According to the scientific community as well as the World Health Organization, airborne pollutants can lead to numerous health issues. Livsdal is the first consumer air purifier to effectively capture traffic emissions along with fine particles, molecules and gases making a radical leap forward in effectiveness setting a whole new standard for the premium category.

Air pollution and change in market
Research and knowledge about air pollution is growing and about the dangers of the smaller particles and gases like nitrogen dioxide, ozone and formaldehyde. A shift in demand for air purifiers that can meet the new needs for capturing these ultra fine particles has started to take place.
Air purifiers using ionisation, themselves creating dangerous ozone, can not work in this finer spectrum of particles and emissions.
Livsdal is among the first consumer air purifiers that meet these new needs with high quality Hepa filters and specially targeted activated carbon molecule filters and Livsdal is the first consumer air purifier with the capacity to capture nitrogen dioxide, ozone and formaldehyde over a longer time.
Through livsdal.com the customer can globally today experience, choose, order and pay for the Livsdal air purifier. Chinese customers will be able to buy from their local online platforms JD.com or Tmall – Chinese equivalent to Amazon in the US – from the Livsdal flagship store on the platforms.
