A growing number of brands and businesses have started to lend a hand in light of the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
Across the world we’ve seen restaurants and shops donating face masks to hospitals, while TV and movie sets have provided clothes and uniforms to overrun hospitals and of course bottles of hand wash have been given away to those who need it.
And now one high-street brand has donated thousands of bottles of hand cream to workers of the NHS.
High-street brand L’Occitane has given away hand cream to the NHS in order for overworked staff to look after their skin while washing their hands so much.
The brand closed their stores last weekend in order to encourage staff and customers to stay at home to try and prevent spread of the virus.
However, they revealed that they would be donating hand creams to the NHS in order for workers to ‘soothe their sore hands from frequent handwashing’.
Before closing their stores they also invited NHS workers to pick up free bottles of hand cram from their stores, however now the hand creams are being delivered directly to hospitals.
The luxury brand, which has closed its doors until at least 10th April, has already provided over 10,000 bottles of hand cream to NHS workers.
They are also manufacturing a massive 70,000 litres of hand sanitiser to keep up with the global demand for the essential product during these tumultuous times.
