This Face Mask has been created to protect against dust, pollen, pollution, smoke and germs. It is 100% cotton and comes with two replaceable activated charcoal filters that fit into the mask. This filter is the key to breathing clean air.
The charcoal filter rests in a pocket of the mask's lining, so exhaled air goes through the charcoal filter before exiting the mask. The 5-layer charcoal filter, rated PM2.5, will filter out particles like smoke and smog as small as 2.5 microns. It is perfect for forest fires, smog, and smoky environments. The layer of activated charcoal will adsorb* viruses, bacteria and gases from the air.
The mask is washable and reusable. Before washing, remove the filter insert You may hand wash the mask and let it air dry, or you may place it in a garment
bag, wash it on delicate cycle, and air dry.
The 100% cotton mask features:
- Adjustable metal nose bridge
Adjustable ear loops
Quality hand-stitched material
Made from recycled materials
Durable construction for long life
Two replaceable charcoal filter inserts come with the Face Mask package:
Each filter insert is made of 5 layers with an activated charcoal layer in the center.
- PM2.5 will filter particulate matter (PM) as small as 2.5 microns, which
includes smoke and smog (and is so tiny you can only see a 2.5 micron
particle under a microscope).
- Each insert is usable for 30-50 hours (under smoggy or smoky conditions, but for weeks if just used for germs). Consider replacing the filter when it starts to get clogged with particulate.
