Pollution is an unfortunate reality of the world we live in and millions of people are affected by it every day. Certain groups of people are more susceptible to serious health problems than others. Individuals with heart or lung disease, children, pregnant women, and athletes all belong to these higher risk groups.
Even for healthy people, polluted air can cause respiratory irritation or breathing difficulties during exercise or outdoor activities. Immediate health problems include aggravated cardiovascular and respiratory illness, added stress to heart and lungs, which must work harder to supply the body with oxygen, and damaged cells in the respiratory system. Long-term exposure to polluted air can have permanent health effects such as decreased lung function and development of diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and possibly cancer.
From smog filled urban environments to country towns polluted by transportation smoke, the Gcare mask reduces the risk of exposure to harmful airborne particulates. The neoprene or mesh material ensures unmatched comfortability from the peak of summer to the dead of winter.
Replaceable active carbon filters provide superior protection against PM2.5 – air pollutants with a diameter of 2.5 microns or less. For higher intensity applications such as jogging, our HEPA filters allow for effortless breathability. Two one-way exhalation valves expel heat and condensation, keeping the inside dry for long term use. These valves combined with an adjustable nose clip prevent lens fogging. Gcare Air Purifier Mask gives those in contact with air pollution the ability to have a small, proficient, easy to carry tool that offers protection from a wide array of airborne particulates.
