Ovation Science Receives Additional Order for DermSafe Hand Sanitizer from Large Medical Distributor in Mexico
Vancouver, BC – January 26, 2021 (CSE: OVAT and OTC: OVATF) – Ovation Science Inc. (“Ovation” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has received a further order for its DermSafe® hand sanitizer lotion from its distributor, Grupo Venta International, S.A. de C.V. (“Grupo Venta”), with corporate offices in Guadalajara, Mexico. They have been successfully selling DermSafe personal use sized bottles through-out Mexico and this new order represents a request for a new larger 944 ml. (32 oz.) DermSafe bottle for use by hospitals, large businesses and schools. As the recommended application is 1 ml per use, this larger size will have over 940 applications.
Grupo Venta provides Ovation with the ability to expand its sales of DermSafe hand sanitizer through their robust distribution network. Grupo Venta supplies surgical equipment, supplies, cosmetic and wellness products through-out Mexico. Their forty-six sales representatives target doctors across the country including over 3,000 dermatologists, 1,900 surgeons and other medical specialists and hospitals. Grupo Venta also utilizes a B2B and B2C strategy which focuses on bringing post-surgical and dermatology products to be sold in doctors’ offices as well as retail and on their online portal called “Top Care Store”. Additionally, Grupo Venta has a retail and online strategy for wellness products marketed by department stores, pharmacies and through various other online marketplaces in Mexico.
“We are very pleased with the success Grupo Venta has had selling DermSafe through their medical and consumer distribution channels,” said Terry Howlett, President of Ovation. “Since DermSafe is made without alcohol and has the added benefit of our proprietary polymer delivery system Invisicare®, it really is a game changer in the industry. The increased hand-washing and use of alcohol has caused many issues for doctors and other medical professionals that constantly wash and reapply.” He added, “Grupo Venta understands the need for a pharmaceutical-grade hand sanitizer like DermSafe and has the distribution network to make it available to the medical industry and consumers in Mexico.”
DermSafe is a pharmaceutical-grade hand sanitizer lotion that uses chlorhexidine gluconate; an ingredient used worldwide in hospital soaps as it has a proven ability to kill gram negative and gram-positive bacteria as well as the envelope viruses. COVID-19 is an envelope virus. DermSafe has been developed with patented Invisicare® technology, which helps hands stay protected and as it contains no alcohol; it does not dry-out your hands. DermSafe is a recipient of the Canadian Dermatology Review Panel’s “Seal of Approval”.
According to www.statista.com, in Mexico, revenue in the Hand Sanitizer segment is projected to reach US$133.59m in 2021. The market is expected to grow annually by 10.0% (CAGR 2021-2025). There are over 1.5 million cases of COVID-19 in Mexico and currently five states are designated “red”; allowing only essential activities. Ovation is pleased that it can give people access to DermSafe to help keep them stay safe during these incredibly tough times.
