N95 Activated Charcoal Filter replacement for Face Mask
Surgical masks are highly ineffective due to the materials they are made out of and their design. Almost anything can get through a surgical mask and often the side of the face is exposed. Any exposed area around the mouth and nose gives viruses ample opportunity to enter the body.
The professional face mask on the other hand is packed with a lot of useful features:
The magic is its filter. Nothing gets past the activated carbon filter that works as a super barrier between you and the viruses.

- Bacteria, viruses and other germs
- Pollen and other allergens
- Bush fire smoke and cigarettes
- Lightweight, soft and comfortable materials used in its construction
- Quick-drying and breathable
- It’s design prevent the mask from falling off
- Prevents respiratory ailments and virus infection by ensuring that you do not breathe inn harmful particles and bacteria.
- 5 layer Activated carbon filter
1* Activated carbon filters
The Carbon filters can be cleaned by spraying disinfectant on the surface.
Carbon filters should be replaced regularly.
- Use mask at own risk, incorrect use and care of mask may result in exposure to contaminants and viruses.
- Auto-DNA will not take any responsibility for any person becoming infected by any virus, bacteria or other, as we have no control over your actions or the way in which you use or care for the mask.

Things You Need to Know About PM2.5
Although mostly invisible to the naked eye, the air we breathe is full of tiny particles of; chemicals, soil, smoke, dust or allergens, in the form of liquids, gases or solids. When we burn fossil fuels for energy use and production. The release of gases and chemicals are creates air pollution, posing a risk to human health and the planet as a whole. These minuscule airborne hazards are referred to as particulate matter, or PM.
Where does PM come from?
The amount of particulate matter in the air at any given time depends on the environment you find yourself in. These particles are released from a variety of sources both indoors and outdoors. When inside, PM levels are typically the same or lower than outside.
Here are a few things that increase the levels of particulate matter floating around an indoor space:
- burning candles or fires
- using kerosene heaters
- diffusing essential oils
- cleaning using common chemical products
- opening doors and windows to outdoor polluted environments
- using hairsprays, aerosol room freshers or deodorants
Although there are hundreds of sources of outdoor air pollutants, the main contributors that increase the levels of particulate matter outdoors are:
- power generators
- industrial and agricultural emissions
- residential heating and cooking
- the manufacture and distribution of chemicals
- forrest fires
Why is it called 2.5?
The 2.5 in PM2.5 refers to the size of the pollutant in micrometers. Bear with us here while it gets a bit mathematics-y! Micrometers have this symbol: µm and are equivalent to 0.001 millimeters. The smallest thing that the average human eye can perceive is about 0.1 millimeters, which is around the same width as a human hair. So in order for us to see something as incredibly small as a micrometer, we need to use powerful microscopes. Here’s a diagram from the Environmental Protection Agency to help you visualize the scale of these tiny particles.
While it is obvious that breathing in any particles in the air is going to aggravate your airways, experts are particularly worried about the extremely small particles such as PM2.5 as they not only penetrate deep into our lungs but are also so minute that they can even pass into our bloodstream.
What are the negative effects of exposure to PM2.5?
Depending on how healthy you are in general, PM2.5 will have different long and short term negative health effects. When exposed to levels of PM2.5 between to moderate – hazardous range, one may experience the following effects:
- shortness of breath
- eye, nose and throat irritation
- excessive coughing and wheezing
- diminished lung function and lung disease
- diminished heart function, sometimes resulting in heart attack
- asthma attacks
