IGI AIDS HURRICANE VICTIMS WITH WATERLESS PERSONAL HYGIENE PRODUCTS

IGI AIDS HURRICANE VICTIMS WITH WATERLESS PERSONAL HYGIENE PRODUCTS
 BUENA, N.J., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- IGI, Inc. (AMEX: IG) president John Gallo announced today the shipment of 15,000 bottles of Apply & Dry(TM) Hair and Body Wash will be given to the Red Cross in Florida to aid victims of the recent hurricane Andrew.
 "Apply & Dry was developed for situations where water is not readily available or where conventional washing techniques are not practical, such as hospitals, nursing homes, and special home care problems. So it is particularly well suited to this type of situation," commented Gallo. Apply & Dry is a rinse-free cleaner which lathers like normal soap when massaged into the hair or skin. The availability of enough clean water is still a problem in some areas of Florida.
 Apply & Dry is the result of technological research and advances developed by IGI. The products' effectiveness is credited to the patented Ultrasponge(TM) technology, which enables the foam to carry dirt and oils to the outer surface of the skin and envelopes them in the foam for easy removal. Conditioners in the product then return softness and body to hair, and moisture and lubricate the skin. The products are pH balanced and the ingredients biodegradable.
 Apply & Dry was introduced during Operation Desert Storm over a year ago, when the products were donated to the troops there. The products were ideally suited for the desert environment, and were well received by the troops.
 "We feel a strong sense of obligation in situations such as these, to make our unique products available," commented Gallo.
 The shampoo will be transported to the Red Cross in Florida by Yellow Freight, which is donating its services as well.
 IGI and Yellow Freight have a history of working together. It was Yellow Freight who donated their services to help deliver Apply & Dry for shipment to our troops in the Middle East. "We're proud to have Yellow Freight working with us to help those in need," said Gallo.
 IGI, Inc. has developed programs in pharmaceuticals, vaccines, cosmetics, consumer and industrial products based on Novasome(TM) lipid vesicle encapsulation and Ultrasponge hydrogel technologies developed by its majority-owned subsidiary, Micro Vesicular Systems, Inc. Novasome and Ultrasponge are a trademark of a subsidiary of IGI, Inc. IGI, Inc. is a publicly held company traded on the American Stock Exchange under the symbol "IG."
