As part of ongoing support for the fight against coronavirus, L’Oréal UK and Ireland is donating more than half a million hygiene products to NHS frontline healthcare workers.

The group will donate a further 300,000 hand sanitisers to frontline retail staff working at Boots, Tesco, ASDA, Sainsbury’s and Irish retailer Dunnes Stores, who are ensuring availability of essential goods and services to communities across the UK and Ireland.

These products are completely free of charge, aiming to serve the most vulnerable and strive to curb the pandemic.

Items include shampoo and bodywash from top brands, including Kiehl’s, Lancôme, Urban Decay, YSL. Other brands include  L’Oréal Paris Men Expert, La Roche-Posay, CeraVe, Vichy, Kerastase, Redken, Matrix and Decleor.

The group is also donating 10,000 boxed sterile examination gloves to the London Ambulance Service.

Vismay Sharma, L’Oréal UK and Ireland Country Managing Director, commented: “At L’Oréal UK & Ireland we feel a strong sense of responsibility to support relief efforts for the most vulnerable during this unprecedented crisis.

“The frontline healthcare workers and retail staff are doing an incredible job looking after the sick and providing essential products and services to communities.

“We feel honoured to be able to provide them with hand sanitisers and key hygiene products. We believe in the beauty of community and are proud to contribute to the needs of our heroic NHS and HSE staff, and those on the retail frontlines across the UK and Ireland.”

This commitment builds on the L’Oréal Group’s wider European solidarity programme announced globally on 18 March.
