DALLAS, April 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Poo~Pourri, the brand known for its highly effective, original before-you-go toilet spray, announces its entry into antibacterial products with Poo~Pourri Hand Sanitizer. The first shipment of the 2oz spray, made with CDC compliant 65% ethyl alcohol and pure essential oils, is available today on PooPourri.com via a three pack ($14.85) and co-branded bundles. Individual bottles (suggested retail, $4.99) are also offered in store at HEB and Wegmans locations with additional national retail stores including Walgreens, True Value, Kroger and more hitting shelves by mid-April.
We applaud the companies who are going the route of donating supplies to those on the front lines. We also heard the concern and dire need from the general public to access anti-bacterial products for their own safety, which led us to create a multi-pronged strategy that includes both give-back and general public availability. Since late February, Poo~Pourri has worked with vendors and pulled over one million bottles from its planned toilet spray production to accelerate a permanent line extension into antibacterial products, originally planned for Fall 2020.
"We are a brand that can pivot quickly and take on a challenge," says VP of Marketing Nicole Hofmann. "After seeing the drastic need, be it under very unfortunate circumstances, we knew we needed to step in and help – through donations to hospitals and supporting relief funds locally in Dallas and by addressing the consumer and retailer demand for hand sanitizer. This is undeniably something we all need."
Poo~Pourri Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer is made in the USA and kills 99.99% of illness-causing germs with a no rinse, quick drying spray formula of naturally derived ingredients including pure lavender and coconut essential oils to promote calmness and comfort.
Additional product attributes include:
- 65% ethyl alcohol content
- Synthetic fragrance free
- Benzalkonium free
- Triclosan free
- Phthalate free
- EDTA free
- No Animal Testing
A portion of our give-back efforts include donating 10% of all hand sanitizer sales on PooPourri.com to our Texan neighbors through Kids Save Dallas Restaurants. Kids Save Dallas Restaurants provides much-needed support to local restaurants and kids of the Dallas Children's Advocacy Center and Dallas Independent School District. Learn more on the fund here. In addition, Poo~Pourri plans to continue to donate product to essential workers and those on the front lines.
In addition to offering antibacterial hand sanitizer sprays in 2oz spray, Poo~Pourri will introduce a 4oz Hand Sanitizer Spray in May 2020 and Hand Wipes as early as Fall 2020.
As we all work to do our part to flatten the curve it's more important than ever to continue social distancing and practicing better hygiene. Do your doody. Sanitize your hands.
