UNIQLO has unveiled an AIRism Mask that will release in Japan to help combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Using the same comfort technology employed in their garments, the AIRism Mask is built with a three-layer structure. The first layer is a filter with 99% Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) used to block particles, pollen and droplets. A mesh second layer helps cut 90% of UV rays and a third smooth layer adds comfort.

UNIQLO will be releasing the AIRism Mask on June 19 in three sizes - S, M, and L. Each customer will be able to purchase one size. The masks will be sold in a pack of three for ¥990 JPY (~$9 USD). It is recommended that you wash the mask immediately after wearing with household detergent. The lifespan of each mask is about 20 wears. Head over to to learn more. Last month, UNIQLO donated 20,000 pieces of AIRism products to NYC healthcare professionals.

Release Date: 6/19/20 (Friday)
