Masks are now an essential part of our daily lives that we’re sure you’re looking for better alternatives. What would you say to a more high-tech mask? LG Philippines is giving you the option with the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier*, which was first introduced last year to the international market.
This self-purifying mask is your personal all-in solution for clean air. It’ll make you look like you’re in a Star Wars movie, but its bulky exterior has a purpose.
It has replaceable HEPA filters on both sides, which promises to filter out up to 99% of harmful particles, and rechargeable dual inverter fans, which are designed to help you breathe. The fans have different speed options depending on what you need. You can charge this device via USB-C, with a two-hour charge getting you up to eight hours of use.
If you’re worried about wearing masks with valves, the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is designed to pass the exhaled air first through its inner cover before it’s released through the valve at the chin. The mask has an inner cover made with the same material used in disposable masks. It’s also designed to mold closely to your face, so you don’t have to worry about the fit.
This is what you get with this device:
- 1 pc. LG Puricare Mask
- 1 pc. Faceguard and Face Guard Frame
- 2 pc. Puricare Filters
- 10 pc. Inner Cover
- 1 pc. Strap Extender
- 1 pc. Charging Cable

- Owner’s Manual and Warranty Information
The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier retails for PHP 8,699. LG will be offering a UVnano charging case for this mask in the future for PHP 6,999. It is pretty pricey, so it’s definitely not for everyone.
LG also introduced its new line of air conditioners with UVnano technology. This tech uses ultraviolet light to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria. The new aircons use ultraviolet light to sterilize the fan to prevent 99.99% of germs from adhering to its surface so that the air blown through the unit is purer, safer, and fresher. Pricing starts at PHP 53,999.
Both the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier and the new air conditioners are available on Lazada, Shopee, and authorized dealers nationwide.
