Throughout the globe, Clarins have acted responsibly, at both the individual and collective levels. Due to the unprecedented impact of Covid-19, especially in EU in recent days, Clarins believes that it’s a vital time to take social responsibilities as a global citizen. Hence, our production and R&D teams have been able to quickly adapt our facilities to the production of hand sanitizers to be distributed in hospitals in France to help to relieve the sanitizer shortage there.


Our industrial sites in Pontoise, Strasbourg and Amiens have already produced and delivered 14,500 bottles of hand sanitizer to hospitals. Produced in large-format 400ml bottles, these 14,500 units are a first step in assisting hospital staff as quickly as possible. Our objective is to actively continue the production of hand sanitizer as long as necessary and always in adequate sanitary and safety conditions for all of the employees currently mobilized in our factories.



“We would like to thank all those who are contributing to our socially-responsible initiative: our Production and Research & Development teams, our suppliers, our carriers and above all, the hospital staff. We are especially appreciative of their commitment which allows us to actively participate in the collective effort during these exceptional circumstances.”
