SALUDA, Va., Sept. 27, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Xcelplus International (Pink Sheets:XLPI). Xcelplus International (http://xcelplus.com) clarifies its stance in the specialty chemicals and lubricant marketplace, offering the original formula to the best-selling auto engine treatment in the U.S., when marketed under the Slick 50 label.

"We are the original Slick 50 formula," states Bill Smith, President/CEO of Xcelplus. "When a customer buys Slick 50 today, a brand owned by Shell Oil (NYSE:RD) after they bought Pennzoil/Quakerstate, that consumer is not getting the original formula. They're getting a reverse-engineered formula that doesn't stand up to the original formula's research and scientific claims. If they want the original formula, with all the credible U.S. Department of Energy claims to back it up, the formula that built the Slick 50 brand, they can find it in a bottle of Xcelplus. And only Xcelplus."

Mr. Smith further explains, "Most of our competitors have been sued by the FTC for false advertising after our (Xcelplus') formulas had been pulled from their production, yet these brands continued to make claims that only we can. We are the only company that can offer the original formulas that initiated these brands. Our mission now is to recapture the 120-150 million dollar market that our formulas started. Slick 50 is still the dominant player, commanding 50-60% of that market, without being able to advertise claims. The formula that got them that market is in Xcelplus bottles, not theirs."

Investors and consumers are invited to listen to the inventor of the formulas at http://www.xcelplus.com/interview.htm -- featuring excerpts from the company's soon to be released informational DVD and DRTV programming.
