It looks like with this ever-evolving virus, face masks are here to stay for awhile, and no matter how you or I feel personally about it, we have to wear them. They have become part of our daily wardrobe. So you might as well wear a good one. Puraka Masks are designed for enhanced, every-day protection suitable for active or casual use. A Puraka Mask with their laboratory-tested electrostatic filters can reduce 90% of airborne particulates in the critical fine-aerosol range, much more than a typical cloth mask, but with significantly less inhalation resistance and corresponding heart strain than a medical respirator.
Puraka is an American company based in Seattle, Washington, founded in 2018 after the West Coast wildfires. They serve on the ASTM committee developing the national standard for protective face coverings, and test to ensure masks exceed the recommended filtration levels. In short, they have the experience to know how to make a great mask, and what to look for in a filter.
What makes a Puraka Mask better? A protective inner layer of breathable, moisture-resistant polypropylene. Lightweight but tightly-woven 100% cotton shell. The liner that is a foundation-friendly beige color, minimizes visibility of makeup and other stains. Extends under the chin for better fit and performance. Adjustable ear straps for near-universal sizing. Nose clip for improved seal and less fogging of your glasses. Rear pocket accommodates optional carbon pm2.5 filter. Seamless, non-valved design safe for others even without a filter. Comes in a variety of designs and colors to suit and style and need.
