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.

BIGGEST mask they sell, and GREAT after-sales support.
Can say enough about this company, their products, and their after-hours support from Rochelle. The few times I had issues, we fixed it up. Quick shipments for free , too. Have bought many masks and filters and subscribe to filters. Also take advantage of monthly specials, including extending my subscription to 12 months and up the level to 10 each month (filters) and that gave me a free UV light sterilization at no additional charge, SWEET!.

I have ordered these face coverings for family members in several states. Everything continues to arrive without problems. I love your customer care, as evidenced by your lovely email just checking to see if all is well. I know of no other company that has treated me this well, also sending a different-sized replacement mask if it doesn't fit well. It is nice to be treated so royally during these difficult times. I have raved and recommended Puraka to people in many places after quite a bit of research. My elderly mother feels safe in your masks. My sister's husband had trouble breathing with other masks, but Puraka makes it easier. My son's kids and wife steal them from each other!

These masks are the best! I use them to cut pollen and now smoke pollution when walking my dog. Very helpful product for allergy sufferers! They are very comfortable to wear. The company has great customer service and the masks are well constructed.

After searching the Internet for the perfect mask for months, and buying quite a few kinds that didn't quite work out, I found out about Puraka from my sister. I have bought the Workplace, the Summer, the Essential, and their filters. All are top-quality, with all the features I had been looking for: Adjustable nose wire, adjustable ear loops, middle layer of filtering material, pockets to insert PM.2.5 filters. Puraka's subscription program for fresh filters is so convenient. Customer service is great! And, they offer cute designs! Highly recommend!
