Sanitizing and cleaning supplies have been at record low levels for the past month. While hand soaps can still be found from direct-to-consumer brands and retailers, it seems as though hand sanitizers have been sold out across the board — especially those containing the recommended concentration of alcohol of 60 to 95 percent.
In an effort to provide one more option during this shortage, trusted skincare brand Peter Thomas Roth has recently formulated and launched a hand sanitizer spray that will benefit the healthcare system with each purchase.
Formulated with 80 percent alcohol, the FDA-approved product comes in a “pocket-size luxury spray bottle,” designed in a similar sleek aesthetic to the brand’s other products.
The hand sanitizer was deliberately created to remedy the shortage that is currently seen nationwide.
“In response to the current crisis, Peter Thomas Roth has repurposed part of our manufacturing facility to help combat the hand sanitizer shortage,” the Peter Thomas Roth Hand Sanitizer Initiative reads. “Effective immediately, we will be manufacturing FDA-approved hand sanitizers with alcohol at 80 percent, packaged in luxury 2-ounce spray bottles that we have a limited amount of in stock and that were meant for a different product.”
The initiative also outlines that, with every purchase, a portion of the proceeds will go to Northwell Health, New York State’s largest health care provider.
Shoppers have praised the product’s high alcohol content and charitable ethos, with one reviewer writing, “They are donating a portion of the proceeds to hospitals in need in NYC!”
In response to some reviewers’ only criticism that the product is simply too pricey, the same shopper added, “Expensive as it may be, it’s for a charitable cause people. If it were cheaper, they wouldn’t have as much to donate after recoupment of costs.”
Shoppers are limited to 10 hand sanitizers per purchase.
It should be noted that while this product’s concentration of alcohol fits within the CDC and FDA’s guidelines, it is not specifically designed to kill viruses.
