AG Hair, a Vancouver-based hair care brand, donated 1,200 bottles each of its Hands Free hand sanitizer to the United Way, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, Greater Vancouver Food Bank and BC Cancer Society, as well as to local restaurants.
According to the company, the hand sanitizer exceeds the Centre of Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization’s (WHO) sanitizer guidelines. The product contains corn-derived alcohol as well as vitamin E, glycerin and aloe. The sanitizer is available in a gel or spray formula.
Graham Fraser, CEO of AG Hair, said, “As businesses open and people begin to resume their lives after months of quarantine, we are proud to offer a natural hand sanitizer that fits seamlessly into everyday routines. Recognizing that sanitizers and disinfectants are now a key part of self-care, we’ve designed our Hands Free sanitizers to be gentle enough for frequent use and aesthetic enough for display. We’re thrilled to donate thousands of these bottles to frontline and restaurant workers, to thank them for keeping us safe and healthy.”
Margaret McNeil, CEO of Canuck Place, added, “Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice continues to provide critical care to children with life-threatening illnesses and families across B.C. Generous donations like the hand sanitizer from AG Hair supports our clinical teams, staff and children and families in hospice through this challenging time. We are immensely grateful for the gift of this product and partnership with an incredible local business, AG Hair.”
