High-End Brands Like LVMH Are Pitching In to Produce Hand Sanitizer

The luxury goods company that produces fragrances for Christian Dior, Givenchy, and Guerlain is pivoting to hand sanitizer—and it expects to provide the French government with a whopping 12 tons of hydroalcoholic gel by the end of this week. Other companies that work with alcohol-based products are also lending a hand to combat COVID-19.

Sigil’s one-ounce bottle contains a simple blend of alcohol and essential oils. 

Sigil Scent, an American fragrance maker that uses essential oils, is launching a new hand sanitizer to provide “emotional, mental, and physical comfort in these trying times,” according to their website. The bottles are fairly priced at cost, and customers can choose between “Grounded” or “Uplifting” fragrances—at times like these, there’s a need for both. Carts are limited to three bottles per person to discourage hoarding, and customers can also donate $5 to the L.A. LGBTQ Center’s food pantry at checkout.

Los Angeles–based distillers AMASS started making hand sanitizer in-house to keep employees safe. When they talked about it on Instagram, fans and customers of the brand wanted their own bottles. 

When followers of AMASS—a gin and vodka distillery based in Los Angeles—saw that the company had crafted a no-water hand wash to keep their employees safe, they requested it en mass—and the company delivered.

“The ingredients are inspired by the ‘four thieves recipe,’” says master distiller Morgan McLachlan. “It’s a blend of botanicals believed to prevent the spread of the plague in medieval Europe.” The two-ounce bottle is infused with cinnamon, allspice, clove, and eucalyptus, balancing medieval folklore with meeting the CDC’s standards for actual germ killing.

Amass Hand Sanitizer is also available in a small, portable two-ounce bottle.
