BioLargo Inc (OTCQB:BLGO) subsidiary Clyra Medical Technologies has announced that Clyraguard, a personal disinfectant and germicidal spray that can safely and easily decontaminate masks and face coverings, is now available on Amazon.com just in time for Amazon Prime Day.
In addition, BioLargo said that Clyra Medical is in a partnership with Powerplay Retail, an agency and distributor that has helped launch some of the best-known consumer products in the world, to roll-out Clyraguard to major retailers nationwide.
Powerplay Retail brings to bear relationships with some of the world's biggest online and in-store retailers, including more than 80 of the largest, most recognizable retailers in the US.
"As we continue to battle this unprecedented pandemic, Clyraguard provides an embedded layer of iodine on one's mask or face covering for additional protection against unwanted pathogens, including the SARS-CoV-2 virus, without having to remove your mask," said Steve Harrison, CEO of Clyra Medical, in a statement Tuesday.
"Until now, this hospital-grade disinfectant was available only to healthcare professionals. Making Clyraguard available on Amazon.com, as well as partnering with Powerplay Retail, ensures we can deliver a much-needed solution to consumers nationwide."
Clyraguard has shown complete inactivation of SARS-CoV-2, according to recent testing at University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, and is based on Clyra Medical's original advanced wound care technology, which received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration.
"As health and safety have become a core part of our daily lives, we have made it a point to help support our retail partners to bring the right health & wellness products to the masses. Our partnership with Clyra creates a great opportunity to bring Clyraguard to market at a time when people want and need this product," said Tracy Thie, principal and co-founder of Powerplay Retail.
Clyraguard has been rigorously tested and proven to be safe and long-lasting, providing an extremely high 99.999% antimicrobial efficacy against viruses, bacteria and fungi. Gentle and safe, its eco-friendly ingredients are mineral-based, alcohol-free, non-toxic, non-irritating, and non-sensitizing.
Available in 4-ounce (oz) spray bottles, the personal protection spray is small enough for a purse or pocket yet contains two months of supply with typical usage, and for travelers, Clyraguard classifies under current Transportation Security Administration (TSA) hand sanitizer exemptions.
