Disposable surgical mask / Disposable surgical mask

Disposable surgical mask

Masks that can be decomposed naturally, due to the serious situation of the current epidemic, the filter layer material used in the original medical mask is difficult to decompose, so the inner layer and the filter layer are modified to make the mask even if it is littered. Will not cause further damage to the earth.

In response to the defect that disposable masks cannot know whether they have been used or not, a test strip that can show saliva and nasal mucus is added to the innermost layer to let people who need to use a mask know that it is an unused mask.
