Our Story

After falling asleep on an airplane tray table, our CEO, Henry, woke up with a terrible rash on his face. After finding out startling facts and pursuing extensive research, Henry teamed up with a group of peers, and together the team did research to discover possible solutions to the proliferation of germs on travel hotspots. Soon thereafter, Germ Genie Products, LLC was born.

Germ Genie is a student owned company, run by rising seniors from the ages of 16-17 from NSU University School in Davie, Florida.
