How did Cambridge Mask Co beginand where are we at now?

Our Founder and CEO

Christopher J. Dobbing

“I founded the company because I was working in China and I saw a lot of young kids get sick from air pollution. They were growing up kind of thinking the sky should be coloured in grey in pictures and coughing all day was normal. I felt no child should believe that as a normal experience. So I developed a mask that can help protect children and adults from air pollution.”

“I believe everyone should be able to get out and enjoy life, without having to worry about bad air or the way they look. That’s why we have developed a high-function, high-fashion mask that gives you the best chance of [respiratory] health.”

MORE ABOUT OUR FOUNDER & CEO STORIES

A quest for breathing in better air

After researching academic publications, health studies, news sources and historical pollution data, our Founder and CEO, Christopher began to realise the scale of the pollution issue in China and other big cities in the world. This was a problem that was claiming the lives of literally millions of people around the world every year.

A curiosity turned into a passion, which morphed into an obsession – a quest for breathing in better air.

Therefore, all 14 components that make up the mask have been carefully sourced, with quality at the forefront of every product development decision.

We produce masks that protect everyone

While the inception of Cambridge Mask was largely related to air pollution in developing countries, we also cater to many of those with chronic illness, such as Cystic Fibrosis or even organ donor recipients with vulnerable immune systems. People all over the world are affected by chronic illness and compromised immune systems, making them more susceptible to bacteria and viruses.

Being able to help people all over the world is what keeps our team focused, happy, and fulfilled in the work we do today.
