It is great to see brands respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic by switching their production process into one that helps prevent the spread of this deadly corona virus. ORLY International is doing just that. It is changing the Los Angeles nail polish factory into a factory for hand sanitizer. That’s right: from nail polish to hand sanitizer.
10.000 units for the homeless
The first 10.000 units of hand sanitizer will be donated. ORLY gives them to the city of Los Angeles. More specifically, ORLY wants those free hand sanitizers to go to homeless people. It’s hard enough to keep the corona virus out of your life when you do have access to clean water and soap all day long. Living on the streets makes it close to impossible unless you can use disinfectants.
Vegan and cruelty-free
ORLY is a brand close to my heart and one of the companies I partner with. The beauty products they make are vegan and cruelty-free. The hand sanitizer will be no different. It will contain 75% alcohol. That’s even more than the CDC recommends for hand sanitizer alcohol percentage. Better protection without giving in on sustainability.
When you buy products using links on this website, I may get a small amount of money. It will cost you nothing extra! But you would help me keep this blog going and you would make me happy. Thank you!
The good thing is: you won’t need to wait long for the vegan, cruelty-free hand sanitizers. They will be available for the public in early April. ORLY sells them in batches of 4 bottles. And you will be limited to 3 packs per person. ORLY is trying to stop people from hoarding so that everybody can get a chance to get enough supply.
