FIVE (that's right FIVE) NEW searches have launched with Apothecary Products!!!

magurn's Avataren_staff_badge

We've just launched FIVE NEW innovation searches with Apothecary Products!

Innovation is at the core of Apothecary's business, and they take pride in developing products that solve consumer needs, having secured over 70 patents to date. They are a worldwide partner with the majority of US retailers (food, drug, mass, club), independent pharmacies and drug wholesales. They have an international presence in over 80 countries.

Not to mention the fact that we've already run SIX searches with them resulting in EIGHT licensing deals. THREE of those deals are currently active with ONE product slated to launch in January!

The team at Apothecary has been a fantastic partner and they're ready to roll with their next round of searches to grow their existing Ezy Dose brand as well as expand the brand into Ezy Dose Kids and Ezy Dose Self-Care!


Here are links to the landing pages for each search!

Apothecary Products is searching for Simple Sensory Wellness innovations for their new Ezy Dose Self-Care brand.

Apothecary Products is searching for Acute Self-Care and First-Aid innovations for their new Ezy Dose Self-Care brand.

Apothecary Products is searching for Mobility and Agility innovations for their new Ezy Dose Self-Care brand.

Apothecary Products is searching for Inner Health and Sensory Solutions for Families within their new Ezy Dose Kids brand.

Apothecary Products is searching for Simple Inner Health Solutions for their Ezy Dose brand.


Please review the criteria for each search carefully and remember, the Apothecary team is looking for all types of products in each category.

Happy Inventing!!!

I have some ideas simmering on the back burner for this one.  This is a great company to have looking at any innovations you may come up with.  I love the excitement of a new search.  For me there is an ebb and flow in my ability to innovate.  I am always coming up with new ideas though they mostly aren't winners, but sometimes you just feel like you are in a groove. Right now I am feeling on the up side.

Robert Leonard - this is the one to really push yourself on. My G8 is from a previous Apothecary search and I can't express how great they are to work with (via EN) once you get a licensing deal. They are selective, yes (even after you get a G8), but it's because they are extremely serious about developing innovative new products to sell throughout their extensive distribution networks.

As I mentioned in another thread, the purchase of Aetna by CVS in a ~$69 Billion deal could be very good news for Apothecary Products, which has massive (almost 10,000 doors) distribution into CVS stores, which in turn will probably soon have easy access to 22 million Aetna customers:

At the risk of completely taking over this thread with my posts, I just had to mention that I received a *spectacular* update from EN this morning regarding my invention previously licensed to Apothecary Products. Oh how I wish I could share all the details with my community here and now, but it's not quite time yet. That time will come soon and I'm really looking forward to sharing my Edison Nation+Apothecary Products inventing journey with everyone!

Congratulations Robert on the news. I can't wait to see it on the shelves, and you are not hijacking this thread. You are just letting us know that Apothecary is a good company that is ready for innovation. Thanks

Robert, you asked a great question in the Inventors Lounge; in reference to submitting my latest tech to Apothecary through EN.

There are a few factors that take this instance beyond my typical think it and submit it method.

I would prefer to defer to the professional opine of our community monitors:

'

Michelle and/or Kristina,

What does the EN standard operating procedure dictate for a product submission which contains the following characteristics:

Previously submitted to EN, is non provisional patent pending, is currently being crowdfunded, and currently has orders.

That's a lot to consider, but Apothecary is a great company, and I approve of their branding and marketing.

Hi Jacob!

You're certainly welcome to submit this idea for consideration by Apothecary - they are looking for products similar to yours. I would just do two things before submitting:

1. Ensure you are comfortable with the standard terms and conditions of our agreement given how far along you are in the process.

2. If you do submit, include all details about sales, crowdfunding efforts and more within your submission.

Hope this helps and best of luck!

Excellent Kathy - congrats on getting one in! I missed your post back a while ago - been busy with family and of course with *inventing*. 

I haven't submitted yet but my accomplishment for this search so far is that I've whittled my ideas for Apothecary down to the 19 best (from a much larger number) and hope to whittle those 19 down further to the very best 3 (or so). I've been working with prototypes for a few of these for many months now so hopefully it will all start to coalesce soon and I can finally distill them down into submissions. That's the hard part for me - to stop iterating and tinkering and "freeze" these invention adventures into submittable form!
