Top Seller: Banana BoatŪ Sport Sunblock SPF30 1oz Tube at Newbury Park, CA (December 1, 2010) — The leading online purveyors of travel-sized toiletry items,, has released its list of this year's top selling items, from major brands, through its online retail store. The top 10 best-selling products were determined within their respective categories. Generic brands were excluded from the study.

1.   Banana Boat® Sport Sunblock SPF30 1oz Tube Sunscreen
2.   Wet Ones® Singles Antibacterial Cleansing Wipes Hand Wipes
3.   Shout® Portable Wipes Clothing Care
4.   Lubriderm® Daily Moisture Lotion 1oz Bottle Lotion

7.   Kleenex® Tissues Pocket Pack Tissue
8.   Dove® Beauty Bar 2.6oz Soap
9.   Tampax® Regular Tampons Feminine Care
10.   Charmin® To Go Bathroom Tissue Restroom

The top products were studied to determine the best sellers within top performing categories. Due to the popularity of hand wipes and toothpastes in travel sizes, these products would have garnered spots 3-10, if best sellers, regardless of category, were listed in the study.

Shampoos and conditioners did not make the list, perhaps because they are customarily provided as in-room amenities by hotels.

According to Co-Founder Paul Shrater, all of the top 10 spots would have been comprised of non major or generic brands, if they were included in the study. He stated, "Most of this can be attributed to the widespread use of lower-cost travel size products in areas outside of travel to provide cost-effective essential care supplies for military care packages as well as for community/homeless outreach and disaster relief efforts."
