Feb 2017: BE PREPARED for a Purilens price hike
The manufacturer of Purilens is having to raise their wholesale and retail prices significantly as of March 1st. This is their first price rise in 5 years, and they have had to invest massively to respond to the demand from Unisol users - I know you will all be frustrated with the higher cost but I hope you'll understand it's still much better than having no buffered PF saline product left on the market. When all's said and done, the price of a 12pack with shipping will still not be higher than it used to cost to get 4 3packs of Unisol in most drugstores. Meantime... we recommend that you take advantage of the lower prices to STOCK UP in February.
