Honeycomb Mask – Why I Love It
The Honeycomb Mask is my go-to mask. This is the mask that changed my life!
When I was at my worst with chemical sensitivities, I knew that I needed a break from them so that my body could recover, so that I could regain tolerance and get back up on top of things.
This Honeycomb Mask provided that break for me and turned my life around.
This mask is designed to filter out things at a fume level and can filter out things like perfumes, car exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke and other things of that nature.
I’ve got a table here to show you a comparison of how this mask performs as opposed to the other masks, so just have a little look at that. Check out the table below to see how fantastic this mask is filtering out tiny particles.
Note that it is similar to the N95 or P2 mask up to PM0.7, although it's not quite as effective. If you are cycling, exercising or outside a lot, you may prefer the Sports Kit.
This is the favourite mask for people with chemical sensitivities and is well-loved in that community.
The Activated Carbon Filters for the Honeycomb Mask are good for 40 hours of use, depending on your level of sensitivity and how polluted the environment is.
You can also save the old filters and can use them to double-up when you are going in an extra polluted environment. For instance, on the airport or on the plane.
The mask fits easily into your pocket and is comfortable to wear for a long period of time.

How to Use Your Honeycomb Mask
When you receive your mask be sure to wash it before use.
Please note that the filters are not washable but the outer mask is.
Using an unscented soap, wash it by hand and hang it to dry.
It’s lightweight and dries very quickly when you wash it. Be sure to remove the filter first before you wash it.
Once dry, position the filter in it and then fit the mask to your face as per the video below.
The Washable Organic Cotton Bamboo Carbon Filter needs to be washed before use. The same method of washing can be used when you feel it is “clogged”. Simply hand wash it using an unscented mild soap, rinse it well, then roll it in a towel to remove excess water; and finally, hang it to dry.
