Frequently Asked Questions:

Note: Please view our Help Center for the most up-to-date FAQ answers from our team.

When will my order arrive?

Due to high order volume, we are currently experiencing significant shipping delays. We’ve added additional resources to get through the high volume of orders and we appreciate your patience as our team works to fulfill orders. We expect to be processing and shipping new orders within our standard window in the coming weeks.

Are your hand sanitizers effective against COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?
All of our sanitizer products contain a 62% organic verified ethanol alcohol. The CDC recommends using sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to help protect yourself against illness . At this time, we cannot make a claim that our sanitizers are effective against any specific virus such as the Coronoavirus (2019-nCoV), however they are tested and proven effective against 99.9% of germs. For more information on how to protect yourself and loved ones, refer to the CDC Coronavirus prevention-treatment site:

When will I get my preorder delivery?
We are experiencing extremely high volume which is resulting in longer delivery times.  When a preorder is offered, we are generally able to fulfill your preorder within 2-4 weeks.

How do I find out about preorder options?
When a product is available for preorder, we notify all customers who’ve signed up for in-stock updates via our website.  To sign-up, go to the product page, click “sign-up for updates” and enter your email address. Valid on US orders only.

In addition to preorder, can I add more items to my basket that are currently in-stock?
At this time, preorders for hand sanitizer cannot be combined or merged with other products at check-out. Preorders cannot be combined with other offers or promotions.

Please confirm your cart details before checking out. Once they have has been submitted, we are unable to edit or cancel orders in the system.

Why are only some items available for preorder?
We are offering preorder on a few select items based on popularity.  This helps us efficiently manufacture and deliver our hand sanitizer products to the most customers.

What’s the difference between preorder and “signing up for updates”?
• Our preorder option is a new way to ensure you get product as soon as it is available.  We know it is frustrating when a product you’ve been waiting for sells out in minutes. When you check out with a preorder item, we are processing your order payment so that your product is reserved and your order can be fulfilled on a first come, first serve basis.
• Signing up for updates will trigger an email when product is available but it does not guarantee it will be in stock.

Can I buy multiple units for preorder? 
Due to the popularity of our hand sanitizer, we are limited to 1 SKU per transaction.  This ensures as many people as possible can get the hand sanitizer product they need.

How much alcohol is in your deodorant sprays?
We have been fielding questions regarding our deodorant sprays, which also contain ethanol. The amount of alcohol in these products is below the 60% required for a hand sanitizer and therefore they should not be used to prevent the spread of germs and illness. Please refer to the CDC Coronavirus prevention-treatment site:

3/17 Update

Tuesday, March 17th, several counties in Northern California - including the one in which EO Products is located - received a mandatory shelter-in-place order in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Please know that EO Products has been granted an exemption from this order and will continue to operate to keep people safe and healthy during this uncertain time.

With that in mind, we are making several changes to our production to meet the public need. We are:

We know many of you have been waiting on product to come back-in-stock. Please know we are doing everything we can to get orders out the door while also keeping in mind our responsibility to protect the public health at large. While we are making certain operational changes to focus on producing certain priority products, we are committed to continuing to serve you during this time of need.

Thank you for your continued trust and support.
