Houston— Engineer and entrepreneur Devon Fanfair has proudly launched his sanitizing product, Just Wipes to help consumers “Live Life Clean.” A serial entrepreneur, Fanfair is also the co-founder of the Venture Capital & Private Equity firm, Devland and has a decade’s worth of experience in technology and startups. His lifelong passion for problem solving informed the creation of this go-with-you product that prioritizes safety and skincare.
Sold in affordable, pocket-sized packs of 10 wipes and made from two simple ingredients, Just Wipes is perfect for anyone looking to take care of their health this winter. Consisting of 70 percent isopropyl alcohol, Just Wipes contain more sanitizing alcohol than leading brands, while protecting from dryness with skin-saving aloe.
Fanfair was inspired to take action following a less-than-clean experience. In 2019, he flew to Silicon Valley to interview with tech companies and was confronted with a dirty red-eye flight that made him question how clean traveling really is. Arriving home after this experience, Fanfair became fixated on solving a problem: how to ensure on-the-go sanitization that works wherever you are. After learning the facts about germs on planes and researching the competition, Fanfair developed Just Wipes’ signature, go-with-you travel packs to help everyone stay safe without comprising their busy lives.
“Just Wipes is a product that fits into our lifestyles, not something we fit our lifestyles into,” said Fanfair.
Fanfair was delighted to share his journey developing Just Wipes with his five-year-old daughter, Sage. As a dad, he hopes to be a positive role model for his daughter by showing her how to think freely and creatively, innovating and solving problems. Wanting to ensure that she could see herself in the entrepreneurial space, he established his company with women of color working in the majority of leadership roles.
While some view diversity as an obstacle to success in business, Fanfair believes it leads to creative solutions to systemic challenges, allowing Just Wipes to grow despite starting out with limited resources. “The thing that kept us out of the game is what gave us strength and resilience not to give up,” said Fanfair. Just Wipes sanitizing pocket packs can be purchased at www.justwipes.com and in-person at select H-E-B locations.
