I Can Breathe! Masks – for Allergies, Pollution and Travel

I Can Breathe! logo

Why Buy a Mask That Only Does Half the Job? Most masks being sold on the consumer market contain no activated carbon or insufficient amounts to effectively adsorb toxic chemicals, harmful gases and unwanted odours. This includes N95/N99-rated masks and particle respirators, which only filter out particulate matter, offering you no protection from the hundreds of dangerous chemicals and gases in wildfire smoke, cigarette smoke, traffic pollutants and smog, nor from VOCs and fragrances at home and in the workplace.

Invented by a chronic lung disorder sufferer, I Can Breathe! Masks are designed to provide effective wide-spectrum air cleaning of allergens, particles and gases, while offering washability, durability, comfort and style. I Can Breathe! Masks were chosen by US and New Zealand athletes competing in the 2008 Summer Games to cope with Beijing’s dangerously high levels of air pollution, and are regarded as the finest pollution masks available for chemically sensitive individuals by the environmental illness doctors that we work with.


Note:   I Can Breathe! Masks do not replace industrial strength respirators and are not meant for occupational exposure. Also, due to the personal nature of these products, all mask and replacement filter sales are final with no exchange or refunds permitted.


Shipping via Canada Post is included in all I Can Breathe! Mask prices for delivery within Canada and the US. Masks can also be shipped internationally for a nominal additional shipping charge (email us at info@modernalchemyair.com to arrange for international shipping).

Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter (ACF) Pollution Mask

Our Most Popular Mask for Pollution and Travel

I Can Breathe! Honeycomb Pollution Mask

The I Can Breathe! Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter Pollution Mask comfortably reduces exposure to smog, cigarette smoke, wildfire smoke, ozone, diesel exhaust and fragrances, as well as to particulate matter such as dust, pollen, mould spores, pet dander and lint. Unlike standard masks that only handle particulates, the Pollution Mask contains an activated coconut carbon filter to adsorb chemicals and gaseous pollutants, making it ideal for protection against wildfire smoke and smog.

A porous, washable shell holds and seals the disposable lightweight carbon filter, while the adjustable ear loops and nose grip allow for a personal fit even with eye glasses, goggles or a helmet. The Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter Pollution Mask allows you to talk and be heard without difficulty while wearing it, and fits easily into any pocket.

The carbon filter in the pollution mask should be replaced when breathing becomes difficult or when odours begin to come through, with the actual filter life dependent on your personal sensitivities and the environment the mask is being used in. I Can Breathe colour swatch

Organic Cotton and Bamboo Activated Carbon Mask

Wide-Spectrum Filtration for Chemically Sensitive Individuals

I Can Breathe! Organic Cotton and Bamboo Activated Carbon Mask

The I Can Breathe! Organic Cotton and Bamboo Activated Carbon Mask provides the ultimate defense against debilitating chemicals, gases and odours, as well as superb protection from airborne particulate matter such as dust, pollen, mould spores, pet dander and dust mite by-products.

Ideal for those with chemical sensitivities, this mask features two layers of bamboo carbon rayon encased in 100% certified organic cotton. Bamboo carbon rayon contains nanoparticles of natural bamboo charcoal embedded in rayon, a fibre manufactured from cotton stalks. In addition to providing excellent chemical adsorption, electromagnetic shielding and protection from infrared emissions, bamboo charcoal also has the benefit of being naturally antibacterial and antifungal.

The Organic Cotton and Bamboo Activated Carbon Mask features fully adjustable ear loops that are secured by metal rings, allowing the mask to fit virtually any face type. The built-in nose grip provides an effective seal, while the front rigid support allows you to breathe and talk without sucking in fabric. The mask can be washed up to 60 times* before losing its effectiveness, and fits easily in a pocket or purse. The organic cotton used to manufacture this mask is not bleached or dyed and is naturally latex-free, making it perfect for chemically sensitive people.

*The actual useful life of the activated carbon contained in these masks varies depending on your personal sensitivity levels and the concentration of chemicals, gases and odours it is being exposed to.

Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter (ACF) Sports Mask

Outdoor Air Filtration for Active People

I Can Breathe! Honeycomb Sports Mask

With all of the same particle and chemical filtration capabilities as the regular Honeycomb ACF Pollution Mask, the Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter Sports Mask permits more rapid exhalation of air due to its unique one-way valve system. This design allows for easier and cooler breathing, making the sports mask ideal for use when exercising or engaged in strenuous activity. Like the regular Honeycomb mask, the Sports Mask contains an activated coconut carbon filter to protect you from chemicals and gases, making it great for health-conscious people who cycle or jog near high-traffic roads, industrial areas or active wildfire zones.

