- Minnie Dlamini-Jones has created an MD Skincare hand sanitiser
- Along with Diageo and the Minnie Dlamini Foundation, MD Skincare will be distributing the first batch to those less fortunate for free
- Minnie believes this is a time to help others, not to make a profit
Minnie Dlamini-Jones is using her MD brand to help beat this virus.
The coronavirus has brought the world to its knees and every single bit of help, from every single person, is needed.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Minnie has stepped forward and produced a hand sanitiser along with her amazing MD Skincare team.
Things like hand sanitisers, facemasks and other imperative equipment and products for fighting this virus are at a great shortage.
Minnie decided to add a hand sanitiser to her MD Skincare range, a product range that she launched just last year.
The MD hand sanitiser is alcohol-based one which complies with medical-grade regulations of 70% alcohol.
Minnie has invested in over R1 million worth of spirits to produce the sanitisers.
"With the emergence of the pandemic, we sought to steamroll the rollout of the sanitisers to help with prevention and further the efforts by government and other business to create access to them and promote hygiene.
"We were very lucky to work with Diageo on this project, who has been instrumental in supplying the Minnie Dlamini Foundation with R1 million worth of spirits to produce the sanitisers. Our sanitisers have an alcohol base of 70%."
Understanding the economic hardship this virus has caused, the first rollout of the MD sanitiser will be distributed and given away for free to the less fortunate who do not have the funds to buy things like sanitiser to protect themselves and others from this virus.
"Right now our efforts are focused primarily on getting these products to underprivileged communities and to ensure everyone has sanitiser as an arsenal against this virus.”
Minie explained that the sanitiser will be put into stores and sold online once the lockdown has been lifted. Focusing on those in need is what is needed right now, not making a quick buck off others' suffering.
The Minnie Dlamini Foundation will be adding the MD sanitiser to the food packages that they have already been distributing to underprivileged communities.
