INTRODUCTION TO THE WORK
This is an innovative three-layer antihaze mask featuring active ventilation. The first layer is non-woven cloth to filter water vapor, hair, dander and large particles. The second layer uses 3M’s H11 high-efficiency HEPA filter, with the PM2.5 purification rate as high as 98 percent. The third layer uses highefficiency activated carbon filter of bamboo fiber to effectively remove odors and harmful gases. The active ventilation design eliminates the sweltering feeling of ordinary masks. It also contains a negative ion generator and fragrant plant essential oil. It has a powerful sevenhour battery life, while its universal USB port makes charging more convenient. The mask shell is magnetic for easy dismantling and replacement. The headband and the body are connected by magic stickers and clever fastening, and the ergonomic design fits the face more comfortably. The product’s round, smooth and cool appearance brings a sense of affinity like a gentle breeze. The side decoration pieces are elegantly curved like a breeze blowing, emphasizing the product’s properties in cleaning the air.
