Sukin is donating a million dollars in personal care products, including its new antibacterial hand sanitizer, to help fight the spread of COVID-19.
Sukin donates from its range of natural gel and sprays for hand disinfectants as well as a selection of other highly sought-after personal care products such as hand wash, body wash, shampoo and conditioner to Children & # 39; s Ground, Foodbank Victoria and Save the Kinder. In return, Foodbank will deliver the products to charities and front-line individuals, Children's’s Ground will be distributed to disadvantaged children and families in First Nations communities, while Save The Children will ensure that the products reach vulnerable communities across Victoria.
As a local developer, manufacturer and distributor of natural Beauty products in the BWX brand house, Sukin was able to adapt its manufacturing processes to respond to the enormous demand from Australians for hand disinfectants and to produce a completely new product range in just 21 days. It is one of the few natural antibacterial disinfectants available on Australian shelves with naturally derived ethanol.
“In this extremely challenging time, it is very important to us to help our customers and the community, especially those in need of protection. We know that frequent use of hand disinfectants and hand washing is vital to contain the virus, and we look forward to playing a small role in helping those who need it most, said Rory Gration, managing director of BWX at Asia Pacific.
"We are incredibly grateful for this generous donation from Sukin. Given the rising cost of living, especially in these uncertain times, the Victorians find it difficult financially to not only buy food, but also important hygiene and personal care products. With the help of ours We can give generous donors and supporters like Sukin access to these necessary items and continue to support more than 140,000 Victorians every month, ”said Dave McNamara, CEO of Foodbank Victoria.
“The support from individuals and organizations that come together to support our efforts totally blew us away. The lack of resources is just one of many threats to First Nations communities. By donating these important things, we can focus on other urgent needs – such as ensuring safe shelter and other needs for vulnerable families to isolate themselves, ”said Chloe Abbott, children's project manager.
“We are very grateful for this very generous donation from Sukin. Save the Children is at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic and offers life-saving aid, development and support programs to ensure child safety in this crisis. This generous donation will help us continue to support vulnerable communities across Australia. Thank you very much, ”said Paul Ronalds, CEO of Save the Children.
Sukin's antibacterial hand sanitizer will be an integral part of the product range that is now available online and in-store through Sukin's numerous retail partners in pharmacies and grocery stores.
