Coty Inc. announced today it has started producing hydro-alcoholic gel, which is used as hand sanitizer, to help combat the COVID- 19 virus. Production and donations are expected to reach tens of thousands of units per week.
The products are free of charge and are being distributed to medical and emergency services staff who are facing shortages due to the fast-spreading COVID-19 virus. Products will also be provided to Coty employees working in the plants and distribution centres producing sanitisers, as well as pharmacy staff.
The Company has produced its first batches of hand sanitizer at factories in the United States and Monaco. Additional factories will start production within the week. Production depends on the resources and materials available as well as local government regulations.
“As a responsible beauty company, we make our resources and facilities available to help the communities we are operating in during these exceptionally challenging times,” – Pierre Laubies, Coty CEO.
