Asia’s largest retailer Uniqlo will be releasing their much-awaited AIRism face masks starting June 19.
The masks have the same material as the brand’s AIRism line that is cool and dries quickly. It has a triple-layer structure. The material closest to the skin is from the AIRism line, the second layer blocks bacteria and pollen, and the outer layer blocks ultraviolet rays. Each mask can be washed and reused.
According to the company’s official announcement, the masks have a bacterial and pollen filtration efficiency of 99% even after 20 washes. However, it does not completely block viruses, including the COVID-19.
It is only available in white and comes in three sizes: small, medium, and large. One pack of three masks is JPY990 ≈ PHP460.
As of now, the AIRism masks will be available in Uniqlo stores in Japan and the company’s website. Let’s cross our fingers and hope it will come to the Philippines soon!
