As a necessary precaution against COVID-19, health care professionals worldwide are repeatedly washing and sanitizing their hands, resulting in dry and irritated skin. Besides the need for more personal protective equipment (PPE), beauty products such as hand creams are also in high-demand amid this pandemic. 

To help first responders of the COVID-19 crisis, Glossier will be releasing its first-ever hand cream and donating the first 10,000 units to medical workers across the United States. 

“We’ve received countless messages from these healthcare professionals, letting us know how our products have provided them some relief from skin irritation and the unimaginable stress of being on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response,” Glossier CEO Emily Weiss wrote in a statement. “One of the most frequent requests we’ve received during this time is for a hand cream,” she continued. 

Prior to their hand cream, Glossier has donated thousands of Priming Moisturizers, Soothing Face Mists, and Balm Dotcoms to hospitals and other health care facilities across the country. According to a recent update from Glossier, the beauty company has already delivered 10,000 hand cream tubes to doctors and nurses nationwide. 

Glossier’s Hand Cream, which is contained in some “pretty ingenious packaging,” will officially be available on Thursday, April 23.
