How to choose a good quality face mask?
I want to make sure that my family is healthy in this pandemic. I always stock up on nutritious food, take vitamins to boost our immunity and disinfect our house every now and then. Whenever I go out, I make sure to bring an alcohol with me and put on a face mask.
Wearing a face mask is mandatory nowadays due to the increasing number of individuals who are Covid19 positive. I wish there are sustainable face masks. Besides frequent hand washing and maintaining at least 1 meter apart from other people, face masks are the easiest and simplest form of defense to help slow the spread of the virus.
But we should educate ourselves that not all face masks are created equal and can protect us thoroughly from the virus.
There are different kinds of face masks but which one do we need to use to provide a better protection? Here’s a guide:
Cloth Mask– This is the cheapest and easiest to find nowadays plus it is reusable. But based on a study which tested masks against exposure to 0.02-1 micron particles, the cloth masks were only able to filter 60% on adults, while only 51.9% on children 5 to 11 years of age. If you don’t have a choice, it is recommended to put tissue as a filter inside the cloth mask to give additional protection but it’s not guaranteed.
Disposable Face Mask – The disposable face mask was able to filter 78.6% (adult) and 73.3% (child) 0.02-1 micron particles. You may not feel sick but this mask will give you higher protection from those who are sick that you might encounter because of the added layer and material used. Surgical masks are made of nonwoven fabric, so they’re usually the safest option for healthcare workers who don’t have access to an N99 or N95 mask.
KN95 Face Mask – N95 mask offers more protection than a surgical mask does because it can filter out both large and small particles when the wearer inhales. This one is your best choice if you will be in a crowded area or in the hospital.
In this day and age of pandemic, protection is beyond covering the face. We should be vigilant in choosing the right type of protection in protecting our livelihood, our loved ones, and most of all our lives.
Buong pamilya namin safe ang feeling with Aoxing Face Mask. Compared to the other face masks that I tried, I found their surgical mask thicker. The N95 and KN95 might be more expensive but based on studies they are safer to use especially for crowded areas such as grocery stores or when you are commuting.
AOXING disposable face masks, KN95 (Adult) and KN95 (Kids for 3 to 14 years) are FDA- and CE- approved masks which passed several clinical and laboratory tests from the Shenzen Academy of Metrology and Quality Inspection (China), Nelson Laboratories (USA) and SGS (USA).

Yes mommy mas maganda at mas safe po ang mga N99 at N95 facemask pero kung walang budget kagaya namin walang choice kundi ang surgical o di kaya reusable cloth facemask lang.
Claire Castillo says
Kn95 was able to filter up to how many percent Mommy Levy?
We’re using both clothe and disposable mask.
Aoxing have Kn95, disposable mask for adult and kids. That’s nice.
