Kylie Jenner Says That She Will Start Making Hand Sanitizer For Hospitals
Love or her feel iffy about her, there’s no denying that Kardashian fam member Kylie Jenner is doing great good in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic. Last week the makeup maven announced that she would be putting aside her focus on her Kylie Skin and Kylie Cosmetics line to help hospitals in southern California keep up with the demand for hand sanitizer.
Jenner and her mother Kris announced their plans to make a mass hand sanitizer donation to hospitals in southern California.
According to ABC News the two “have partnered with Coty to manufacture hand sanitizers for hospitals in southern California amid the novel coronavirus outbreak. In conjunction with the mother-daughter duo, Coty, which is a key stakeholder to Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin, announced that hand sanitizers they produce will be donated to the emergency and healthcare workers caring for patients on the front lines of the current COVID-19 public health crisis.”
Each hand sanitizer will include a message for recipients that reads “Dedicated to first responders working to support our communities.”
According to Page Six, Coty will produce Kylie’s hand sanitizer in its factories. Meanwhile, Kylie Skin products will not be affected. Fans of the Kylie Cosmetics brand might be slightly disappointed to find out that it has paused distribution after California’s statewide stay-at-home order was issued.
ABC reports that doctors, first responders, and other medical professionals are currently enduring some of the most severe shortages of personal protective equipment. In response, some of the biggest names in fashion including Chanel, Prada, and Christian Siriano have halted production to make masks for medical professionals.
Kylie, a billionaire, has also reportedly donated $1 million to first responders to buy protective gear.
In mid-March, after being called upon by the surgeon general of the United States to do so, she issued an Instagram plea to her approximately 168 million followers to follow social distancing instructions and just stay home.
