DENVER (PRWEB) June 11, 2020 -- Powerizer Complete, the all-in-one plant, and mineral-based home detergent and cleaner from Powerizer LLC in Centennial, CO, has earned Leaping Bunny certification. It cleans and removes all residue from your laundry, dishes, kitchen, bathroom, carpet, and every surface of your whole house, inside and out. From start to finish, the Leaping Bunny certification guarantees that no new animal testing be used in any phase of our product development, our laboratories or ingredient suppliers.

To be approved for inclusion in the Leaping Bunny Program, companies producing cosmetic, personal care, and household products must make a voluntary pledge to remove animal testing from all stages of product development. The company's ingredient suppliers and manufacturers make the same pledge, and the result is a product guaranteed to be 100 percent free of new animal testing. “We are proud to say that we have achieved Leaping Bunny Certification,” says Marsha Acosta, CEO of Powerizer. “We want our customers to know that every ingredient that goes into our product is guaranteed cruelty-free. We aim to create an effective cleaning supply that benefits not only the people using it but the environment as well.”

Considered the gold standard for cruelty-free certification, The Leaping Bunny Program is the only cruelty-free certification program consumers can truly trust. Because there are no regulations limiting the animal testing claims that companies can make, the only way to know if a company has eliminated animal testing from its product line is to seek out information from third-party certification programs. The Leaping Bunny Logo has consistently been given high marks by consumer, environmental, and lifestyle magazines as a seal that lives up to its promise.

“We are excited to award our Leaping Bunny certification to Powerizer Complete. Achieving and maintaining the certification is a huge commitment for their brand. Not only must they ensure that every ingredient is cruelty-free, but they have agreed to recommit to our program annually and be open to an audit for assessment of their supply chain management,” says Kim Paschen, Program Manager for Leaping Bunny. “Powerizer is proof that cleaning companies can develop innovative products without toxins, harsh chemicals or additives and protect animals and the environment in the process. Customers can feel great knowing that they are supporting a brand that creates effective cleaning products and are committed to being cruelty-free.”

Powerizer Complete was developed by the same innovative team behind OxiClean, Kaboom, and other natural products. The founder, Max Appel, initially became interested in sustainable products when he experienced the toxic smell of professional cleaning products in public bathrooms. He vowed to create an effective product that was safe for humans, animals, and the environment.

Color-change technology creates “wow” moments for consumers,
but it also drives social media engagement for brands
 
Press Release (Merit Media Relations, LLC)

Specialty inks that are popular among consumers for driving interest on packaging for beer, soda and candy are now feasible for fountain cups as a result of Chromatic Technologies’ invention of solvent-specialty inks.
Colorado Springs company, CTI invented a new suite of color-change technologies using solvent inks, including thermochromic (temperature-activated), photochromic (sunlight-activated), glow-in-the-dark and reveal technology (wherein CTI’s magic reveals a message after product consumption).  Previously, solvent-ink printers were forced to use water-based inks that slowed down manufacturing operations.  The new solvent-specialty inks eliminate the operational hurdles of water-based inks.



CTI’s consumer research has found that the color-change technology is a tool for brands to drive content on their social media platforms.   When brands do a great job of creating “wow” experiences on their packaging, consumers turn and share that story with their friends on social media.   This quickly results in increased sales as friends try the new technology and share their experiences.

“Consumers have their phone in their right hand and a Starbucks, Coke or Coors Light in their left hand,” explained Patrick Edson, former vice-president of consumer insights for Coors Brewing Company and, since 2012, the chief marketing officer for CTI.  “In brand mapping exercises, we call this challenge ‘getting the right hand to talk to the left hand.’  If you can create an experience or start a story with your product in the consumer’s left hand; they in turn will share that experience on their phone in the right hand.

“Brands realize that the color-change technology is more than just creating an experience on a cup, it’s a new form of content for digital marketing,” Edson added.
Lyle Small, founder of CTI, weighs in: “Color-change technology is now affordable for cup printers and they offer a tremendous innovation tool for printers to help drive new margin for their customers in quick-serve restaurants and convenience stores.”

For over a decade, brands such as Coors Light have used thermochromic inks to turn their mountains blue to deliver on the promise of Rocky Mountain Cold Refreshment.   Coca-Cola ensured a cold promise for 7-Eleven consumers with its “Ice Cube” 16-oz. can.  Cheetos used photochromic technology in Mexico for their “Where’s Chester?” promotion on chip bags.   Oreo supported the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with Glow-in-the-Dark packaging.
Owing to the considerable growth of CTI, the company now offers in-house design services to help cup printers and brand owners develop concepts that can be quickly tested with consumers.
About Chromatic Technologies Inc.

CTI is the world’s largest manufacturer of specialty inks that are REACH, EuPia, ISO9000:2015 compliant and offers third-party validated, safety migration testing. CTI, founded in 1993, exports to 55 countries where its ink technology is found on many of the world’s most recognizable brands in the consumer marketplace. www.ctiinks.com
