WHERE DO ODOURS COME FROM?
THE THREE PILLARS OF ODOUR
Odours produced as a byproduct of the bacteria metabolizing the nutrients they receive from your body & sweat in order to sustain life.
Odours produced as a result of the substances you ingest. Garlic, spicy foods, and alcohol can all cause your body to produce metabolic odours.
Odours that surround us throughout everyday encounters such as fast food, gas, and smoke. These odours attach themselves to us unannounced.
HOW CAN WE COMBAT ODOURS?

Carbon adsorbs odour molecules similar
Ozone based technologies
