Honeycomb Carbon Filter Masks
This 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. So not only does it absorb vapors but it blocks allergens.
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. Latex free and built as one-size-fits-most, the Honeycomb Carbon Mask is the ideal companion for anyone with allergies, asthma, MCS.
Components of the Honeycomb Mask: Polyester shell, cotton/polyester tape over wire encased in plastic, latex free polyester elastic.
Components of the Carbon filter: Air laid web material consisting of steam activated coconut shell carbon bound onto a polyester support material with a modified acrylonitrile copolymer latex (this synthetic latex does not contain the protein of natural rubber).
Please Note: For those with severe allergies or reactions, please consult your physician prior to use.
- Very Helpful
I am very satisfied with this product. I suffer with multiple chemical sensitivity and found this mask to be very helpful to me. I can't believe the smells don't come through. I would suggest this to anyone.
- great to filter fumes
I am pleased with this mask, I have been in contact with cyanoacrylate fumes, which cause me terrible asthma after I smell it. I used the mask while around the fumes, and had no reaction from the fumes, plus it is comfortable and not hot.
- a real solution
I have been suffering with MCS severe allergies to odors for the past 9 mos. Since finding this mask I have finally been able to enjoy some of the many things i had to give up. It has worked at the hair salon, the movies and stores. These are all places I could not go without a severe reaction. The only drawback is that you cant breath very well while wearing the mask, but that is how it keeps the odors out. I really recommend this product.
I work in a poor work environment diesel tugs coming thru all day . Our company wouldn't get exhaust fans , so me and another employee took things into our own hands and ordered the honeycomb mask . They are wonderful we can't smell the exhaust and both feel 100% better at the end of the day . I'm so happy I found this mask it has made a huge difference I have asthma so at the end of a work day I was so tired but now everything is good . Thank you so much !

I have a smaller face and this mask is fairly small in size, not too big for me like most masks are. It packs flat in my bag or purse to have along for shopping or classes so it is very convenient. So glad to finally have a good looking mask that fits much better than the 3M charcoal filtering masks and I don't have to worry about it getting squished when I'm not wearing it!
- works great
I wear this mask at work and find it to be very comfortable. It fits well and even though I have it on for about eight hours it is still comfortable at the end of the day. The filter fits close to my face and seems to filter out the tiny particles that have been bothering me so much. My allergy symptoms have already improved after just a few days.
- I love this mask
I own several mask from Achoo! I recently purchased the Honeycomb Mask with Carbon Filters and have been very happy with it. It is comfortable, easy to take traveling, and does a great job of protecting my nose from all those allergens out there. It is easier to take with me and doesn't scare my grandchildren as much as some of my other masks do.
- best mask ever
I've tried a number of different masks in the 16 years I've been challenged with MCS. This one is the best - light, easy to breathe thru, no taint of coconut charcoal, and the around-the ears elastic is quicker to put on and doesn't interfere with my hair - yes, incredibly, even with MCS I still have some vanity left, LOL. I used it on a trip to visit my daughters last month - the filter still seems good after sunning, despite a major air-freshener exposure in a public bathroom I couldn't just walk out, as I was helping my 4-year old grandchild go potty, so I was in there for some time.
- Super lightweight, breathable and it works!
I needed a mask because of neighboring smoke pits and wood stoves in our neighborhood which made sleeping with my asthma difficult. This mask is perfect even for sleeping because it filters out small smoke microbes as well as pollen, dust, etc. But you can breathe through it easily and it's even washable. It has carbon for extra filtration but you can't taste or smell it. I spent money on high tech masks at Home Depot but couldn't breathe well in them and I looked like an alien. This is shaped well to the face, is very comfortable and is my go-to mask for everything now.
- Good product
I wanted something to use while riding my bike to work. If the wind is blowing, I end up with a lot of sinus drainage. This helped a lot!!

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
- Dual filtration, tackles allergens, particles, and dust while adsorbing odors, fragrances, and smoke
- 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
- Available in three colors
What I did not like about the Honeycomb Mask
- It's not officially N95 rated. Though close, it doesn't quite meet that standard of particle filtration.
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!
