MedZone's Face Balm peaked Walmart's interest at this years first-ever virtual Open Call.
More than 175 Small Businesses Find Opportunity at Walmart’s First-Ever Virtual Open Call for U.S. Manufactured Products
Out of the 4,800 small and medium-sized businesses that applied for this years Walmart Open Call, MedZone was chosen out of the select 175 to continue forward. The businesses chosen will have the opportunity to be featured in Walmart Marketplace, Samsclub.com and Walmart.com. Walmart's President and CEO Doug McMillon stated, "We want to help small business owners weather the current situation and take care of their employees, so that after this pandemic, they and the communities they serve can thrive." After a very successful Open Call, many businesses are eager to get their products on the shelves.
Supplying 265 million customers worldwide with affordable prices, Walmart is a leader in the retail industry. "In January 2013, Walmart announced commitment to help boost job creation and U.S. manufacturing through buying an additional $250 billion in products supporting American jobs by 2023." Walmart is helping people globally to "save money and live better."
MedZone has been supplying customers with an array of products since 2001. One of their best sellers has always been their anti-chafe stick ChafeZone. When the panemic hit, some of their customers reached out asking if they could use ChafeZone on their faces to combat the irritation from wearing a face mask. MedZone said yes, but they knew they could do better; as a result, Face Balm was born. Face Balm is the first all-natural anti-chafe stick to help with irritation and "maskne" while wearing a mask. MedZone is grateful to be a part of helping people during this turbulent time.
