MedZone Launches All-New Brand PlusZone Committed to Serving the Plus-Size Community

Leading sports medicine company expands with new brand devoted to offering the plus-size community a line of products to prevent skin irritations

LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Aug 8, 2017) - MedZone, a leading sports medicine company, announces today its expansion and launch of its latest brand, PlusZone, which is committed to serving the plus-size community. At the center of the brand is ChafeZone for Chub Rub, a popular stick roll-on product that prevents friction from inner thighs or underarms rubbing against each other, a phenomenon often known as chub rub. Additionally, the PlusZone line offers products targeting a range of other skin irritations, including minor blisters, scrapes, burns, itch relief and muscle soreness.

"The plus-size community has shown overwhelming support for our products and we are proud to launch a brand devoted to serving their needs," says CEO of MedZone Joe Freeman. "This decision follows the success of our sports medicine products in helping athletic enthusiasts overcome skin irritations and the realization that consumers outside the sports space are in need of similar solutions too. We're excited to broaden our reach to help new consumers and feel that PlusZone is an exciting milestone on this journey."

MedZone's launch of the PlusZone brand compliments the company's rapid growth, having developed a presence across industries such as golf, dance and martial arts, through partnerships and new distribution opportunities earlier this year. The PlusZone launch completes yet another major milestone for the company and allows them to tap into such a deserving niche market. The company's success has also caught the eye of major national retailers, which will offer the products this fall.

One of PlusZone's best-selling products, ChafeZone for Chub Rub, acts as a skin lubricant by adding a protective layer to sensitive areas of the skin that are prone to chafing. ChafeZone for Chub Rub's easy to apply stick replaces previous less effective methods, and can be easily taken on-the-go and applied as needed. ChafeZone for Chub Rub is available in an 0.8 oz. size for $8.99 and a 1.5 oz. size for $12.99. In addition to ChafeZone for Chub Rub, PlusZone offers travel-sized bottles of its other skin care solutions in one convenient Activity PAK for $24.95.
