Cork personal protective cosmetics brand Airmedica and skincare company Human+Kind have teamed up to supply frontline workers with hand sanitizer and hand cream.
4,000 units of Airmedica hand sanitizer and 1,000 units of Human+Kind’s hand cream to frontline workers on the foot of a partnership which will see Human+Kind offer Airmedica’s hand sanitizer to their distribution network of over 1,000 pharmacies and retail outlets across the country.
The hand sanitizer and hand cream will be distributed to selected hospices and hospitals, including Marymount Hospice, Crumlin Children’s Hospital, Temple Street Children's University Hospital and Mayo Roscommon Hospice, over the next four weeks.
Airmedica’s hand sanitizer is manufactured by its parent company Cosmetic Creations in Cork and Mayo and was created and launched back in March in response to demand due to Covid-19.
There are now 300,000 units being manufactured a week with customers both in the public and private sector.
CEO of Cosmetic Creations, Aiden Corcoran, said that the company is “excited” to partner with Human+Kind “whose strong community ethos” matches its own.
“We are more conscious than ever of the essential work being carried out by frontline workers and are always looking for ways to support them and give back. We are pledging 4,000 units of hand sanitizer, and are delighted that Human+Kind are supporting that donation with 1,000 units of their hand cream.”
Co-founder of Human+Kind, Jeroen Proos, said that hand sanitizer will remain an “essential” product going forward as the country moves out of lockdown.
“Cosmetic Creations is one of the few manufacturing companies in Ireland with the capacity and expertise to produce hand sanitizer at a national scale. We will be leveraging our distribution network of over 1,000 retail outlets, with the scope to expand that number in the coming months,” he said.
