Why choose a mask from Puraka?

We Know Masks | Puraka was founded in Seattle, Washington in 2018, after the West Coast wildfires. We served on the joint CDC/ASTM committee that developed the national standard for protective face coverings, F3502. Our masks are tested in North American laboratories to ensure they exceed the minimum filtration levels. In short, we have the experience to know how to make a great mask, and what to look for in a filter.

More Filtration, Less Discomfort | Puraka Masks are designed for enhanced, every-day protection suitable for active or casual use. A Puraka Mask with our laboratory-tested electrostatic filters can reduce 90% of airborne particulates in the critical fine-aerosol range, much more than a typical cloth mask, but with significantly less inhalation resistance and corresponding heart strain than a medical respirator (learn more).

Our In-Stock Guarantee | A mask is not something you should have to wait for. Every product in our store is ready to ship from one of our U.S. fulfillment centers, usually within one business day or less from when you place your order. We offer free shipping on any order of two or more masks, or you can upgrade to USPS Priority or First Class for just $5!

What goes in to Puraka's carbon pm2.5 filters?

Melt-blown  Melt-blown Fabric

Composition by Weight:  40%

Characteristics:  High quality melt-blown fabric is the most important part of a particulate filter. Non-woven fibers act as a physical barrier against microscopic particulates while also providing an electrostatic barrier to stop aerosolized nano-particles.

Spun-bond  Spun-bond Fabric

Composition by Weight:  40%

Characteristics:  Spun-bond is a non-woven fabric that filters out larger particles, while providing structure to the inner melt-blown layers.

Activated Carbon  Activated Carbon Fabric

Composition by Weight:  20%

Characteristics:  Activated carbon fabric traps particulates via a process called adsorption, and also serves as an antibacterial and deodorizer.

Important Safety Information

Not a Medical Mask

A Puraka Mask is not designed as nor intended for used as a substitute for medical face masks and respirators used in a healthcare setting. Although our PM2.5 filters are manufactured and tested to N95-equivalent standards, the masks are not appropriate for industrial use.

Testing & Certification

Essential Masks meet F3502 standards, the US benchmark for protective barrier face masks. Puraka's disposable PM2.5 filters are tested to meet multiple filtration standards, including the European Union's EN 149:2001+A1:2009 standard and China's GB2626-2006 KN95 material standards, functionally equivalent to the United States' N95 standard (the US does not provide certification for non-sealed respirators). Puraka also relies on independent laboratories to test, certify and verify that our filters exceed performance specifications.


The most important thing you can do to prevent catching (and giving) viral infections is to wear a mask, practice physical distancing, avoid touching your mouth and nose with your hands, and wash your hands regularly. A facemask is not a substitute for the other mitigation strategies. A facemask and carbon pm2.5 filter will be highly effective against water droplets carrying airborne illnesses. Fine aerosols traveling solo will be greatly reduced, but will not be completely eliminated.

Fit is Key
Research shows that fit is one of the key factors in ultra-fine filtration. These masks have an adjustable metal nose piece. Unfortunately the elastic runs through the mask sides which cause it to bunch up. When you exhale the air blows out of the sides.

We have been using Puraka masks since March when the pandemic became more widespread. We also signed up for the subscription to get replacement filters each month. With the subscription, the filters are very affordable. The masks are comfortable and the straps adjust easily for a better fit. One of my daughters has a more petite face and we ordered the small adult mask and it fit much better. It is easy to breathe, even through the filters, and you can change them out once you notice that it is getting a little harder to breathe. We love being able to wash our masks too.

I have tried a few different masks, and didn’t like them for various reasons (didn’t stay in place, no spot for a filter, tight on ears). The Puraka masks solve all those issues. They are comfortable to wear and most importantly stay put, so I’m not constantly touching it to adjust it. I have young kids and they love the child size masks. They keep them on, even for long periods of time. The masks also wash and dry well and keep their shape.

Quality Masks
I recently bought enough of these for four people to be able to wear one and then let it age for a day or two before using it again. I wore one for four hours straight the first day and then for another two hours that day. My wife also wore hers for the same and found it fit her also and was comfortable. These are well made masks. The design gives good coverage and doesn’t work its way up, or down as you talk so you don’t have to adjust it, which puts your hands in your face. The material is a nice tight weave. The workmanship is good too. The elastic band is thicker than some others I have seen. The rubber tube on the elastic bands allows them to be infinitely adjustable for comfort and snugness, and they stay in place. The wire in the nose bridge is thick enough that it holds its shape too. Once I got it shaped, I didn’t need to adjust it again. I bought these for the PM2.5 filter which works really well. Even without the filter though this is a three-layer mask. The filters are tested to N95 standard and are easy to insert because both sides of the pocket open. I feel comfortable wearing this and I feel comfortable about wearing it. It is a quality product with good coverage and a serious filter. I would buy it again. I also signed up for the monthly mailing of filters. I don't have to spend a fortune each time to get a huge batch, they will come as I need them.
