“Iron absorbs oxygen when it rust.”
“Prevent oxidation by eliminating oxygen.”

Just by implementing a combination of such simple ideas, Mitsubishi Gas Chemical was able to develop AGELESS™ the world’s first free-oxygen absorbing agent.

The free-oxygen absorbing agent, AGELESS™, absorbs oxygen in a sealed container and creates a deoxidized environment, where the concentration of oxygen is 0.1% or lower. This way, it is possible to preserve foods by eliminating the ill effects of oxygen.

The free-oxygen absorbing agent AGELESS™ preserves both the taste and freshness of food.
This outstanding feature of AGELESS™ also expands its application to pharmaceutical products, clothing, and cosmetics. AGELESS™ is also used widely to ward off mold as well as mites from clothing and bedding.
