Prime Star Group's Health Channel, Inc. Introduces Alcohol Based Sanitizer

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - December 16, 2009) - Prime Star Group, Inc. (OTCBB: PSGI) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Health Channel, Inc., a health and wellness company has received pre-orders for its alcohol based hand sanitizer and will begin production in the beginning of the first quarter of 2010. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are tremendously effective in preventing the spread of the seasonal flu, H1N1, colds and other viral- and bacterial-based diseases; and sales in the segment are through the roof. The differentiator between the Health Channel product and others in the market is its trademark environmentally friendly 'green' packaging, its six hour effectiveness time period and its low cost.

Alcohol-based hand sanitizers kill most types of bacteria, viruses and fungi in a few seconds. While rubbing your hands with sanitizer for 15 seconds is ideal, poor hand-sanitizer use still beats poor hand washing. The consumer has embraced the product segment so much so that, from a public health standpoint, although proper hand washing is technically superior than alcohol gels most of the time, hand-sanitizer mania will likely be a more effective means to reduce disease transmission. Studies have shown how hand sanitizers reduce gastrointestinal illnesses in households and curb absentee rates in schools and workplaces.

Larry Ynfante, President of Health Channel, Inc., stated, "We are excited to be able to have this product in production and delivery scheduled in time for the cold and flu season. Health Channel understands that our clients certainly have choices when it comes to this type of product and we are extremely pleased that our quality and green packaging were drivers in their selecting our product line. We expect to have additional announcements regarding our continued sales efforts in the very near future. Our product is easy to carry, friendly for the environment and a wonderful product for the health conscious consumer with an on-the-go lifestyle."
