CVS Pharmacy has once again demonstrated its commitment to inclusivity and diversity with the introduction of the Universal Tools collection under its exclusive beauty and personal care brand, one+other. The collection was first introduced on International Self-Care Day, the Universal Tools collection is an expansion of the one+other assortment, which was introduced in January earlier this year. The one+other brand was created with the mission of democratizing access to self-care products, allowing consumers to practice self-care in their own way at an accessible price point.
In fact, in a recent survey of 100 people with mobility or dexterity challenges conducted by Gauge on behalf of CVS Health®, 62% said using nail clippers and tweezers poses a challenge. Designed by lived experience in collaboration with members of the disability community, the Universal Tools collection features six universally comfortable to use self-care tools, such as Rounded Tip Scissors, Nail Nipper + Catcher, Slant Tweezer, Half Jaw Cuticle Nipper, Nail Clipper + Catcher, and Pumice Stone.
The tools include inclusive features such as wide, open handles and non-slip, easy-to-grip silicone patterns that are uniquely textured to distinguish from other tools, making self-care more accessible to people with certain disabilities. The Universal Tools collection is a significant step towards creating more inclusivity in the self-care aisle in retail stores. It was developed with the disability community in mind, addressing the everyday challenges faced by individuals with mobility or dexterity issues.
“We know that it’s not enough to just stand for inclusivity and diversity – it needs to be seen through the products and services we are providing,” said Andrea Harrison, Vice President of Merchandising for Beauty & Personal Care, CVS Health. “The introduction of the Universal Tools collection ladders back to our continued efforts to make self-care solutions more inclusive for all of our consumers.”
Available both online and in-store at CVS locations nationwide, the Universal Tools collection joins the brand’s existing assortment of over 200 self-care staples. This collection is not just a product line; it’s a reflection of CVS Pharmacy’s ongoing efforts to make self-care solutions more inclusive for all consumers. It not only addresses the need for more representation but also ensures that self-care is accessible and convenient for everyone, regardless of their physical abilities.
