L’Oréal South Africa produces hand sanitisers to fight the spread of COVID-19 1

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have widespread impact on the world with an alarming increase in infections, daily. We’ve been so pleased to see beauty brands come together to produce much-needed items for our front line workers in the fight against COVID-19. The latest brand to do so is L’Oréal South Africa, who have embarked on a journey to manufacture hand sanitisers for those in need. The have temporarily stopped production of Garnier’s much-loved Micellar Water to accommodate the manufacture of this new product.

The Group’s local factory in Midrand, Johannesburg, will be starting production to support the needs of local health
facilities, communities and retailers. Twenty thousand hand sanitisers from the initial production will be donated to the South African COVID-19 Solidarity Fund to assist healthcare facilities with safe guarding healthcare and essential workers who are working on the front line.

L’Oréal stated, “During these unprecedented times, we strongly believe that is our responsibility to support the teams who display courage and unwavering commitment to caring for patients. Vulnerable communities because community transmission is a high concern in densely populated areas where people are more susceptible. Hygiene measures such as frequent hand cleansing is an important factor in fighting the virus.”

Garnier will distribute an additional ten thousand hand sanitisers to local retailers’ employees free of charge. Providing this support is a way for Garnier to protect and thank those who are working tirelessly to meet the country’s daily essential needs.

Garnier hand sanitisers are also available for purchase from Clicks, Dis-Chem, Takealot, Checkers, Makro and Pick n Pay.

“In this unprecedented crisis that is impacting so many people, especially in vulnerable communities, it is our responsibility to contribute to the collective effort. Through these actions, we express our recognition, our support and our solidarity towards those who are demonstrating extraordinary courage and selflessness in their efforts to combat the COVID19”, says Gilles Antoine, L’Oréal South Africa Country Manager.

Globally, Garnier has contributed 1 million euros to support the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) in addition to solidarity initiatives implemented by L’Oréal subsidiaries across the world.
