JPMS to Produce Hand Sanitiser in Response to Covid-19

Wednesday, 01 April 2020 16:19

John Paul Mitchell Systems® (JPMS™), maker of professional hair care products including the brand Paul Mitchell®, announced today it will produce Hand Sanitiser to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

The company is expeditiously moving forward to manufacture more than 20,000 units of an 80% alcohol spray formula, which will be donated to high-need groups who are facing shortages, such as Southern California first responders, Los Angeles police officers, and low-income families with young children.

 The sanitisers will be manufactured in conjunction with JPMS’ longtime partner Bocchi Labs. Production is anticipated to begin in early April and ready for donation in the following weeks. The company has designated several high-need groups to receive the donated sanitizers, in addition to JPMS™ care items such as shampoos and conditioners.

 ● 16,000 bottles of Hand Sanitiser donated to first responders in Southern California, including those assisting with the city’s homeless shelters.

● 2,000 bottles of Hand Sanitiser as well as personal care products (shampoos, conditioners and styling products) donated to Los Angeles Police Department officers who, because of their close interaction with the public, may be isolating away from their homes to prevent potentially bringing the coronavirus back to their families.

● 2,000 bottles of Hand Sanitiser as well as personal care products donated to Baby2Baby, a non-profit and existing Paul Mitchell® partner that helps provide basic essentials to children living in poverty. In just two weeks, they have distributed over 2.5 million essential items to some of the most vulnerable families across the country impacted by Covid-19.

● An additional 250 units of Hand Sanitiser to be given to JPMS™ employees who work in our distribution and fulfilment center in an effort to keep them safe.

JPMS™, which has a long heritage of philanthropy and community engagement, recognised the need to help and immediately mobilised their manufacturing facilities.

 “As a family-owned company with a strong focus on philanthropy, we knew we had to help any way we could,” said Michaeline DeJoria, Vice Chairman of John Paul Mitchell Systems®. “The health and safety of our community is our first priority, especially those on the frontlines working to keep us all safe. We saw this as an opportunity to utilise our resources to help fill a crucial need during a time of crisis.”
