LMVH, the parent company of Louis Vuitton, Fenty and other luxury brands, has announced they will make sanitizing hand gels for French hospitals. France 24 reports that the gel will be made at three of their cosmetics and perfume sites. 12 tons of hand gel could be made as early as this week.
Demand for hand sanitizer has spiked due to the coronavirus, and supplies have been strained. “I wish to thank LVMH for acting so quickly: They made us this offer on Saturday night at 9:00 pm and confirmed it on Sunday,” Paris hospitals chief Martine Hirsch said.
