CINCINNATI, Aug. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, CR Brands announced the launch of ARM & HAMMER™ Essentials™ Disinfecting Wipes. The products will be available at major retailers in the United States.
ARM & HAMMER™ Essentials™ Disinfecting Wipes feature a citrus-based disinfectant formula that kills 99.9 percent of viruses & bacteria and cleans without harsh chemicals. Because the active ingredient is citrus-based and they contain no quaternary ammonium chloride compounds like other leading brands, ARM & HAMMER™ Essentials™ Disinfecting Wipes are worry-free to use on a range of household surfaces.
"We are thrilled to bring this product to market under the iconic ARM & HAMMER™ brand," said Tim Harrison, Chief Executive Officer of CR Brands. Added Harrison, "ARM & HAMMER™ is a brand with national recognition and has been trusted by consumers for more than 170 years. It's the perfect brand for consumers who are looking for affordable, effective products that are strong enough to clean and disinfect, but can also be used around kids and pets."
The demand for disinfecting wipes has skyrocketed since the onset of COVID-19. Both CR Brands and ARM & HAMMER™ have seen dramatic increases in demand for their cleaning and laundry products. ARM & HAMMER™ Essentials™ Disinfecting Wipes meet the EPA's criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Brandgenuity, the brand licensing agency for ARM & HAMMER™, brokered the partnership between Church & Dwight, Inc. and CR Brands.
"CR Brands is a tremendous strategic partner," said Tammy Talerico, Licensing Director at Church & Dwight. "The leadership team at CR Brands all have extensive CPG backgrounds and deep category expertise which has helped them to create a product that is truly unique within the category. We fully expect this partnership to grow in the coming years."
In addition to disinfecting wipes, CR Brands has launched a licensed fruit & vegetable wash and garbage disposal cleaner under the ARM & HAMMER™ brand name.
