NIPPLE DUST MASK / Baby fine dust mask

NIPPLE DUST MASK
NIPPLE DUST MASK

Fine dust is designated as first grade carcinogenic by the WHO. It was found that the infant death rate increases by 53% while he growth and cognitive ability deteriorates as the density of ultra-fine dust increases. But after conducting market research, I found that there were no masks available for infants who are the most vulnerable to fine dust. Based on this problem, I devised a mask that targets infant. The concept of pacifier was suggested to prevent the habit of child pulling out something cumbersome. And Babies are weak when they breathe. In order to help the babies' breathing, We focused on the mechanism of the gas mask.
