It all started with...

A need for protection

The Mask Generation development project took shape in 2015 following numerous pollution episodes and air quality alerts. 

Simon, a biker and his offices at La Défense, was directly impacted by this scourge. After a daily exposure exceeding the National and European Recommendations on the subject by up to ten times the recommended threshold (between 25 and 30µg/m3), we made the cruel observation that there were few satisfactory urban protection masks.

Certain that a need in this area was important and would increase over time, Simon decided to embark on an entrepreneurial adventure with this idea that is as innovative as it is useful to everyone.   

Supported by his entourage, he embarked on a long period of R&D (2 years) to develop a new type of Mask that would meet all expectations and those of users.

Soft foams to mold to your face in comfort and fabrics retained for their breathability. We have carefully selected our fabrics to avoid any condensation inside the mask and to offer a light and comfortable mask. All our fabrics have been laboratory tested.

Quality of our products

We made the choice and the bet to make noble raw materials accessible. Handcrafted in our French workshops in the Paris region, our Sirocco range offers a top-of-the-range solution that combines high protection and elegance. 

The materials of the Stratus, also chosen for their efficiency, comfort and aesthetism, make the mask more accessible but just as efficient.

Our approach to CSR is part of our product design by following the product life cycle. We intend to limit and revalorize our "waste". Our transport service providers are also chosen with CSR and low carbon emission in mind. Our partners and suppliers are also certified by several ISO standards guaranteeing compliance with strict requirements.
