PM2.5 Filter Included with Mask
2.5 microns is pretty darn small — less than a third of a human hair! The included PM2.5 filter can handle particles that tiny. Even with daily use, the filters are effective in filtering out PM2.5 for up to a week thanks to the multi-layered non-woven fabric construction and activated carbon layer.
Done with your filter? They’re recyclable!
Multi-Layered Carbon Filter
Meltblown Triple Filter Layer
Melt blowing is a conventional way of making micro- and nanofibers. Unlike traditionally woven fibers, the melt blowing process weaves an intricate web for filtering gas and air.
Activated Carbon Layer
Activated carbon is an incredibly porous surface that is used in gas filtration to trap oil vapors, odors, and other hydrocarbons from the air.
Nonwoven fabrics provide a myriad of specific functions including filtration, use as a bacterial barrier, and sterility. This is why non-woven fabrics are commonly found in hospital-grade materials.
should i even be wearing a face mask? i feel fine.
The CDC has recommended that everyone wear face coverings in public settings, like pharmacies and grocery stores, to slow the spread of the virus and to avoid unwittingly spreading the virus asymptomatically.
Cloth face coverings help you stay safe and helps others around you stay safe too.
why wear This mask and not N95 or Surgical masks?
N95 masks should be reserved for medical professionals.
Surgical masks can get expensive since you can only wear them once before discarding. Their paper material is not as comfortable as cotton against your face.
Brave New Look masks are reusable, washable, and cheaper on a per-use basis than N95 and disposable surgical masks. Plus, they’re more comfortable too.

Testimonials & Reviews
The adult mask is the first cloth mask that has fit me properly. I’m thrilled. They’ve either been too small or too big. This was the first to fit well, feels well-made, and I don’t mind wearing one bit.Kurt Elster, The Unofficial Shopify Podcast
