The Halo franchise is turning 20 years old this November 15th, and as part of its anniversary celebrations, video game developer 343 Industries has teamed up with personal care company Dr. Squatch for a limited-edition soap inspired by the military sci-fi media property.
Launched last Friday, the Halo x Dr. Squatch Spartan Scrub is sure to power up your shower routine, leaving you energized, focused, and ready to take on any challenge in gaming or in life. It features unique ingredients all rooted in Halo lore, such as exfoliating Little John and Bishops Wort, as well as soothing Sevenbark Root.
The soap’s scent was thoughtfully formulated with aromas of silver sage, yuzu, and cedarwood, while its color is an ode to the iconic green armor of the Master Chief and the orange visor of the character’s helmet. Like all Dr. Squatch products, Spartan Scrub is made from natural ingredients and is free from harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients.
“We’re very proud to partner with an iconic game franchise like Halo,” said Josh Friedman, Chief Marketing Officer at Dr. Squatch, in a statement. “Our customers are big fans of the Halo brand, as is our team at Dr. Squatch, so we knew there was an opportunity to create something unique. Together we’ve created the ultimate armor for customers: a natural soap made with the best natural ingredients that truly makes you feel heroic.”
Meanwhile, John Friend, Head of Halo & Xbox Consumer Products, said: “Wearing armor all day and saving the universe can be hard work, and sometimes leaves you dirty. When we realized we had the chance to bring Spartan Scrub to Earth with Dr. Squatch, it was an easy decision. Hopefully, we can all be clean heroes!”
The Halo x Dr. Squatch Spartan Scrub has been on sale for Dr. Squatch subscribers for $6 each since October 29th and will be available for purchase to the wider public for $8 starting November 1st, exclusively on Dr. Squatch’s website.
Owned and published by Xbox Game Studios, the Halo franchise started with the launch of the video game Halo: Combat Evolved, which was released back on November 15th, 2001.
