Odor Elimination via Molecular Modification Enhances Quality of Life for All Ages

The industry has long been searching for the answer to true odor control within its products that is efficacious, aesthetically appealing, and effective for the duration of the product's life (i.e. pre-use, in-use, and post-use). Rem Brand's patented ODOGard® technology quickly and permanently eliminates odors by bonding to odor molecules without the need for any fragrance or masking agents. The proprietary technology delivers superior and measurable results and is safe around people and pets. Recent success has shown significant odor reduction in three major areas; materials of construction, during the use of the product and after use with regard to a platform of absorbent products for both people and pets. The efficacy of the patented ODOGard® technology gives confidence to users of such products and their family and friends that odor will not get in the way of their quality of life. This presentation will discuss the unique chemistry, specific results and the use of ODOGard® odor elimination technology across several product categories and markets.
