A new aerosol hand sanitiser has been launched by California, US-based Starco Brands. Through its consumer brand Breathe®, the organisation has filed a patent and commercialised the spray technology with a 75% alcohol solution.
The product is a continuous-spray clean aerosol hand sanitiser utilising compressed air and nitrogen as a propellant, which comprises "approximately 80% of the air we breathe", according to the firm. Continuous spray technology enables the user to sanitise more people faster and more efficiently, with zero human-to-human contact. The company believes individuals, households, hospitals, health care facilities, airports, transportation terminals, hotels and other institutions can all benefit from the technology.
The new product is currently being launched nationwide in the US at Dollar General, at around 15,000 stores. It will also be available to purchase online. Starco Brands then plans to roll out the product line to other national and online retailers in its distribution network and is donating some products to first responders on the front line.
Ross Sklar, CEO of Starco Brands, said: "This incredible technology comes at a time where innovative hand sanitising solutions are desperately needed. This cutting edge tool allows humanity to be more active and efficient in hand sanitising by being able to spray faster while covering larger areas with less human contact."
Starco Brands is known for launching the Breathe household aerosol cleaning line, which, according to the company, are the first aerosols ever recognised as the US Environmental Protection Agency's Safer Choice Partner of the Year.
David Wright, a shareholder in Starco Brands and CEO of online marketing and distribution firm Pattern, said: "We are one of the top online resellers globally and are thrilled to partner with Starco Brands at this critical time. Providing this new hand sanitiser spray to our domestic and international customers is a core competency for us and we look forward to supporting this landmark product launch."
