Hi Micky, thanks for your question. Yes, oxygen could have a positive impact. The only problem is that it needs to be supplied in the deeper skin layers, at the hair root, in the sweat glands. Not easy to supply it there. We have seen that many malodor-associated bacteria are facultative or obligate anaerobic bacteria. So providing more oxygen will decrease their abundance. Best, Chris
