What is Ozone

Ozone (O3) is a reactive gas composed of three Oxygen Atoms. It is produced naturally by sunlight and lightning. It  reacts quickly with organic and ammonia compounds that are easily Oxidized, such as sweat, urine, bacteria, viruses, lotion, oil.

Ozone has been used as a sanitizer, all over the world, for nearly 100 years. It is created by exposing oxygen molecules to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or by an electric charge from lightning.

  • One of the safest and strongest oxidizing agents know to man.
  • Ozone breaks down and reverts back to its natural state – Oxygen (O2).
