From Wednesday, April 21st to Saturday, April 24th, eOn Sanitizing Mist, hosted a four-day luxury celebrity wellness gifting lounge, presented by GBK Brand Bar and Kailo Pain Patch, in honor of the 2021 Academy Awards. To make this happen, each attendee (who was not already vaccinated) was given a rapid Covid-19 test before entering, a scheduled appointment time, and measures were taken to have the event spaced out in compliance with Covid-19 occupancy guidelines. eOn Sanitizing Mist partnered with Goodwill to donate over 20,000 cans.
The event flowed through different areas of the La Peer Hotel in West Hollywood from the rooftop space to the lobby into the backyard then the James Peter Henry Gallery finalizing the experience at GBK Brand Bar where Yuvika Jewelry gifted the finest of diamonds and jewels.

eOn sanitizing spray, (https://www.eonmist.com), was a standout, which has the softest feel on the hands. EOn 2 fl. oz. Sanitizing Mist Personal Spray is a must-have at all times. Hypochlorous acid (HOCI) is one of the most effective known biocides produced by the human immune system. HOCI is now used in healthcare food safety water treatment and general sanitation worldwide. HOCI’s chlorine-based odor does not linger and rapidly dissipates. eOn Sanitizing Mist is an EPA registered personal protection product which can rapidly neutralize easily transmitted pathogens via HOCI.
