Diaper Dust is the first diaper deodorizing powder that neutralizes odors at the source without covering up with heavy fragrances or perfumes. Diaper Dust is different in that it is not limited to eliminating organic odors but works on inorganic smells as well. Other products like filters or bags made with activated charcoal, are limited in their odor capturing ability because the odor must pass through those surfaces in order to be contained. Diaper Dust is applied directly to the source of the odor, allowing it to tackle it head-on and in the most effective way.
You may have heard about activated charcoal and how it has a longstanding reputation in the health and beauty world. From teeth whitening, to alkaline beverages, to detox capsules -- you'll find activated charcoal at the heart of product efficacy. But what you may not know is that activated charcoal is also used in not-so-trendy household items to control odor in things like cat litter, air filters, garbage bags.
People have looked to activated charcoal to be the answer to the strongest of odors. The smells that intensify and seem to become more and more concentrated as time goes on. The smells that just an open box of baking soda just cannot seem to handle.
So it is no surprise that companies have tried to utilize this magic substance in things to control and contain diaper odor. Diaper pails now have charcoal filter insert slots, there are charcoal sacks you can place at the bottom, there are even bags that "contain charcoal."
The only problem with these options is that none of them maximize the potential of the activated charcoal. They take activated charcoal's odor neutralizing abilities and cut it off at the knees.
Let me explain:
Filters, bags, and sacks limit the contact of gaseous odor and charcoal. The proximity of the charcoal and the malodor is where the magic happens. The more the charcoal can encounter the odor, the better it can trap it.
So why are filters just not doing the job? Answer: They limit the surface area.
Surface area is the key characteristic of activated charcoal powder. When activated charcoal is made into a fine powder, each tiny particle increases the total surface area. One gram of activated charcoal powder has as much surface area as a football field! Therefore, when you start to put these particles together with binding agents and fabric, it reduces the surface area exponentially. Binding the charcoal drastically limits its power to deodorize. It may satisfy the claim to 'help reduce odor' but what good does that do when you want to get rid of the odor altogether? Diaper Dust takes activated charcoal and utilizes it in a never-before-seen way to do just that.
This is where Diaper Dust is different.
We take the odor eliminating properties of powdered charcoal, combine it with a bigger non-binding particle, sodium bicarbonate, place it in a easy-to-use and familiar vessel and make it available to consumers who wouldn't otherwise have access to it. Because it carries a heavy price tag, especially when needing the highest surface area available, activated charcoal is best purchased in bulk. This drastically reduces the cost and allows us to create a product that is consumer-ready.
Other products, such as “Pooph” make claims that it eliminates odor by breaking down the odor at the molecular level. Unfortunately, that can limit the different kinds of odors it can work on. Because it states it’s a proprietary formula, we have no way to truly breaking down how this product works.
We recently had a customer claim to have used Pooph to get rid of the gasoline smell from his work boots:
"A couple of weeks ago. I was filling up my work truck with gas, it was very windy outside. I was standing next to the pump but looked off to the side for just a second. In that time I suddenly felt my leg getting wet. I looked down to find my gas tank overflowing. The automatic shut off did not work, and gas was spilling out onto the ground with the wind blowing it onto my jeans and onto my brand new $200 work boots. I was not happy to say the least. The smell driving home was terrible! I got the smell out of my jeans by airing them outside. But the boots were another problem. I have tried airing them out. And I tried a new spray (Pooph) that I saw advertised. Neither got the smell out. Today I decided to use diaper dust in the hopes that that would work. I liberally sprinkled diaper dust onto the boot (in a box to catch the excess) and instantly the smell was gone. Yes, my boot is black now. But I don't care what my boots look like, they get dirty anyway. That's what they are for. You have my Undying gratitude for creating this product! It serves more than one purpose. "
So when people say "it's just activated charcoal" we know it's more than that and now you do too.
