Essential Air is a start-up from Costa Rica.


We started this project in 2016, searching for the best way of sharing with every person who doesn’t have access to clean air, an opportunity to experience the best of Costa Rica from wherever they are in the world.

According to the World Health Organization, 80% of the city residents around the world breathe air that exceed the WHO’s recommended levels of pollution, and urban air pollution it’s considered as the greatest environmental risk to health today.


While there’s no substitute for an unlimited supply of clean air, we saw this scenario as an opportunity to break the status quo of what someone should expect from a breath of clean air.


Knowing that people expect more, not only from the consumption standpoint, but from the customer experience as well, we spend the last two years developing every aspect of our brand and finding the best way to create deeper connections to better serve our customers.

We are extremely proud of the product we’re presenting you today. Our hope is that this product will help you regain your energy daily with the best thing Costa Rica has to offer: its clean and natural environment.
