Our Story

The saying “great ideas and products are born out of need or challenges” rings true for Stellarcleenz; our AHA moment came about in just this way. About a year ago our Founder got very ill from a bacterial infection that was traced back to an evening at a popular restaurant. Although not conclusive, the findings indicated germs were picked up from the table, the plate rim, or condiment bottles, not food poisoning. Post recovering, she shortly thereafter was checking out at a chain drugstore in town where she encountered another concerning event. The cashier – who was at least thoughtful enough to turn away when he sneezed – returned and said, “I can’t believe I’m getting the flu so early”. He then proceeded to grab the neck of her water bottle and put it in her bag. Being a believer in natural and safe wellness innovations, she was somewhat familiar with the anti-microbial benefits of silver. As someone fortunate to be very healthy, her restaurant ailment and the drug store episode heightened and prioritized her further investigation into silver’s anti-bacterial attributes. It was out of this pursuit and close to a year of scientific study and development, that Stellarcleenz was born.

More about Stellarcleenz -- our benefits and features

Silver, a precious metal, is a naturally occurring element and contains no added artificial chemicals. Stellarcleenz are carefully made using an ionic technology in a bath process where 99.99% pure silver is plated to a very thin fiber; it will not wash out. Stellarcleenz have been laboratory tested for over 10,000 wipes and more than 500 washes under scientific protocols without reduction in the silver’s anti-microbial effects. Care of them is easy and washing is optional.

Closing Note

It’s important to be aware that skin is the largest organ of absorption in the body. Many of us care about what we eat, but often pay little or no attention to what we touch or put on our skin.

And the list goes on – gas station pumps, casinos (especially chips, cards, slot levers), stadium, museum and public wash room handles, gym equipment, yoga mats, lockers, cruise ships, escalators in malls and airports, school desks and auditoriums, movie theatres…). We imagine you have many others on your list as well.

We’re not germaphobes at Stellarcleenz. That said, as we have become more aware of, and some of us personally impacted by, the ever expanding life of pesky and harmful germs and viruses, we were inspired to create a natural, safe and effective product alternative to chemically based options and share Stellarcleenz  with you and the world. We hope you enjoy them – and use yours often and everywhere!