The porous, washable shell of the Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter Sports Mask holds and seals the disposable lightweight carbon filter containing the two reusable valves. Adjustable ear loops and nose grip ensure a custom fit, even with eye glasses, goggles or a helmet. In addition, this mask permits you to talk comfortably while wearing it, and fits conveniently into any pocket.

The carbon filter in the sports mask should be replaced when breathing is adversely affected or odours begin to seep through, with the actual filter life dependent on your personal sensitivity levels and the concentration of pollutants in the air. Valves can either be washed and reinserted into the carbon filter or replaced. For frequent usage, we recommended having extra valves on hand in case of loss or breakage, otherwise the filter will not filter pollutants properly.

Organic Cotton Mask

Particle Filtration For People with Sensitive Skin

I Can Breathe! Organic Cotton Mask

The I Can Breathe! 100% certified Organic Cotton Mask is a lightweight, comfortable, multi-purpose mask that is manufactured with absolutely no dyes or bleaches. Three layers of fabric effectively reduce exposure to particulate matter such as dust, pollen, mould spores, pet dander and dust mite by-products. This mask may also be worn damp for humidification in dry environments. Unlike the Organic Cotton and Bamboo Mask above, this mask does not contain activated carbon to filter out chemicals and gases.

Adjustable, non-organic natural cotton twill ear loops hold the mask in place, while metal rings secure the adjustable ear loops. Hard plastic (tested by people with severe sensitivities) is encased within the cotton so that it does not come into contact with your skin. The nose grip provides an effective seal, while the front rigid support allows you to breathe and talk without sucking in the fabric. Naturally latex-free, the Organic Cotton Mask fits discreetly in your pocket.

I Can Breathe! Reviews and Testimonials

“I am very excited to write in to thank you for the suggestion of using two carbon filters in the I Can Breathe! Pollution Mask. This worked to block perfume and body spray when nothing else would. My son is 14 and could not make it to his classes due to severe migraines from perfume & body spray in his high school hallways and bathrooms. He was missing school, taking horrible pain and preventative medications, and suffering terribly from severe and debilitating migraines while falling further behind in school. Thanks to your Pollution Mask and doubling the charcoal activated filters, he can now get to his classes and has been successfully making it through his days without migraines!!! He now goes out with friends with less fear of being “hit with perfume" and is far more physically active (hiking local trails and walking without fear of being exposed to scent). Thank you so very much for allowing him to access his right to education without suffering. Thank you so very, very much. My only regret is not asking for advice and guidance from you sooner. I feel like I have my son back and he feels like he has his life back. I am beyond grateful.”
Heather V., Surrey, BC

“The I Can Breathe! Silk-Lined Cold Weather Mask and Silk Comfort Mask I purchased from you have given me such relief that I've been able to discontinue a couple of medications already. Thank you for a superb product.”
L. Shields, Ottawa, ON

"I am using the I Can Breathe! Honeycomb Activated Carbon Pollution Mask, and last night, for the first time since this nightmare began, I slept soundly with no headache, no coughing and no running nose. I slept 11 hours straight. I woke briefly only two times and each time removed one loop from my ear just to "test" the air, and WHAM I got hit with the vapors combined with the general bad air of New York City. I put my mask back on and the smell disappeared. I just placed another order for more filters, and a second Honeycomb Mask so I can wash one and always have another one clean and ready to wear!"
Anonymous, New York City, NY

“I purchased an I Can Breathe! Silk-Lined Cold Weather Mask from you a couple of weeks ago in the hopes that it would be helpful in allowing me to breathe the cold air that causes me to have a bronchial cough throughout the winter. I wanted to let you know that it has proven to be just what I needed. It works great and I have already experienced a decrease in bronchial tightness and coughing. I will certainly be letting others who have similar problems know that this product is available. Thanks so much!”
B. June, Kingston, ON

“The I Can Breathe! Organic Cotton and Bamboo Masks arrived today. These are a life saver. Our building management replaced our windows a week ago with PVC windows, installed with a lot of glue, and the only way I've managed to stay in my house without feeling sick all the time is to sleep with these masks. I always travel with one when flying too.”
S. Kletke, Edmonton AB

