VANCOUVER, B.C. June 29, 2020 – Sweet Earth Holdings Corp. (CSE: SE) (FSE: 1KZ1) (“Sweet Earth”) is pleased to announce its newest hand sanitizer product, which can be purchased at New Seasons Market stores in the Pacific Northwest. The CBD Hand Sanitizer Gel is an addition to the Company’s CBD Hand and Body Spray Sanitizer described in its June 8 news release and was also developed at its Ashland, Oregon laboratory and manufacturing facility. The World Health Organization recognizes hand sanitizers to be an effective on-the-go method of cleaning hands and reducing germs, as explained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
New Seasons is a chain of privately owned grocery stores operating in the Portland, Oregon metro area, southwestern Washington, Seattle, and northern California. Sweet Earth’s Hand Sanitizer Gel, containing 70% alcohol, helps purify hands by eliminating bacteria, viruses, and other unwanted germs on skin through an extremely fine and quick-drying mist.

The National Interest has made it clear that alcohol- based sanitizers, like Sweet Earth’s CBD Hand Sanitizer Gel, are superior to non-alcohol-based products for easily spread virus.
Aloe leaf juice is a key ingredient in the sanitizer, which is known for its properties to hydrate, nourish and revitalize skin via natural antitoxins.
The addition of 10 mg of CBD maintains anti-inflammatory properties as it is known to rejuvenate cells and boost cell regeneration.
The Company’s product follows U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines for products deemed suitable for COVID-19 protection.
