The Oxy-Gen system's greatest innovation is the way it overcomes several key shortcomings in current air freshening products
At least 90% of air fresheners used in commercial or institutional premises are aerosol, pump spray or gel systems. Only around 10% of today's market use fuel cell technology with Oxy-Gen being the ONLY gas cell system. The growing demand for this type of technology stems from environmental concerns about VOCs(Volatile organic compounds), CFCs(chlorofluorocarbons), harmful propellants and battery disposal. Oxy-Gen air freshness refills have low VOCs, contain no harmful propellants and contain only pure fragrance oil. VIVA!e refills have an added environmental benefit because they are fully recyclable, with the power cell being housed in the dispenser, rather than the refill.
The system is designed to work continuously to give a consistent ambient fragrance, so once the cartridge has been activated when it is fitted into the holder, it will start to emanate fragance which will continue throughout the life of the cartridge.
The VIVA!e system offers 2 fragrance intensity settings based on cartridge life. If the system is set on 30-days, the fragrance will be stronger than if it is set on 60-days. With all Oxy-Gen air fresheners, the cartridge use pure full-concentration fragrance oils that have been carefully tested and selected because they are sufficiently intense to permeate a room and create a noticeably fresh, scented atmosphere. Sometimes alternating fragrances at cartridge replacement time can make the scent more noticeable, as frequent exposure to the same fragrance can result in the fragrance becoming less noticeable through familiarity.
The dispenser is supplied separately to the cartridge. Each dispenser is supplied with 1 key and wall mounting fixing screws and wall plugs. They are packed in boxes of 6 individual units. The cartridges are supplied fully assembled and ready to insert into the holder. They are packed in boxes of 6 cartridges per box.
A great deal of development has gone into the cellular filter which is where the fragrance emanates into the atmosphere. Many of the other wick-based products have a tendency to either dry out or become saturated. The system used in Oxy-Gen Powered cartridges diffuses the fragrance gradually while keeping its structure intact.
