In 2003, during the SARS global outbreak, Angelo Mantenuto Founder and President of Stix Brands was very aware that the vast amount of germs and viruses being spread in public places was a serious health and social issue. What was equally frightening was the fact that Hand Hygiene education was practically non-existent in Schools and the workplace. The dangers of germs being spread from touching dirty surfaces, going to the Bathroom, then eating food and shaking hands with people, etc. without washing their hands first this became a primary contributor to the problem.
After the SARS and H1N1 outbreak, Angelo's passion became his purpose, and he started to think about how he could make a difference. In 2004, further to co-founding a hand Sanitizer company called Clean Freak Patrol, Angelo's continued experience and market research led him to firmly believe that using a sanitizer was not the perfect solution.
"How could people prevent the spread of germs?" The simple answer, is that hand washing with soap and water, is the #1 way of eliminating germs.
In 2010, Angelo introduced SoapStix, a unique all-natural hand soap spray for people on-the-go! Allowing everyone to own a portable soap spray, having to never touch a contaminated public soap dispenser a simple idea that could change the way people think about protecting themselves.
Realizing how harmful these toxins can be to our health, Angelo began to focus on manufacturing the best and safest hand and body soap. After months of research, he created an ingredient formula made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil that was tested on many people with great results, helping improve their poor skin conditions.
