product info
A six-layer face mask is designed to protection against bacteria, virus and air pollution. 

It was in early 2020 that the world woke up to the scare of a global pandemic called Coronavirus. Covid -19 virus created havoc across the world, resulting in many deaths. While the first and second waves were devastating, the Omicron variant has been relatively mild. This global health scare made us conscious of hygiene and staying alert. It also meant that were asked to follow some coronavirus best practices, one of them being the need to wear face masks.

We have all heard of the need to wear N95 masks. However, another kind of mask also gained currency during that period and that was a six-layer mask. While Covid-19 is a kind of virus, human beings are constantly under attack from all kinds of viruses and bacteria. Even as the world battles the much-milder fourth wave of coronavirus and is threatened by a new menace called Monkey Pox (very different from Covid 19), we have come to realise the centrality of social distancing and need to mask up at all times. If it isn't a virus, it is likely to be bacteria. Else, the rising pollution levels too need us to be vigilant. A six-layer mask is an effective and inexpensive way of tackling such issues.

If you are looking for options, then Amazon has a good collection of such masks. We have bunched together some of them and think you will find them helpful too. Take a look.
