The Good Patch Launches Limited-Edition Collection with The Art of Elysium

The Good Patch

The Good Patch announced today that they've launched a limited-edition patch collection, designed by artist Tasya van Ree, in support of nonprofit The Art of Elysium, which serves communities in need based upon the core belief that art heals. The Good Patch was created with one simple idea in mind: when the people around you feel good, life is more beautiful. Their wearable wellness patches go on when you need them and off when you don’t– offering complete control of your wellness. Whether you need to look alive, find your zen, or clock in some beauty sleep, The Good Patch has you covered. For over twenty-five years, The Art of Elysium has paired volunteer artists with communities in Los Angeles to support individuals in the midst of difficult emotional life challenges like illness, hospitalization, displacement, confinement, and/or crisis. They serve medically fragile children, teens, adults, seniors, those dealing with social, emotional and mental health issues, and the homeless. “The Art of Elysium’s mission to heal communities through the power of art really speaks to us here at The Good Patch. As a brand, our core belief is ‘when you feel good, life is more beautiful’ — so there are some real synergies. We are humbled to be able to support such a meaningful organization, as well as one of their volunteer artists, Tasya van Ree. The designs Tasya created for this unique collaboration remind us to appreciate the beauty each day has to offer. In this chaotic world we all live in, finding the beauty in art is one small (or big) way we can take a moment for ourselves to recharge, heal, and find inspiration,” said The Good Patch CEO Cedar Carter. The packaging of this limited-edition version of the brand’s best-selling B12 Awake Patch features a beautiful sun motif. Inside, the four patches feature a colorful variety of sun-inspired designs. The collection is available at TheGoodPatch.com beginning September 12th and on Amazon later in September. A limited time only bonus pack will also be available later this month, exclusively at Target stores. The bonus pack includes four original B12 Awake patches plus one free van Ree designed bonus patch, available while supplies last. "The SUN represents everything significant. It enriches and restores our time here in every way possible. It nurtures the body with the energetic flow of life force and has precise qualities to rejuvenate the mind, bringing light and importance to one’s daily life,” said artist van Ree on the inspiration behind the design. “At The Art of Elysium, our mission is to use art to heal, and empower artists and communities of need to join together, to emotionally triumph over their circumstances through art. The mission of The Good Patch is aligned in that they are also all about helping people feel good, one patch at a time. We are honored to have one of our artists, Tasya van Ree, design this limited-edition patch to unite both of our visions of improving the overall wellness and well-being of individuals in our community,” said The Art of Elysium Founder Jennifer Howell. In celebration of the collaboration, The Good Patch will be sponsoring an intimate fundraising dinner for The Art of Elysium in Los Angeles on September 23rd with music, keynote speakers, and celebrity guests (TBA). For more information, please visit TheGoodPatch.com and TheArtofElysium.org or @ TheGoodPatch and @TheArtofElysium on social media platforms. About The Good Patch: The Good Patch, which first emerged on the market in 2018, was founded by longtime friends Betsy Scanlan, Kelly Brock, and David Nicholson. David and Kelly, owners of award-winning spas, and Betsy, an accomplished advocate in the hemp industry, all met for coffee one morning to talk beauty, wellness, and the power of plant-based ingredients. Combining each of their past expertise in the wellness industry, The Good Patch was born. Today, the brand is pioneering new approach to personal care at the intersection of beauty and wellness. The brand’s wearable patches address a variety of common daily struggles, such as B12 Awake (for the afternoon slump), Dream (for getting your beauty sleep), and Relax (for unwinding and decompressing), among other plant-powered varieties. They use tried-and-true ingredients that are 3rd party quality tested. Simply peel, stick, and remove when you are done. Since 2018, The Good Patch has been steadily growing. From its humble roots selling in spas and independent retailers, the wearable wellness patch company has grown to be sold in over 12,000 retail locations. The brand currently has 16 patches on the market, with more on the way.

Twang Expands to 3,500 Walmart Locations

Twang Partners LLC

Twang, a purveyor of Mexican-inspired food- and beverage-enhancing products, is excited to announce the expansion of its retail presence in 3,500 Walmart locations across the United States with its signature lemon and lime beer salts. This expansion into more Walmart stores is significant to the San Antonio-based brand’s growing national presence. Twang has already made its way onto grocery, liquor, and convenience store shelves throughout many parts of the country, with heavy emphasis in the Southwest. This expansion makes Twang beer salt easier to find in all states, including some that might not be yet familiar with the product and the beer salt ritual. The expansion is timely as existing and potential future consumers celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month alongside the founding Treviño family, who made their way to San Antonio six generations ago. Twang is excited to share this long-standing Mexican tradition with the rest of the country, as the salts go best with Mexican beers and domestic lagers. Twang Beer Salts have made “dressing your beer” a common practice throughout the Lone Star State. Although people in Mexico already add salt and lime to beers, Twang is the originator of “citrus-flavored” beer salts. The salts are sprinkled onto the neck of beer bottles, the rim of beer glasses, and the tops of cans, thus enhancing the beer-drinking experience by adding a tangy, savory twist to each sip. Twang’s Beer Salts are composed of only five naturally derived ingredients, making them a clean addition to your bar cart. Are you new to dressing your beer? It's easy; learn how to do it here. Each beer salt bottle shaker retails between $1.99-$2.49. To learn more about Twang, visit the website here. In 1986, Twang Founder Roger Treviño Sr. left his career after experiencing an epiphany while on a business trip in Mexico. Visiting a Mexican street vendor selling citrus salt, he was reminded of his childhood in San Antonio, with its abundance of Latino flavors. He returned home inspired to create a variety of flavored salts to share with friends and family. Launching the Twang business out of his family garage and together with the Treviño children to help, his first product (and claim to fame) was Twang Beer Salt, an integral product in the Southern trend of “dressing” beers and other libations. From these humble beginnings, the Treviños have since expanded Twang product lines into flavored salt for food, cocktail rimmer blends, michelada mix, and more to come!
