HOW DOES OZONE DEODORIZE?
The deodorizing effects of ozone begin when an ozone molecule (O3) first comes into contact with the cell wall of the bacteria. Take note that the cell wall is important to the bacteria as it maintains its shape. When the ozone molecules come in contact with the cell wall a single oxygen molecule attaches to the bacteria and a reaction known as oxidative burst punctures the cell wall. This puncture injures the bacterium and it begins to lose its shape and the cell dies, collapsing on itself. ¬†The remainder of this reaction is an O2 atom, simply oxygen.
ODOR ELIMINATION, NOT JUST PREVENTION!
The nature of the ozone formula in Ozone Layer deodorant is that it is effective even after one’s armpits already stink. ¬†Contrary to all other deodorants which are purely preventative odor protection, Ozone Layer can be applied after an odor is already present to destroy the odor causing bacteria.
