BioLargo Subsidiary Clyra Medical Technologies Joins Forces With Powerplay Retail to Ensure Broad Availability of Revolutionary Product to Safeguard Against Airborne Viruses
WESTMINSTER, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 14, 2020 / Just in time for Amazon Prime Day, BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), developer of sustainable life science technologies, today announced that Clyraguard, the personal disinfectant and germicidal spray that safely and easily decontaminates masks and face coverings, is now available at the Clyra Medical Store on Amazon.com. Clyraguard is manufactured by BioLargo's subsidiary Clyra Medical Technologies, a med-tech company with deep experience fighting hospital-acquired infections with innovative technologies.
In addition, Clyra Medical announced 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 United States.
BioLargo President & CEO Dennis Calvert commented, 'We have assembled an exceptional team to execute a multi-phase roll out plan for Clyraguard. This Amazon launch, in partnership with Powerplay Retail, is another important step toward maximizing consumer access to this valuable product.'
'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, Clyra Medical Technologies. '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 (COVID-19), 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 Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Clyraguard is a hospital-grade, FDA-registered disinfectant that is specifically indicated for PPE, like masks and face coverings.
'At Powerplay our goal is to help our retail partners find the right brands and the right technologies while weeding out the noise in this increasingly competitive marketspace,' said Tracy Thie, Principal, Co-Founder Powerplay Retail. '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.'
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 oz. spray bottle, 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 TSA hand sanitizer exemptions. Clyraguard is now available to consumers online at www.clyramedical.com, the Clyra Medical Store on Amazon.com, and soon to be available at retailers nationwide.
