The Oxygene® Story

In 1984, Oxyfresh developed Oxygene, an exclusive pharmaceutical ingredient that attacks and neutralizes odors-causing germs and bacteria at their source through a powerful oxidation process. Because it was unlike anything else in the marketplace, Oxyfresh knew the possibilities for this breakthrough ingredient were enormous.

Oxygene lived up to its potential. It wasn’t long before the popularity of products formulated with Oxygene soared as people everywhere discovered just how effective the solution was in wiping out even the toughest odors.

Oxyfresh quickly discovered the incredible odor-fighting power of this signature solution had a much broader appeal and could be used in a wide variety of its pet products.

How Oxygene Works?

A pure, stabilized form of chlorine dioxide, Oxygene safely neutralizes the sulfur bonds in cellular by-products, which are responsible for odors (bad breath, for example). By neutralizing the sulfur compound, the smelly sulfur bond is broken, eliminating odors.


Safe, effective and gentle, stabilized chlorine dioxide does not create harmful by-products. It oxidizes compounds. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends stabilized chlorine dioxide as a safer alternative to chlorine in drinking water.

The concentration of Oxygene in Oxyfresh products ranges from 500 parts per million to 1,000 parts per million, but don’t let the trace amount mislead you. Oxygene is extremely effective in lower concentrations and provides optimum deodorizing benefits at those levels.

Since this breakthrough ingredient was first formulated in the early 1980s, Oxygene has been key in the development of Oxyfresh’s premium products.

Oxygene Promotes Healthy, Happy Pets

The same non-toxic and purification qualities of Oxygene that eliminate microorganisms and odors in the mouth also make Oxyfresh’s proprietary formula effective in oral additives for pets. Veterinarians across North America use and recommend Oxyfresh pet products with Oxygene, calling them the most effective remedy available to fight “dog breath.”

Oxygene helps control bacteria around the teeth and gum line of pets, thus improving the animal’s breath and slowing the progression of periodontal disease, which can lead to life-threatening conditions. Left untreated, periodontal disease can allow bacteria to enter the bloodstream and possibly infect the heart, liver, and kidneys, shortening your pet’s life unnecessarily by up to five years.

By slowing the progression of periodontal disease, regular use of Oxygene can actually help your pet live a longer, healthier life. Not to mention the up-close, fresh breath you and your pet will enjoy.

Oxyfresh’s Pet Ear Cleaner, Pet Deodorizer and Pet Shampoo are also formulated with Oxygene for maximum odor-fighting protection.
