#coronavirus reshapes economy: Joining forces: From candles & beauty products to hand sanitiser

Nothing says spirit of community more than the way businesses shape their activity in order to launch products so much in need these days – hand sanitiser for one has been a rarity these months. But wait no more, there are so many local businesses that are joining the fight against Coronavirus. It’s the case of local Irish candle producer Max Benjamin that just launched its first hand sanitiser with a €1 charity donation from every bottle sold to Dublin Simon Community. A wonderful gesture coming from the Wicklow beauty brand and family business that used is famous True Lavender scent for the hand sanitiser.

The new hand sanitiser is in spray form and this makes it easier for hand hygiene on the go with no wait time for it to absorb. Easy peasy, right? 🙂

The sanitiser spray comes in a bottle of 100 ml and retails at €7.95. The 500ml refill retails at €24.95. My favourite is the bundle –  €30 for the spray and the refill.

Next on the list we have the Handmade Soap Company. Lemongrass and Cedarwood are the scents included in their hand sanitiser using essential oils. It’s an easy pump bottle and a handy size to bring when you’re on the go.
