The second sentence is correct and sounds natural.

The first sentence is only formally correct but sounds strange.

The reason of the choice is clear from the semantic analysis of the adjective "aware".

AWARE has two meanings.

According to Merriam-Webster's Dictionary :


1: having or showing realization, perception, or knowledge

// be aware of the danger

// aware of the latest advances in medicine

2(archaic): WATCHFUL, WARY

In your case the adjective should be used in the first meaning.

So you should use "aware of it".

  • Thank you for your reply, and a last question is "those" properly used in the sentence ? – Ced Apr 13 at 8:56
  • ''For those... '' is OK. It sounds rather emphatic. – user307254 Apr 13 at 9:00
  • Do you have an Idea to say it in a more formal way? or is it ok? – Ced Apr 13 at 9:02
  • I'll try: We would like to inform our customers who are not aware of it yet that PRODUCT NAME is now available for them! – user307254 Apr 13 at 9:07
