Kylie Jenner and her mom Kris Jenner announced recently that Kylie’s skincare brand, Kylie Skin, will be manufacturing hand sanitizers so that she can donate them to hospitals in Southern California, in a bid to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
A Kylie Skin representative told Page Six that the manufacture of the sanitizers will be taken on by Kylie Skin investor Coty’s factories and will not actually affect the production of Kylie Skin products. Each bottle of hand sanitizer will also include the message, “Dedicated to first responders working to support our communities.”
Kylie herself has donated $1 million to buy protective gear for first responders. Last month, she even posted an Instagram message to her more than 160 million followers to follow social distancing instructions and just stick to staying home to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Kylie joins the fight against COVID-19 along with a number of big-name brands such as LVMH, Estée Lauder, L’Oreal, who are manufacturing hand sanitizers as well. Same with Chanel, Christian Siriano, Zara and Prada who are all sewing masks for doctors and medical professionals since the medical industry is currently facing severe shortages of personal protective equipment.
