EMERYVILLE, Calif. (July 15, 2022) – NovaBay® Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE American: NBY), a pharmaceutical company developing and commercializing high-quality, scientifically formulated eyecare and skincare products, announces record sales of Avenova-branded products during Amazon’s Prime Day event (July 12-13). Sales of Avenova-branded products during the two-day event increased 27% over Prime Days 2021 and 48% over Prime Days 2020, and reached a new one-day all-time high since the product became available on Amazon.com in June 2019.
“We’re excited to break sales records during this year’s Prime Day event. We believe consumers are feeling the financial pinch from inflation and are seeking bargains on the products they routinely purchase and use,” said Justin Hall, NovaBay CEO. “The exceptionally strong reception to Avenova during this year’s Prime Days together with our loyal customer base give us even greater confidence for continued growth through the important Amazon.com sales channel. Because dry eye is a chronic problem, we have many lifetime customers.”
In addition to NovaBay’s flagship eyecare product Avenova Lid & Lash Spray, discounts during Prime Days were available on Avenova Lubricant Eye Drops and Avenova Moist Heating Eye Compress Mask. In a first for Prime Days, NovaBay offered Avenova-branded product bundles with three different bundles available to support eye care for sufferers of bacterial dry eye.
