Honeycomb Mask, or Honeycomb ACF Pollution Mask, is made with a disposable activated carbon
filter that is sealed inside a comfortable lightweight frame. The
carbon fabric works with inner layers of filtration material to trap
these indoor and outdoor pollutants: fragrances, particles, cigarette
soot, smog, dust, diesel fumes, formaldehyde. It also filters from
50% to 95% of household chemicals depending on the substance. Mask can be worn without the filters to avoid gnats and other bugs.
The Honeycomb Mask was designed to effectively seal in the carbon filter. This filter does not replace industrial strength
respirators and is not meant for extreme occupational exposure, but for most every day tasks, this mask is more than sufficient to filter
common indoor and outdoor air pollution. Through testing, the honeycomb carbon face mask was shown to be comparable to a standard N95 mask
in the filtration of particles 1.0 microns in size and larger. This face mask trapped 99-100% of particles in that size range.
During travel, the disposable activated carbon filter cleans the recycled air on airplanes,
trains, and buses. The filtration helps to reduce irritation of nasal passages and of the middle ear. This helps minimized the build up of
pressure and inner ear pain.
long the activated carbon filter lasts depends on your sensitivities, your usage, and environmental factors. You should change filters
when breathing becomes difficult. You can purchase replacement carbon filters for this mask. The ear loops adjust for a comfortable fit, even
with eye glasses, goggles, a hat, or helmet. This mask is washable, but the mask should not require frequent washings.

I am an outside adventurer. My husband and I ride motorcycles, hike, bike, and explore Arizona every chance we get. Unfortunately, I am allergic to most everything! The wind in Flagstaff can be so brutal that I can't go out. But not any more! I just put on the mask and off we go! It doesn't restrict air flow and it filters out everything! This is a great mask for a good price! Be SURE to reorder the filters so that it remains effective!!

My name is Lynne, A new and sudden severe allergy sufferer . I thought I would never be able to enjoy the things I used to. Some as simple as shopping in the cities with my daughter . I bought the honey comb mask just hoping it might work. It does. It is wonderful. It keeps the smells out my nose and lungs. If they are really bad I just double up the carbon filter and I can go just about anywhere. I can go to my favorite park again that is near the free way. I can go in the laundry soap isle at the grocery store. Thank you Achooallergy, for the simple things I can do again. Not to mention the big ones.

Customer Q & A
Q1: I do lash extentions and I'm exposed to cyanacrylate fumes. I'm suffering from congestion and lung pain. Which mask would work the best for me?
A: I generally recommend people start with the least restrictive and work their way up. The Honecomb carbon is a good place to start. The activated carbon and particle filter media will help. How much it helps will depend on the concentration and specifics of your work area. I've found that in salons and particularly places where nails are done, air circulation is critical. These spaces can quickly fill with an array of less than healthy fumes from the adhesives, solvents, removers, and polishes used. The best bet is a good air circulation system that can help to bring fresh outdoor air in or filter the air in the space. When these things are done and done right, the Honeycomb carbon mask can help finish off what remains and what you're immediately exposed to. Some people find that doubling up the filters in the masks helps a great deal. It does make it a bit more difficult to breathe through but filters better for stronger fumes and odors. The next step up would be the Respro Techno mask OR the Respro Allergy mask with the optional chemical/particle filters. These seal a bit tighter around the face and provide slightly better particle filtration than the Honeycomb Carbon. The next step up would be a 6291 Respirator with the MCS or Organic Vapor filters. Though, I will say, if you look at that mask, it's a half face respirator. So it may not be the best fit in terms of client perception. Try the Honeycomb carbon and pick up an extra set of filters. If you still have fumes coming through, double the filters. If you STILL have fumes coming through, someone needs to address the air circulation/filtration of that space!
Q2: Does using this mask to breathe around people wearing fragrances that I am sensitive to and exposed to continuously during the day at work help to reduce the eye irritation?
A: Probably not much. The eye irritation may be reduced somewhat but not eliminated. It may be reduced simply because none of our senses work completely independently, and each influences the other, much in the way losing your sense of smell can impact your sense of taste. Other the other hand, a common symptom of allergies is watery eyes. This isn't entirely caused by particulate getting in the eye, but is more a part of the overall response from the body to an allergen or irritant. So, it should help some to reduce the aspect of the reaction that is part of the overall response though would have no impact on a reaction caused by your eyes being exposed to tiny fragrance particles directly, but I cannot say that definitively that it would eliminate that problem.
Q3: Does the mask filter out smoke? Thanks
A: Yes. Effectiveness will vary based on how well you fit the mask and the conditions where you are wearing it, but most people who opt for this mask do so b/c it does tackle fragrance, smoke and odors as well as common particle allergens.

Honeycomb Mask with Carbon Filter
In 2008, the Honeycomb Carbon Mask from I Can Breathe! was a fixture with some world class athletes and professional support staff
during travel and preparation for the Beijing Olympic games.
This mask is a respected product that works well for many different applications. The carbon insert
in the mask filters out smog, smoke, and other pollutants. I wore it while I was cleaning my
bathtub with a very weak bleach mixture. The mask muted the extremely strong smell.
Although I could still slightly smell the bleach, it was so much
better with the mask on. We are also painting a room in our house
and the Honeycomb Carbon Mask helped me withstand the smell of the
paint. Lastly I have used this mask while working with gasoline and notice a big difference in odor than with a simple
N95 rated mask.
Not only is the mask effective, it is also comfortable. The
mask itself is soft, adjustable and washable. You simply insert the
carbon sleeve into the mask. Then if needed you pull on either sides
of the mask to make it a tighter fit. The mask comfortably fits over
you nose and mouth. In order to get the
maximum protection, you should change the carbon as soon as you can
smell the difference.
What I like about the Honeycomb Mask
It keeps me from getting those headaches after working in polluted environments
Very comfortable and easy to adjust
The carbon insert has Velcro so it sticks to the mask easily
Carbon replacement filters are inexpensive
The filtration is comparable to N95 masks with the added benefit of filtering odors
What I did not like about the Honeycomb Mask
I wish it was a little more breathable, but that is to be expected since the carbon is thick.
I give the Honeycomb Carbon Mask 5 out of 5 stars. It is
a terrific mask for those of us who are sensitive to certain particles
or chemicals! I would recommend having a few on hand just in
case because each job is different and some jobs the carbon might
absorb more than others. For traveling or odd jobs around the house this face mask is a perfect fit!
