"As the world faces the continued impact of COVID-19, Revlon is proud to have collaborated with our long-time partner Symrise in the production of hand sanitizer to support our local communities. To all the healthcare heroes around the world, thank you, from Revlon," said Debra Perelman, president and CEO of Revlon.
Looking for ways to support communities in the pandemic, Symrise rapidly re-engineered manufacturing lines to enable the production of a new, FDA compliant formula, while Revlon leveraged existing packaging to bring the product to hospitals and frontline medical workers as quickly as possible.
Both companies are working with local governments to support those most in need near Revlon’s Oxford, NC facility as well as Symrise’s Teterboro, NJ facility. Product will be distributed to hospitals, front line county workers, police and fire departments, and EMS personnel through North Carolina’s Healthcare Preparedness Coalition and The Chief Officer Of Bergen County's Executive Branch.
“We feel obliged to help our local communities wherever we can,” commented Andreas Steiner, senior VP consumer fragrances, Symrise, North America. “Our ingredient know-how helps us to produce hygienic hand sanitizer for local health support, especially in New York and New Jersey. We would like to thank our long-standing partner Revlon for this important collaboration during such challenging times.”
