WILL THE MASK FIT MY FACE
We currently offer masks that measure 5.28 x 4.53 x 0.96 inches (13.4 x 11.5 x 2.4 cm). The masks have adjustable ear straps and a nose clip embedded. By adjusting the ear straps and nose clip, you’re able to form a seal around your face and freely breathe through the 5-ply filter.
WHY DOESN’T THE MASK HAVE VALVES
MAU Protection Masks do not have valves in order to protect the air that those around you breathe as well. Valved masks allow unfiltered exhalations. They function as an indirect access for virus-laden droplets you’re breathing out. Valves do not make sense for infection control. Read about CDC’s no-valve mask recommendations HERE
IS THE MASK HEAVY
Each mask weighs 0.54oz (15.3g), lightweight and travel-friendly.
HOW DO I CLEAN THE MASK
Hand wash with warm water and soap.
HOW LONG CAN I USE THE MASK
Your mask will last months depending on how you care for it. Do not machine wash.
WHAT DOES THE MASK FILTER
Our masks have N95 activated carbon filters - they protect against PM2.5, PM0.3, smog, smoke, dust, allergens, and bacteria.
HOW MANY FILTERS COME WITH THE MASK
Each MAU Mask is packaged with 2 filters.
WHEN SHOULD I CHANGE THE FILTER
When the filter is used actively, daily, one filter may be used for up to 2-3 weeks. The filter does not expire if you are not using it daily. We recommend you immediately change your filter if it is wet or has discolored due to impurities/pollution.
HOW DO I REMOVE THE FILTER
Disinfect your hands, remove the filter, replace with a new filter.
HAVE THE FILTERS BEEN TESTED
Our filters have been tested by Nelson Labs, USA, the leading global provider of laboratory testing and expert advisory services. Tests confirmed that 98% of PM 2.5 is filtered.
HOW CAN I ORDER MORE FILTERS

WHAT MAKES THE CRYSTAL HYDROGEL DIFFERENT FROM NATURAL SHEET MASKS
Crystal masks are clear and fit the contours of any face shape snugly, making sure every inch of your skin is getting the benefits of the mask’s ingredients. Hydrogel masks are jelly-like, they are made from a gel texture not paper/cotton. This allows them to hold more moisture.