“I just wanted to let you know that I have received my shipment containing my I Can Breathe! mask and a 2-pack of filters. This is the second mask I have purchased, and I wear it when I don't need my Respro mask. I wear my Respro when I am going to be exposed to things such as cigarette smoke, strong chemicals etc. The I Can Breathe! mask is great because it is much lighter in weight, so I don't have to worry about being overheated when I need to wear it. It is ideal for protecting myself from pollen and dust. It is also great when traveling in a car and need to be protected from vehicle emissions as some inevitably seep into the car while on the road. Thanks for a great product!”
E Marks, Norton, NB

“Thank you for sending me the I Can Breathe! Organic Cotton Mask earlier this month. I am impressed that it is able to filter out the majority of chemical scents in malls and exhaust fumes in parking lots.”
Tina C., Toronto, ON

“Your I Can Breathe! Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter Pollution Mask is a lifesaver. I'm able to wear it during my 8 hours of work and go home with no headaches.”
A.V., Ajax, ON

“I have been using your I Can Breathe! Honeycomb Activated Carbon Pollution Mask with mostly good results. It has been very helpful for me in toxic establishments such as Home Depot and our public library. I have even needed to use it in the two small cafes where we attend music as there is some airborne odour emanating from the kitchen which probably also carries some particulates. There was only one occasion when the odour (bathroom) was not filtered out. Initially, I was concerned about the cost and how long the filter would last, but it is still good after almost two months of being used as needed.”
D. Parshall, Montreal, QC

“I have severe MCS/asthma and have used the I Can Breathe! Sports Mask for the past five years with great success. I keep one in both our vehicles, in our condo and with our cycling gear, that way I am sure to be never without a mask. The reusable valve is what helps make this mask unique and such a great aid in controlling exposure. It helps to prevent that over-heating and smothering feeling you can get from a regular face mask. Before these became available I was unable to use a mask. They have now become my first line of defence for unexpected exposure, providing much needed time to vacate an area. My thanks to I Can Breathe Inc and Modern Alchemy for making these masks easily available in Canada.”
Mary V, Halifax, NS

“I recently purchased an I Can Breathe Silk Comfort Mask and an Organic Cotton and Bamboo Activated Carbon Mask from you. I wore the silk mask while sweeping and vacuuming my garage, and for the first time I didn't have asthma symptoms from all the dust. It was very comfortable to wear. I use the activated carbon mask when handling laundry that has come in contact with scents - it is also very effective.”
Nancy, Breadalbanne, PE

“Thanks SO MUCH for your product!!! The I Can Breathe Mask is MUCH better than an N95 mask to block out scented products. I still do smell them, but the filter has cut the fumes down by about 50%, so my brain isn't being turned to mush when I walk through my apartment building. I do have some problems with keeping the mask tight around my nose area - no matter how I adjust it, I still get air blowing up into my eyes, so when I run into areas with heavy odours, I just hold my mask tight with my hands. Again, this is MUCH better than the N95 mask I had tried before your product, so THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!”
R. Woitowitz, Toronto, ON

“I just received my I Can Breathe! Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter Sports Mask and it has sure been helpful. It still doesn’t filter out the real harsh smells like air fresheners and some chemicals like bleach, but it has really helped when I stand in a line up. What a relief!”
Karen H, Chilliwack, BC

“I used one of your I Can Breathe! Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter masks on a recent trip to China. The difference it made in the air quality was remarkable. But the biggest surprise was the almost immediately relief from early warning (allergy) eye and throat irritation symptoms. This was the first time I had worn a mask for any length of time, and in public. I am a convert and advocate. Thanks for your easy to wear and effective product.”
A. Sutherland, Ottawa, ON

“Thank you for your Protection Plus Pollution Nasal Filters and I Can Breathe facial masks with activated charcoal filters. They help greatly with the chemtrail spraying in our area. On extreme spray days, we use the two products together for added protection. However, if one has a runny nose or a cold, the masks are very good by themselves. We highly recommend both products for chem trail spraying protection.”
B. Mencel, Kincardine, ON

“Thank you so much for your I Can Breathe! masks. They are a life saver for me, as without them, I would never be able to leave the house or still be attempting to work.”
C. Helmer, Red Deer, AB

“I recently bought your I Can Breathe! Honeycomb Activated Carbon Filter (ACF) Pollution Mask for my granddaughter who has asthma and is very sensitive to any kind of smoke. We live in the BC Okanagan region, and as you may well know, we have had a lot of forest fires this year causing very poor air quality and smoky conditions. I have to say this mask was a huge help and worked very well for my granddaughter. With her medication and this mask combined, we found it really reduced her asthma attacks. So we are very happy with this product.”
Rose D, Kelowna, BC
