Is BioLife Sciences (OTCPK: BLFE) An OTC Company Primed For Growth?

BioLife Sciences Inc

BioLife Sciences Inc. (BioLife), a commercialization accelerator, licensor and developer of technologies, has reportedly provided investors with a significant company update throughout the course of a two-year transformation. Over the course of the last two years, BioLife has gone through a number of changes evolving into a revamped corporate entity focused on disrupting various consumer verticals, with a specific focus on health and wellness. Let’s take a look at some of what the company has been up to over the last two years. BioLife Sciences is Born: In June of 2020, the OTC Markets public entity formerly known as Rhino Novi Inc. (RNOV) underwent a reverse merger transaction – changing its name and ticker symbol to BioLife Sciences Inc. (BLFE). While Rhino Novi originally focused on VOIP products, the newly formed BioLife would focus on developing and marketing disruptive technologies to a variety of consumer verticals. Harnessing the Antimicrobial Power of Copper? BioLife has reported it focused on the utilization of the natural antimicrobial power of copper and harnessing its innate benefits into everyday textiles. This dynamic elemental metal has a wide variety of beneficial traits, including being required by all plants and animals as a key mineral and nutrient necessary for survival. In the case of humans specifically, copper reportedly helps to boost red blood cell production, provides support to the immune system, and helps to keep nerve cells healthy. For plants, copper is a fundamental micronutrient that is a critical element of plant enzymes, it is essential for plants’ respiration, plays a key role in plant cell wall strength and contributes to the overall strength of the plant. More recently, copper has been shown to provide antimicrobial efficacy associated with copper alloy touch surfaces. Some hospital studies have shown copper’s effectiveness in lowering E.coli counts on brass doorknobs, as well as SARS-CoV-2, Rhinovirus Type 37, Rotavirus Strain WA, and Human Coronavirus 229E. BioLife says it has focused its attention on incorporating the power of copper into everyday products which are fabric-based and disruptive, in contrast to the market’s current offering. Some of these products in development include copper-infused fabric gardening pots, copper-infused gardening gloves, copper-infused microfiber towels and copper-infused air filters. What is MFusion? The company states that traditional copper-infused products that consumers will find on the market today provide limited-to-partial copper coverage. This means that there could are often gaps in the copper coverage, resulting in less-than-optimal results. BioLife addresses this problem with the introduction of their unique copper infusion process: MFusion. MFusion infuses copper into every sub-bundle of the fabric, providing more complete coverage. When copper is infused into textiles via MFusion, the resulting fabrics benefit from 100% evenly distributed copper coverage. MFusion can be applied to any textile – from t-shirts to air filters – with the result being total copper infusion. The 2022 Acquisition of Health Box LLC – What’s Next? In February of 2022, BioLife completed the acquisition of Health Box LLC – an Arizona-based orthomolecular medicine and natural health products company. By completing this acquisition - and appointing Nika Jaksic, Health Box’s founder, as the new COO, the company believes it has positioned itself to enter the orthomolecular and natural health products space. In order to facilitate the Company’s aggressive expansion plans, the Company filed for a Regulation A+ Tier 1 Offering. The SEC qualified BioLife and the Company is eligible to raise up to $20 million. If successful in its capital raise, BioLife states that they intend to pursue rapid expansion of its existing and contemplated product offerings, audits, and the potential of filling towards uplisting to the OTC Venture Market (OTCQB).

Don’t Give This Company The Brush Off? Brüush Offers Mid-Priced Electric Toothbrush In An Interesting Market

Bruush Oral Care Inc.

