Ozone has well-documented capabilities to mitigate odors and has been used in industry for this purpose for over 100 years. While an oxygen molecule (O2) is relatively stable, ozone (O3) is quite unstable and seeks to return to its more stable state, O2. The third oxygen atom readily reacts with other compounds, including human odor, creating different compounds when this occurs. Animals may detect these new compounds, but they do not view them as associated with “humans” or “predators”.
Ozonics’ patent-protected technology has shown that ozone can mitigate airborne odors at lower levels than previously understood and that ozone can dramatically impact human odor IF and when the two come into contact.
