Sisters to be exact – who, inspired by the negative stigma of medical and supplemental oxygen in our world, wanted to make the world a healthier place to live and breathe. After years of research on the benefits of supplemental oxygen, the Chicago-born, Minnesota-dwelling duo became committed to the mission of educating others and making a tangible difference by creating recreational oxygen products that – unbeknownst to them – would one day lead the new product category. “Before the creation of Oxygen Plus, many people would associate oxygen with uncomfortable, awkward, and embarrassing cannulas for sick people,” states Christine Warren, Founder and President of Oxygen Plus. “I envisioned the creation of an oxygen product that was sleek, portable, easy to use, and consumer-friendly. Additional inspiration for creating O+ comes from my belief that everybody deserves the right – and access – to breathe well. In 2003, Christine – a former marriage and family therapist – gathered “a room full of geniuses” together who were the first to believe and proclaim that recreational oxygen canisters could be the next bottled water. In that same year, Oxygen Plus, Inc. (O+) was formed and registered in the State of Minnesota. In 2005, its first product the O+ Elevate Pack – was launched, winning the best new product award at the International Spa (ISPA) Convention & Expo in Las Vegas. Ever since, the vision of O+ has remained to be the company leading the development, manufacturing and marketing of portable recreational oxygen for wellness-minded persons worldwide.
