Almost all our products at SuperFit are curated and self-tried, and here’s one more product offering which has made it to the list due to a personal need and thus making the cut to our range of products.
Having moved to Gurgaon, I too started noticing the unease of breathing and congestion due to hazardous air quality in National Capital Region (NCR). Had only read about it in newspapers and seen on TV. But experiencing first hand got me close to reality. I started looking for some good quality anti-pollution face masks. Unfortunately I couldn’t find these in most pharmacy or general stores. Some did have the very basic medical disposal masks. While those would help quite a few tide through the dangerous air quality its just not enough in the long run.
Having researched for sometime here’s one product that our team finally got our hands on.
The ACF (activated carbon fabric) anti-pollution face mask is a high performance mask made of Viscose Rayon Fiber. It contains even distribution of microspores which provides greater surface area for absorption of harmful pollutants and particles.
It’s been quite effective for me and has eased my walks and jogs to quite an extent. I don’t feel the congestion now. It looks quite cool as well, as can be seen in the pic below.
But most importantly, the face mask quality has been approved meeting the environmental standard (IISC Bangalore, CE, ISO etc). These are comfortable to wear and have low breathing resistance. Of course the first-time someone wears it, it does feel alien but you get used to it by end of first day itself.
The filters are washable and reusable. The life cycle of the filter is minimum 6 months. The filter efficiency is 96% as per CLI standard.
If you live in and around an area with poor quality of air and spend a significant time outdoor while commuting or physical activity you should get one for yourself.
The anti-pollution face mask is available on SuperFit.Asia
