Why was ZORBX created?
My wife Debbie Mabrouk RN, BSN, OWNER had worked as a Registered Nurse for well over 15 years. Through out her nursing career taking care of patients, she had encountered many situations where a need for a safer and stronger odor control product that works was necessary. Those situations created a very embarrassing environment for patients, visitors, nurses, and staff. She sincerely and patiently believed that a need for a Safer & Stronger odor remover product that "works!" is a must have to control such embarrassing situations.
After researching the many odor control products used in the health care field combined with the ones available on the market for home use, Debbie and I realized that most of these products are cover-ups or unsafe to use in a hospital environment and our homes. The fact that most of them are perfumed and contain harsh or unsafe chemicals proved her point.
The Sweet Smell of...Nothing!
Our research also proved that if we can develop a “TRUE” odor remover product that “works!” and "suitable for individuals with Allergies, Asthma, and Respiratory problems" it will be a great solution for the health care industry. Therefore, we decided to formulate our own perfume-free odor remover product. Our goal was to meet the following strict conditions:
- Must meet or exceed the health care industry safety regulations.
- Must have safer and advanced odor remover technology that works.
- Must be strong to work on both organic and chemical odors.
I am glad to announce that our ZORBX odor remover formulations have met and exceeded those conditions.
The ZORBX name:
Since our odor control product was formulated to be used in the heath care field, I thought a medical or drug name would be appropriate.
Many drug names start with the letter Z. I am sure you can name a few. I decided to use “ZORB” to absorb and end the name with “X” to exterminate or remove.
It took me only a month and a half to come up with the ZORBX name. Not bad! Our logo and name were designed to offer you safer, stronger, and advanced solutions to your odor control and cleaning problems.
Each time you see the ZORBX name and logo on any of our products, you should expect the quality and performance you deserve.
The challenge / success:
In 2000, ZORBX Unscented Odor Remover product was introduced as a sample to the hospital where Debbie worked.
The feedback on how well ZORBX worked was great. The fact that it was used daily
as a solution to control odors without leaving any scent of its own confirmed the results
we were looking for. Since then the word was spread and more and more hospitals and health care facilities started to use ZORBX.
In the same year, we developed a website and started to sell ZORBX online. Our website did really well and our customers did a great job for spreading the word for us. Although ZORBX was
originally formulated for the health care industry, customers did find many uses for ZORBX at home to solve their odor problems.
We are not a billion dollar company. We are the underdog. We do not have a large advertising budget to compete with the larger corporations. Our success and the reason for our growth are
all contributed to you our great and loyal customers. I want to thank each and every one of you for spreading the word for us.
Your feedback via email and phone calls are the reason for keeping us working hard to provide you with quality and safer cleaning
products you deserve. Keep up the good work and thank you for being the most valuable asset in our company.