While the jury’s still out on whether electric toothbrushes are more effective than manual ones, a number of companies are betting consumers will increasingly adopt them. https://profiles.smallcapsdaily.com/bruush/ The American Dental Association says both manual and electric brushes remove plaque and bacteria from teeth — so long as you’re using a proper brushing technique. More recently, the Journal of the American Dental Association published a survey that found that 13,000 out of 16,000 patients who used an electric toothbrush reported better oral health. The global electric toothbrush market size was estimated to be worth $4.3 billion in 2022 and projected to increase to just over $6 billion by 2027, according to Statista. Some are betting big with high-priced devices, while others are banking on consumers looking for value. And then there are those that fall somewhere in the middle. Koninklijke Philips N.V.’ s (NYSE: PHG) Sonicare line has a variety of options, with the least expensive starting at about $20 and the company’s most advanced electric toothbrush — which gets guidance from an app using artificial intelligence — selling for $380. Joining Philips with a lower-end offering is Quip. Starter kits for Quip’s adult electric toothbrushes start at $20. You get the handle with three-month battery life, a soft-bristle brush head and a cover. Quip will send you a new brush head and free battery every three months for $5. Brushing Off The Competition? Then there’s Brüush (NASDAQ: BRSH), which says it takes the confusion out of deciding what to buy with its $79 electric toothbrush kit. Brüush, which comes in three core colors and the seasonal colors, has six cleaning modes for every type of brusher. The company’s website says Gentle makes smiles clean and bright, while the Tongue mode keeps your mouth smelling fresh. Brüush estimates 70% of its customer base is between ages 18 and 45 years old, a group that’s under-penetrated compared to baby boomers in terms of using an electric toothbrush. This age group also consists of the first digital generations when it comes to shopping and e-commerce brand loyalty to businesses like Apple Inc. (AAPL), perhaps a positive for a company where the website accounts for the majority of sales. If you’re in the market for an electric toothbrush, Brüush says to be sure to buy one that comfortably fits inside your mouth — usually, smaller is better so you can maneuver it to make sure you’re brushing all your teeth. Looking for a brush with soft bristles that are gentle on teeth and gums to avoid irritation is a good idea — a self-timer feature also is recommended to ensure you brush the full two minutes dentists recommend. Toothbrush heads should be replaced every 12 weeks — which makes Brüush’s subscription model that sends customers three new brush heads for $18 every six months a convenient way to stay on top of changing them. By comparison, replacing brush heads for Sonicare products can cost as much as $43 for a three-pack, and the price of the Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE: PG) Oral-B line of replacement brush heads reaches as high as $40 for a three-pack. Visit Brüush’s website to learn more about the company and its products. About Bruush Oral Care Inc. Bruush Oral Care Inc. is on a mission to inspire confidence through brighter smiles and better oral health. Founded in 2018, Brüush is an oral care company that is disrupting the space by reducing the barriers between consumers and access to premium oral care products. The Company is an e-commerce business with a product portfolio that currently consists of a sonic-powered electric toothbrush kit and brush head refills. Brüush has developed a product to make upgrading to an electric brush appealing with three core priorities in mind: (i) a high-quality electric toothbrush at a more affordable price than a comparable electric toothbrush from the competition; (ii) a sleek, countertop-friendly design; and (iii) a convenient brush head refill subscription program that eliminates the frustrating experience of purchasing replacement brush heads at the grocery/drug store. The Company is rooted in building a brand that creates relevant experiences and content, with the goal of becoming the go-to oral care brand for millennials and Generation Z.For more information on Bruush Oral Care Inc visit https://bruush.com.

This Electric Toothbrush Has 6 Cleaning Modes For Reportedly Brighter Smiles

Bruush Oral Care Inc.

https://profiles.smallcapsdaily.com/bruush/ Toothbrushes have come a long way since Babylonians and Egyptians started brushing their teeth with frayed twigs around 3000 BCE. The first more modern toothbrush with a handle carved from cattle bone and a brush made from swine bristles was produced in England around 1780. Natural bristles were used until DuPont de Nemours Inc. (NYSE: DD) invented nylon, which started the development of the truly modern toothbrush in 1938 and the first electric toothbrush in 1939. Although electric toothbrushes date back more than 80 years, they have seemingly not achieved widespread adoption. The global electric toothbrush market size was estimated to be worth $4.3 billion in 2022 and projected to increase to just over $6 billion by 2027, according to Statista. Electric toothbrushes clean teeth, gums and tongue by using rotation or side-by-side movement of the head. Electric toothbrushes are an effective way to remove plaque and reduce gingivitis, and studies show they are more thorough at cleaning teeth than traditional manual toothbrushes. But the moderate adoption rate of the devices arguably demonstrates that consumers need to be educated and provided compelling value propositions to buy them. Cost is a major constraint to the market, and people don’t see them as an attractive addition to their bathroom countertops. Better Brushing? Enter Brüush (NASDAQ: BRSH). While most electric toothbrushes provide 500 strokes per minute, Brüush says its model provides up to 31,000 strokes per minute, attacking plaque 100 times more vigorously than a manual toothbrush. Brüush has six cleaning modes for every type of brusher. The Brüush lithium-ion battery is built to last four weeks on a single charge, and the compact magnetic case makes traveling with the device convenient. The Brüush toothbrush, which comes in five colors with three brush heads and a USB power adapter and charger, retails for $79. And if you sign up for a subscription, Brüush will send you three new brush heads every six months for $18 — that’s just $6 per brush head. Replacing brush heads for Koninklijke Philips N.V.’s (NYSE: PHG) Sonicare can cost as much as $43 for a three-pack, and the price of Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE: PG) Oral-B line of brush heads reaches as high as $40 for a three-pack, depending on the model. Brüush estimates that 70% of its customer base is between ages 18 and 45 years old, a group that’s under-penetrated compared to baby boomers in terms of using an electric toothbrush.

Over the course of the last year, women’s clothing brand, J.Jill, set out to better understand what women want from fashion and the shopping experience. In response, J. Jill is celebrating the launch of Welcome Everybody, a fully inclusive shopping experience online and in stores, that celebrates the totality of women everywhere. Recently, VP of Design at J.Jill, Elliot Staples, and Size Inclusive Style Expert, Rochelle Johnson, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss size inclusivity and the new Welcome Everybody campaign.

Their visual campaigns will be refreshed with a range of models and influencers, such as Rochelle, showcasing a range of sizes and body types to ensure each customer can feel represented in J. Jill campaigns. Women are not just one size fits all, as we know almost 70% of women in the US are size 14 and above. It is important that brands not only understand that but stand behind that and design their product for women of all shapes and sizes. While J.Jill has always catered to this market, they are continuing to evolve and include more inclusive sizing throughout their product offering.

As a mom of two, anything that makes my morning easier such as ultra- premium fabrics that make my outfits feel luxe.
