- Jupiter licenses exclusive worldwide rights for unique formulas addressing jellyfish and man o' war stings, sea lice, and swimmer's itch with 4 patents-pending
- Estimated 150 million people are stung by jellyfish globally each year
JUPITER, FL / ACCESSWIRE / April 5, 2022 / Jupiter Wellness, Inc. (NASDAQ:JUPW) today announced the launch of NoStingz, the Company's proprietary line of sunscreen designed to protect against jellyfish and man o' war stings, sea lice, and swimmer's itch all while continuing to protect ocean lovers' skin from UVA/UVB in a range of SPFs. Jupiter has signed a license agreement with Shark Defense Technologies for the exclusive worldwide intellectual property rights to formulas and production methods for jellyfish protective compounds including 4 patents pending. The agreement includes future collaboration to develop and refine additional formulas.
According to Fortune Business Insights, the global sun care market was worth $13 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach $17 billion by 2027. In its report, Jellyfish Gone Wild!, the U.S. National Science Foundation estimates that 150 million people are stung by jellyfish each year, with about 200,000 these occurring in Florida, and many scientists believe the number of jellyfish is increasing. Jellyfish stings can vary in severity from immediate pain, swelling, itching, and tentacle print marks, to more systemic reactions such as difficulty breathing and heart problems that may be life threatening, according to the Mayo Clinic. Portuguese man ‘o war tentacles which can extend up to 100 feet contain microscopic capsules loaded with barbed tubes that deliver venom which causes pain and welts on exposed skin, the U.S. National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration reports.
Jupiter's NoStingz line includes sprays and lotions for children and adults with SPFs ranging from 30 to 50, with more SKUs to be added in the near future. Each product's dermatologically tested, hypoallergenic, scientifically proven, waterproof formula prevents stings from most jellyfish and sea lice, gives sunray and UV protection and is packaged in a biodegradable bottle that is non-toxic for the marine environment.
"We see a significant market for jellyfish protective sunscreen and believe NoStingz has the potential to become the dominant brand in its category. Through this exclusive licensing agreement with Shark Defense Technologies, we intend to continue development of additional formulations for an expanded product line. NoStingz complements and will benefit from our current CaniSun distribution platforms," stated Jupiter CEO Brian John. "The large number of Portuguese man ‘o war washing up on South Florida beaches as a result of winds and tides underscores the need for NoStingz."
