was becoming an issue, and, equally importantly, any protection options for consumers were lacking. Many products were obviously fake. Many were of unclear origin or could not be proven to offer the protection they claimed. It was hard to buy something genuinely protective, yet it should not be hard. Far Out Hygiene was born to make it easy.
Pierre spent all of the lockdown and most of the summer finding genuine suppliers (lots of stories there), spending a lot of time and paying for many samples before finding genuine products.
About our Managing Director
Our founder and Managing Director is Pierre Far. He has a PhD in microbial genetics from the University of Cambridge. Of course he used PPE during his PhD, and that is partly why he is so interested in starting Far Out Hygiene.
After Cambridge, he worked in several science and technology roles, most recently at Google and currently managing Deliberate Digital, a product management consultancy.
