ScentLok Canada - Education

Odours surround us on a daily basis; some that are so overpowering it is difficult to even be in the same room as them, and others that are unrecognizable to the human nose. We interact with so many different odours during the course of just one day that it is impossible to have a singular answer for them all. Over the past 25+ years, we have evolved into odour-control experts, developing products and technologies that provide a solution to controlling odour, both in and out of the field. Our complete odour management (C.O.M.) system details how odours originate and what options are available to combat them. C.O.M. leads directly into our ScentLok Seven, a comprehensive, step-by-step guide that helps drastically minimize your odour signature and preserve your odour controlling products.

WHERE DO ODOURS COME FROM?

THE THREE PILLARS OF ODOUR


BACTERIAL

Odours produced as a byproduct of the bacteria metabolizing the nutrients they receive from your body & sweat in order to sustain life.


METABOLIC

Odours produced as a result of the substances you ingest. Garlic, spicy foods, and alcohol can all cause your body to produce metabolic odours.


AMBIENT

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?

THE FIVE CONTROL METHODS


CONTAINMENT

Trapping odours in confined areas prevents them from being recognized


PREVENTATIVE

Antimicrobials like silver prohibit the growth of microorganisms


SORPTION

Carbon adsorbs odour molecules similar


DESTRUCTION

Ozone based technologies


MASKING

Cover scents & sprays can mask recognizable odours
