GLOBAL apparel retailer Uniqlo announces the availability of its AIRism Mask in the Philippines starting Friday, September 18, 2020, in all stores nationwide and its online store. Each pack contains three masks and retails for P590. It comes in small (recommended size for kids), medium (for small adult faces) and large (for regular adult dimensions), and is available in black and white.
The center of the AIRism mask employs a filter that delivers a bacterial filtration efficiency of 99 percent, blocking droplets and protecting the skin from bacteria, virus-contaminated particles and pollen while the filter is AIRism mesh fabric. Also, the triple-layer structure has a UPF 50+ rating, which cuts 90 percent of ultraviolet rays.
The AIRism mask is machine-washable and retains its efficacy after 20 times of washing at 40 degrees using regular household detergent. The inner AIRism layer is free of the stiffness or thickness typical of non-woven and cotton masks, reducing stress. The triple-layer mesh structure keeps the mask light and thin, optimizing breathability. The AIRism mask is part of the Uniqlo commitment to enhancing people’s daily lives through LifeWear.
Uniqlo does not guarantee that the AIRism Mask safeguards completely against infection (infiltration). Avoid wearing the mask during strenuous exercise and physical activity or directly under the hot sun. The mask does not replace medical-grade masks. (PR)
