Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. announced that its subsidiary, Neptune Health & Wellness Innovation, Inc., has received a Company Number from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for surface disinfectant wipes.
With receipt of the EPA Company Number, Neptune now has the ability to develop new surface disinfectant products for EPA regulatory approval and to distribute existing surface disinfectant products in the U.S. leveraging its white label turnkey product development capabilities.
“This process is an essential step for Neptune to expand beyond hand sanitizing products and into surface disinfectants to support supply shortages driven by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Michael Cammarata, Chief Executive Officer of Neptune Wellness Solutions. “Consumers are seeing empty shelves and some surface wipes will not be restocked in stores until next year. We are mobilizing on the regulatory, product development and supply chain fronts to rapidly bring effective and sustainable surface disinfectant wipes to market to support demand and restock store shelves so consumers can have access to these critical products.”
