Ovation Ships First Order of DermSafe by Air to China to Help Combat the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Vancouver, British Columbia – (February 27, 2020) – Ovation Science Inc. (CSE: OVAT) (“Ovation” or the “Company”), announces it has shipped the first order of its DermSafe® hand sanitizer lotion to China. This follows the recent announcement on February 13th of receiving the order and full payment for 25,000 units of DermSafe. The recent spread of the coronavirus in China and globally has fueled the demand for this product. DermSafe is made with chlorhexidine gluconate; an ingredient used worldwide in hospitals and dental offices as it has a proven ability to kill both bacteria and viruses. DermSafe binds to the skin and resists wash-off and rub-off for up to four hours.
“This shipment marks the Company’s first foray into the non-cannabis personal care market as well as our first international sale. Based on the number of requests we have had, today’s shipment is just the beginning of the demand we have for DermSafe,” said Terry Howlett, President of Ovation. “We are expecting additional orders shortly as today’s shipment pertains to our first client in China and we are in discussions with other companies in China and S. Korea.”
“DermSafe is a very unique product, one that really does not compare to anything in the market. It took scientists over six years to develop the product. We have proven that DermSafe can offer protection for people concerned about spreading all kinds of germs from person to person and so we are glad that we can do our part to help combat the spread of the coronavirus virus as well as the flu virus,” said Doreen McMorran, COO of Ovation. ““Independent research conducted at a major virology lab in the UK confirms that DermSafe has both an immediate kill as well as a long term kill of up to 4 hours on envelope viruses tested including H5N1 (bird flu), H1N1 (swine flu) and H3N2 (influenza virus). Although we have not tested against the Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) it is also an envelope virus.”
The WHO (World Health Organization) “Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Situation Report -37”, as of February 26, 2020 reports there were 81,109 confirmed cases of people with the Coronavirus; that is up 80% from when we first reported these figures on February 12th. The virus has also spread to 37 countries, bringing the WHO Global Risk Assessment to “HIGH”.
