 Why are Moksha Air Pollution Masks in a Class of Their Own ? 

People exposed to polluted air for prolonged periods are advised to take necessary precautions, such as wearing air pollution masks, to avoid heart disease, stroke and respiratory ailments including lung cancer. An average person takes in ½ a litre of air per breath. Even though masks currently available in the market technically provide protection against air pollution, since the air filter used severely impedes the flow of air, the masks leave one gasping for breath. Hence existing masks cannot be worn beyond a few minutes and are therefore useless for all practical purposes.

Our Moksha brand of path-breaking air pollution masks uses a powerful fan to suck in clean air through the filter and an exhaust fan of a similar configuration to expel stale air from the mask thus making it effortless on the part of the user to breathe fresh air comfortably. These fans are run by an equally powerful battery positioned at a safe distance from the face rather than being embedded in the fans.
