- Our Story
We’re Wes LaPorte and Dan Barnes, and we invented PhoneSoap.
Our Phones Were Filthy
A few years ago, we watched a shocking report on TV that claimed our cell phones were contaminated with fecal matter. We wanted to find out if the report we heard was true, so we headed into the lab to test our phones for ourselves. Our results proved the average phone is 18 times dirtier than a public bathroom.
Making the First PhoneSoap
We wanted to develop a safe way to sanitize our phones, but it couldn’t add to our busy routines or take away our screen time. We knew that labs and hospitals use UV-C light to sanitize, so we launched a Kickstarter campaign to put that same power inside the first PhoneSoap.
Shark Tank & Beyond
We knew we had a great product, and other people agreed. After appearing on NBC’s Shark Tank, co-host Lori Greiner invested in us, and we’ve sold more than 100,000 PhoneSoap units. We’ve continued to grow and add to our product line, but we're still run by a lean, dedicated team. Everything we do is still focused on using technology to make our lives healthier.
