The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has lead to a global shortage of much-needed medical supplies, including masks, personal protective equipment (PPE), and hand sanitiser. Fashion and beauty companies (large and small) have stepped in using their resources to help where possible.
The Kering Group — the parent company of Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, and Gucci — is one of many fashion brands making face masks to support medical professionals. And beauty brands are stepping in to help by producing hand sanitiser. On March 16, LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) announced that the luxury goods conglomerate will use its perfume and cosmetics factories to produce hand-sanitising gels for French hospitals.
Since then, several beauty brands in the UK have followed suit, utilising their production lines to make hand-sanitising gels to distribute to NHS workers and those doing essential work to keep the country safe.
Read on to see some of the UK-based beauty brands currently developing hand sanitiser in their factories to be distributed to local hospitals, care homes, nurseries, and charities.
