CVS Rolls Out Collection Of Accessible Products
CVS is introducing a new line of tweezers, nail clippers and other self-care tools designed to be easier for people with disabilities to use.
The drugstore’s Universal Tools collection includes six items that the company said were all created in collaboration with members of the disability community.
The nail clippers, scissors, tweezers, nail nippers, cuticle nippers and pumice stones have special features to make them more accessible like wide, open handles and non-slip, easy-to-grip silicone, CVS said. Surveys and in-home testing informed the products and their packaging.

“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 and personal care at 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.”
The new products are part of CVS’ one+other brand, which debuted earlier this year with an eye toward offering consumers a way to practice self-care at an accessible price point, the company indicated.
The Universal Tools collection is available online and in CVS stores nationwide with prices ranging from $6.49 to $16.99.
