Elyptol, Inc. announces it has won the New Hope Network's NEXTY Award for Best New Natural Living Product at Natural Products Expo East in Santa Monica. Elyptol's Antimicrobial Hand Gel Sanitizer was one of 50 finalists selected by a national panel of natural products industry experts from more than 365 entries across 20 awards categories, such as Best New Mission-Based Product, Best New Organic Food or Best New Natural Living Product.
"The award validates the real need for a natural hand sanitizer that is strong enough to kill germs, yet at the same time, be gentle and moisturizing on the skin – and a hand sanitizer that is approved and certified for use in Healthcare facilities," said Tim O'Connor, president and CEO. "We are very excited to receive this award from New Hope and believe that not only does this endorse the effort Elyptol has put into the product set, but also demonstrates that a new era in hand sanitizers is needed."
"The NEXTY Awards represent the future of the natural products industry where sustainability and transparency are the norm," says Jessie Shafer, content director at New Hope Network and one of the NEXTY judges. "Our industry can have a huge influence on how big manufacturers and mainstream buyers think about consumer packaged goods. The winners of our NEXTY awards inspire change and integrity in everything from ingredients to packaging."
Elyptol has carried out rigorous development and testing and the hand sanitizing products are registered with the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). The ingredients are non-toxic, do not have any nasty substances and the specially sourced bio-degradable packaging make it kind to the earth and gentle to use. Elyptol's natural formulation with eucalyptus oil is an effective and powerful hand sanitizer that kills bacteria, fungi and viruses that can cause disease. Elyptol minimizes the likelihood of allergic reactions or contact dermatitis and is formulated to both sanitize and moisturize. Elyptol is a member of the World Health Organization (WHO)'s collaborative hand hygiene program, Private Organizations for Patient Safety (POPS).
