“Our Pediatric Medical Masks are constructed using N95-level filtration, made from raw virgin polypropylene to block 99.2% of bacteria and particles down to 0.1 microns. And, our masks feature our proprietary Electrostatic Armor Meltblown filtration within the inner layer for the utmost protection available.”

Pair with a mask brace for great protection!
