In response to the hand sanitizer shortage situation and the requests from the brand's mass market and drug retail partners, Garnier USA will produce 2 million units of 4- fluid ounce hand sanitizers at its New Jersey manufacturing facility. The hand sanitizers will begin distribution in May free of charge to frontline retail employees in the most affected areas of the country.
"We are very grateful for the hard work of essential employees and the service they are bringing to our local communities. Our number one priority at Garnier is to take care of each other. We are working as quickly as possible to produce hand sanitizers to help frontline retail employees stay safe and healthy during this Coronavirus outbreak," said Alanna McDonald, president of Garnier USA.

The Garnier brand is also making a global commitment to the fight against COVID-19 by contributing more than $1 million to support the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) and Red Crescent Societies. These funds will provide assistance to the most vulnerable people impacted by COVID-19.
"At Garnier, we believe it is our corporate social responsibility to support those working on the frontline every day and those who are helping to protect the most vulnerable populations across the world," says Adrien Koskas, Garnier global brand president.
Furthermore, as part of L'Oréal's Coronavirus Solidarity Program, Garnier is currently producing and distributing millions of units of hand sanitizer free of charge to all of its food retailers' employees in Europe.
