The beauty brand is stepping up and donating 10,000 of its luxury hand creams to NHS staff
Luxury French beauty brand L’Occitane has announced it will be donating thousands of hand creams to NHS workers, while also reassigning some of its production line to manufacture 70,000 litres of hand sanitiser in its home country.
In order to help prevent the virus spread intensifying, L’Occitane has shut all of its UK and Irish stores until 10 April, putting customers’ safety at its forefront.
Luckily, the company has said it will pay all its staff salaries in full during that time, stating that “the health and safety of L’Occitane employees and customers remains L’Occitane’s number one priority”.
L’Occitane has also pledged to donate hand creams to the NHS, helping our frontline workers deal with the effects of stringent sanitising protocols on their hands. So far, they have provided over 10,000 individuals creams, sending the products direct to the NHS.
In doing so, they hope that staff will be able to enjoy a small dose of self-care after a gruelling shift on the front line.
Furthermore, the L’Occitane Group has reassigned some of its facilities in France to manufacture 70,000 litres of hand sanitiser to be donated to the health authorities and healthcare workers.
The European country, the home of L’Occitane, is equally affected by the global spread of coronavirus and hand wash is in similarly low supply. The brand will also be distributing 25,000 units of soap and hand cream to staff at the Paris University hospital trust.
