Moisturised skin and more lustrous hair

An image of a woman smiling in a mirror

nanoe™ X combines with natural sebum to coat the skin, leading to smooth, well-hydrated skin.22-23 Also, the abundant moisture found in nanoe™ X hydrates the hair, contributing to straighter, sleeker hair.24

Pesticide residue reduction

An image of fresh, moist-looking vegetables

nanoe™ X dispersed throughout the refrigerator breaks down pesticide residue. A water rinse after storage in a refrigerator equipped with nanoe™ X removes more pesticide residue than a water rinse alone.

How nanoe™ X works

nanoe™ X hydroxyl radicals break down pesticide particles so residues can be easily washed away.

Pesticide atoms have a strong bond that repels water.

Pesticide atoms have a strong bond that repels water.
