The Value of Nitrous Oxide
While it may sound like some manufactured chemical, nitrous oxide is naturally present in the atmosphere as part of the Earth’s nitrogen cycle. It was first discovered by the English chemist Joseph Priestley in 1772 and quickly became known for its anesthetic effects. You may have heard of it as “laughing gas.”
Similar to oxygen, nitrous oxide is dissolved and absorbed in the liquid portion of our pet relief gel. A portion of the visible micro-bubbles also contains this gas.
In our formulation, nitrous oxide assists molecular oxygen in relaxing muscles and relieving pain and irritation.
Best of all, O2 Derm™ PET is safe and non-toxic, free of dyes and irritating fragrances. It can be used on the small and the large, soothing the sore muscles of your equine friends and the dry, itchy skin of the youngest puppy.
