Aqueous Ozone Safety
Aqueous Ozone Versus Ozone Gas
Ozone Does Good for People and Planet
Aqueous ozone has the same potent reactivity as gaseous ozone and has the advantage of the controlled application. Aqueous ozone is targeted directly at surfaces that need cleaning or sanitizing through a controlled stream of water. It is used commercially and by individuals as a cleaner, deodorizer, sanitizer, and preservative in a variety of contexts.
Like Many Other Substances, Ozone is Safe in the Right Context
Safety of Aqueous Ozone
There are two reasons to trust the safety of aqueous ozone. First, ozone is present at such small concentrations (only a few parts per million at maximal strength) that it cannot possibly react with enough human or animal cells to substantially affect them. The human body has trillions of cells, which means that an army of human cells protects us from any substantial reaction with low-concentration aqueous ozone. Secondly, aqueous ozone is an effective antimicrobial agent only because it kills bacteria, viruses, and other unicellular or structurally simple organisms that can be affected by a chemical reaction to a single cell.
Enozo products create safe and effective aqueous ozone on-demand using a patented Active Diamond Electrolytic Process Technology™ (ADEPT™) technology. With ADEPT technology, Enozo concentrates the ozone it generates into the water stream that will be used directly as an antimicrobial solution, versus technologies that rely on making a high concentration of ozone gas or that transfer gaseous ozone to water by using tanks, injectors or bubblers.
