About

Our Goal:

To revolutionize the deodorizing industry by entering the market with a product that has aesthetic, simplicity and effectively deodorizes spaces instead of just masking them.

What is DeoBlock?

Simply put, DeoBlock is a reusable deodorizer in the shape of a block with adjustable air flow. DeoBlock is a one-time purchase. Our refill pods contain plant-based gel integrated with deodorizing technology and essential oils that deplete over 30 days.  Refill pods can then be recycled and replaced. DeoBlock fits in the palm of your hand and can be customized with logos. Our patented design is durable and has a reusable outer shell.

What is a Refill Pod? 

DeoBlock holds a refill pod cartridge which contains what we like to call the "good stuff."

More technically though, each refill pod contains a plant-based gel, infused with our DeoTech Malodor Management technology, mixed with one of our three select essential oil fragrance blends: 

 One refill pod will last for 30 days which can then be completely recycled and replaced.


How We Deodorize

Actually deodorizing a space instead of just masking it with a better fragrance can be tricky. But our plant-based gel formula gets the job done right. We use DeoTech Malodor Management (DMM) technology to successfully and consistently deodorize various bad odors. See how effective DeoBlock deodorizes these specific bad odors below. 

Our Supply Chain Process

DeoTech works with various different companies in the Chicagoland area to make DeoBlock come to life. First, our product manufacturer, who also packages and distributes our product, outsources all parts of DeoBlock. The parts are then delivered here to the states and reviewed by our manufacturer for premium quality. Simultaneously, the refill pod is sent straight to our local gel manufacturing lab to be filled with our deodorizing gel agent.

Our fragrance house provides the essential oil mixture for each refill pod. These oils are then sent to our gel manufacturing lab which mixes the oils with the deodorizing gel agent to create DeoBlock's refill pod. The gel is then filled into DeoBlock's refill pod and sealed so that the gel doesn't deplete until unwrapped by you, the customer. 

The sealed refill pods are sent to our product manufacturer where DeoBlock will be fully packaged and assembled for distribution. We have made this process efficient and logistical so we can supply units quicker to our loyal customers.

Since our manufacturing contacts are local, we are able to closely monitor our whole manufacturing process to ensure premium quality of DeoBlock before it is shipped to the end consumer. The amount of time it will take to construct our mold will be about 60 days. Thereafter, we will be able to start producing our first order of DeoBlocks. Production time on the DeoBlock will be another 60 days.  This includes production, as well as the shipping time here to the United States.

How We're Achieving Our Goal 

DeoTech has been working on a viable deodorizing solution for almost three years. We have overcome hurdles with ideation, product development, outsourcing, distribution and packaging. Fortunately, we have built a strong network in the Chicagoland area which allows for flawless communication and execution. We are ready to start production and hit the market as soon as our campaign is fully funded.

Our target shipping dates are by January 2020, depending on which reward is backed. We are striving to ship earlier and we will do everything we can to make this happen!  We will be following up with all our backers and providing periodic updates.

Keep in mind, we will trade quality for schedule as we are committed to making the best products we possibly can for our customers.

Risks and challenges

Supply Chain:

As you have previously read above in our description, DeoBlock has many destinations before it reaches our customers/backers. However, we have built solid relationships with local companies that are eager and ready to take our product to market with us. We are very confident in our supply chain and are determined to create DeoBlock with the highest and safest quality by our target dates. We promise to be hyper focused on customers satisfaction, product quality, and meeting deadlines.

Logistics:

One challenge we have considered is going above and beyond our funding goal and coping with a large direct-to-customer delivery. If we are fortunate enough to have this challenge, we will do everything in our ability to fulfill orders by our target date.
