5 Hygiene Product Company Success Stories [2022]
Start A Hygiene Product Company

Here are some real life success stories of starting a hygiene product company:

1. The Hygiene Company ($6.25M/year)

Jonathan Bradford (from Billericay, Essex, UK) started The Hygiene Company almost 31 years ago.

Revenue
$521K / month
Team
1 founders / 6 employees

Case Study

My name is Jonathan Bradford and I grew up in a household with a father who built his own successful engineering business (my mother would have always said it was in fact always on the verge of bankruptcy fighting off the bailiffs).

As one that has always been very aware of the importance of CLEAN HANDS, I firmly believed from the outset that this concept had legs, in that if I could provide a nice looking dispenser that looked at home in all environments, hold a good number of antibacterial wipes at a reasonable cost, it had to add value to both the club, office or workspace, for it enhances the overall perception of cleanliness within the organization. It puts hand and surface wipes easily within reach of both staff and members leaving NO room for excuses - convenience improving compliance!

2. SNOW ($60M/year)

Josh Elizetxe (from Scottsdale, Arizona, USA) started SNOW over 5 years ago.

Revenue
$5M / month
Team
1 founders / 25 employees
Location
Scottsdale, Arizona, USA

Case Study

My name is Josh Elizetxe, and I’m from Phoenix, Arizona. I’m the first in my family to graduate from college and I did it at 20 years old. I graduated with a degree in CIS and I did it in two years and graduated with honors, Summa cum laude. I started Snow three years ago because I wanted to provide people with the luxury of whitening their teeth from home. Before the creation of Snow, I used to have an online marketing agency that I started in my teens and it was bought out in my early twenties.

This year we’re expecting to do 2 or 3 times more sales last year’s Q4 so the team and I are stoked to see our hard work come to fruition.

Hi! My name is Chloe Trujillo, and when I was 16 I founded my nonprofit, SustainABLE Start. We’re a 510(c)(3) organization that creates eco-friendly hygiene kits for New Yorkers experiencing homelessness, but the best part is that we’re entirely run by high-school students.

Since March, we’ve provided 9,000 hygiene kits in all 5 boroughs of New York City, totaling over $380,000 in value.
