What is Reviver?
Reviver Wipes eliminate any odor from clothing or hair instantly with just a few swipes. The wipes use state-of-the-art technology that will freshen you from head to toe using odor eliminating ingredients and are viable for 10 uses.
Who are the Reviver Founders?
Founder Ben Kusin came up with the idea while he was the Head of New Media and Strategic Alliances at Vivendi Games, previously having worked as a marketing executive for EA.
His brother Eric, president of the company, also had a background in business as the senior buyer at Neiman Marcus.
Now, Ben Kusin is the “co-founder and co-CEO at VENN, a 24/7 post-cable network aimed at gaming, esports and entertainment audiences” (LinkedIn), while his brother Eric is listed as a partner at MirMir, an event services company, and Malibu Poke restaurant.
The idea for Revive Wipes was born out of the isle of a 7-11 as Ben Kusin searched for something to freshen up with for an important meeting following a cigarette break.
Unable to find any product that would solve his problem, he realized there was a gap in the market – it wasn’t just smokers that had this issue.
He was still pondering the conundrum weeks later, vowing to find a solution for such a commonplace plight.
Reviver Shark Tank Update
Initially, Reviver Wipes were retailing at Walmart and Amazon following their success on the series Shark Tank. Currently, their product is listed as “out of stock” at Walmart stores while the parent company Kusin & Kusin Ltd. had a status changed in 2021 from ‘Active’ to ‘In Existence’.
