Vancouver, B.C. – October 6, 2020: Better Plant Sciences Inc. (CSE: PLNT) (OTCQB: VEGGF) (FSE: YG3) (“Better Plant”) or (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Amazon.com has approved the listing for its hand sanitizer gel, which is manufactured by its subsidiary, Urban Juve. The hand sanitizer gel is listed with the FDA (NDC 75385-0010-1) and has received Natural Health Product Number 80098154 from Health Canada. Urban Juve’s Ultra Hydrating Hand Sanitizer Spray received Health Canada approval on March 27, 2020. The Hand Sanitizer Gel will be live on Amazon.com later this month. Both the Hand Sanitizer Gel and Spray are available for purchase on Amazon.ca and urbanjuve.com.
“The popularity of Amazon is undeniable”, says Gabe Villablanca, Better Plant’s Director of eCommerce. “During these times, it is becoming more and more simple and stress-free to shop online, so we want to expand that accessibility across the top platforms.” Earlier this year, Urban Juve’s full line went live on Amazon.ca, offering free shipping on orders over $35. Due to high demand, Urban Juve ensured the Hand Sanitizer Gel was the first product to be pushed through the approval process for Amazon.com. The Company plans to continue to use data to guide where they will make products available online for the convenience of consumers.
Based on a survey of more than 2,000 U.S. customers, 89 percent of buyers agree that they’re more likely to buy products from Amazon than other eCommerce sites (Feedvisor, 2019).
