The Moso Bag is a non-toxic, eco-friendly, fragrance free, extremely effective air purifier that absorbs odors, bacteria, harmful pollutants and allergens. It also dehumidifies, which helps prevent excess moisture, mold and mildew. Made of 100% Moso bamboo charcoal, the Moso Bag is a natural alternative to standard air fresheners, many of which contain toxic and/or carcinogenic chemicals such as formaldehyde, petrochemicals and p-dichlorobenzene.
Many air fresheners on the market, which people purchase to “clean” their air, are loaded with toxic and/or carcinogenic chemicals such as formaldehyde, petrochemicals, p-dichlorobenzene and aerosol pollutants. In contrast, bamboo charcoal is an air purifier, pulling toxins out of the air and making it safer for us to breathe.
The Bamboo Moso bamboo is a species of giant timber bamboo native to China that grows to 55 feet and up. Moso Natural gets theirs from a farm in China’s Fujian Province.
The process of converting the bamboo into bamboo charcoal begins with cutting down the bamboo (it then grows back). The cut bamboo is dried for a few weeks, then treated in a kiln at 750°C for two weeks to create the charcoal.
As it cooks, the charcoal develops millions of tiny, porous holes. It is through these holes (one gram of bamboo charcoal has as much as one thousand square meters of surface area) that the charcoal absorbs impurities in the air such as chemicals and allergens.

Moso Natural Story
How did the Moso Bag come to be? The Moso Bag was developed as a solution to a couple of problems. Moso Natural knew there was a need for an effective and convenient air purifier for cars and they set out to develop one, not knowing much about the world of air purifiers and air fresheners. They learned a lot, very quickly—much of it having to do with the cocktail of toxic chemicals present in most air fresheners. As a result of their growing knowledge and newfound familiarity with the names of many chemicals, several of which are carcinogenic, they quickly changed course
They realized they were dealing with not one problem, but two: the desire to neutralize bad smells and the fact that the way in which many products accomplish this is harmful. So they decided to create a highly functional air purifier that was completely safe for people and the environment. Moso Natural is proud to report that they have done just that.
They searched the U.S. and abroad, looking for healthy options. They found Moso bamboo charcoal in China, where they call it “black diamond.” This product seemed perfect: eco-friendly, sustainable, affordable, and so safe that in parts of Asia people use it not only to purify their air but for water purification and they ingest it to help detoxify the body.
They conducted research and testing and found that bamboo charcoal works incredibly well to remove odors, bacteria, harmful pollutants and allergens from the air. On top of that, it is a natural dehumidifier, helping to prevent mold, mildew and excess moisture.
They introduced the Moso Bag to the American market in August 2010 at the New York International Gift Fair, with considerable success. Since then, they’ve created additional products and have helped rid the world of unpleasant odors, one bad smell at a time.
