Gemline has partnered with two leading innovative personal care brands, Soapbox® and Beekman 1802, to offer a range of hand care kits to help keep customers healthy in their homes, workplaces and wherever they travel.
Soapbox was founded in 2010 with a simple mission: to empower people to change the world through everyday, quality purchases. Soapbox promotes one-for-one giving with each of its naturally derived, shea-butter infused products. For every product sold, the company gives back by donating bar soaps or contributing to health and hygiene initiatives in communities, both domestically and abroad. Consumers can track their impact with a Hope Code®, found on all Soapbox product packaging. “We’re proud to partner with Gemline and make our hand/body care products available to a wider audience and grow our mission to bring hygiene essentials and education to those who need it most. During these unprecedented times, it’s critical for all of us to work together to not only meet demand for soap products but also support nonprofits serving communities in need at the same time. We’re all in this together.” said CEO & Co-Founder of Soapbox, David Simnick.
Beekman 1802 is a goat milk skincare company founded in 2008 by a writer and a doctor who took on a farmer and inherited his herd of 100 goats. They believe in clean ingredients and simple science. They are committed to keeping our products clean, safe, and always cruelty-free. Goat milk is the key ingredient in all their formulations, leaving skin clean, nourished and well moisturized. “We started making goat milk soaps and gourmet cheeses in 2008 and one thing led to another. Now we are proud to have over 180 employees and be recognized as one of the most successful lifestyle brands in America by Nasdaq, Inc Magazine & The Wall Street Journal,” said Dr. Brent Ridge & Josh Kilmer-Purcell, Founders of Beekman 1802.
“We felt the timing was right for our business expansion into the Hand Care category, allowing us the opportunity to offer our customers a broad selection of hand care kits to help them stay healthy, especially as they return to work and adapt to a new normal in hand hygiene and health standards,” said Jonathan Isaacson, CEO at Gemline. “Partnering with these trusted personal care brands with strong retail presence enables us to provide quality products, while continuing to build our brand roster.”
